Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt

Coming off the back of the incredibly successful Dragonfly Red, the Dragonfly cobalt raises the standard again.

Plays all file formats/soundtracks: MP3, MQA, high-res, etc. 2.1-volt output easily drives most headphones.

  • Compatible with Mac and Window computers, Android and iOS devices
