Whathifi.com: 5 STARS; backs up its cost with the clearest, tidiest and most dynamic presentation we’ve heard from a unit this small... does wonders in cleaning up our laptop’s performance, no matter what kind of file we feed it or whether it’s streaming from YouTube, Spotify, Tidal or playing from our own hi-res library....looking to make the next step up without compromising on size or form, the Cobalt represents something of a no-brainer.
Headfonia.com: Recommended List ... you notice is how clean and clear the new Cobalt is delivering the sound. And not only that, it does it without any effort making it sound wide, natural and musical. The sound stage is really good in both width and depth and the layering is really nice, especially in bass and mids. For the price tag, the sound simply is remarkable.
