Most of us enjoy our audio, albeit from iTunes or Spotify or the like, on an iPhone when we are on the go. The reality is that while iPhones are a decent source for audio, the internal make-up isn’t as strong as it could be when it comes to enjoying your favorite tunes.

This is where a digital-to-analog-converter can really come in handy, taking the stress off your device and letting the DAC do all the work. Audio accessory maker Onkyo has a new solution that utilizes the Lightning port instead of the typical 3.5mm jack to provide higher-fidelity audio. expand full story

amp-iphone-speaker-case As Apple continues to whittle iPhone’s profile down to mere millimeters, it’s crazy to expect its built-in speaker to produce high quality sound at loud volumes.

Blue Microphones Mo-Fi Powered High-Fidelity Headphones with Integrated Audiophile AmplifierBlue, the makers of the Yeti USB Microphone, have just introduced Mo-Fi: the first headphone that delivers real audiophile performance and sound quality from a variety of devices.

Mo-Fi is no ordinary headphone. From the multi-jointed design to earcups shaped—gasp—like ears, we completely reimagined the form and functionality, without any preconceived notions about what headphones are “supposed” to look like. The result feels less like a headphone, and more like a high-quality instrument you can wear. Some call it radical. We just call it Mo-Fi.

The Mo-Fi has an integrated audiophile amp and custom-matched drivers that deliver unrivaled sound. They might look different, but they feature a revolutionary personalized fit for superior comfort and performance. These are powered headphones, meaning they feature a built-in amp that allows for a much stronger and louder signal no matter what the audio source. They also come with a 1 meter cable with an attached MFi mic, a 3 meter cable and a 6.5mm to 3.5mm adapter.

I’m big on aesthetics, design, style, quality, and substance, and you immediately have the sense that a lot of attention was paid to these headphones. They are awesome.”

You can find the Mo-Fi on Amazon for $350. Here is a full list of features:
