About the Product
It combines the form factor of the DX200 with the amp card system of the DX200 and the Mango software player first seen on the DX80 and later matured on the DX200. Instead of the more expensive high-end dual ES9028PRO DAC chipset, iBasso has worked-in a cheaper dual AK4490EQ implementation to get within budget.
HiBy R6 Pro The Android 8.1 Hi-Fi Music Player A Big Leap of Audio Architecture with 4.4 Balance Output A sleek and easy-to-grab design on HiBy R6 Pro demonstrates the world-class craftsmanship with a Sharp 4.2′′ high resolution IPS screen with Corning Gorilla glass covering both sides.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
iBasso DX150
  • Build is solid. It sounds noticeably better than a phone as well.
  • The build quality is great, sound is absolutely fantastic. Just make sure you pair it with a good headphone.
  • The DX150 boasts some great specs and is a very nice audio player.
  • Speaking of the screen, the size of it is perfect.
  • The display is small for such a large player. It’s hard to watch the name of the song.
HiBy R6 Bluetooth MP3 Music Player with Hi-Res Audio
  • Excellent build quality, sound signature perfection, stylish design, nice display.
  • Sound quality, when it plays, is excellent, and the MSEB gives you a large amount of control of the sound.
  • Great sound quality, this is also the reason I bought it, and it can drive almost all of my headphones with enough power, and also great as an DAC connecting to AMP.
  • This is my first dap and so far I love it. The overall design is superb and the sound quality is breathtaking.
  • It's heavy with a solid feel of quality. More value for money when compared to brands like Astell & Kern.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
iBasso DX150
  • Great size for traveling. You can easily put it in your pocket.
  • Very compact player with excellent control buttons.
  • Weight and size are great for a morning run or the like.
  • It is larger than a phone, by a lot, I would say with included case about 4x the thickness of a Google Pixel.
  • Maybe some day they'll get the internal parts a bit smaller so that the overall device isn't so cumbersome.
HiBy R6 Bluetooth MP3 Music Player with Hi-Res Audio
  • Small and fits in the palm of your hand but gives incredible sound.
  • Small gadget with great quality, features, sound and fun, recommended!
  • We have an excellent touch screen, easy to use playlists, small size and superb build quality.
  • It's heavy, heavier than you expect base on its size. Sound is good!
  • It's small size may seem like a positive but for me its too small.

What customers say about "Features"
iBasso DX150
  • The software is very stable if not upgrade to Android 8.
  • The nice thing is though that all of the controls (volume, play, pause, etc) are on one side so while it is big, it's not uncomfortable to use one handed.
  • The amp modules can be swapped out and I love the fact that the amp doesn't take up screen space like it does on the Fiio devices.
  • The UI is pretty good here. Nice big panels that I can comfortably press rather than gently poke with the tip of my finger.
  • Also the Google Play Store app will not function on it.
HiBy R6 Bluetooth MP3 Music Player with Hi-Res Audio
  • The display screen quality and resolution are very good for a music player, and the user interface is snappy in responding.
  • The general aesthetics of the device is great - I don't think I would want a larger screen, the form factor makes a lot of sense. I don't have issues typing and the display is vibrant.
  • The player is built to last, very heavy, but solid. Sounds great with my professional studio headphones.
  • The buttons feel perfect, and the design choices are spot on. For the accessories, the cables feel very well made with a nice and tight webbed sleeve over the cables.
  • The sound was crystal clear but i could not determine in which connection was in LDAC, SBC, etc. because it does not display such info.

What customers say about "Power"
iBasso DX150
  • The battery life for me has been really good. Sometimes this thing doesn't turn off even though I've pressed off and then confirmed that I do in fact want to turn it off.
  • Charging is quick and the player holds a charge throughout the day.
  • The manufacturer does not lie about the battery life. This is enough for more than 10 hours.
  • The sound quality is good, but the battery life is not that good.
  • The device discharges quickly, which makes me very angry because I cannot enjoy it for a long time.
HiBy R6 Bluetooth MP3 Music Player with Hi-Res Audio
  • Battery life is about the 8 to 10 hours listed in the specs depending on the type of sound files and whether playing from locally stored songs or streaming service.
  • How Long does the battery last? I have not tested this yet. But it's pretty decent.
  • Battery life is more than adequate for my listening. I can get about a day and a half without WIFI or Bluetooth turned on.
  • Great player, long battery, sounds fantastic, has Bluetooth and wi-if and I bet will sound better when balanced cable comes for HD6xx.
  • The unit doesn’t auto shut off as far as I can tell so you have to remember to turn it off or the battery will drain.
