UNBOXED

Headphone Zone Certified Unboxed Units

Unboxed units are as good as new products with the product's packaging being unavailable. These products give you the same satisfaction of new products - but at down-to-earth prices. Usually, the product's packaging may have gotten damaged in transit. Customers use a product once or twice and then return it with opened up packaging.

WHERE DO UNBOXED PRODUCTS COME FROM?

 

Customer Returns
Returned headphones are fully functional products that have left the warehouse and therefore can no longer be sold as new as their packaging has been opened. The product may have been used once or twice by the customer who returned it.
 
Transit Damages
Sometimes we receive headphones in damaged packaging due to shipping accidents. These are brand new headphones with cosmetic flaws on the packaging.

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.

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.
