NuForce, a high end audio line, introduced a new sound headphone amp for your mobile devices. The NuForce Cube is a portable speaker and USB DAC (Digital to Analog Converter). You can connect up your smartphone, MP3 player or computer to improve your listening experience.
The NuForce Cube runs on a rechargeable lithium battery. Per each charge, you can get 8 hours of music, podcasts, listening to Youtube videos, or whatever you listen to. When you want to recharge, plug in the USB cable to the computer (USB plug accessory available).
“I’ve never been satisfied with the sound of other portable speakers on the market,” said Jason Lim, CEO of NuForce. “So we made it our mission to create one that not only sounded great, but looked great. Plus, we equipped it with an audiophile-grade DAC and headphone amp. After months of R&D and critical listening, we think Cube provides the clarity, power and detail in a portable speaker that our customers have been asking for.”
If you have a laptop with standard audio, the sound experience may not be that great. Smartphone or MP3 on-board audio can also be low quality or non-existant. By plugging in a USB device like the NuForce Cube, you can improve the quality. The NuForce cube also has a headphone bypass, so you can plug in those high-end headphones and get a good experience in sound.
The NuForce Cube is $119, with accessory options like iPod Nano connector and USB plug-in charger. The Cube comes with 3.5″ cable and carrying pouch to protect your device.
