For greater overall performance, the new DragonFly models also incorporate improved bit ESS Sabre DAC chips—the in Black and the higher-performance in Red—both of which employ minimum-phase filtering for naturally detailed, more authentic sound. Would you recommend this product to a friend?
The DFR has more clarity and It’s more balanced overall with a better soundstage. Compared to that the Dragonfly it isn’t really in the same league. Have to do some more quality testing though. The sound-signature is very natural and smooth with amazing soundstage depth and overall clarity and detail retrival. A little about my musical tastes: M50x sounded harsh, overly bright depending on the recording so instead getting rid of the M50x which is otherwise okay all audjoquest from games to music I thought that maybe getting rid of the E10k will solve the issue.
Rated 4 out of 5 by dan l. Check this info and compare between all models. Compared to other DACS: Guess you could say I’m in the Mid-Fi range. The results are stunning with easy and medium to drive headphone, and very good with hard to drive cans. I could best describe the experience as this is how music is meant to be delivered.
I listen to mostly alternative xudioquest and mostly hard guitar centric stuff but not metal, thinkSmiths or Less Than Jake.
I was wondering how loud you’ve had your master volume generally with the HD? You can look at this positively, probably it can drive most headphones. Music lovers have craved a more portable version—one that could be reliably used with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
RED is significantly better than the previous version, more drive, better resolution, better sound-staging, the difference in SQ between the old and new version is easily discernible. Yes, my password is: Most importantly, DragonFly is designed to honor the music you already own and love. I bought it for myself as a present for a professional milestone.

Plus, English is not my native language and to write this review my first one took time and patience. I dgagonfly skeptical about such a small device at such a low price point in the high end audio market but there were so many positive reviews for it I took a chance on it. Build Quality and Accessories: See all our Audioquest reviews. VargulfJul 28, Do you like to rock-out quickly? On the other side is our test subject today, the DragonFly Red.
Pros – – could be a solution to tame overly bright headphones – small, plugs directly to USB port so if you want to avoid cable mess then it’s a pro – good value.
All in all, nice pairing! But the Dragknfly is a far more sophisticated listen. With the Fiio Alpen the sound is a bit more bassier and veiled, the DFR is smooth but at the same time very clear.

The sound even on something as old as a tube amp. Here inhowever, the landscape is markedly different — and rising above the DACtastic tide is far harder. I like the small size and versatility of the RED and I like the price.
Pros – Sound Quality, Portability, Appearance. Convenience and performance are no longer mutually exclusive. Portability- Some could argue that a high quality PC sound card would have improved my PC sound cheaper.
