    The Cobalt is not good from a measurements standpoint.

    Hi, I have a audioengine d3 right know and was considering switching to a smaller device, does any of these would compete?
    Also this e1da seems to be getting a 3,5 version too anyone have info about this?
  8. NotKunvinced
    That 3.5mm version seems to be in the prototype phase still.

    I totally overlooked this thread. Just purchased the smallish Apple adapter: hell of a bargain! Seriously, the quality that can be heard today for prices unheard of just 10 years ago... Time to resell my old bulky gear :L3000:

    I currently purchased an es100 as I plan on getting the note 10+. I have the campfire andromeda, would you say a usb-c dongle would offer better sound over the Bluetooth adapter?
  11. Devodonaldson
    Yes, if it's a high quality dongle. I even pick my Hidizs Sonata HD over the es100 via Bluetooth. Sonata HD upgraded to hi-res audio. I can hear little differences in Bluetooth vs wired. I also own an ifi xDSD and rarely use it Bluetooth for that reason. Bluetooth is convenient, but you do give up certain aspects of the music for that convenience

    What do you recommend in the $100 price range that can be purchased via Amazon?
  13. snip3r77
    You’re welcome .

    I went back to Apple dongle because of the slow UI of daps
  14. Devodonaldson
    If you have balanced headphones or iems, I believe the ibasso dc01 is the way to go, based on everything I've heard. Ak4493. The Hidizs Donato HD upgraded via computer is beyond decent. 2 of the go to Dongles in the under $100 category
