Groove

Hear Every Detail

Listening to music will never be the same. 

USB DAC for Mac, Windows, & USB-C iPads.

The Best Possible Listening Experience
What if each time you listened to your favorite song, it felt like you were hearing it for the first? That it won’t take 100 plays to hear that beautiful reverb slightly panned off-center. Or the subtle laughter of the artist after recording the main vocal that is left in the song. Groove brings back the joy of listening to music by letting you hear it the way it was intended. Once you listen through Groove, music just won’t be the same without it.

Improve your headphones
Thanks to Groove’s Constant Current Drive™, you’ll discover a new level of clarity while improving the frequency response of your headphones.

Groove Listening MacBook
Mix with confidence
With Groove’s Quad Sum DAC™ design, which employs four digital-to-analog converters per channel, you will hear “the truth.” Groove’s high dynamic range and low distortion put it in a class of its own.
