Miniature Bluetooth DAC
It used to the case that, when it came to sound quality, Bluetooth meant second best. With the GO blu, this is now history. Featuring hi-res codec support, the GO blu connects to your Bluetooth source to deliver top quality, cable-free sound. Ideal for smartphones and tablets without headphone sockets or even Bluetooth equipped devices that do, but that of poor quality, the GO blu is a versatile device.
Use your choice of quality headphones
Once you’ve paired the GO blu with your music source, you’re able to plug in just about any pair of wired headphones. There’s a choice of single ended, 3.5mm output for most regular headphones and 4.4mm, balanced output for more specialised designs. Combined with a high 5.6V output, this means the GO blu is punchy enough for even the most current hungry headphones on the market.
Supports a wide range of Bluetooth audio systems
Powered by the advanced Qualcomm QC5100 chipset, the GO blu supports a wide range of hi-res Bluetooth formats. These include aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, aptX LL, LDAC, LHDC/HAW, AAC and SBC.
Dual-Mono circuit for superb staging
Featuring a dual-mono circuit design, the Go blu dedicates a separate channel to left and right signals. With each channel receiving a dedicated signal path, you get superior separation between the channels with reduced distortion and a more ‘holographic’ sound quality.
USB-C for charging and output
The handy USB-C port provides twin functions. Use it to recharge the built-in batteries once the 10-hour battery life has expired. It also outputs a digital signal at up to 24 bit/96kHz, making this ideal as a high quality Bluetooth DAC for connecting to your AV, hi-fi or speaker system (with compatible USB input).
XBass and XSpace sound programmes
XBass and XSpace settings tailor the sound to suit your taste and music. XBass gives an analogue bass boost, enhancing low frequencies without muddying the mid-range. XSpace analogue headphone spatialiser enhances the sound for a more spacious and enveloping sound.
Built-in mic for handsfree calls
A built-in microphone makes the GO blu highly convenient when connected to your smartphone. The mic means you can leave your phone in a bag or out of sight and simply use your headphones and the GO blu to take the call.
Get heavenly headphone sound, on the move, with the iFi GO blu.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonusbeat2020 from No more OTG. Purchased this as I continually have USB C connection issues with my packet DACs, Helm bolt and IFI hipdac, this little unit sounds just as good when out and about with my wired headphones

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocketron 02 from Ifi Go Blu I have used the IFI Go Blu for two weeks . I’m completely impressed with it. I did the software update and can now use it as a dongle dac from my phone and laptop. I great warm sounding tiny dac/amp that is powerful. I prefer this over the Luxury & Precision W2 and the Lotoo S2. I don’t think there’s a better Bluetooth, Usb dac/around at the moment. Good job IFI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carl J from Sweet and simple, great for going out with I have been using this for a couple weeks, it has really boosted the sound I can draw out of my IEMs. Bass really feels alive, especially when combined with the Xbass feature. The Bluetooth works better than expected. My only issue is that it lacks a clip which is a baffling decision from iFi. Portable devices need this.
