Cyrus Audio is launching its first Kickstarter campaign on 1st July, with the aim of raising £50,000 to develop the SoundKey, a micro-sized DAC designed to get the best musical performance out of mobile phones.DAC  headphones 3

Aimed firmly at music lovers who use their mobile phones as the primary source, the SoundKey bypasses the low quality internal circuits of the phone and takes the digital music signal directly to its own DACs and amps. With just 50mA current draw from the phone it won’t run the batteries down too quickly.

Simon Freethy, managing director of Cyrus, says, “There’s a whole new generation of music lovers who just don’t know how good the music on their phones can sound, as it’s let down by the low quality DACs and amplifiers employed in the phone. The Cyrus engineers, using their 30 years experience building products that provide a better music experience, have come up with a world-beating solution in the diminutive SoundKey.” He continues, “It will significantly enhance the enjoyment of content from phones and we are so excited by it that we want to invite consumers to be part of this revolution. Join us at our dedicated SoundKey microsite and register your interest to be one of the first backers and among the first to own one of these really cool products.”

Kickstarter pledge levels will be announced shortly and Early Bird and VIP packages will be available that reward the first people who get behind the product.
