Headphone Amp Comparison

Schiit Magni 3+ vs Cyrus soundKey

Schiit Magni 3+

Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy raise the bar even higher for affordable headphone amps, with by far the highest output power in their price class–at least 200% higher than any competitor. At the same time, they provide the cleanest measured performance of any Magni, ever.

Cyrus soundKey

soundKey is an award-winning revolution in mobile music. Hi-Fi streaming services like TIDAL mean fantastic quality is available to subscribers, but phones lack the necessary hardware to get the best from this data. soundKey unlocks that data, using our years of expertise in high-resolution DAC and amplifier design. Cyrus quality audio is now available to everyone.

Reviews

The Magni 3+ is also very competent amplifier and subjectively kept up with Heresy.

I see it a step up from $9 dongles but the $99 price is hard to swallow.
