The new Questyle M12 is an ultra high performance mobile headphone amp/DAC. It delivers an unmatched level of technical sophistication and sonic performance to ensure you get the best sound quality possible when listening to music and videos from any connected device.

The M12 features Questyle’s proprietary super-low-distortion Current Mode Amplification. The patented SiP amplifier module provides high current output, vanishingly low distortion of 0.0003% THD and astonishing noise levels of -130 dB. The extended frequency response and wide dynamic range will bring out the best from any headphone.

The M12’s smart detection system measures your headphone’s impedance and automatically sets the gain level to match your headphones, ensuring stunning sound quality from any headphone or in-ear monitor.

Questyle collaborated with ESS for two years to maximize performance of the ESS ES9281AC DAC chip. As a result the M12 can process PCM up to 32-bit/384 kHz, DSD 256, and decode MQA. So no matter what your source the M12 plays your music with dazzling sonic clarity.

The M12’s USB-C interface works perfectly with all major operating systems: iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac OS, providing ideal audio and video performance with zero latency. Supports MQA. works with 8-600ohm headphone. Uses Current Mode Amplification.

5 of 5 Great Product, Great Service December 9, 2021
Reviewer: Christiaan T Noe from NC United States  
The headphone Amp is perfect. I am currently on a TDY for the government for 6 months out of state.  I miss my HIFI system at home, so I ordered this Amp and paired it with a pair of  Grado RS1X headphones and a subscription to Tidal. The match is PERFECT and very portable.  The service was top notch. I spoke directly with Todd and it was after hours. He was very helpful, curious,  and professional.  Shipping was fast to the hotel I'm staying at.  I would definitely recommend this Amp and this company.  Thank you  Todd  for your help and thank your staff for me.
