Take the hip-dac, our mini DAC/headphone amplifier, with you wherever you go. Improved music on the move. Great looks and fabulous sound.

An open box product - discounted to clear.

Hip, hot and happening

Our hip-dac is the perfect companion for music lovers on the go.

Not only will its hi-res specs make your tunes sound fabulous, but its hot, on-trend styling will make them look pretty amazing too.

Smartly dressed in petrol blue with a touch of copper, the go-anywhere hip-dac was designed to slip discreetly into your pocket BUT its cool look might mean you want to keep it on display.

For music lovers everywhere

Our miniature DAC/headphone amplifier replaces the inferior DAC and amp in your smart device, PC or Mac. Simply connect the hip-dac via USB, insert headphones DACand away you go.

Relax with your favourite music streamer, Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal as the hip-dac delivers a sound brimming with bold dynamism and fluid refinement.

Small but mighty

Whether you are curling up in Costa or on your commute, our hip-dac delivers hi-res music with flair.

Thanks to the Burr Brown chip, audio remains ‘bit-perfect’. Music, just as it should be.

The hip-dac supports hi-res PCM up to 384kHz as well as DSD256 and MQA as used by Tidal’s ‘Master’ tier.

Balanced. Because you’re worth it.

Balanced audio circuits mean less unwanted noise.

The hip-dac boasts a balanced, analogue stage to bring you the best musicality for miles around.

It sports a 4.4mm balanced output for balanced headphone cables/connectors.

For those ‘hissy’ IEMs, use the 3.5mm S-Balanced. Enjoy all the benefits of balanced from your single-ended connection.

Feel the Force…

Let it guide your actions…

Our small but mighty hip-dac sports PowerMatch – switchable gain.

Even on the go, adjust input sensitivity to match the level of drive to the load of your headphones.

Leave it off for those those ‘out and about’ IEMs and pop it on for on/over-ear types with relatively low impedance that require more oomph.

It’s still all about the bass…

xBass – our iFi optional sonic adjustment is still very much in vogue and addresses the lack of bass that’s often apparent with in-ears or open back headphones.

Boost that bass, and “bring the booty back” to your iEMs with the hip-dac.

Long may it last…

And with extensive battery life, you can take it out with you all day.

The hip-dac can join you at the gym first thing, take you out for lunch and keep your feet a tapping on your journey home.
