TOTL level Portable DAC/AMP.

Unboxing experience was very minimal, would have been very happy if it was with a leather case which is definitely required for this master piece.

Intial sound impressions: Got the wow factor after many months probably after a IERZ1R and now again. Every song I played put a smile on my face.

Paired with SENN IE 900, FIIO FDX, FINAL AUDIO E5000. All 3 sounded well and bought the glory back for my picky IE900 😉 which was not having a very good synerygy with chord mojo 2.

Excellent SQ, good sound stage and very powerful.

I previosly owned HIBY R6 2020, SHANLING M8, Ibasso DX300 - amp 11, amp 12, amp 13.

Out of all, I loved shanling M8 the most, now H7 which is a much upgrade for me interms of SQ from M8. H7 is not as warm as M8, but this will be the upgrade for any one who loves M8 to the core of the heart ( atleast for me 😊).

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Fantastic in every sense of the word. It has set new horizons for the Audiophiles. My only advise to the connoisseurs of quality audio is that try tk grab one before the stock expires, of course, if finance is not a constraint. Kudos once again to HPZ team for making everything possible.

This makes us really happy and we really appreciate the genuine feedback! We're glad that you have such positive thoughts about our team and the company.
