    Thinking of getting the fiio k1 since my new pixel xl 2 doesn't have a headphone jack, and people say there not bad for the price.

    Thoughts? I did hear others say it's fairly noisy and doesn't produce much besides a louder volume?

    Its a pretty great little DAC IMHO.
    It was my first DAC/Amp and I still use it today when I travel.
    I just took it out today to test its quality with my mrspeakers Aeon and honestly its resolving capability is pretty damn good and I have a Topping DX7 (dual mono balanced DAC/Amp) and the detail is pretty on par in many songs.
    In some songs the DX7 flexes its additional prowess but for $40 it really kills the market for a simple solution. The only downside is that because it is bus powered it will burn your battery faster than normal.
