      Hi-Res Audio
      Take full advantage of the modern High-Resolution music files with Q1. Supporting a wide range of formats and resolutions, all the way up to 32Bit/384kHz PCM and DSD 128. Any music collection can be simply played on Q1, without any need for downsampling, converting or complicated transfer software.

      Hi-Fi Sound
      Developed to provide premium sound quality and full support of high-resolution audio, Q1 was built with special ESS Sabre ES9218P Hi-Fi DAC/Amp. Offering significantly higher output power than most smartphones for use with more demanding headphones while keeping the audio background completely silent for use with very sensitive earphones.

      Fully Loaded
      With advanced Bluetooth and USB, Q1 offers scores of connectivity options. Use it as a source for Bluetooth headphones, as a Bluetooth receiver with your smartphone or tablet, or as a digital transport for external DAC. And at home, connect it to a computer over USB to use Q1 as sound card or Bluetooth transmitter.

      Physical Controls
      While the touch screen of Q1 is perfect for browsing through the music library, nothing beats physical controls for simple playback navigation. With three buttons and classic analogue volume wheel, Q1 is really easy to control even in total darkness or when placed deep into your pocket.

      Long Battery Life
      Thanks to its power-efficient design, the battery life of Q1 can reach up to 21 hours of continuous playback. Enough to last over any intercontinental flight, keeping up with any working day and going on for day and days of basic work commute. And with universal USB-C connector, it can be easily recharged almost everywhere.

      Expandable memory for all your files
      Compared to other devices, you don't need to worry about limited built-in memory, simply choose the size of MicroSD card fitting your music collection and insert it into Q1. And when your collection grows bigger, you only need to upgrade to a bigger card. Q1 is able to manage cards up to 2TB.
