View Full Discussion It seems like more people are jumping on the XDuoo XD-05 DAC/Amp, however one thing really sticks out when you're comparing these 2 amps. The amount of time it takes to charge the battery. For the XDuoo XD-05 DAC/Amp Charge time: 5 hrs (quick charge with charger), 11 hrs (slow charge with computer). For the Fireye HDB Balanced Portable Amplifier Charging time: 2.5 hrs via external adaptor. That's a huge difference especially if you plan on using your amp a lot.

You're also saving real money here. This one is hard to find and the best price I could find is at least 150 dollars more than this. As for the XDuoo XD-05 DAC/Amp it is readily available at a price of about 20 to 25 dollars more so if you're making a last minute decision on these two keep this in mind.
