CREATING A BETTER HEADPHONE JACK IN THEIR ABSENCE

With most phones now foregoing a headphone jack, we felt compelled to create a headphone jack to truly bring back great sound.

TREMENDOUS PERFORMANCE IN A SLIM PACKAGE

Within the KA3's petite frame lies exceptional hardware.

OPTIMIZED AND ENHANCED HIFI AUDIO ARCHITECTURE

Experience uncompromised audio quality with a carefully engineered multi-chip audio circuit.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE FLAGSHIP DAC

Potently robust Dual headphone outputs

Comes equipped with 2 headphone outputs, both powerful to easily drive a variety of headphones.

32BIT/768KHZ | DSD512

LOW NOISE FLOOR CLEAN SOUND FOR A GREAT SOUND

Featuring abundant power with high signal-to-noise ratio, low distortion, and almost 0 noise - this is true high-fidelity sound.

>122DB SNR
<0.0008% THD+N
<1.7UV Noise

HAVE IT ALL DUAL SE AND BALANCED OUTPUTS

Satisfy multiple use cases with both a 3.5mm single-ended and a 4.4mm balanced output.

WONDERFULLY VERSATILE ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

Compatible with various OSes like Android/iOS/Windows/Mac

Compatible with many devices like phones/tablets/computers/ audio players

Use in various scenarios like listening when commuting, in the home or office, or even gaming

*Due to the large output power of the KA3 and limited external power supply of iPhones, stutter and muteness may happen to the maximum volume.

* For Windows systems, please install the driver first.

STUNNINGLY SUAVE ALL-METAL CONSTRUCTION

The all-metal body sports a handsomely rugged design with distinct edges and a luxurious gold and black finish.

PRACTICAL AND BEAUTIFUL RGB TOUCH

Besides exuding elegance, the RGB light indicator usefully indicates the current sampling rate.

blue - 48kHz and below sampling rate
yellow - 48kHz and above sampling rate
green - DSD

EVEN MORE WAYS TO INTERACT
