    I'd like to buy the iDSD Black Label so that I can use pair it up with Samsung Galaxy S5 to listen to my MrSpeakers Aeon Flow. Would I require a special adapter to fully take advantage of the Black Label's DAC or is the provided USB adapter to micro enough? I'm asking this because the S5 comes equipped with a USB 3.0 data port, and I just want to make sure that I won't miss out on anything the Black Label has to offer if I simply connected my S5 to the Black Label with the USB to micro cable adapter.

    iDSD BL doesn't come with an OTG adapter, you need one.

    The cheapest OTG for your S5 should be enough though, you don't need to do more to take full advantage of iDSD BL! I'm using something that you can find under 10$, it sounds great. the USB cable included with iDSD BL is great and works wonders as well. iFi included quite a few technological wonders with iDSD BL, so it is well shielded and such.

    The app used on your S6 and settings on it might be important though...

    Good to know! I haven't used any music app on the S5 yet as I've been using the DX90 for the past 3 years. Once I get the iDSD I'll give it to my dad as a gift. I have to decide whether I should get PowerAmp or the Neutron Music Player. Also, I'll need to get myself a fanny pack to lug around the S5 which has a Zerolemon battery inside along the iDSD. Decisions, decisions!

    I again repeat my question..
    1) Do people use it with Android phones? If in the affirmative what app do you use to play to the BL?
    2) Once plugged into the Android device, does the BL charge the android device or vice versa?
    3) I'm sure im forgetting something :)

    1: I do. With a crappy Blu Android phone. I use the Onkyo HF Player app.
    2. If you turn on the the BL and then plug the Android phone, it will not draw power from the phone but use the internal battery.

    Yes I use USB Audio Player Pro (UAPP). As long as you turn the BL on first before connecting it won't try charging from your phone.

    Has anyone tried the BL with either the Mr Speakers Aeon or the Beyerdynamic 1990Pro? I am looking into possibly getting one of those two headphones to pair with my BL.
  8. harpo1
    1990's are great paired with the BL.

    I suggest looking up the Aeon thread. Many people there have commented that the Aeon paired up with the iDSD Black Label is a fatanstic sounding combo, which is why I'm getting this DAC.

    Awesome. Thanks!
  11. cardeli22
    LOL thanks as well. Back to the eternal struggle of which one to buy. The Aeon or the 1990 pro.

    sorry, I haven't seen your question before.

    1. Yes, I am :darthsmile:, VLC, F2k and PowerAmp
    2. Depends heavily on the phone, some phones can actually charge it, some cannot. For BL to charge a phone, you must use the charging port on the side
    3. Please do ask if you have more questions!

    This one might place some stress on the device though.

    I'm using a sidebag and it works flawlessly, at least it has worked flawlessly so far.

    Those typical eastern european side bags i saw in Serbia and Czech Rep.
