iFi Audio hip-dac3

Many people use headphones with smartphones, tablets and computers but the audio technology in these devices restricts sound quality, which limits the enjoyment of music, movies, podcasts and more. The hip dac 3 solves this issue emphatically, connecting to your device’s USB port and upgrading the DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) and headphone amp technology to deliver an intoxicating sonic experience.
