DragonFly Black
The model that started it all for Audioquest, the DragonFly Black offers an analogue volume control and a 1.2V headphone amplifier, making it the perfect, general purpose HeadFi listening device. Designed to seamlessly integrate into your day-to-day life at an affordable price-point, this is the perfect digital upgrade for any beginning audiophile.
DragonFly Red
This model is the refinement of the innovations found in Audioquests very first DragonFly lineup back in 2014. Featuring an upgraded ESS9016 DAC chip and a powerful 2.1V ESS Sabre headphone amp, the DragonFly Red isn’t just a stellar choice for headphone listening, it has the potential to be used as a true HiFi system component
DragonFly Cobalt
The flagship, the best DragonFly money can buy. With an overall size that’s 10% smaller than its DragonFly Black and Red brethren, the Cobalt features the same fantastic 2.1V output power and headphone amp found in the Red, and amps it up with an even higher end ESS ES9038Q2M DAC chip, which is tuned with a minimum-phase slow roll-off filter, all brought together for more natural sound output.
