Lets me use my balanced jacked headphones in my pc and gives a nice boost in volume
The sound quality of iFi GO blu is not arguable: natural tonality, well balanced and very clear (comparable to iFi HipDac that I owned) together with its XBass button, although the XSapce function is not easily distinguishable. The convenience offered by iFi GO blu is superiorL thanks to its miniature dimensions and excellent Bluetooth connectivity (never dropped off for a single time when pairing with my iPhone 13 over a month of nearly daily use). The wired connection of iFi GO blu with iPad, Mac and PC computers works well too, which makes iFi GO blu a mobile audiophile device that can be used in a variety of settings. One major complaint that I have is that it cannot be used when wiredly connected to iPhone even after the recent firmware upgrade: my iPhone 13 only sent audio signals to iFi GO blu for a second or two after connection and then an error message popped up saying the device is drawing too much power, and then cut off audio signals. Overall iFi GO blu is a quality DAC suitable for daily mobile use.
iFi GO blu | Portable HD Bluetooth DAC/Amp
It's small in size but has a huge sound. Well worth the price. Thanks to the Guys at Bloom Audio for reviewing it .
Just received this item and have been trying it out with both the Hifiman Sundara (with upgraded Eletech Cable (which I also highly recommend)) and Campfire Satsuma. Really happy with it from both a sound and convenience perspective. Losing just one cord between you and your DAC/Amp + Music Source greatly simplifies portable audio. I enjoy it sound-wise as much as the Hip-Dac which I also think is a pretty great product. For those looking to vastly improve convenience and sound … and not move deeply into more costly equipment this is a nice choice.
