Digital Audio is finally here!
The digital age has been with us for quite some time, however every phone seems to insist on coming with a cheap 3.5mm analog headphone jack… that $1,5000 flashy phone you just got or the $400 Bose, Beats cans, they all have one thing in common, they’re all still analog! Of course you can get various DAC’s (none of which are particularly portable or suited for smartphone use) to boost your tunes, but these still end up with an analog output. Now however for the first time that’s all about to change, finally you can get your mitts on a pure digital system to deliver a rich audio experience like never before…
The best part to all of this is that it doesn’t matter what camp you’re in, you can benefit from digital audio on iOS or Android (Lollipop upwards) using your Mfi Lightning or Micro USB port.
