Moshi has released its second-generation USB-C digital audio adapter with charging, which is Made for Google (MfG) certified, having been tested and certified by Google to ensure seamless compatibility and performance.
"A lot of people look at a small adapter like this and think it's pretty straightforward to make," says 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."
The updated adapter has a new PCB layout to reduce power consumption and new firmware for greater compatibility across devices. It features a built-in digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that 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.
Made from anodized aluminum for added durability, the USB-C Digital Audio Adapter with Charging retails for US$40.
