You choose wireless via Bluetooth® or wired via USB or SPDIF.
Apple or Android, DAP, games console or TV, just connect the xDSD and enjoy the ultimate audio experience.
The xDSD plays high-quality digital audio file formats up to DSD512. Listen to your favorite tracks as they were meant to be.
In love with Hi-Res streaming? Listen to Tidal HiFi and Spotify Premium with ease.
The xDSD is also MQA ready straight out of the box. Use with Tidal Masters on your computer or mobile.
The convenience of Bluetooth® means your headphones connect to the xDSD, leaving your phone or chosen device wire-free. Pop the xDSD in your pocket and it’s business as usual but with much better sound.
The xDSD boasts both aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth® for CD-like quality. With standard Bluetooth®, the sound quality drops by 30%, not so with the iFi Bluetooth® implementation. Just a little iFi magic for you!
With amazing amplification, driven by 500 mW of power, the xDSD handles almost any headphones and it easily partners up with active home speakers.
xBass+® cleans and restores the bass to give you a richer, deeper sound and 3D+® opens up your music to bring a live-concert atmosphere into your living room.
iFi’s exclusive S-Balanced technology means that you gain the advantages of a balanced connection even when using an unbalanced one.
On headphones, this means lower distortion, less interference, and reduce crosstalk.
The battery lasts up to 10 hours and ‘smart’ tech ensures you enjoy optimum listening time adjusted according to your usage. The xDSD has a separate USB charging socket.
And finally, with its metallic chrome finish and elegant, ergonomic design, based upon the Japanese Zen garden, it puts the ‘x’ back into sexy.
Connect your phone or device wirelessly via aptX™ and AAC™ Bluetooth®. Whatever your device, we’ve got it covered. Read more on iFi’s take on Bluetooth® here.
We use the USB Type-A connector as it provides a more stable audio connection for better playback and because of the OTG cable for Android and CCK Lightning to USB cable for Apple. The 3.5mm coaxial/TOSLINK combo SPDIF input allows connection to older DAPs and CD players.
Battery life is up to 10 hours. Charging is via the separate USB charging cable included.
The Burr-Brown True Native® chipset means file formats remain unchanged. Listen to music as the artist intended in the format in which it was recorded.
Listen to Master Quality Authenticated audio straight out of the box. Connect to Tidal Masters and check the option to stream MQA.iFi video tutorials on YouTube show you how.
Superb and versatile portable DAC and headphone amplifier
Using my iFi XDSD with Audeze planar magnetic headphones. Great sound, comparable with Chord (which remains the gold standard) but with more versatility, ease of use and input options including BlueTooth. Superb with Tidal on Mac, PC or iPhone as well as hi-res audio format files. Really impressed with the sound quality, ergonomics and portability
Incredible improvement in all my digital music.
Wow…wow…wow!! Would be a bargain for 2x the price
I absolutely love this device. I’m listening to Tidal Masters and DSD’s on my JH Lola IEM’s and the sound is unbelievable. I’m using a 2.5mm balanced male -> 3.5 balanced female adapter, which made a pretty dramatic difference versus an unbalanced.
I had hesitated a little because the thing looks much bigger in pictures. It’s actually quite tiny in my hand – the hand model must be a munchkin. Beautiful construction and intuitive controls. Love when the purple light tells me I’m listening to an MQA
Plenty of power on the IEM’s. Will test with my Audeze LCD-2’s as soon as my 4.4mm balanced female -> 3.5 balanced male adapter arrives
Haven’t tested the Bluetooth yet…
I really did not know what to expect out of this little POWERHOUSE.It really does the job for being a small amplifier. I’m using my Sennheiser HD 650’s . Crystal clear . Makes you feel like your floating on a cloud. The Bluetooth is a bonus. I take it every where.
I’ve always been into higher quality sound systems. This is one of my favorites because I’m able to take this quality amp with me anywhere. Make sure you do your homework and check things out for yourself as well.
HIFI for your pocket
The device is small and light, fits in every jacket pocket. The battery lasts for at least 6 hours. The sound is rather cool and analytical, very defined and genuine. The 3D + and Bass + functions change the sound only minimally, but are still useful.
The available input connections are diverse, so that you can actually interpose this DAC anywhere. The housing and the rotary wheel are very valuable, in contrast to the supplied fabric bag.
