This amp is $29.93 on amazon in the USA as of this moment... even paying for shipping ($5) that's a dollar cheaper than the best price here... not to mention one might have prime, or buy something else for $5 and get free shipping... suffice it to say the price is not right.
Not happy myself got this shipped to the uk and then had to pay what equates to $18 in import taxes
how can they charge me 50% tax on this item would have been way cheaper to buy in the uk

In the meantime, we’ll do everything we can to update you on information we receive from the vendor about your order status so you know the location of your order throughout the process.

Thanks again for being a part of this community! You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/6.
CHECK AMAZON FIRST. I JUST DID AND ITS $31.66 US with 2 day free shipping as of 9/25 4:37 pm
Amazon, as of September 24, actually has a lower price than possible with this drop, plus the cheap two-day shipping.
Just get this off amazon. Faster shipping for pretty much the same price.
At the lowest price, this will be $41.23 USD ($54.75 CAD) shipped to Canada. Amazon has it for $49.99 CAD, with prime shipping.

If you're in Canada, you can have this the day after tomorrow for $5 less than waiting 1 month + to get this drop.
I have had this little amp Velcro'd to the back of my phone for 3 months. I use it a minimum of 6 days a week at work 8-12 hr shifts. I enjoy mine every time I flip the power button on! I have no problems driving any of my iems or the few pairs of cans that I have left. People at work can't believe I listen to music that loud all day. The sound coming out of my iems is louder than any of their phone speakers. I have charged mine 6-7 times so far and I have yet to have the battery die on me. I work in a large freezer most of my day (6 hours of it) no problems yet! It's taken a few good hits and only a small ding and scratch are on it. I'm not sure why some of you are having issues with little or no sound output. Rma is my suggestion.

As for what I would like the next model to have, make it a 3 way jack and patch cable so you can use the controls and mic that most iems have. This way I don't have to pull my phone out to skip a track. Volume control knob works well with my holster. (I know
I can modify mine to do it, so I don't think that they would have an issue with doing it from the factory. )

Possibly a 3 way eq switch of sorts. Flat/bass boost/treble boost.

And a longer charger cable. Would be nice if they converted to micro usb standard like practically everything else on earth has.
A word of warning: I own the NX2 which is an improved version of this and I don't like it one bit. At first I was impressed by the 100+ hour battery life which is amazing for just a 1000mah battery, but when using it I realized it doesn't use much power because it doesn't do much. It hardly amplifies the signal. I first tried it with full sized headphones, could barely hear the music. My IEM's didn't get amplified either, even the most sensitive IEM's it couldn't drive properly. The DAC portion of it doesn't sound any better than my Note 3.

So what's the point of this little amp/DAC? It's cheap and has a long battery life. But it doesn't improve the sound at all and it doesn't even amplify a noticeable amount. Definitely not enough anyway, not even for IEM's.

Avoid.

Exactly my findings with the NX1. It actually decreases the output volume before applying supposed "amplification". Which I cannot tell if it is doing that or not because of the decrease prior to this supposed "amplification". Steer clear
With tax shipped to CA is $35.88 on Massdrop. Amazon's price is $38.00 with 2-day shipping. For $2.12 more, you can save yourself a month wait. Hard to justify this drop.
I ordered during the last drop and must have a broken unit. This thing actually makes all my input devices quieter than the straight source. The High/Low gain is about the same and even when using IEM's I have to switch to high gain. Took a shot and lost $40.
Could I use this at my desk all the time? I'm not interested in taking one with me everywhere and I'm looking for an affordable and good entrylevel AMP.
I was quite excited to receive my NX1 today, however upon opening the parcel, I found that the packaging was all scratched up with edges deformed and to add to that, the packaging was opened as well. Charging it now and hoping that nothing happened to it.

The reviews on this amp are very positive. However, the price here isn't the best. I can order it from Amazon for just four dollars more (when you add in the cost of Massdrop shipping) and have it in two days. Elsewhere I've found it for around $36 (plus shipping). Just not a smoking deal on this one - big thanks though for highlighting the amp, as I think I'll have to pick one up soon.
