With greater demand for higher sound quality whilst on the move some manufacturers have come up with a novel way of getting you the quality you demand – earphones with integrated DACs.
The earphone manufacturer Zorloo has designed the ‘World’s First’ digital earphone, the bizarrely named Z:ero, which plugs directly into the Micro-USB port on your smartphone to provide you with digital audio output. With a Wolfson DAC and a headphone amplifier crammed into the in-line control, the Zorloo Z:ero is definitely more portable than carrying around a separate DAC and amp.
Previously audiophiles on the move would have to carry around amplifier/DAC combos such as the FiiO E18
But Zorloo aren’t the only people to offer headphones with built-in DACs. Sony has already released the MDR-1ADAC, a set of over-ear headphones with a built-in DAC, and Philips demoed their new NC1L noise cancelling headphones at CES 2015, which has an integrated 24-bit DAC designed to give Apple users superior audio via the Lightning port on their device.
Zorloo may not have gotten there first, but incorporating DACs into earphones and headphones may be the start of a new trend as manufacturers look to target the more discerning smartphone audio enthusiasts.

The iPod, iPad and iPhone house the majority of the market’s music which unfortunately means the majority of the market is not exercising the true potential of their music files. The issue with i-devices is that they do an excellent job of housing music files but not in converting them.
This is where the iDo comes in handy. After connecting and playing through the device the iDo bypasses the original DAC and uses its own. It extracts the original file that is stored in the Apple device and delivers bit-perfect, low jitter, audiophile quality music. An absolutely necessary accessory for any music player not using a high quality DAC – which means the majority of them!

The K2 is packed out with seriously high quality components to make the sound that superior Revo quality we’ve come to expect. With four Balanced Mode Radiator speaker drivers and dual Class-D amplifiers the K2 has enough sonic power to flood a room.
First and foremost the K2 is a radio and it receives DAB, DAB+, FM and internet radio formats and offers access to online music services such as Last.fm. It will wirelessly stream music from any PC or Mac and is capable of audio and video playback from specific Apple models.
The motorised dock is made for several generations of Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad. When in use, the otherwise hidden OLED brightly displays playing information on the graphical screen.
A very smooth piece of kit that will add a stylish edge to whatever room you put it in and mark its presence with an incredible sound. You even get a trial period for Last.fm free of charge.
Ever have a look around a shop and noticed how much preference there is for Apple products? Probably not if you’re using an Apple product already – which is true for most people out there. A serious problem lies ahead for those of us using any product but an Apple product when on the lookout for speakers. In every shop the majority of speakers will likely be fitted with a 30-pin dock suitable for Apple products only. Finally, a solution is available. Enter the dockBoss converter.
The dockBoss and dockBoss+ are innovative devices that instantly make an iPod dock compatible with a wide range of players. They ‘speak the language of all systems’ where one end of the dockBoss connects to the iPod dock and the other is a standard 3.5mm jack that fits a range of audio-output devices including laptops and portable radios. Hurrah! Finally a way to benefit from an Apple dominated market without an Apple product!
Even better, they love it at RegHardware too! It is RegHardware Recommended and was rated 80%!

About the iDo
The NuForce Icon iDo is here to solve all of your audiophile woes and breathes life into those digital files that aren’t living up to their full potential in your Apple device. Credit to Apple, their range of mp3 players are stunning works of design and function but this is no consolation to audiophiles who expect a higher standard of sound from such a high quality mp3 player. With Apple, ‘high quality’ doesn’t translate as ‘specialist’ which is why many people are left disappointed.
This is where the iDo comes in. Apple stores the original high quality digital file on its mp3 players easily but the problem is with their in-built digital to audio converter. Their converter is where the quality wanes and becomes that less than special sound. What the iDo does is goes into the device and bypasses this converter extracting the original high quality file giving back the studio quality sound it is capable of producing.
It might sound a little complicated but the solution is simple. The iDo gives you the quality of sound that belongs to your digital file without the need for a high-end, specialist mp3 player.
Save yourself 10% on an iDo by becoming an Amp3 Facebook fan. Check out the page here:
The Icon iDo if finally ready for pre order from Amp3. The digital audio converter and headphone amplifier has been made specifically for Apple products to convert digitally stored music files to their original audiophile quality.
The device might look a bit odd and might not seem so straightforward but the science behind it is really very simple.
Apple products like the iPod, can store a near original CD quality copy of a music file (Apple Lossless) but doe not reproduce that quality of sound when playing the file. Sound is only as good as the default digital to analogue converter.
When connected, the iDo bypasses the default converter and extracts the original high quality file without any loss of clarity. It produces audiophile grade sound from a digitally stored file. Simple!
The iPod which for years has been the world’s most popular MP3 player shows no sign of relinquishing any of its market dominance. The iDo brings to the world of Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad users a supremely high quality sound without having to purchase a high performing MP3 player.
“[His] brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.” Apple
On hearing of the passing of Steve Jobs at Advanced MP3 Players I would like, on behalf of all the staff, to state how sorry we are to hear of his death. Advanced MP3 Players operates in the very sector that Jobs helped to create and in which his legacy will continue to influence.
Steve Jobs, the visionary behind the Apple brand and information revolution changed the world of technology for the better. The impact of Apple Inc. touched and influenced the worlds of communication, design and high-end technology.
His passion and rigour as leader took Apple from mediocre Macintosh retailer to the technology giant that usurped Microsoft to become the world’s biggest technology company.
Jobs’ resolute belief and passion for tasteful design led the way to an untapped, unconventional culture of technology that fused creativity with the best of technology.
“Advanced MP3 Players owes a lot of its success to the work of Steve Jobs and his genius that brought MP3 players to the mainstream. The world of technology has suffered an incalcuable loss and this is truly a sad day at Amp3.” Andrew Gordon, Managing Director.
