iFi Audio has designed the “GO link” to be ergonomic and functional. The flexible cable aids portability and is silver-plated with copper conductors for high signal purity. The “GO link” also has a gold-plated 3.5mm headphone output for easy compatibility with in-ear monitors with 3.5mm termination. The “GO link’s” headphone amp feeds a gold-plated 3.5mm socket, incorporating our S-Balanced configuration to reduce noise and crosstalk. It delivers a power output of 70mW into 32 ohms and a maximum voltage output of 2.05V into 600 ohms. This gives it plenty of power to drive headphones and in-ear monitors likely to be used with the “GO link” and easily outclasses the headphone outputs built into smart devices and computers.
