"With improved sound, and Apple iOS compatibility, this is the best DragonFly yet." 'What Hi-Fi? award winner 2016'. 5-star review.

The best value DragonFly yet - plus improved sound!

The DragonFly Black is the best ever value AudioQuest DAC. The new price point makes it more affordable than ever and the ideal accompaniment for your smartphone or tablet. Despite the price drop, the sound quality has been improved by fitting a high-spec ESS 9010 DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter). Better known for their use in top-end AV electronics, this 32-bit DAC provides stunning realism and dynamics.

Lower power consumption - ideal for use with your smartphone or tablet
With lower power consumption than before, the Dragonfly Black is now suitable for use with smartphones and tablets without undue battery use. Simply fit a USB adaptor to suit your device and connect up to an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet for a massive improvement in sound quality.

A sound upgrade for your Mac, PC or laptop
Whether you listen to music on your smartphone, tablet, Mac, PC or laptop, the audio quality can easily be improved. Whether you use headphones or have your device connected directly to your hi-fi, the DragonFly Black simply offers a massive improvement in sound quality. It bypasses the device's built-in DAC, instead passing sound through its own, high-end hi-fi quality chip.

Small package, big sound
Although tiny, the Dragonfly is every bit as impressive as many full-size DACs. Asynchronous transfer and twin clocks ensure perfectly timed and controlled digital information enters the DAC, for a highly accurate and precise sound quality. Compared to a computer/smartphone/tablet's headphone output you'll notice a more dynamic sound with more detail and openness. In essence, the sound will simply be more lifelike.

Supports multiple music file formats
Despite its tiny size, the Dragonfly will play a wide variety of music files. Twin clocks ensure perfect playback of 44.1 kHz (CD quality), 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz. As a final neat touch, the dragonfly logo glows various colours to indicate the file frequency: green for CD (44.1 kHz), blue for 48 kHz, amber for 88.2 kHz and magenta for 96 kHz.

Make the most of your music on the move, with the AudioQuest DragonFly Black - don't leave home without it!

AUDIOQUEST DRAGONFLY BLACK is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its reputation I wondered if a DAC / headphone amp would make much of a difference to my listening experience. Well it does. Using the Dragonfly Black with my BOSE companion speakers makes listening to Spotify on my laptop so much better. No more booming bass or harsh high frequencies. Really pleased with this little device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you love music you need one of these... The combination of the Dragonfly and Tidal streaming has revolutionised my music listening experience. The Clash are one of my favourite bands - but it's not always easy to make out the lyrics on some early recordings. Problem now solved - the lyrics are now crystal clear and instruments that were previously 'hidden' in the mix are now easy to identify. An absolute bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from genuine hi fi product Purchased this product to connect to my i phone 5. Listening to apple music through my headphones, i'm amazed this little device has transformed the listening experience for such a small outlay. Gone is the harsh, brittle playback. Using this little device the sound is more open, detailed and a smoother presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turned my iPhone 7 in to an audiophile music player I cannot say enough about the new Dragonfly. Firstly, my headphones sounded immediately better, deeper and wider by just plugging them in to my iPhone 7 plus using this device and playing music from iTunes and Spotify. Then, I played some FLAC music using FLAC Player on my iPhone. I used a basic lightning to USB lead in to the Dragonfly and then in to my AKG in ear headphones. WOW! The sound was as good as I've ever heard - from ANY device using ANY headphones! No external power required so I just bundle the earphones, dragonfly and USB lead in to a small travel case and I'm all set. Buy the new Audioquest Dragonfly now. You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart small sound improvement technology at its best that is simple use As a vinyl fan, it is easy to be disappointed with digital music sources. my search for the right product to enhance sounds of phones, tablets and laptops has been going on for sometime. I have a bulky headphone amplifier for early generation iPhones. For all of my kit I had avoided the purchase of Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC); product discussion can be too heavy. I gave in and purchased the Dragonfly Black. It turned out to be tiny kit which brought big improvements. The Black was simple to install and use. With laptops the improvement to sound was definitely noticeable - punchier, faster dynamics with spread out sound stage. Importantly more musical. Best with laptops where the Black made me smile when listening. Great with ipad, android phone and laptop, not so great with iPhone. Obviously best with high end headphones. Clearly, best with music that has been downloaded using high end file formats like FLAC and WAV. Now looking for a DAC for my sound system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Fantastic. Buy one if you want to find out how your music can sound. Have a Fiio K1 which is also good, but blown away by the Dragonfly. Also firmware can be upgraded. Works well on IOS, battery life still good. Needs Lightning to USB adaptor.
