Fiio Q5s TC is a dac/amp with high res wired or wireless connection to a phone or computer, to provide better sound quality to your earphones or headphones. Q5s TC is ideal for iphone owners, since it includes a short lightning - usb-c cable. It also has a surprisingly clear and dynamic bluetooth input and if you have not tried using this dac via its bluetooth connection to a newer phone or computer, you may be shocked at how good it sounds, with no physical connection to your phone.
Q5s TC has a usb-c input / charging, uses the bluetooth 5 apt-x adaptive / LDAC, has a dual dac (2 ak4493 chips) and a THX amp with high power/ extremely low noise design. There are 3.5mm and balanced 4.4mm headphone outs, as well as optical and coax inputs, so you can connect easily in bluetooth or wired to nearly any source. There is a very complete control app, for future upgrades and a nice way to control the features and settings of the device.
Great for high end earphones, headphones and even many full size open back headphones, with power, clarity and the added freedom / ease of use to listen without being attached to your phone. A sub-bass focused bass boost is here as is gain function. There are tons of accessories, so you do not need to hunt for cables!
