Just bought one of these for use with my mobile devices (phone, Surface Pro 4). First impressions are pretty damn good. Using it to drive a pair of original Astro A40, which have an impedance of 48Ω. Can immediately tell that the Zx I have in my PC wasn't up to the task despite having a built-in headphone amplifier. Everything sounds amazing; can really pick out the highs and lows and subtle background melody and effects. I also didn't know they could get so loud!

Anyone else have or used one of these? What are your thoughts? This is my first experience using a USB DAC, so I can't compare it to anything. I only spent $90 on it.
