Features


Smart. Stylish.

The battery lasts up to 10 hours and ‘smart’ tech ensures you enjoy optimum listening time adjusted according to your usage. The xDSD has a separate USB charging socket.

And finally, with its metallic chrome finish and elegant, ergonomic design, based upon the Japanese Zen garden, it puts the ‘x’ back into sexy.

 

Hi-res audio support is state-of-the-art with True Native® playback. It handles PCM data to 32-bit/768kHz, DSD up to DSD512 and single and double speed DXD.

Thanks to the Burr-Brown DAC chip’s four-channel True Native design, PCM and DSD take separate pathways – this enables DSD, as well as PCM, to remain ‘bit-perfect’ in its native form right through to analogue conversion. This is not the case with all DAC devices from other brands – even if DSD compatibility is stated, many such DACs convert DSD signals to PCM.

Connect your phone or device wirelessly via aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth®.  Whatever your device, we’ve got it covered. 
We use the USB Type-A connector as it provides a more stable audio connection for better playback and because of the OTG cable for Android and CCK Lightning to USB cable for Apple. The 3.5mm coaxial/TOSLINK combo SPDIF input allows connection to older DAPs and CD players.
Battery life is up to 10 hours. Charging is via the separate USB charging cable included.

The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged or ‘bit-perfect’. This means you are listening to music as the artist intended in the format in which it was recorded.

At iFi we use Burr Brown extensively in our products having selected it for its natural-sounding ‘musicality’ and True Native architecture. Our experience with this IC means we know how to make the most of it.

Listen to Master Quality Authenticated audio straight out of the box. Connect to Tidal Masters and check the option to stream MQA.

MQA is an award-winning audio technology that enables music fans to stream the original master recording into their home, car or on their mobile. In the words of Gilbert O’Sullivan, iconic Irish-born singer-songwriter, “The great thing about MQA is that it delivers the finesse that was there in the desk sound. It’s tremendous, it sounds really good.”

iFi’s exclusive S-Balanced® circuit delivers maximum performance from single-ended and balanced headphones alike.
