Ditch your no-name OTG adapter

William from Portland, OR on 9/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Significantly more durable than my previous no-name OTG adapter. An unexpected minor upgrade in sound quality as well. The plugs have "Carbon" written on them, which is great to see such nice wire on an adapter at this price. Note that it is not very flexible cable; this is better served on a tray table than, say, wedged between you and your seat.

Pros: Much higher build quality than generic OTG; improves sound a bit

Cons:

Must-have if you own a Droid

Michael from Charlottesville, VA on 10/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's tough, portable, and does its job. I had the DragonFly a while before purchasing the DragonTail, and I was blown away by the audio quality improvement from my Android, using Spotify Premium. I must say, I wish there were a braided-cord version... I use the DragonFly regularly while flying, and the size of my phone plus the DragonTail plus the DragonFly is difficult to manage (especially in economy seating). But the sound is so much better, it's easily worth the hassle.

Pros: much better sound from your phone

Cons: somewhat annoyingly rigid

Dickie from Austin, TX on 2/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased the dragontail to go along with my dragonfly. My primary reason for them, was to use with my android smartphone and improve my music playback. Although, I have since determined that my android devices do support USB host. Quite the disappointment for me, but I use the dragonfly with my PC, and it certainly does as represented. So, at this point, I cannot give the dragontail a fair review.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works perfect

Pros: Just long enough to leave connected and not having to deal with a long cable.

Cons: None

It IS clearer, bass more refined.

RomanJ from Portland, OR on 6/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my Dragonfly Red to us with my Android phone. The Dragonfly came with a cheap no name connector and I did some A/B testing. On my HiFiMan headphones I can tell a difference, especially in the bass response and a bit in the sound stage. Just a bit more open. Not an expensive cable so definitely worth the money.

Pros: *Extended and harder hitting bass * More open sound field.

Cons: None

Features

USB Adapter for Android Devices: The DragonTail microUSB adapter activates USB Host Mode for many Android devices, allowing the devices to transmit USB digtal audio to an outboard digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Using the DragonTail to connect to an external USB DAC, such as an AudioQuest Dragon Fly (sold separately), will provide greatly improved audio performance.

High Quality Construction: The DragonTail microUSB adapter for Android devices offers high-quality construction.

  • Solid 5% silver conductors eliminate inter-strand distortion.
  • Hard-cell foam insulation maximizes geometry stability.
  • Carbon-based noise-dissipation system minimizes RF interference.
  • All conductors controlled for RF noise directionality.

USB Connectors: On one end of the DragonTail microUSB adapter is a male microUSB connector which plugs into your Android device's microUSB port. On the other end of the adapter cable is a female USB-A connector which allows you plug in a full-size USB (type-A) male connector.
