Sharkoon Mobile DAC – The Jack Lover in Test

Meanwhile there are many devices without jack plug. Smartphones, tablets and laptops sometimes only have a USB type C connection. The analog 3.5 mm jack connector is slowly disappearing. However, with the Mobile DAC, Sharkoon would like to offer an inexpensive sound card which is connected to the USB Type C and also offers a jack connector as an interface. Thus existing headphones or microphones can be used on the new device without any problems. Our test report should clarify whether the sound card can actually convince.

Technical data

The Mobile DAC from Sharkoon is only offered in one color version: Black. With the integrated button, you can switch between different sound profiles. To the technical details:

Impedance
16 – 250 Ohm
Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)
100 dB
Weight 5 g
Sampling frequency 24 bit / 96 kHz
Connectivity USB-C, 3.5 mm line-in (TRRS)
Price € 14.99*

Scope of delivery

The sound card arrives at our premises in a packaging typical for the class. Except for some accompanying booklets there are no other accessories.

Design and workmanship

The sound card is almost completely in black. The cable is deliberately kept relatively short at 9 cm. This belongs rather to the somewhat thinner type, and is therefore flexible. However, the transitions to the connectors appear stable. The button on the USB type C port is easy to press.

Overall, the Mobile DAC from Sharkoon makes a good first impression.
