While Essential didn't go down that route with the PH-1, it's still quite annoying to know that the company is offering a feature that should have been on the device at launch, then making you pay for it. That run of surpassed expectations continues today, when Essential announced the PH-1's first attachment module since its launch.

According to a blog post from Essential, the Audio Adapter HD is machined from titanium, features a high-res ESS Sabre DAC with hardware MQA rendering, and an audiophile-grade amp for use with your high-impedance headphones.

Along with the new accessory, the Essential Phone's also receiving a software update that gives it MQA certification.

Interesting Things Apple Didn’t Clarify About iOS 12
Apple has added several simple actions users can perform without having to leave Finder, such as rotating and cropping photos. Valve has not responded to the new guidelines yet, but we imagine that the iOS Steam Link app will be released soon enough.

The Android ecosystem has had an update problem ever since its inception, but things seem to be changing thanks to Project Treble. More importantly, Essential announced that all PH-1 owners will have access to thousands of MQA tracks on TIDAL.

Essential is also partnering with TIDAL to offer users a 3-month free subscription to experience this new audio quality. These earbuds normally cost $99 and include USB Audio Class 2 support and a 9.2mm High Resolution driver. Well, the "Audio Adapter HD" connects to the same spot on the phone as the 360 camera accessory. There's no pricing available for this just yet, and Essential simply says that it's coming "this summer".
