”A handsome difference to your on-the-go sound.” – ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Improved sound, improved gaming

You’ve got a top processor, powerful GPU and massive RAM, but to be a top gamer you need to hear every detail. This is where the Cyrus Gaming soundKey comes in. When paired with 3D audio software and high quality, wired headphones, it unlocks a whole new level of sonic detail. Subtle sounds, such as footsteps, reloads and other details are clearly heard – keeping you one-step ahead of your competition.

Plug-and-play performance
Connecting the Gaming soundKey is easy. Essentially a USB connected external soundcard, the soundKey delivers plug-and-play performance with your PC. Also compatible with Mac or mobile device, the soundKey is a flexible upgrade.

Award-winning sound quality
Winner of What Hi-Fi’s prestigious ‘Best DAC under £150 2018’ award, plus many others, the soundKey is widely regarded as one of the best you can get at its price. Using a high quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and Cyrus’s renowned digital audio expertise, the soundKey delivers stunning results with music, too.

Compatible with Hi-Res music files
A further bonus with the soundKey is that it’s compatible with Hi-Res music files up to 24 bit/96kHz. This means that, as well as MP3 and AAC files, it will also replay your Hi-Res FLAC files. Hi-Res makes the music sound more natural, with subtle detail easier to detect and more life-like sounding.

Ultra-low power consumption
A key advantage with this portable DAC over others is the extremely low power consumption. With a battery drain of less than 50 milliamps – under half the maximum recommended by Apple for use with their iOS devices – the soundKey is kind to your device’s battery. What this means is a much longer device battery life than when using other mini-DACs. The device itself is also battery-free, so no charging required.

Strong, compact and light
Crafted using high quality brushed aluminium, the soundKey is both lightweight and strong. Its sleek design combined with its compact dimensions and mere 18g weight make it perfect for gaming and music on the move.

Take your gaming ability to the next level, with the Cyrus Gaming soundKey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than just a mobile DAC I bought this to connect my Samsung galaxy note 10 to my Cambridge audio amplifier for use with Spotify and YouTube Hi Res audio. It really brings streaming audio to life and id say it fits very well now with my other components, a Cambridge audio CXC and a Rega planner 1 Its a pleasure to listen to streaming audio now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's worth it Did the research, HiFi mags Which etc, still had my doubts but bought it. It's only £50 after all. Glad I did as it made a noticible difference on a high end HIFi using Samsung S8 and Spotify set to highest (quality) bit rate. So er thats it -go and buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I bought this as a last ditch effort to convince myself not to return the Philips Fideli X2HR I recently bought as despite the high praises from reviews, the sound is so weak even at 100% volume and the voice sounds like it's coming from backstage. The soundkey solved all that and a lot more! The voice is now more forward, and overall sound simply changed. I'd say it brought the Fidelio's full potential out! I was skeptical about the soundkey, something as small as a chunk of candy could make a difference. I was already thinking about sending it back before it even came. But man, this little thing took the sound quality to a whole new level and it works great via usb C of mobile phones too! For people like me with no knowledge about setting up dac/amps, or want something for their phones, the soundkey is perfect. Extremely happy with the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST VALUE PORTABLE DAC I ordered this item recently and it arrived very quickly- thank you Richer Sounds. The sound key allows you to listen to high sound quality music either via your mobile, or through a hifi system. Although this item is the gaming version- as opposed to the sound version- the only difference are the leads provided. I have not used it for gaming- as that is not my thing! The sound quality is incredible and gives my £5000.00 turntable a good run for its money. At £59 a total bargain......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enthralling sound! I Plugged it in and it worked immediately. On my now rather elderly Sennheiser Ovation headphones the sound was detailled and so good a sonic picture, that I listened for much longer than I'd intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought as my PC's headphone socket playing up, connected to USB port no hassles, big improvement, great sound, quality product, highly recommended!
