Making New Waves

Headfonics

"This is an exciting year for entry-level DAPs, and the HiBy R2 has done a great job to blur the line between entry and mid-tier DAPs. It is stylish, compact, balanced in sound and performance, and doesn’t harm any fiscal kidneys. This will now be my entry-level DAP recommendation to anyone who asks." Click the full review here.

Twister6

"Hiby did pick the display with the most practical size/performance ratio, small yet comfortable for touch screen operation. R2 is much smaller, making it the smallest and the cheapest DAP with Wifi and built-in streaming apps" Click the full review here.

Moonstar

"A decent sound quality, great battery life and many features like Two-way LDAC, USB DAC, MESB Parametric EQ, Voice Recorder, E-Book Reader, etc. and a fluid UI integrated into an Ultra-Portable device with a very robust all zin-alloy chassis." Click the full review here.

Zelda @Head-Fi

"At the retail price of $99 and still packs all the attractive features that none of its current rivals offers. Build quality is pretty solid with a new zinc alloy on the main chassis with glass panels on front and back sides." Click the full review here.

Not any better than FiiO M5!

Switched from FiiO M5, but this has Bluetooth connection issues though there are added features. Battery capacity is double that of FiiO but not any better in terms of backup. Audio quality is better in FiiO with the AKM DAC. Also the UI is poor integrated! I wish Hiby introduce a revised R2 soon as Shanling is doing with their players.

Hiby R2 DAP

This little pocket gem is of excellent build quality and features. It would have got a 5 star rating had the screen size been a bit larger or had a manual volume/menu control knob. The sound output is on par with most DAP's in its class and even couple of rungs higher. Overall a value buy for someone who is starting out their DAP journey!

Modern Compact Audio machine

Hiby R2 Delivers Neutral Warm Music, Bluetooth out put is good and Audio quality The best way to describe the sound out of the R2 would smooth and mellow. It has a bit more added warmth and weight on the lower frequencies, making it the less neutral, balanced and transparent of the bunch. But that also makes it quite enjoyable and fun to pair with a different set of headphones, without losing on the level of details. Touch response is not good, Battery Drains using Bluetooth. use it as a DAC.
THANKS TO AUDIO STORE FOR FASTER DELIVERY.AND GOOD PACKING.
