DUAL HI-RES AUDIO CERTIFIED DEVICE SUPPORTING 8X MQA UNFOLDING NATIVELY
Hi-Res Audio (HRA) is a standard for high-quality audio products set by the Japanese Audio Society (JAS) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), currently recognised and supported by premium devices, as well as audio connoisseurs far and wide. Hi-Res Audio Wireless(HRAW) is a subset of the Hi-Res Audio (HRA) for wireless audio products that support certified Bluetooth codecs. HRAW requires certified devices to be able to handle digital resolutions above 24-bit/96kHz. The Hidizs AP80 Pro-X is awarded both HRA and HRAW certification owing to its ability to playback hi-res files natively and wirelessly. HiDizs AP80 Pro-X includes MQA technology, with 8x unfolding, which enables you to playback MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.

To enable easy connectivity, the AP80 Pro-X offers Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity with Bidirectional connections along with support for HiBy UAT (a Bluetooth audio codec that supports the industry-leading sample rate of 192kHz), Sony LDAC and CSR APT-X protocols. The Hidizs AP80 Pro-X can be a Bluetooth audio source and double as a professional Bluetooth DAC and Amp. With the inclusion of the mentioned technologies, the AP80 Pro-X rises above the rest and offers a highly immersive audio listening experience.
COMPATIBLE WITH VARIOUS OPERATING SYSTEMS AND EQUIPPED WITH DUAL HEADPHONE OUTPUTS
Hidizs AP80 Pro-X can be a digital audio player(DAP) once connected to an external DAC and Amp for cleaner audio output quality, it can also serve as a powerful external DAC and Amp to improve original audio quality when connected to your phone or PC. The AP80 Pro-X offers compatibility with MAC OS, iPad OS, Windows XP, Windows 7/8/10 and newer systems. This multi-OS support allows you to connect and use the AP80 Pro-X with virtually any device. As a pocket-sized music player (DAP), AP80 Pro-X’s size is similar to a credit card, but it includes both single-ended 3.5mm and balanced 2.5mm jacks in its compact body. The inclusion of balanced and single-ended outputs is thoughtful and allows you to use your favourite headphones and IEM without worry.
DESIGNED WITH GEOMETRIC AESTHETICS WITH A HD TOUCHSCREEN AND ADDED FUNCTIONALITY
The Hidizs AP80 Pro-X is expertly built with an X-Shaped design showcasing stunning geometric aesthetics. The entirety of the body is made from a single piece of aluminium with 5-Axis CNC technology. The right side of the AP80 Pro-X is highlighted with an X-shaped design, angular diamond surfaces, and the geometry of a six-sided ice crystal embedded with a Japanese ALPS volume wheel. Taken together, these components make for genuine visual pleasure no matter how you look at it. The AP80 Pro-X comes embedded with a Samsung 2.45" (480×360) IPS HD touchscreen that delivers clear picture quality, faster response time, richer visual details and a more comfortable viewing experience.

"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."Read More
"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."Read More
"The Hidizs AP80 Pro-X is a versatile and competent dap with proven technology that provides me with lots of pleasure. Particularly its balanced circuit is impressive. As a DAC, it probably beats most budget dongles."Read More
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!
Wanted a budget player for my CA Honeydew. Honeydew are bass heavy. But paired with the AP80 they sound sublime. Punch and resolution.
SUCH A BEAUTIFU / COMPACT DESIGN WITH HIGH ABILITY
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!!
