iFi Audio has launched a new Bluetooth product that will allow you to convert your favorite pair of IEMs into wireless buds. Taking advantage of Bluetooth 5.2, the iFi Go pod could potentially bring out some of the best your IEMs can offer in wireless form without the need for messy cables. Allowing you to take them everywhere.
The Go pod is capable of up to 32-bit/96kHz audio and has support for all of the popular Bluetooth formats, such as LDAC (up to 990kbps bitrate), LHDC, 24-bit aptX HD, aptX, and more. It features two Cirrus Logic MasterHIFI 32-bit DACs on board to provide the digital to analog conversion and has plenty of power to feed any IEM model, automatically adjusting its mode depending on the impedance of the IEMs you have plugged in (16 ohms, 32 ohms, 64 ohms and 300 ohms).
The company made sure to cover all possible IEM designs, providing a detachable ear loops for MMCX, 2pin, Pentaconn, T2 and A2DC connectors. So you can adapt to any type of IEM without having to worry about buying into a whole new GO pod kit to do so.
At first, the company is pairing these with select IEM models to be sold as a bundle (ranging between $799.00 – $1,399.00). Carefully pairing them with models they find to make a great pair. After selling a certain amount of stock, the company will eventually release the iFi GO pod as a seperate product, allowing users to find their own preferred match.
