Loud and Clear: iPad Pro 24-bit High Def Audio

Are you the late night coder who demands the highest fidelity in your headphones, especially when you need to rock out at ear-splitting decibels? Have you been looking for a 24-bit high def audio output solution for your iPad?

Audiophile Nirvana Is Here

Then, welcome to audiophile nirvana with an Audioengine D3 Portable DAC & Headphone Amp, only $99 bucks at Amazon.

You will need your own USB C to A adapter, but all you need to do is plug it in and you’ve got 24-bit audio high def audio for your high-end headphones. In my case, it’s the AudioTechnica ATH-M50x.

I’ve used the D3 on my Macbook Pro 15″ (2013) and an Intel NUC. The iPad seems to perform better than either of those in terms of maximum volume.
