“The soundKey can turn your mobile listening into an authentically high-fidelity experience” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Improve the sound of your smartphone

The Cyrus soundKey uses a top quality DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) built into an ultra-low power circuit that lets you hugely improve the sound of your smartphone or tablet without rapidly draining the battery. Using a much better DAC than the one built into most smartphones and tablets means music sounds more dynamic, detailed and true-to-life.

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.

Ultra-low power consumption
A key advantage with this 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 phone's battery. What this means is a much longer phone battery life than when using other mini-DACs. The device itself is also battery-free.

Works with Windows 10, Android 5+ and iOS9+
Compatible with Windows, Android and Apple devices the soundKey is suitable for just about any smartphone. Simply make sure you have the correct USB OTG (On The Go) connection (Apple Camera Kit connection for Apple iOS devices) and you're good to go.

Compact, robust 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 music on the move.

Unlock the key to great sound from your smartphone, with the Cyrus soundKey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid performance Paired with my Sennheiser HD650s, this unit sounds very nice. A significant improvement in sonic space and detail from the inbuilt DAC in my Macbook Pro. I am used to using pro audio gear in recording studios and this compares favourably to units from Apogee etc Highly recommended for the money.
