Listening to audio on your mobile phone using either your stock earphones or well-known headsets sometimes isn’t enough to give you that high-quality experience. THX addresses this problem by introducing a new HiFi amplifier — the THX Onyx.

A USB dongle with a cord on one end and an audio jack can turn your digital audio signal into an analog signal for that high-fidelity listening experience for your movies, music, and games.

Master Quality Audio Support

THX has carefully integrated MQA (Master Quality Audio) into this powerful portable dongle. While your typical MP3 files give you only 10% of the data from the original studio recording, listening to MQA provides you with a higher quality audio experience.

TIDAL is one of the examples of music platforms that deliver MQA for its listeners and the Onyx MQA renderer built-in can reproduce the same quality with its ES9281PRO digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

Alternatively, you can also purchase and download your own high res audio and use your favorite apps such as Roon, Vox, USB Audio Player Pro, Audirvana, Foobar2000, Onkyo HF Player, and more.

THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier

Not only does the Onyx support MQA but also the ability to unleash your headsets’ full potential. The THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (AAA) technology cranks your headset to its maximum dynamic range to give you that satisfyingly loud and clean sound output.

AAA can also reduce harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortion by up to 40dB giving you that realistic and stress-free listening experience.

Cross-platform Compatible & Easy To Use

The THX Onyx can connect to any USB/USB-C port and it can work with Android, iOS, PC, and Mac devices and you don’t need to install any drivers.

If you’re going to get this for your iPhone, you may need to purchase a Lightning to USB-C Camera Adapter. Its magnetic cable management makes sure that you don’t leave any wiring mess behind plus it can also support headset mic enhancements

So if you’re streaming your games or in an important Zoom meeting, the THX Onyx takes care of greatly improving your audio. You can grab your own dongle at either the THX or Razer website for only $199.
