The two units fit together like someone built them to … fit … together. Hmm. Um, yeah. Sorry — fit together like a glove. Had to be done. But the name totally fits, when joined, they’re really one unit. The two are obviously going to be a bit bulkier in the hand or pocket than the AK unit by itself, but it’s less awkward than it sounds. Trust me. And the fit and finish on this Glove unit is robust; it seems tough. Which is good. Because I’m clumsy.
The sound, however, is absolutely a huge step forward for the little AK player. There’s more of everything — more detail, air, bass, blah blah blah. The fact that Glove drives the snot out of headphones is just pure audio joy.
Release is upcoming, as are the finals on the details, so stay tuned. We are.
