    I have the 3.5 DC version and new s3 hidzs. Prefer the ibasso sound wise. More full sound, less veiled, more airness/open stage.

    What headphones do you use it with?

    Anyone using Ibasso DC01 with Snapdragon Note 10? I want to try it.

    I've been using it for a couple of weeks now with my 1more triple drivers. I've tested better dacs before, but considering the price, size and portability it is awesome. If you use it with your phone it drains your battery at a faster rate. I really recommend it.

    I'm not 100% sure on the technical details for as to why, but many reviewers seem to point out that dongles with "real" DAC chips sound better than the dongles with "Codecs". iBasso DC02 contains a "real" DAC chip along with some kind of dedicated Headphone amplifier, while the hidizs dongles (all three of them) seem to contain "codec" chips. what is the difference? I don't really know, I thought some kind of chip converting digital signal to analog would be just that. while DACs and codec both do just that, it seems straightforward DAC solutions are better at it. If anyone knows why, please enlighten me :D

    So until now I've always been using UAPP with my DC01. Does anyone know how I can make it work with other apps, like Google Podcasts app, Spotify, etc. ?
    I can get sound output with Chrome app for example but not with others. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Use ibasso uac app.
  9. Jemabaris
    hmmm for me that does not work. It will just output the sound through the integrated speakers of my phone. Maybe I am doing something wrong in the order of opening the apps? How would you exactly go about it?

    Will anyone with a late model iPad please tell me what adapter I need from Apple for bypass to xDSD DAC or any USB DAC? I think the camera connection kit usb3.0 is one way. It has an additional lightning connector output to add power to the iPad?
    This one: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...s-us-kwgo-pla-btb--slid-----product-MK0W2AM/A

    Or is it just a more simple Apple to USB adapter like this: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...s-us-kwgo-pla-btb--slid-----product-MD821AM/A

    Thank you to anyone, everyone for your guidance. :smile_phones:
    I need help! :warning:

    Thank you but there are 2. One with additional lightning input for power to the iPad and a more simple one without (looks just like an OTG cable for Apple).

    Thank you again as you have had personal experience with this?
  15. G_T_J
    Any input on this please?

    Also will the DC01/DC02 make a good sounding combo with the ER3XR?
