Is the music from your headphones or speakers uninteresting or flat? Then the micro iDSD Black Label is for you.

It adds warmth, depth and smoothness to your favourites tunes. Put simply, your music will sound better than it ever has.

The micro iDSD Black Label is the world’s most powerful, battery-powered DAC and headphone amplifier, capable of unrivalled native playback in DSD, PCM and DXD file formats.

And we added our optional ‘sonic enhancements’ to add that little bit extra to your listening…

XBass+® cleans and restores the bass to give you a richer, deeper sound and 3D+® opens up your music to create a live-concert atmosphere.

The headphone amplifier is a force to be reckoned with.

With 4,000mW, the micro iDSD Black Label can drive from the most sensitive IEMs up to the most power hungry headphones out there.

It comes with 3 power output settings so that it can be adjusted to work with any ear buds or headphones.

The micro iDSD Black Label has a battery life of up to 12 hours, and should your phone need a boost, the micro BL can charge it from 0% to 100% through the USB charging port on the side — not once, but twice!

And finally, we should mention the sleek black and orange design. She’s funky, fun and a flattering addition to any music lover’s system.
