Now, movies and games have never sounded better. The Xduoo XD-05 Basic takes audio to the next level for a realistic and exciting experience. It is packed with features that'll keep you up to watch just 'one more' episode or play 'just another' level.
Bring Home the Cinematic Experience
Turn your room into a cinema hall or professional gaming set-up with the Xduoo XD-05 Basic. This DAC/Amp plays high-quality video and game audio to take your experience to the next level. The professional digital and analogue circuits give you a surround sound effect on speakers as well as headphones. It is compatible with desktops, PS4, Xbox, tablets and other smart devices and gaming platforms.
Play High-Quality Audio Always
The Xduoo XD-05 Basic uses an ESS9018K2M DAC that supports a sample rate of up to PCM 32-bit/384kHz and up to DSD256 playback. The best part? This DAC/Amp can extensively optimise low bit-rate files to upgrade them to 48KHz/96KHz/192KHz with its SRC function.
Works with All Kinds of Headphones
Drive power-hungry headphones as well as sensitive IEMs with the OP+ClassA amplifier circuit. With its ability to drive headphones between 16Ω-600Ω, it's highly popular among audiophiles. To further optimise the audio playback, the output uses an on-demand system that reduces distortion and background noise even at high volumes. You can even replace the operational amplifier to tweak the sound quality.
Take Your Entertainment to the Next Level
The Xduoo XD-05 Basic offers 4 PCM digital recorders and 3 DSD digital filters to play different sound effects, including warmth, transparency and detail. The hardware-accelerated bass switch adds that necessary low-end delight that makes video games and movies sound all the more power-packed.
Designed for Binge-Watchers
While the Xduoo XD-05 Basic can be easily plugged into an external power supply like a USB charger or power bank, the built-in 3.7V/4000mAh battery runs for up to 9 hours on a single charge. The volume knob comes with a backlight that shows the battery status, even in dim light. The 0.91-inch OLED display shows other details, including the sampling rate, power, DAC filter status and input interface clearly.
I am using this as my desk dac\amp and I think it is one of the best under this price range. The design, buttons, display and overall look really nice. And the sound output which is really flat means no custom tuning of a particular frequency is good, overall I can say I really love this one and not changing this any time soon.
Thank you for your review! We're glad to see that you're enjoying your xDuoo XD-05 Basic Portable Headphone Amplifier/DAC.
I was looking for a nice DAC/AMP that I could use with both my PC and my phone. I discovered the Xduoo XD-05, did some research, and bought it. It has a wonderful build quality and the casing is fully made of metal and is such a good looking device. It is portable since it has an internal battery and does not draw power from the power source (when connected to a phone). It also offers several nice features, and I like the fact that the 3.5mm port can be used both as line-in and line-out. Thanks to Audio Store for the lightning-fast shipment and overall excellent service.
Thank you for your kind words! We're glad to hear that you're happy with the Xduoo XD-05 and appreciate your feedback.
xDuoo devices have always been different from the herd and the XD-05 is no different. I simply love the fact that you can roll op-amps with this one! Aand it's real easy (multiple videos of YouTube). Right out of the box - switched the op-amp that comes with the device for a Burson v5i. And boy oh boy - this punches waaay above its price now. Both with headphones and with speaker amps. Also love the fact that the 3.5mm port can be used both as Line-In and Line-Out. Can't remember another device that can do this. And to have COAX and Optical support in such a form factor - wow! Overall - I don't think there is any other device that delivers so much performance and so many features at this price. Truly - a hidden gem.
I'm in no way an expert audiophile component reviewer, but the XD05 is definitely one of the best amp/dacs I've used to date. I have a TempoTec Sonata HD but I feel that is an unfair comparison. This thing is miles ahead but yes, costs more than twice the cash too. I currently use this on my computer with my Tin Audio T2 Plus and my Sennheiser 599 SE. It sounds so deep and roomy it feels like I'm listening to them for the first time again! The only con I had with this is that there is no setting to switch power/usb connection to one port like a few other portable amp/dacs. Apart from that, stellar in every sense of the word.
I'd definitely urge anyone reading this who is also starting out on their journey to better audio like me to give this a look.
Finally, props to The Audio Store team - I was skeptical of the next-day delivery. But I did get it! Much quicker than their rivals in this space.
Pros: A economical Amplifier +DAC with volume control
Cons: Bulky and get heated up

The greatest entry-level DAC for anyone looking to start their audio journey. The addition of a DAC to the earphones improves the sound quality.
Superb for music
This small device seriously improves the audio quality of your IEM. It gives boost to your IEM to run with its full potential..
I have paired this with my KZ ZSN Pro X nd Salnotes Zero nd there was a lot more improvement in the audio quality. The bass became tight, quality was improved everything sounded well. Before pairing they sounded different nd felt not upto the mark.
If you're on tight budget nd want to experience the audiophile journey then this is the best portable DAC you can start with. It costs less than 1.5K nd it performs way more than the price.
You won't be disappointed at all.
Extremely well made cable. Feels premium. Sound of the iem definitely got a boost
This is my first IEM, choosing BLON was not easy because there are so many options in that price sector. I was using SkullCandy Dime for music before this and HP gaming Earphone for my competitive gaming sessions. I wanted something that can fulfill my both needs so did some research and choose BLON. It's sound balanced, it's really good. I mostly listen to Jazz, Blues and Progressive Rocks in this days rarely some Pop and EDM's. Bass is there but not Heavy like BOAT's and not too low like Skull Candy. So in sound sector am happy.
Music is very clear. Great pair of drivers worth the price. First time iem buyers can surely go for it
I found this the be best entry level DAC.
Recommended for the beginner users.
The output is great and i have used with my IEMs. Sound output is nice ofcourse not as close to my LG v30 plus mobile.
If you have black/stealth styled IEMs like I do with the Truthear Hexas, and are seeking to use a balanced amplifier for them (I'm eq'ing them through the Qudelix 5K), the Tripowin Amber seem have the most congruent look for that setup. Matte black + copper looks quite suave in almost all settings.
Soundwise these cables do not diminish the original sound quality – they seem acoustically transparent. Could clearly hear the difference between my OG BTR5 balanced output and the Qudelix 5K's through this.
I prefer using my Sennheiser HD599 for long calls as they have a lighter clamp compared with my other headphones, but they do not come with a mic. This converter allowed me to get a Vmoda Boom Pro style cable and attach it to the HD599 for ultimate conference call bliss.
P.S. Works with my ATH M40x (and therefore the M50x too) as well! Might be an option for Sennheiser HD560S / HD400 Pro users as well since they use the same connector as the HD599
Delivers high quality music. Very convenient to use and carry
cables are good and working fine
Product is good but please check compatible devices with this .
Ow good product
I got these after listening to several reviews on YouTube. They are precisely what these reviews said they would be.
