Our Price £179.00 RRP £189.00 Save: £10.00
The iFi Hip DAC 2 Headphone Amp and DAC is a portable headphone amp, letting you hear great quality music on the go from your device, with a stylish design for modern music listeners.

The Hip DAC 2 is the perfect technology for music listeners on-the-go, giving you better sound from your phone or laptop than the in-built components. Simply connect the Hip DAC 2 via USB to hear upgraded sound through your headphones, with refinement and dynamics in spades. Employing a Burr-Brown DAC chip, the Hip DAC 2 keeps audio bit-perfect, exactly as it should be, and with hi-res support up to 384 kHz as well as DSD and MQA file support, hear your music with crystal clear detail.

The Hip DAC 2 features a new 16-core XMOS chip, allowing for double the clock speed and four times the memory for processing USB audio data, as well as allowing for full MQA decoding, delivering the sound of the original master recording. 

The Hip DAC 2 uses balanced audio circuits, producing less unwanted noise thanks to the separation between the left and right audio channels. The analogue output stage features a 4.4mm balanced output for headphones, as well as a 3.5mm S-Balanced connection for more standard headphones.

With a clean look, the Hip DAC 2 features just two extra controls beside the volume, PowerMatch and xBass. PowerMatch is a switchable gain, allowing you to match the sensitivity of your headphones with low impedance, while xBass is a bass boost, giving you low frequency power if your headphones require it.

The Hip DAC 2 has a battery life that will last all day, meaning you won’t have to worry about not hearing your favourite music in high quality. With a stylish sunset orange finish, the Hip DAC 2 looks as good as it sounds.
