Moshi is announcing new accessories developed under Google’s Made for Google program.
The updated adapter has a PCB layout to reduce power consumption and new firmware for greater compatibility across devices. It features a built-in digital-to-analogue converter which outputs high-resolution audio at 24-bit/96 kHz.
A class G amplifier enhances the sound quality of older headphones to improve the listening experience.
“A lot of people look at a small adapter like this and think it’s pretty straightforward to make,” said Spencer Pangborn, Director of Product Marketing at Moshi.
“But unfortunately that’s not the case. In addition to compatibility across a wide range of USB-C devices, there are many different charging scenarios that must be considered. We worked closely with Google’s engineering team to ensure our adapter meets their compatibility requirements, and as far as i know we’re the first company to launch and certify this type of adapter.”
Made from anodised aluminium for added durability, the USB-C Digital Audio Adapter with Charging is available for $40.
