The new iFi Audio Ear Buddy® gets rid of hiss and buzz and improves audio quality. Ear Buddy® fits between your Smartphone/Digital Audio Player and your headphones. Just plug in and play. Retails for $28.
In an everyday context…
If you are streaming music via Tidal or Spotify, you pay for and expect to be listening to music at 16Bits – CD like quality.
What actually happens, because you aren’t listening at optimum volume, is that you lose 2Bits of resolution, so you are only listening to 14Bits – less than CD quality.
Now, add in the EarBuddy and crank up the volume.
The EarBuddy ‘moderates’ the digital volume with an adjustment of -15dB. And at same time gets rid of annoying hisses or buzzes.
Effectively, you are allow your device to run at a higher volume without going deaf! You immediately get the 2Bits back and benefit from better resolution and an increased dynamic range, vocals may seem clearer and background hiss has disappeared.
It’s a bit of iFi magic. Give the EarBuddy a try and get your Bits back.
