Proper Hi-Fi DAC

ESS Sabre ES9038Q2m DAC chip can be found in multiple Hi-Fi portable players and desktop DACs, providing UA2 with a sound quality significantly better than any modern smartphone or standard USB headphone amplifier.


Adding Headphone Amplifier

Great DAC needs a matching amplifier, so we added a dedicated headphone amplifier into the UA2, producing more power and cleaner output. Shanling have chosen to use the Ricore RT6863, which was designed espically for use with ESS DACs.


Extra Low Noise

By using a low-dropout regulator, we managed to control overall levels of a background noise, keeping the sound clear and without any unwanted noise or hiss. Ideal for even the most sensitive earphones.


Switch Mode for Gamers

UA2 was developed with a special mode, that allows it to work with portable gaming consoles. enjoy your games with better sound quality and more power for your headphones.


Zero Delay

Thanks to the USB connection, UA2 can work with any smartphone and all its apps without any additional delay. Simply enjoy movies without and audio sync issues and keep gaming at your highest potential with immediate reactions.


Pick Your Output

UA2 can be used with any standard headphones with the 3.5mm jack. And all audiophiles will appreciate the additional balanced 2.5mm jack.


Exchange Cables

With a simple USB-C connector, you can easily switch between different USB cables and connected devices. Short USB-C cables for phones, standard USB cable for a desktop use with computers and even cable for IOS devices.
