Music player for Audiophiles

Steve, Amazon
5 May 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent player with plenty of power to drive full sized headphones. It will drive my HE560 planer magnetic headphones to the point of hearing damage. Overall, the sound rivals my home listening setup costing 5x more.

Hifiman HM-901...sounds fantastic...operates poorly

12 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a sad day...as I decided to return the Hifiman HM-901. This is a fantastic sounding player but an absolute mess to operate. I have had a FIIO X3 for about two years and I love that player for the money. The sound quality is very good but I was looking for something better.

Outstanding sound, poor firmware

Peter L. Wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: The Hifiman 901 is probably the best sounding portable player. A bit clunky and retro looking, yes, but a well-built and neat package that looks and feels like you would expect at this price. Musically this is a superior product.

Buggy but worth it... sort of!

GUY ROULEAU "G. Rouleau", Amazon

  • Summary: ONE VERY IMPORTANT PROVISO: No doubt that everyone is raving about the HM-901 and with good cause... HOWEVER,I received mine in January and waited until now to write this review because I'd read and heard of firmware-related problems dramatically impacting the HM-901's performance.

  • Summary: This device is everything I expected. I have had an 802 for three years or more and have been very pleased with it. This is a worthy successor.

Clarity

Trey, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, is the first word that came to mind when I started listen to music on this device. If you do the research you will know exactly what the 901 brings to the table when it comes to portable music players.

HiFiMan HM-901 is a winner

Thomas E. Phillips "tphillips63", Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Hi-Fi on the go. This sounds so great I could hardly believe it. I upgraded to the balanced AMP card for use with my Momentum, HD-650 and Songbirds all balanced. Very pleased and if you are into portable Hi-Fi you will not regret this system. You do not need a separate amp with this product.

Look no further, this truly is the best music device out there!

J. Lerner "Ny Ranger fan", Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Top of the line Mp3 player. Truly for people who want an out of this world Mp3 player. It plays true HD audio. Only issue is the high resloution files are not cheap. But they are worth it. The sound coming out of this machine is the best Ive ever heard.

Like listening to a hi-end home stereo system! Even better.

Davy "Davy", Amazon

  • Summary: Two weeks ago I received my HM 901. It came with the standard amp. I ordered the balanced amp from Hifiman about a week ago. Since then I have been doing a comparison between the standard (stock) amp and the balanced amp.
