Despite the very good numbers on SINAD if I wanted to question the duration of the battery on the mobile phone ..... how long will it last draining the dongle at 2V voltage even with efficient IEM .... 45 minutes with headphones, 2-3 hrs with an IEM I guess?? .... At the end, the real use of this dongle (dongles in general) is at least questionable.

It seems there CS43131 without buffer, the same as Meizu HiFi DAC non-Pro, which I have and measured with similar results. THD at 32ohm load grows vs no load for a few times. However, the power is 2x more vs Meizu, so perhaps it has the buffer but not really good one.

Hidizs S8 and Tempotec sonata hd pro are one ????




Very likely, as they use the same dac chip, same size and button layout, etc.
Just like SMSL Idea and Sabaj DA2 share the same insides.

So the Hidizs would be equivalent to the Sonata HD non pro, with an ADC so using a mic is possible ?
