I posted this last year (at £77), was my second choice to the SoundBlaster E5 at £99 - thanks to this site.

Only a 9 quid drop but a drop nonetheless for a very decent bit of gear.

I have two of these - is that what the films meant by multiple orgasms....??

These are great..vast improvement when used with my iPhone

The Sabaj Da3 is an impressive Amp/DAC for similar price. Supports up to DSD512 which is impressive. 32bit/768kHz. For those bothered.
I think Sabaj is a separate entity to SMSL.

I was looking at this for my phone, but its a bit of a phaff with an OTG cable. Better just to get a phone with a good DAC ( why dont they all have this ) I can recommend the Axiom 7 (170) and the Xiaomi HD earphones(https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/original-xiaomi-pro-hd-in-ear-hybrid-earphones-916-delivered-with-code-gearbest-2839744) and FLAC's.

It's not just the DAC but amp too. Some headphones need more power than what phones put out.

Its a £170 phone which is the same price as the dragonfly red, you can use the default music player, or poweramp alpha 703 if you want his res music.

Have that phone, bought it last year for around £400 is amazing specially for audio. one of the flagships to consider this year is the LG v30 which I am looking forward to buy when it drops on price.

Do you use it with your phone? If so how does it impact battery life?

Just a lot of the reviews on amazon suggest it's being used with a desktop.

Otherwise this looks perfect! Cheers.

I had this for use with my phone a while back. It was great but as someone said, a faff with it hanging out your phone. Ended up selling it and getting an HTC 10 as it's got a decent dac and amp built in. If your primary use is mobile I'd consider a phone upgrade instead.

Good price though
