Boost the sound and battery life from your Apple iPhone 6, with the ingenious Arcam MusicBOOST.

Music to your ears

Although the combination of iPhone and iTunes gives one of the most popular and user-friendly music experiences, the sound quality can easily be improved and, with the MusicBOOST, that is exactly what Arcam have done.

Lightning connection
As you slide your iPhone 6 into the MusicBOOST, it connects neatly to the Lightning socket. This takes a digital signal straight from your iPhone to the Arcam's top quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). Bypassing the iPhone's DAC and analogue headphone output gives a whole heap of technical advantages, all of which dramatically improve the sound quality.

The highest quality sound
By using the dedicated Arcam DAC and headphone output your music takes on a whole new live. A wider dynamic range gives deeper bass and more convincing treble detail. The mid-range is also far more true-to-life, with vocals having a tangible 'body'. Whether you listen to Classical, rock, pop or dance, the differences are clear to hear.

And it boosts your battery!
If the improvement in sound quality weren't enough, the MusicBOOST also extends your phone's battery life. Used as a battery supply alone, the Music Boost more than doubles your iPhone's battery life. Use the DAC and headphone output and you should still see an increase in battery life, as you're no longer using the phone's built-in DAC and power-sapping headphone amp.

Release the music from your iPhone 6 in the quality it deserves - with the Arcam MusicBOOST.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, poorly executed Firstly, I love Arcam! My whole system is from Arcam and I've always rated them very highly. So, imagine my disappointment when I bought this product. I don't know if mine was faulty but, I couldn't discern any difference in the quality of music through my Bose headphone. It was a great boost to the battery extending the life by 100% but that even stopped working a few days later. The volume control on my headphone also stopped working, I couldn't pick up calls and I couldn't hear what anyone was saying. Such a shame as I really liked the concept of this device. Arcam, if you sort this out, I'll buy another but only if it works!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great Sound and build quality seemed fine. It makes the iPhone really bulky and only protects half of the phone so if you were to drop it I fear it would cause extensive damage to the phone and/or your toe if you were really unlucky due to the added weight. However I had a less than stellar experience with this product. The first one stopped charging properly after a day which the store swapped over with no questions asked. Didn't have much luck with the replacement either as it kept cutting off at the slightest move so not ideal as a mobile solution. It would get the phone extremely hot during use which can't be great for the electronics inside. Maybe I was just really unlucky. So had to take that one back too and went for the Chord Mojo which even though over 3 times the price, is a far superior DAC and worth every penny.
