View Full Discussion Can anyone answer if this works with Android phones? (does the Android OS recognize this device when connected via the USB port - NOT THE AUDIO OUT JACK)
If not this is pretty worthless - there's better solutions out there for less (https://www.amazon.com/Kunlun-E18-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00GCDJBMM for one)
The bluetooth is intriguing - but since it's pretty much crap for audio I don't see how a bluetooth DAC even makes sense.....
Yes this should run on Android as it has an OTG cable included. I currently have the e18 and for $93 it has features I such as the play/skip/prev buttons on the dac itself.
I skimmed over the HF review: http://www.head-fi.org/products/shanling-h3-portable-amp-dac-with-apt-x-bluetooth/reviews/13617
Some take-aways: Bluetooth is limited to 16/44, No Bass Boost (maybe it doesn't need it but I prefer having one), no play/skip/prev buttons, and that weird positioning of the micro USB port.
For something that is almost $300 you would also expect a case which it doesn't come with one.
The bluetooth is 4.0 with aptx, so the bluetooth is capable of CD quality. I have 2 dacs with the ES9018K2M chip, one is very expensive, and the M9XX blows them both away. Not sure if it is the chip itself, since it has gotten good reviews, but the M9XX with a different chip is at least 5 times better than those dacs I have.... just my 2 cents.
