For those of you who run ‘cans’ (headphones), the HiFiBerry DAC+ Phone is a high-resolution digital-to-analog converter for the Raspberry Pi (newer models with 40 pin GPIO connector). This is a special sound card for the Raspberry Pi, optimized for one specific use case: the best audio playback quality. The phone version uses a phone jack instead of the RCA connectors for the smallest footprint possible.

•Hardware volume control. You can control the output volume using “alsamixer” or any application that supports ALSA mixer controls.
•Connects directly to the Raspberry Pi, no additional cables needed
•No soldering, comes as a prefabricated kit. You just plug it onto the Raspberry Pi, it is conform to the Raspberry Pi hardware-attached-on-top (HAT) specification.
•Compatible with Raspberry Pi models A+, B+, 2B and 3B
•Directly powered from the Raspberry Pi, no additional power supply
•Ultra-low-noise voltage regulator for optimal audio performance
