Expert Verdict "The choices of DAP are great these days, especially at this price point. The DX160 offers 1 of three DAPs I highly recommend, especially if a reference sound is your thing."
Headfonics
"The HiBy R5 is a wonderfully designed player that provides rich features in a complete and very compact package. You have streaming, advanced DSP settings, DTA and Hi-Res Bluetooth codecs."
Heafonia
"The M6 carries all the good traits found onto the previous models – exquisite finish, good battery life, clean and dynamic sound – into a case befitting its ambitions."
Heafonia
"The SR15 is an excellent example of AK’s engineering expertise. The sound quality is top and the size and weight are just spot on for an everyday carrier."

"Original DX160 has a very wide soundstage to begin with. ’20 version makes it a touch wider, especially noticeable in mids/vocals, giving soundstage a more holographic perception."

Head-Fi

"If you go by Android benchmark scores, perhaps DX160 is not the fastest (or the smallest), but it packs one heck of an audio performance with one heck of a display screen which is hard to ignore!"

What-HiFi

"In terms of specification and user experience, the iBasso looks nigh-on ideal. But its sound – ‘perky’ in the manner of an Ibiza all-nighter – gets wearing sooner rather than later."

Headfonics

"The DX160 completes what I call the triumvirate of killer mid-fi DAPs that I have heard this year including HiBy’s R5 and FiiO’s M11. Each DAP offers something unique."

Porta-fi

"iBasso have shown again what a device should look like in 2020. Striking design, compact size, convenient controls everything is fulfilled without sacrifice to sound and other player capabilities."

"A popular phrase by the community when the DX160 first came out, was that it was "too good for the price." And it’s true. I would take the it over many other devices double what iBasso is asking."

Audiophile-ON

"The DX160 is a beautiful looking player and it’s even better sounding. It worked wonderfully with every earphone and headphone I threw at it. The interface, ergonomics, and sound are all on point."
