Ideal for Audiophiles

These headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of headphones like these. You can expect these headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Best Suited for Portable Use

The ability to carry your favourite headphone around is priceless for those who value them. These headphones and devices offer the ultimate portability experience without sacrificing sound quality. If you’re someone who appreciates cutting edge engineering, quality sound and portability, then look no further. Designed to be trusty companions, these headphones and devices are cleverly engineered with the latest technology to offer the ultimate combination of portability + hi-fidelity.

Battery Life

A good pair of headphones or Hi-Fi devices can make all the difference when it comes to listening to music, watching movies, or playing video games. They can also be a great way to enjoy Internet radio and podcasts, as well as phone calls. To do any of these tasks, they need to offer a good battery life, and these do just that. Packed with a high-performance and long-lasting battery so that nothing comes between you and your music. No interruptions, just pure joy!

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Volume Controls

If your headphones have volume controls, you will be able to adjust the volume level with a simple touch of a button without having to reach for your source device. Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback. Having volume controls on headphones or at least in-line controls on the audio cable may seem unnecessary to some people, but they are, in fact, quite convenient.

Hip hip hurray!!

Yes, hip dac2 is absolutely stunning in looks and functionality.
Very powerful device. Can easily drive big cans. Power match button works really well with attached earphones or headphones and feeds them with required power. I recommend them to keep them on always.
Good resolving power (sopports MQA also), warm sound signature and goes well with most popular music.
Xbass feature is absolute dope for enjoying party songs, EDM, Electronic.
Recommended for bollywood, electronic, EDM, Dance, New age, Trance and similar music genres.
I have used Fiio BTR3, BTR5, Q1 Mk2, but compared to those this has unique warm and enjoyable sound.
If you are looking for dac amp for your sharp sounding iems like.. KZ, this is it.

Thanks to HPZ team for fast and safe delivery of the product and making latest audiophile products available in India.

Hey Gautam,

iFi Hip-Dac2: One of the best budget options

At first, I was a little bit skeptical about buying it. I had no idea about the performance and I hadn't used anything from iFi before this. But I was pleasantly surprised after using this AMP/DAC. I am not an audiophile (at least not yet) but I now know that music sounds natural, clean and wide (better sound stage). The X-Bass feature really adds that oomph and the vocals pop-up cleanly. Of course the Dragonfly Red surely tops it in sound quality. However, the USP for this Hip-Dac2 is the 4.4,, Pentaconn balanced connector. I use the Sennheiser HD650 (300 Ohm). Just to put things into a little perspective, the Dragonfly Red is good sounding at the highest volume (Sound quality is awesome but volume is okay, not loud by any means), but I wasn't even able to try out the full volume on the Hip-Dac2 (with the 4.4mm Headphone Zone Balanced cable for Sennheiser HD650). I had called up the Headphone Zone team before buying it and they told me the 4.4mm balanced connector sends out almost double voltage to the headphones and I would be able to enjoy the HD650 to it's full potential. And boy oh boy, they didn't lie. The headphone now sounds the best. (The max volume that I am able to hear is about 70% on the Hip-Dac2). Of course, needless to say, I am not going back to the Dragonfly Red with the 3.5mm jack. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the Red, just that the 4.4mm pentaconn connector is way better in terms of sound reproduction. The device itself is a bit large (like another mobile with your mobile) and the battery could use a little more juice (about 6-8 hours, I am told). But all in all, I am quite happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend the iFi Hip-Dac2, especially from Headphone Zone.
I might have a small complaint about the 4.4mm balanced cable from Headphone Zone, it's too expensive at Rs. 8999. I knew what I was getting into when I decided to ditch my Apple Airpods and board the Hi-res, wired, full-size, studio-grade monitoring headphones train. But still, 9k for a cable really seems high.
Thanks for the awesome service too guys, you guys would be my first recommendation on that front.

Hey Deepak,
Great to know you are loving the hip-dac2 but we'd like to inform you that the prices for products are usually decided by the brand so we hardly meddle with it. Thank you for the awesome review though. Cheers!

Awesome Buy

Wanted something that could drive my headphones with iPhone. For in ear 24/48 kHz apple adapter was fine. FiiOs had been too bland and too neutral for me. Not an audiophile but love music. Treble is slightly boosted but that can be fixed with equaliser. Loving it. Amazing delivery on time as well.

Tried a highly rated dac before this, could not even make out the difference. Then comes this...and it feels like spring :)
Awesomely crisp sound and just the right kind of bass you need with ample power at disposal. I accidentally came across the review on Youtube for this beauty of a product (except for connector nightmares), and was pleasantly surprised to find it so promptly available on Headphone Zone just after launch. Highly recommended!

Great DAC + AMP

Powerful DAC/AMP. Power match and bass boost works well. Powerful enough to drive my planar headphones. Marginal upgrade over the Hip DAC v1 (so, would not recommend buying for those who have the v1 of the Hip DAC)

Works as expected!

I was a little sceptical at first about this dac. I was doing my research and all as a wise man should obviously do before going for any new product, but in the back of my mind I also knew very well that never to trust reviews blindly even from so-called 'trusted' reviewers out there, because everybody has a different choice after all and nowadays rarely anyone is truly honest about the reviews of a certain product.
But, I really was surprised by the performance of hip dac 2, as it definitely enhances the audio in a very nice way without muffling it up unnecessarily. It makes the sound really warm and gives excellent clarity to the vocals too.
That bass boost feature also gives just the right amount of bass and actually kind of balances the bass and tonality of the sound.
I found this feature surprisingly good.
I have a 5 years old audio technica m50x and a hifiman deva with me and this dac performs phenomenally good on them!
Although I feel sometimes that a seperate ifi amplifier like zen can coupled with hip dac 2 will make a complete, ultimate package for a divine listening experience. I will go for a zen can sometime in the near future.
But still with or without zen can this is a superb DAC and definitely highly recommend! Just go for it, because you will not regret buying something good like this at such a price point.
