iFi Audio Hip-Dac


Hip, hot and happening

The 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

The 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 and 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.


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 3.5mmS-Balanced. Enjoy all the benefits of balanced from your single-ended connection.


Feel the Force…

The 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. The hip-dac also sports xBass - the 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.
