The DAC3 is a portable 32-bit digital-to-analog converter and headphone amplifier that delivers high-quality audio from a digital source, like your phone, tablet, or computer to an analog source, like headphones or speakers. The DAC3 will level up your streaming experience, whether at home or on the go.


  • Compact & Lightweight
  • High Dynamic Range & Ultra Low Distortion
  • Enhanced Playback from Your HD Streaming Apps
  • Supports Hi-res Audio Formats Including MQA, PCM, and DSD

High Quality Audio That Goes Straight to Your Head

Inside the DAC3 is a high-performance headphone amplifier that takes your headphones and takes the highs even higher and the lows even lower. Plus, the DAC3 features a variable line-level output that gives you greater control, flexibility, and improved sound quality. Which means you can use it with a wide range of equipment to optimize your listening experience.

Easy to Hold, Impressive to Behold

Small? Yes. Powerful? Definitely. The DAC3's playback performance gives you detail and clarity your headphones usually can't provide. It's like the difference between reading a description of a concert and actually being there.

Finally, Frustration Free Setup

You won't need batteries or charging. You also won't need additional software or drivers. The DAC3 draws what little power it needs through a double regulated USB-C connection. Just plug the included cables into your phone, tablet or computer and let the DAC3 show you everything you've been missing from your music.
