iFi Audio hip-dac
This iFi Audio hip-dac is a Hi-Res audio DAC/headphones amplifier with a beautiful compact design that you can easily take anywhere. Connect the hip-dac with a USB or Lightning cable to your smartphone, plug in your headphones and listen to your favorite music in a perfect audiophile sound quality. Because of its size, this DAC is especially suitable for smartphone use, but you can also connect the hip-dac to a pc, Mac or notebook.
If your headphones are equipped with a balanced headphones cable including a 4.4mm Pentaconn jack, the iFi hip-dac allows you to experience the best possible sound quality. If your headphones only come with a single-ended headphones cable including a more common 3.5mm headphones jack, you can still take full advantage of the low distortion and high sound quality of this fully balanced hip-dac.
Superior sound quality
It doesn't matter which headphones you like to match with this iFi hip-dac. PowerMatch enables you to switch the gain level so most headphones will sound excellent with the iFi Audio hip-dac. With XBass you can boost the low frequencies for a more dynamic music experience with open-back headphones or in-ear monitors. Furthermore, the exclusive iFi Audio firmware allows you to tweak the sound balance exactly to your personal taste.
Bit perfect conversion
The Burr-Brown premium DAC that is applied by iFi can handle resolutions up to DSD256, 32bit/384kHz PCM and DXD. The hip-dac also supports MQA, that allows you to enjoy e.g. the Tidal 'Masters' collection on the go in the highest possible sound quality. Thanks to the GMT Femto precision clock, jitter is a thing of the past. If you're looking for a headphones amplifier that can do it all and lets you enjoy your favorite music up to 12 hours on a single charge, then this iFi Audio hip-dac would be your perfect choice.
