Is there much point in using a DAC/AMP on a Samsung tab S7 plus for music (and movies)

I hope i'm in the right place?

I have been eyeing the iBasso DC series or the E1DA series to use with my KZ ZS10 Pro in Ear Monitor Earbuds, I am confused in what one to get iBasso has DC01-05. i listen to a lot of heavy metal and rock.

E1DA has these:
  1. https://hifigo.com/products/e1da-su...-usb-dac-headphone-amp?variant=32362567008305
  2. https://hifigo.com/products/e1da-susumu-edition-9038sg3-usb-dac-headphone-amp?variant=32514565832753
  3. https://hifigo.com/products/e1da-90...plifier-amp-and-cables?variant=32004966842417
I don't know whats the difference between them, would it even make much of a difference?

Also If the device has a 3.5 jack can it still be connected to the c-port? some DAC's cant use the jacks.

I wouldn't recommend those.

The ones to get are the Audioquest Dragonfly's for mobile use, they're absolutely superb and around the same cost as those.

They go from entry level (Black) to mid range (red) to high end (cobalt blue). And they really do make a huge difference.


The black is absolutely superb for the price, you'll be hard pressed to find anything quite as good. It's £89 most places. You'd need a USB C to usb A adapter





USB A to C adapter is here:

Just furthermore, if you wanted something a little more static for home use, I would absolutely recommend Schitt, they're an American company but have a German distribution hub so you don't have to pay import fees. They make absolutely stellar performing kit at very reasonable prices, and the build quality is really high end.

Their entry level desktop DAC / Headphone Amp is the Asguard 3 which is just incredible.

I don't know where to ask this but, I am also looking a portable DAB player. I have been looking at the FiiO M11 Plus or the or just the normal one M11. Which would be the best player? could you recommend anything else, my budget is £600 and a good operating system and built in amp. I mostly listen to heavy metal and rock. I got the KZ ZS10 Pro is good or should I invest in a better IEM?

Fiio are excellent, always good quality stuff.

For the IEMs, I would put a bit more of your budget into them, they need to be able to output the kind of signals that the dacs and amps are going to be able to put out, try pushing the budget nearer £100ish if you can.

From ones I've experienced, the Shure SE215's are around £80 and really great IEMs for the price.

There are so many options for IEMs these days it's very hard to advise. I would say check out YouTube videos from Josh Valour, he's reviewed a lot of Amazon IEMs




Also check out Andertons, they're a professional Audio shop and have excellent stocks and support:
