If you see a product marked with “🌱 Ideal for Beginners," it indicates that this device is perfect for starting your audiophile journey.

Battery Capacity

Power that keeps your music going.

If you see products marked as “🔋 Battery Capacity”, rejoice in the knowledge that your device is equipped with a robust battery, providing you with extended usage time and reducing the frequency of recharges, so you can focus on your favourite tracks.

Storage

Storage is important. Even in this era of streaming music, you’d want to make sure you have enough space to store your amazing collection of music on your player. Imagine a long flight, it’s your offline files you’re going to be listening to.


Keeping your entire collection of Hi-Resolution music in one place is the most convenient way of carrying your music library. However, Hi-Resolution files are heavy. Most songs in a FLAC format can be about 100mb per track. So more space is always better.


Most players support both internal storage and expandable storage via an external memory card. Make sure you check both - the internal memory on players, and consider the maximum supported size of the expandable storage. It’s best to keep your library of offline files in expandable storage and use the internal storage for saving files from streaming apps.




At the time of writing this article, MicroSD cards for 256 GB were easily available and affordable for less than Rs. 2000. Higher capacity cards are also available, but that seems to be the sweet spot.

Headfonics

"The AP80 Pro-X is a budget powerhouse, priced at a budget of $189, and should make a lot of people happy with its nearly invisible pocketable size that functions as a DAP, USB DAC, BT DAC, and even as a phone dongle."

"It is balanced, powerful enough to drive all types of IEMs, earbuds and even some large overheads. Can’t even imagine which other new virtues would Hidizs introduce in case if AP80 PRO-X is planned for future upgrades."

"The Hidizs AP80 PRO-X to be a really enticing device, mostly thanks to its minuscule size. It is supremely portable and it fits even in women’s trousers – which is quite a feat, given the tiny pockets those are fitted with."

"The AP80 PRO and now the PRO-X continue to be terrific, ruggedly built, and eminently pocketable, portable audio sources, and I still recommend them both strongly as the budget DAPs to beat."

Good Beginner audiophile DAP

This is a very good beginner audiophile DAP, its little on the expensive side but totally worth it. There are no apps to support this which is the reason I'm docking off a point. To create playlist you either rely on in player mechanism which is tedious, would have improved the experience 100 times better if there is mobile or desktop app like iTunes.
Other than that the product is very good, sound signature is good, supports USB-C dongle too, which was a welcome surprise. Once again HPZ did well on delivery side and got playlist booklet which I loved it.

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!

Small but packs a punch

Wanted a budget player for my CA Honeydew. Honeydew are bass heavy. But paired with the AP80 they sound sublime. Punch and resolution.

The overall sound envelope is pretty broad which is nice. However, the quality of the output is average. If you're listening to classical music, the output gets painful on a flat channel. I tuned the equalizer and that helped a little but the output sound had decreased drastically. Overall, a little disappointed. Great service by headphone-zone though!!
