Beyerdynamic introduces the smallest high-end music system in the world – the Beyerdynamic Impacto Essential USB Digital-Analog-Converter. The Impacto Essential mobile DAC is the perfect solution for smartphones and notebooks with lower playback quality. It can be easily inserted between the source and your headphones. The DAC is barely larger than an in-line control module and does have the functions of a typical in-line control. It has buttons to control volume, play and pause audio and skip tracks.

Small and Portable Audiophile-Quality System


The Beyerdynamic Impacto Essential USB DAC packs a Sabre32 Mobile Reference Digital-Analog-Converter which is an equally respectable technology that you could find exclusive to hi-fi systems. This small but mighty DAC chip decrypts high-resolution audio signals up to a resolution of 32 bits and 384 kz. This device class typically achieves maximum values of 24 bit/192 kHz. It also supports DSD signals of up to 5.6 megahertz, format usually available with bulky hi-fi devices and setups. Today you can enjoy the best audio from your high-end headphones with the small yet high-end music system offered by the Impacto Essential.

Perfect for Android, PC and Mac


The Beyerdynamic Impacto Essential supports any player that uses USB ports from computers to audio players. It comes with three cables of different USB types. There’s a Type-A USB cable for notebooks and PCs; USB Type-C for a wide variety of tablets and smartphones; and a micro-USB cable for most Android devices available today. As for iPhone and iPad users, Beyerdynamic is working along with Apple for a Lightning connector solution to be released soon.
