Ifi Audio hip-dac Dac/headphone amplifier


The hip-dac is an incredible piece of gear. What it gives you for the price is a lot more than I ever expected. Cool design, solid feeling, a good amount of power, a useful bass boost function, balanced drive, nice volume knob.

The only two things I would really want to change is ditch the usb A data connection for usb C and a larger capacity battery, if it is possible without making the unit bigger.

But I love my hip-dac as it is, it’s such a neat little package.


Aye. USB c to rule them all.

“The iFi hip-dac, is simply put, the best-looking portable DAC we’ve ever seen… We were impressed by just how much of a difference the hip-dac made to the sound of our headphones; even when using some of the best headphones we’ve ever tested” - @techradar
