I'd so be after something like this, but unfortunately, I've already preordered a 7, though a product like this would be perfect for the 7.
Guys be careful here if you have iphone 6s. You might get the older version which does not physically support the 6s. It will fit, but you'd almost have to break it to get it off.
will they make one for the 6s plus? also sounds like this model needs some reworking! only negative comments
My unit does not work. The battery charges but the battery does not charge the phone, the headphone out does not work. So it seems that the lightning connecter is not working. How do I get service.
So I sent an email to the support whether they can replace it for the new edition that is compatible with iphone 6s as described. Their reply was that no return is accepted for "product dissatisfaction." Not sure what I'm going to do with this $100 paper weight..
instantcrush The specs on the Massdrop page say:
"Compatible with iPhone 6/6s"
The box does not appear to show any mention of 6s support however.

That aside, I just received my DAC and found that there seems to be some problem with the headphone jack. Audio sounds terrible, almost like it is playing in mono but with one channel very weak and with an airy reverb sound to it. It sounds awful. I tried several different headphones. Is anyone else having a similar problem? If I take the headphone out and play audio over the iPhone speaker it seems to sound normal - as normal as an iPhone speaker can sound at least. Super disappointed.
I just opened my package and it seems this is the older version which only supports iphone 6? I have the older version and the package I gto from MD is completely identical-both say they are made for iphone 6. According to the manufacturer's product webpage: "New version available - updated to support both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s - please check on the packaging to purchase the correct version for your device." I bought this only because I thought I was buying the new version since the old version cost me a lot to have it removed from my iphone 6s. So is this the new version or the old?

Very interested. This package looks pretty compelling for any audiophile that owns an Iphone 6/s. I am a fan of Arcam's integrated stereo amplifiers but the reviews seem mixed on this one. Any other opinions on sound quality?
That Head-Fi review wasn't too reassuring...
i really like this concept but this is not usable as an everyday case....even if i ignore the added bulk, the upper half is bare. if you drop the phone it does not help anything.
PxOR
That is exactly my concern; this is a very cool ideas but it leaves the top half of the phone completely vulnerable.
