Headphone Zone Collaborates with ddHiFi to create a Hi-Res DAC

Specially created for the audiophiles of India, this is a hi-res USB dongle DAC that has been 1 year in the making with ddHiFi. The goal was to create an affordable DAC under Rs. 2000 specifically for India’s audiophile community and Headphone Zone reached out to ddHiFi to undertake this very ambitious project.

Headphone-Zone-X-ddHiFi-Hi-Res-DAC

Turn Your Smartphone into a Hi-Res Audio Player

Most smartphones come with an in-built DAC that either sound terrible or are simply not capable of playing high resolution music. The Headphone Zone X ddHiFi Hi-Res DAC is a simple plug-and-play device that transforms any smartphone into a high resolution audio player, bypassing the in-built DAC. For smartphones with a USB C output, the device works straight out of the box. For iPhones with a lightning port, a Type-C to lightning adaptor would be needed, like the Hidizs LT-03. If you're someone who's just starting your audiophile journey, this is now the easiest way for you to start listening to high resolution music.

For us to be able to put the Headphone Zone brand name on any product means that we stand by the sound quality & performance. I firmly believe that an affordable Hi-Res dongle DAC is exactly what India's audiophiles need at this point of time.
