The latest version of Arcam MusicBoost (including support for iPhone 6) attaches like a battery sleeve and is fitted with an internal DAC that enhances sound quality from any source including streaming services like Spotify and Tidal. It combines a battery pack, DAC and headphone amplifier in a compact sleeve that fits snugly around your iPhone 6 for optimum portability.
The MusicBoost was created with the concept to transform the iPhone into an extraordinary music device fit for serious audiophiles. Despite adding a little extra to the slimline phone's dimensions, the sleeve eliminates the need for separate high-end music players or portable DACs and its robust exterior acts as extra protection for your phone too even leaving space for the camera lens.
In contrast to most portable DACs and portable headphone amplifiers that you need to carry alongside your phone, the fact that MusicBoost slides onto it makes it an incredibly convenient audiophile solution for music on the move.
Another great feature, is the ability to extend your phone's battery life over 120% more than the standard iPhone battery. The high precision DAC and headphone amp uses the integrated battery so it doesn't drain your phone and offers greater precision and a punchy aural experience from whatever source is already available on your phone. Audio can be upgraded from apps such as iTunes, Apple Music, YouTube, Spotify, Tidal, Qobuz, VOX or FLAC Player+.
MusicBoost doesn't draw sound from the iPhone’s headphone output, instead the digital audio data is driven directly from the Lightning connector through the Lightning Audio Module so it essentially bypasses the iPhone’s own audio hardware for the upgraded technology in the Arcam MusicBoost.
9 May 2016I cant really believe this didnt exist before. Rather than trying to find a similarly sized and compact enough headphone amp, this fits neatly around my iPhone 6 and isnt really any bigger than a 'plus size' phone would be. Sounds good and extra battery life is a bonus.
