EISA MOBILE DAC 2023-2024 iFi Audio GO pod

Thanks to iFi Audio’s GO pod, devotees of high-end, cabled in-ears finally get an alternative to mainstream ‘true wireless stereo’ designs. This novel system features two smart, touch-controlled adapters that fit snugly behind the ear and wire directly to IEMs of your choice – industry-standard 2-pin and MMCX connectors are supplied, with others available as optional extras. A capable DAC/headphone amplifier is built into each ‘pod’ to drive even the most demanding of in-ears, while broad support for Bluetooth codecs (including aptX Adaptive and LDAC) ensures wireless fidelity. Even the GO pod case, which recharges the adapters’ seven-hour batteries, is smart – in all senses of the word!
