Experience the extraordinary blend of size, performance, and convenience with the GO blu by iFi Audio. Elevate your mobile listening experience to new heights of audio fidelity.

Despite its compact size, the GO blu features a balanced design that sets it apart from other devices in its category. With symmetrical twin-mono signal paths and iFi's Direct Drive concept, the amp circuitry ensures a clean signal path without distortion-inducing output coupling capacitors. The inclusion of high-quality components, such as TDK C0G multilayer ceramic capacitors and inductors from Taiyo Yuden and Murata, delivers ultra-low distortion and a purer, clearer, and more naturally expressive sound. With an output of up to 5.6V, the GO blu provides ample power to handle even demanding headphone loads. The auto-gain feature adjusts the output to suit the connected headphones or earphones.

Enhance your listening experience with two user-selectable features unique to iFi's portable headphone amps. XBass provides a sophisticated bass boost that preserves the midrange clarity, perfect for earphones and open-back headphones. XSpace widens the headphone soundstage, compensating for the "in-head localisation" effect, and creating a more spacious and speaker-like experience. Both features operate in the analog domain, maintaining the integrity of the signal path.

The GO blu offers two headphone outputs. The 3.5mm socket supports headphones with a single-ended cable/connector, while the gold-plated 4.4mm Pentaconn output caters to headphones with balanced connectivity. Additionally, the 3.5mm output benefits from iFi's S-Balanced circuitry, reducing crosstalk and distortion when used with regular, single-ended headphone connections.

The GO blu redefines Bluetooth implementation with the utilization of Qualcomm's latest QCC5100 Bluetooth processing chip. It supports a wide range of high-definition Bluetooth audio formats, including aptX Adaptive, aptX HD, LDAC, and HWA/LHDC, ensuring the highest audio resolution according to your source device's Bluetooth specification. With Bluetooth v5.1 compliance, the GO blu offers exceptional range, stability, and performance. The Bluetooth engine is updatable over the air. The Bluetooth stage seamlessly integrates with a Cirrus Logic 32-bit DAC chip, featuring a customized digital filter to minimize pre-echoes and ringing artifacts. The precision clock system reduces jitter, resulting in reduced errors and distortion in the digital audio signal.
