High-end portable DAC / headphone amplifier

Transforming the digital sound data to a connected player often leads to a loss of music quality. Many top headphones such as the beyerdynamic T 51 p cannot be used to their full potential with mobile devices. The A 200 p from beyerdynamic is a solution to this problem. It meets demanding audio requirements and provides you with significantly improved sound on-the-go.

Hi-fi Experience instead of standard sound

The A 200 p circumvents the internal signal processing of the connected player and receives the pure digital music data first. After converting the digital data to analogue music signals, a high-quality amplifier controls the output to the connected headphones. All of this results in a level of audio quality that was previously not possible for travelling audiophiles. Previously unheard details, better contoured and deeper bass, as well as natural instrument and vocal reproduction transform standard portable sound into a true hi-fi experience.

Lightweight and compact in a pocket-format

With dimensions of 55 x 55 x 13 mm, the A 200 p is extremely compact and lightweight. It fits easily in your pocket and can be stored together in your headphones carrying case. The integrated battery provides you with up to 11 hours of uninterrupted listening pleasure; enough even for long-haul flights. In addition, the A 200 p also makes it easier for you to control playback using its buttons for play/pause, as well as for skipping between tracks. You can easily adjust the volume using the large aluminium volume knob with locking function. Furthermore, the A 200 p comes with a leather case that you can use to attach the amplifier to your belt or directly to your smartphone.

Compatible with Apple and Android

The A 200 p works with a number of mobile playback devices such as the iPhone, iPod, iPad via Lightning connector, Android smartphones or tablets provided with digital USB audio output with Android 4.1 or higher via Micro-USB, as well as Mac and Windows computer via USB (please refer to the compatibility list below or under "downloads"). The A 200 p is currently the smallest mobile DAC and amplifier that can work with all of these devices on the digital level.

The difference in quality when listening to music via iPhone with or without the A200p can be clearly heard even with MP3 files. It sounds as if you open a curtain to a concert hall, which reveals all details in each pitch. Bass, mids and highs appear more present and differentiated. At least this is the impression you get when using the DX 160 iE in-ear headphones from beyerdynamic.

[...]

In combination with a high-quality headphone, the A 200 p converts the iPhone into a high-end audio player, which satisfies music enthusiasts on the go. However, there should be music files of a high-quality format available.

When using the Custom One Pro from beyerdynamic the difference in sound is striking compared to the direct sound from the headphone socket of a HTC One (M8). It sounds as if a thick velvet curtain has been removed from the front of the loudspeakers: The sound becomes more open and clearer. Especially the bass sounds are considerably clearer, but the mids and highs do sound clearer as well. You can hear details which you would miss without the A 200 p. This becomes very clear with the bass sounds in “Follow Me” from Muse.

But also anyone who has bought a good headphone for 100 Euro and wishes it should sound like more, should try this small amplifier.

Whatever the A200p can perform, I would like to tell it with my beloved vocabulary used for hi-fi reports: a stronger bass, more contours in the instruments, a better differentiation, a superior resolution, and a clear and spatial bass.

All in all I can say: Whoever wants to enjoy quality on the go like a declared hi-fi freak, will be happy. I am a hi-fi freak on detox and strongly at risk. "

One should really warn against this device: because if you ever connect the beyerdynamic A 200 p mobile amplifier between a smartphone and a (good) headphone or in-ear headphone, you won’t want to listen to the sound the same device supplies when connecting the headphone directly to the smartphone.

(...) It works perfectly with Apple devices and with iTunes on a PC. In the acoustics test the amplifier earns respect with impressive levels. When compared directly between the headphone output on an iPhone and the output of the small converter component, there are clearly audible differences with good headphones. This implies it’s worth buying. (...)

The DAC A 200 p meets the highest demands in sound with a minimum of dimensions.  With a size of only 55 x 55 x 13 mm it is quite discreet and can adapt optimally. This small “box” includes a lot of features for real hi-fi fans.

Digital music files are played natural, pure, clear and rich – whether using a simple smartphone or iPhone5s.

The result is not only amazing, but most impressive. Music that used to be reproduced rather lax, is re-created with the DAC in an almost miraculous way.

The integrated D/A converter with 24 bit/96 kHz and its analogue output stage are more elaborate than the components installed in iPhones and other smartphones. They provide a considerable sound boost, which is noticed especially when using high-quality headphones that can reproduce fine details and differences in the dynamic range such as the beyerdynamic T 51 p.

Music lovers who want to try out the full potential of their expensive headphones with a mobile device, will find a nice new option with it which did not exist up to now in such a small form as far as I know. I can definitely recommend it!
