Headphone Zone Collaborates with ddHiFi to create an affordable Hi-Res DAC

Headphone Zone and ddHiFi have launched a Hi-Res DAC designed for audiophiles in India. The device is a hi-res USB dongle DAC that has been in development with ddHiFi for a year. Headphone Zone collaborated with ddHiFi to create an affordable DAC under ₹2000 for India’s audiophile community.

ddHiFi is an established company that produces high-quality accessories and connectors.

During the collaboration, Headphone Zone and ddHiFi’s founder, Demond Ding, worked together to design the Hi-Res DAC.
