If you are an audiophile that only wants to listen to the best audio quality digital music files, then you are probably already familiar with the FLAC format. If you are not familiar, here’s a short explanation. According to the official website, “FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality.

So, the FLAC format is better than MP3, great, everyone should just download all their songs as FLAC files, what’s the big deal? The key is, if you like listening to music through your iPhone/iPad, you’re out of luck because Apple doesn’t support the format through their Music / iTunes player, including your iPhone or iPad. That’s where Vinpower’s iXflash comes in to save the day. Even though Apple doesn’t support FLAC, you can listen to all of your songs saved in the FLAC format through an iPhone or iPad by using the iXflash APP. Whether you’re storing your FLAC music files on the iXflash drive itself or directly inside the iXflash App on your iPhone or iPad, you can easily hear every Lossless note of your flawless audio files.

The reason why you can listen to the FLAC audio files through the iXflash APP is because Vinpower implemented a special iPhone / iPad friendly software that allows our APP to store and playback files that are typically not recognized by Apple’s iOS. This gives the user many more options in the types of content they can store and fully playback through the iXflash App on any supported iPhone and iPad. If you don’t like being restricted and want to maximize your listening pleasure, select the iXflash so you too can have a true lossless quality of life, I mean audio…
