Our Take
iFi Audio is on the rise, y'all. The ZEN DAC redefined the entry level DAC/amp last year, and iFi is doing it again to portable DAC/amps this year with the hip-dac. We love this thing. It's solid, sexy, pocketable, powerful, and most importantly – sounds way better than you'd expect at this price. Wholeheartedly recommended.

From iFi Audio

Smartly dressed in petrol blue with a touch of copper, the go-anywhere hip-dac is designed to slip discretely into a pocket and offers an extensive hi-res specification that belies its eminently affordable $149 price tag.

The hip-dac replaces the inferior DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Convertor) and amp circuitry in smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs to vastly improve headphone sound.

Its design and performance set it apart from other DAC/headphone amps in its class.­ Connect your playback device via USB, plug in your favorite corded headphones or in-ear monitors and the hip-dac delivers a sound brimming with bold dynamism and fluid refinement, effortlessly engaging the listener with all manner of music.
