I should have known better to stay away from Sound Blaster products. I've replaced Sound Blaster PC cards because of dissatisfaction and this foray into a portable amp was no better. I was very allured by the idea of simulated surround sound for watching streaming services on my iPad. I was using it with Sony MDR-Z1R because of the Sony's very good passive sound isolation - both outside in and inside out. Just plugging the Sony's directly into the iPad sounded so much better for both music and video streaming. How can that be? An external DAC/amp for a couple hundred bucks should sound better, but no. I tested with some other headphones and it was the same result. I don't use this product anymore and I think it's so bad that I don't even want to give it away. That wouldn't be kind. If you're an audiophile just steer clear of Sound Blaster.
Would not recommend to a friend.
