Listen to music using headphones plugged into your computer?

What you really need is a digital to analogue converter, preamplifier and headphone amplifier to make the most of the sound: in other words, the USB-stick-sized Audioquest Dragonfly V1.2, combining all these functions in a tiny package you can keep in your pocket or computer bag, and packed with the latest audio technology.

It can play music right up to beyond-CD quality, power your headphones or feed music to your hi-fi system, and doesn’t even need batteries – it’s powered from your computer.

Audioquest have improved the sound quality over the original Dragonfly so it now offers a more detailed yet richer and fuller performance.
