While I wouldn’t exactly consider myself a super high end audiophile, I admit that I certainly enjoy a superior sound. Before CES, I hadn’t heard of HiFiMan. And for good reason, at $800 and the size of an old Sony Walkman cassette player means this isn’t going to be mass market. However, for those with a choosy ear, the HiFiMan HM-801 is worth a solid look.

The main innards include Burr-Brown PCM1704 DAC’s, OP627 chips, direct connection to amps via line out.

The most interesting design feature however is the customizable GanQBay, removable and customizable headphone amp motherboard. Don’t like the low-end of a particular amp? Fine. Easily swap it out via the easy access panel on the back.

The final nugget for now is the price: $800. Expensive? Yes. But for those who crave the utmost in sound quality and like to be mobile, money means nothing. Stay tuned for more…
