iFi Audio Hip-dac Headphone DAC/Amplifier

'If you’re looking for a high quality portable DAC, this iFi is well worth a place on the shortlist. The hip-dac’s combination of battery power, fine build and easy-going sound quality makes it one of the front-runners at this level.'
 
WHAT HI-FI? 2020
 
Smartly dressed in petrol blue with a touch of copper, the go-anywhere hip-dac is designed to slip discretely into a pocket and offers an extensive hi-res specification given the size and portability of this little dac/amplifier.
 
The hip-dac replaces the inferior DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Convertor) and amp circuitry in smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs to vastly improve headphone sound. Its design and performance set it apart from other DAC/headphone amps in its class.­– connect your playback device via USB, plug in your favourite corded headphones or in-ear monitors and the hip-dac delivers a sound brimming with bold dynamism and fluid refinement, effortlessly engaging the listener with all manner of music.
 
In the home, in the office, on a train or plane – the hip-dac is the music lover’s inseparable friend.

Features:

  • Enjoy mind-blowing music at your fingertips quickly and easily with the user-friendly, compact hip-dac.
  • Connect the hip-dac via USB between your smart device, laptop and corded headphones while out and about.
  • Hook it up to your PC or Mac at home or in the office.
  • The hip-dac delivers hi-res, ‘bit perfect’ PCM and DXD up to 384kHz and up to DSD256 DSD256 as well as MQA.
  • Make the most of your balanced headphones wherever you are with the hip-dac’s 4.4mm sockets.
  • Reap the benefits of balanced even with normal headphones as the 3.5mm single-ended socket uses our unique S-Balanced technology to cut crosstalk and distortion in half.
  • The analogue output stage of the hip-dac is a balanced (differential) design which means less interference and crosstalk.
  • Talior the sound of the hip-dac to your playback priorities with additional, exclusive iFi firmware.
  • Benefit from PowerMatch – switchable gain – to cater for headphone sensitivity.

Incredibly swift delivery to The Netherlands. Absolutely chuffed with the product after initial setup on my Android phone. UAPP add-on made all the difference for the top quality from Tidal. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable mobile DAC. Top stuff!
