Aqua: The World’s Lightest Headphone Amplifier

Aug 11, 2015

Category: Tech

Any audiophile will snub the idea of using the standard earbuds that come with most smartphones nowadays. Simply put, those headphones just don’t sound up to par. But what if they’re first sent through a small amplifier before the sound gets to your ears? That’s the idea behind Aqua, the world’s lightest headphone amplifier.

This amplifier claims to bring a high-end headphone level of sound quality to your basic earbuds, giving your listening experience a significant quality boost. The device simply plugs into your Android’s MicroUSB port (or your iOS’s Lightning port), and then your headphones plug into the device. The device is incredibly light, too. It’s built out of aluminum, and not cheap plastic. Luckily, it looks as good as it sounds.The amplifier is currently being funded on Kickstarter, and you can pick one up for $59. [Purchase]
