Summary: Hifiman HM-101 Portable Sound Card An inexpensive way to turn any USB capable computer into a hifi station.
So I received the HM101 and put it through some work.
Small, wow, comes with everything you need. It's so tiny. Key chain tiny. This is good. I like small when it comes to this because it's really portable. It comes with the USB cable and the unit itself. Nothing else needed.
Pros: Small, inexpensive, mobile, good design
Cons: Not constructed rigorously, some noise issues, bright
Summary: This was the first piece of audio gear that I ever owned when I was venturing outside of what I could get from local electronics stores. I wanted to see if this would provide any difference with my RE-0 earbuds and my friend's ATH-M50. I cannot speak for what I know now which is a lot more, but at that time I felt it was an improvement over generic computer audio.
Pros: Cheap, Portable, subtle warmth, good detail for the price
