IASUS Concepts has introduced its Mobile Amp, a portable high-fidelity audio amplifier for mobile devices. The Mobile Amp features an independent rechargeable power source, which the company claims improves audio and power output to headphones, and as a result of lower power demands from the player, extends the playtime of devices like the iPod by up to “20% to 50%.” Other features include a machined aluminum analog volume control, a piano black finish with gunmetal accents, an included audio output splitter, and a built-in, rechargeable lithium polymer battery. The IASUS Mobile Amp is available now from Soundrite and sells for $59.
