Arjun (Delhi)
Great DAP, Suitalble for everyone

Great DAP, suitable for everyone. You can stream wirelessly, play wirelessly (over buds) or by a USB DAC or through the internal DAC.
As for the DAC, it seems better than my DAC with the Synaptics CX1993 chip.

It comes with a screen protector and clear case bundled, and has a protector already applied on the front and back glass surfaces.

Playback was easily 10 hours plus, took about 30 minutes to charge full. The Volume knob is a bit fiddly (it moves a little between the ratcheting) but otherwise is solid. Buttons work well, but the placement will take a while for you to get used to.

This makes us really happy and we really appreciate the genuine feedback! We're glad that you have such positive thoughts about our team and the company.

Sidd (Bengaluru)
Amazing for beginers

As my first dap i found this amazing but tyere are still some thing to be ironed out

It has great power(they can drive kz pr2s that stumped even the btr5)
Rarely hangs/crashes
Has a good dac mode and works well
Has good recording and airplay/dlna
Can transfer songs by a local website(huge W i can transfer my whole library without even needing a cable i can just hook up to wifi and transfer songs fast and reliabaly)

Bluetooth mode dosent work well with ipad
Has a decent delay/lag(not suited for videos as words seem delayed)
Can be hard to navigate through the library at times

Luckily these flaws arent related to harware and are mainly software or optimisation based so can be worked out with a firmware update

Since this is the cheapest dac on the market this has raised the bar of value for money

According to me this a direct pic for any new audiophile who just wants to dip their toes before jumping in

If you want to buy this dont think twice just get it (coming from a guy who very pick about fube detaiks and almost never stops someone from thinking twice)

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Raman (Delhi)
Totally satisfied!

I usually don't buy products from websites as they make me nervous, but this time I really wanted a Digital Audio Player (DAP). I couldn't find one of my choice on Amazon, so I stumbled upon Headphone Zone. At first, I was a bit apprehensive, but now I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

I'm impressed by their efforts in keeping me updated about my product through emails at every step. They delivered the product to me in just 2 days, although the delivery time may vary for others.
Regarding the DAP itself, it fits perfectly for my needs, and if you haven't used an MP3 player before, it won't disappoint you.

Here are some key points about the DAP:

Lightweight: It weighs around 70 grams and fits perfectly in my hand. The only minor drawback is that I wish the screen could be a little bit bigger, but it's not a deal breaker.

Battery Life: The DAP has a 1000mAh battery, providing approximately 15 hours of playtime, which is sufficient for my needs.
Design and Build: The device has a well-made, smooth plastic frame, and it has a glass back. The overall design is appealing.

Connectivity: The DAP comes with Bluetooth 5.0 technology, allowing for seamless wireless connection. It also has Wi-Fi connectivity 2.4ghz, enabling easy access to 2 online music streaming services and firmware updates.

In conclusion, my ordering experience with Headphone Zone has been excellent, and I highly recommend their services. The DAP I purchased has met my expectations, offering a lightweight design, good battery life, reliable Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, and a well-built construction.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and services, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
