GO wireless. Go GO pod.
The GO pod is a pair of wearable Bluetooth DAC/headphone amps designed to make your premium in-ear monitors (IEMs) wireless.
It is the first device in the world to support Hi-Res 96kHz/24bits with LDAC and Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound (aptX Adaptive) Bluetooth codecs on TWS.
Given the quality of the GO pod’s circuitry, when combined with a well-chosen pair of high-performance IEMs, the resulting sound is far in advance of any ‘true wireless’ earbuds or Bluetooth headphones.
Using a pair of GO pods is simple. First, detach the cable from your favourite IEMs and connect the earpieces to the left and right pods. Then, pair the pods with your source device (a smartphone, for example) and hook the ergonomically designed ear loops around your ears to ensure a comfortable fit… the result is unrivalled TWS (True Wireless Stereo) headphone sound.
Qualcomm’s 24-bit aptX HD and aptX Adaptive formats are also covered, offering sample rates of up to 48kHz and 96kHz respectively, with the additional benefit of QHS (Qualcomm High Speed) providing an extra 300kbps of bandwidth. Other supported codecs include aptX Low Latency, regular aptX, AAC and SBC.
This means that every possible source device is handled at the highest audio resolution its Bluetooth specification allows.
Connected, in more ways than one
IEM manufacturers use a variety of connection types, but whichever is used by your favourite brand iFi has it covered. The GO pod’s detachable ear loop contains the IEM connector, and these are interchangeable – iFi has made ear loops for MMCX, 2pin, Pentaconn, T2 and A2DC connection types.
And talking of IEM manufacturers…
We have collaborated with some of the world’s best IEM manufacturers to find the perfect ‘GO pod + IEM’ partners.
They have been with us for every step of the development process to ensure that this collection of specially curated packages delivers the finest Bluetooth wireless headphone sound in the world.
The first 1,000 GO pods produced will come packaged with a pair of IEMs of your choice from this carefully crafted selection and will contain the necessary ear loops.
Please note the GO pod + IEM bundles are only available directly from iFi via our website or via our IEM partners.
After the first 1,000, the GO pod will become available as standalone product, with ear loops for MMCX and 2-pin IEM connectors. Additional ear loops for Pentaconn, T2 and A2DC connections will be available. The standalone GO pod and ear loops will be available via our standard distribution network.

The balanced mid frequencies and a pleasant high-mid band respond delightfully to a host of music and recording styles at every volume level. The U4s has an open, airy quality that coupled with the extended soundstage produces a life-like sonic experience.
True wireless earbuds rely on the SoC (System on a Chip) solution to integrate the requisite tech into a tiny space. Crucial stages like Bluetooth decoding, digital-to-analogue conversion and amplification are all-in-one to save space and cost. This compromises sound quality.
The GO pod is distinctly different. Each critical stage is designed separately and optimised individually to ensure excellent sound quality – Bluetooth, DAC and amplification. Discover more about the tech below.
Much like top-level hi-fi loudspeakers, high-quality corded IEMs are engineered for sonic excellence, combining multiple hi-tech drive units to transmit sound directly into your ear canal.
Given the high-level of audio engineering in both, connecting a pair of these IEMs to the GO pod results in sound that is sooo much better than regular true wireless earbuds.
The GO pod comes with a smartly designed charging case, with softly lined internal compartments and sufficient room to accommodate connected IEMs as well as the pods themselves. A 1500mAH rechargeable battery is built into the charging case; a pair of GO pods will play for up to seven hours on a single charge, while the case provides multiple recharges to enable up to 35 hours of playing time. The case supports both Qi wireless charging and USB-C fast charging.
