The audio world’s favourite hip-flask…
…now comes in GOLD!
Whatever you put in your hip-dac 2, RnB, pop, jazz or heavy metal, the limited gold edition is the one for you.
It is the same amazing portable, hi-res DAC/headphone amp as before with a new luxurious look and a performance tweak or two. The hip-dac 2 gold edition benefits from a more extended treble and an upgraded power supply to bring you even more musical enjoyment.
And, have we mentioned it yet? It’s gold!

Power and performance

Replace the inferior DAC and amp circuitry in your smartphone, tablet, PC and Mac with the hip-dac 2 gold edition to vastly improve headphone sound both at home and on the go. The hip-dac 2 gold edition offers state-of-the-art hi-res audio support – 24-bit/384kHz PCM, bit-perfect DSD and MQA. It uses our powerful high-fidelity amp stage to drive all corded headphones and in-ear monitors with ease. The balanced circuit design delivers ultra-low signal distortion.

Superior sonics

It boasts a high-quality rotary analogue volume control and PowerMatch setting matches the level of drive to the connected headphones. XBass tailors bass response to suit your music and your headphones.
The hip-dac 2 gold edition has two headphone outputs: 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced and 3.5mm S-Balanced. The S-Balanced output cuts distortion by 50% with single-ended headphone connections. It has USB-A input for audio and separate USB-C input for charging. The seamless aluminium enclosure of the hip-dac 2 gold edition slips easily into a bag or pocket. And, it’s GOLD!!!
