it’s safe to say that AudioQuest with the Cobalt has another winner in their hands. One which audiophiles like us will enjoy for years.”

The AudioQuest DragonFly Cobalt is an impressive little device, and one that makes a case for the superiority of wired headphone sound in 2019. If you’ve already invested in decent wired headphones and don’t want to go wireless, the Cobalt is well worth considering!
Whenever there are three products in a line, there’s a temptation to class them, “good, better, best!” but in this case, it’s, “good, better, bloody hell!” Get one. Now!
I’m sold. In fact, I’m now considering replacing my current portable DAC/amp (I won’t name names) with this little blue wonder.
