Now that I finally have this thing in my hands and have listened extensively to it, all I can say is I can't believe this thing is only $75. The headphone output is considerably stronger than the UCA202's, with absolutely no noise. Everything is clean, flat, and accurate sounding on my Ultrasone Pro 550s. The build quality is great, everything is metal except the two toggle switches. It comes with four little rubber feet you can attach to the bottom so it doesn't move around on your desk. Two more great features are the bass and gain switches. The bass boost is tasteful - not boomy but definitely present. It really fills out certain music or games if your headphones aren't naturally bassy. I find myself using it more than I thought I would. And the gain switch is great, allowing for a much wider range on the amp. I only have lower impedance headphones at the moment so it's set to Low, but I bet the High setting will come in handy whenever I get something like HD650s.
When you consider most other quality DAC/Amp desktop combos are in the $150 and up range, you realize what a value this little guy is. But don't let its diminutive size fool you - this thing packs a punch and will make a big improvement over generic computer audio or entry level stuff like the UCA202. A great purchase and highly recommended.
The sound itself is clean and it can get the volume up extremely high. The Gain and Bass adjustments are plentiful. I have not been able to utilize the gain setting, most of my headphones are of low impedance.
The USB connection is great because you can use it on almost any computer/laptop.
The device itself is extremely small and can be taken anywhere, it's small enough to fit in your pocket.
The construction of this device is solid, especially the volume knob. The only weak point of it would be the cable, but that can be replaced with any micro-USB cable. Also depending on your needs, you can replace it with a shorter or longer cable, which is convenient.
This is my first venture into this type of product. The reviews were pretty great, as was the price. I've only listened to it for a day and a half to this point and I'm not sure if the "burn in" period is real, but if so I am looking forward to the coming weeks/months. I have listened to all of my headphones on it, the Sennheiser HD 535, 598 and 600, and my KEF M500 and they all sound really great to my ears. It's pretty amazing how much goodness can come out of a package just slightly larger than a Zippo lighter! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this DAC/Amp to anyone. It appears to be well constructed, and I am a big fan of the Blue light. I will place it on some sort of riser to get it elevated because I find the volume knob to be kind of small for my fingers. The diameter is fine, it would just be easier if the knob were a bit deeper. I've been listening to music for close to 50 years and have listened on several headphones over the years but this has evolved to new levels and I like it. As one gets older the idea of lugging around 80 pound amplifiers and 90 pound loudspeakers just kind of gets old.

All I wanted was a volume control with a knob for my headphones, so I didn't have to use the PC volume control.Read more
