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.

NOT JUST AN MQA RENDERER BUT A MQA DECODER AS WELL

Enjoy your music in the original master recording quality as the ZEN DAC V2 can now render and decode MQA files seamlessly. Keep an eye on the LED light that glows green while decoding and playing MQA files. The same light turns blue to indicate the MQA Studio file being played.

A POWERMATCH SWITCH TO DRIVE YOUR HEADPHONES AND IEMS

This headphone amp has Powermatch—A switch that adjusts the gain to match that of the headphone. Leave it at a lower setting for hiss-free audio with highly sensitive IEMs. Boost it for low impedance on/over-ears that need that extra oomph.

DEAR BASSHEADS, THE ZEN DAC V2 IS NOW YOUR ULTIMATE CHILLING MACHINE

The ZEN DAC gives you a TrueBass experience. It has a switchable ‘bass boost’ which operates in the analogue domain. It enhances the bass without muddying the mid-range. Perfect for use with IEMs or open-back headphones which often lose out on bass. It does not have DSP.
