BALANCED ANALOGUE CIRCUITRY WITH GMT CLOCK FOR JITTER-FREE AUDIO

The balanced circuit embedded in the iFi Audio Hip DAC 2 is designed to reduce external noise and for ultra-low distortion. Featuring outstanding components including iFi OV op-amp, TDK C0G capacitors and a high-quality rotary volume pot along with Pentaconn connectors. The master clock on the device has also been upgraded to house the new GMT clock which features upgraded global master timing clock circuitry to eradicate jitter and enhance sound quality. Regardless of the single-ended or the balanced headphones, you are assured to get superior performance, thanks to iFi's S-Balanced® circuit.

UNIQUE SONIC TAILORING WITH ANALOGUE BASS BOOST FEATURE

The iFi Audio Hip DAC 2 offers a unique solution to customising the sound to suit your liking. Hip DAC 2 features a unique sonic tailoring option to suit your headphones and personal sonic taste with an Analogue bass boost. It comes with xBass®—an optional sonic adjustment from iFi that makes up for the low bass which is encountered in in-ear or open-back headphones. With this enabled it enhances low frequencies without muddying the mid-range.

DUAL OUTPUT OPTIONS WITH AN 8-HOUR BATTERY LIFE

The iFi Audio Hip DAC 2 comes with a long-lasting battery life that powers the device for 8+ hours. Even if your headphone consumes a lot of power to run, the Hip DAC 2 runs smoothly while providing the required output power to the headphone. The Hip DAC 2 also comes equipped with two outputs to choose from - 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced analogue output and a 3.5mm S-Balanced analogue output, which cuts distortion by 50% for single-ended headphones. This implementation is thoughtful and allows you to use various headphones without worrying about connectors and plugs.

    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.

    seems like spring time!

    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!

    Poor audio quality

    Seems to make the music too bright and warm, like if you turn up the treble too high.
