"Mo-Fi changes all that, with a built-in audiophile amplifier that delivers the power and quality of a hi-fi system-inside your headphones. With Mo-Fi, we've brought a high-end listening experience to the mobile world we all live in. In fact, the concept is so simple and elegant, we couldn't believe that it hadn't been done before.
