Ever since the original Dragonfly has been launched; the demands for its utilization with smartphones are increasing. And finally, the engineers of AudioQuest presented the Dragonfly Red that is designed to break the precincts and boundaries, created by the former models.

Innovative Design

Showcasing great performance, the new Dragonfly Red integrates the improved 9016, 32-bit ESS Sabre DAC chip employing minimum-phase filtering to get naturally detailed, more genuine sound. It includes the modern ESS headphone amp and a quite perfect digital volume control that exist in the DAC chip itself. It is a refined implementation, promising dynamic contrast, maximum fidelity, and signal-to-noise ratio.


Comes with higher 2.1-volt output, this model is compatible with an even varied array of headphones, which includes power-hungry, low-efficiency models as well. For instance, DragonFly 1.0 and 1.2 included 1.8-volt output. Also, the DF Red model performs well and has much more grip, spin and muscle that any other DF model. Red simply sounds best. It produces a cleaner and clearer sound, enabling a greater soundstage with each and every instrument or voice more virtually in its own space.
