Before I start, I'd like to point out the obvious. The Poke II doesn't have the versatility of XD05-BAL. In terms of power too, it doesn't offer as much as the XD05-BAL. Therefore, if you're looking for a portable dacamp with BT capability that offers the flexibility of being used as an integrated dacamp, or just a DAC (BT in, USB in/ SPDIF in, Line out) or as a just as an Amp (Line in), and are ok with carrying a larger and bulkier unit, the XD05-BAL which is in the same price range, might be a better fit.

However if you're looking for something lightweight and easily pocketable, albeit with limited IO options (BT in, USB in, 3.5mm SE PO and 4.4mm BAL PO) the Poke II is a good contender. The major difference between other BT dacamps such as FiiO BTR3K, BTR5, BTR7 or Shanling UP4, UP5 is the massive battery (4000 mAH) and power output. The smaller bt dacamps are usually limited too 200mW or lesser, while the Poke II offers 700mW, which is more than what the FiiO M11Plus, M11S or iBasso DX160, DX170 offers.

IMO the Poke II is in a relatively strange space in terms of pricing and form factor. In theory, the Poke II could compete with hipdac or Q3, but it is definitely more expensive than those and far more powerful. I wouldn't place it in the same category as the XD05-BAL / Gryphon / Q5s either, because those dacamps offer a wide variety of IO options (Spdif, toslink, Line In, Line Out).

The Poke II definitely looks cool and stands out from the regular grey/ black / silver colored gear we usually get. Perhaps the Pokémon licensing is a factor that contributes to the relatively high price tag. I personally like the looks of this and this is perhaps the only piece of gear that I don't want to tuck inside a cover / pouch

Sound wise, this is quite different from the XD05+ (AKM) and XD05-BAL (ESS). The Poke II features Dual CS43198 dac chips. I've recently fallen in love with Cirius Logic DACs cuz they seem to have a good balance of musicality and technicality that IMO places them in between the typical AKM velvet sound and the ESS sound.

The Poke II includes EQ, gain and filter options. There are 2 filter options, 1 is a tad bit lean, with refined treble, while the other is a little warm with more weight in the mids and better bass presence. EQ options are mostly pre-configured, although one can personalize the bass and treble response in the "Tone" EQ mode. I use the Poke II as a bt dacamp for my phone, since it includes a mic, making it convenient to answer calls without having to remove my IEMs. It also doubles up as my dacamp for gaming (PS4 BTA30 Pro Poke II), thanks to the enhanced dynamics in the Game and Movie EQ modes.

The mic seems to pick up my voice fairly well when the unit is placed in my shirt pocket. It also has an option to double up as a power bank (thanks to the 4000 mah battery).

All in all, I'm quite happy with my purchase of the Poke II and would like to thank the team at TheAudioStore for the super quick delivery.
