Compared to previous models DragonFly Cobalt incorporates some important new features including a new more advanced ESS ES9038Q2M DAC chip with a minimum-phase slow roll-off filter for more natural sound; a more sophisticated Microchip PIC32MX274 microprocessor that reduces current draw and increases processing speed by 33% over DragonFlys Black and Red; and improved power-supply filtering specifically designed to reduce the WiFi and cellular noise that plague mobile devices. All of this is packed into a sleek attractive enclosure that measures just 2.26 x 0.73 x 0.47 (57.5mm x 18.6mm x 11.9mm) making the latest DragonFly 10% smaller and that much more portable than its predecessors.
