I have owned my Dragonfly 1.2 for 2 months and think it is great value for money (bought from Amazon for £129). I am a hi-fi nut who has experience of listening to music on different quality systems. In my opinion the Dragonfly delivers exactly what the makers promise.
Driving headphones of reasonable quality, it is immediately apparent that this is an upgrade over the sound cards on the 2 laptops in my home - an 8 year old Dell with Windows XP and a 2 year old Sony Vaio with Windows 7. The sound is more natural with cleaner treble and mid range and deeper bass. Instrumental separation is also improved - much easier to listen to for long periods.
For those that want a bit more than just plug in and play their existing files, the Dragonfly is also good enough to differentiate the better quality of High Resolution 24 bit downloads over CD quality 16 bit and, then again, CD quality over MP3. It also highlights the superior playback quality of software like Foobar 2000 over iTunes, although I understand you can downloads plug-ins for iTunes that will bridge the quality gap.
The better the quality your headphones or playback system, the more differences are apparent. What the Dragonfly cannot do is produce quality in excess of good DACs costing 10 times the price as some have suggested and it is unreasonable to hope that it might. So provided that your expectations are reasonably realistic then you should be very happy with a Dragonfly 1.2 DAC.

I read a review of the new Dragonfly last month and decided I wanted to try it. At £129 from Amazon, and arriving next day, it was too tempting. Since mid January I have been using it to listen to Spotify (Premium) and my lossless files via Winamp on my laptop. I am pairing the Dragonfly with Klipsch X10 earphones. Prior to this I was boosting my sound experience with the chunky Arcam rPac (cost me about £150 last year).

My verdict? You have to seriously consider buying one of these if you are in the market for a portable DAC.

In all honesty the difference between the Arcam and the Audioquest is by no means night and day. In fact, the differences are quite subtle where sound quality is concerned. However, I believe that the Dragonfly has the edge: that touch more clarity and sense of space, more control of the bass notes making them that bit more taut and defined. There is the sense of a veil being lifted. It is hard to believe such good sound comes via a glorified memory stick! ;-)

Add to this the excellent price and the extremely convenient size and you have a winner. True, it cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but feed it with good quality music files and I doubt you will be disappointed.

Sorry Arcam, but I will be selling my rPac onward very soon.

EDIT: Listening again this evening, I decided to directly compare between plugging the Klipsh x10 earphones directly into the earphone socket of the laptop and using the Dragonfly. Firstly, I have to admit that the Acer output is not bad at all (things have improved in recent years). However, that said, having switched back to the Dragonfly, it's the latter I prefer.

This little device turned my Macbook into a musical monster.
It beats my Audiolab 8200 cd player hands down for sound quality.
The Audiolab is nearly £1000 new and highly rated by the Hifi press.
Also makes a great headphone amplifier.
sounds strong and very sweet.
A true bargain at the price jf you have the gear to hear the difference.

Opened the packed, plugged it into my Moto G 4G with a OTG cable and wow.

I downloaded usb audio player pro trial which only gave me 8 songs but that was enough to buy it.

The sound is so clear, precise and warm I cannot believe this is coming off my cheap phone from standard mp3 files.

Brilliant piece of kit...very warm, open yet detailed sound with excellent soundstage. Has made listening to music on my work PC a pleasure. Only downside is that it does not work with iOS devices without a powered hub (adding the hub into the path can degrade the sound quality).

AudioQuest, a part of the Quest Group, is an American manufacturer of high-end audio cables and accessories. In 2012, they released a small pen-drive sized USB DAC called DragonFly. Many reviewers and audiophiles called it a game changing USB DAC, back then, and it went on to become great commercial success in the world of computer audio. Since then, many have attempted to create similarly sized USB DACs and the market is currently flooded with many small USB DACs for use with computer audio and certain portable devices. This year, AudioQuest released an updated/tweaked version of the DragonFly and aptly named it as the DragonFly V1.2. AudioQuest has not only tweaked the original DragonFly USB DAC for better performance, they even reduced the price to USD 150 (equivalent of INR 9000) making it within the reach of a wider audience of computer audiophiles.

Features & Functionality

One of the key visible difference by which one can identify the DragonFly V1.2 from the original V1.0 is the 3.5mm headphone jack—it now sports a grey colour instead of the original black colour. The DAC is actually designed with only the most practically essential functions that includes:
• The 3.5mm jack that can power headphones directly or can be used to connect to a Pre-amp/Amp too.
• 64 position (computer controlled) analogue volume control. There are no channel imbalance issues here that some manual volume controls are by design plagued with.
• Asynchronous USB data transfer feeding a 24bit ESS Sabre DAC. So there is no need for an external Asynchronous USB to S/PDIF or TOSLINK converter that some Synchronous DACs require to sound good with computer audio.
• The LED indicator, in the shape of a dragonfly, changes colour depending on the resolution of the music being played.
