The HiFiMAN HM-601 Slim is simply a portable music player. But it's no ordinary portable music player. The HM-601 is designed for the discerning listener who wants the convenience of on-the-go music without sacrificing sound quality and optimal headphone performance.
Remarkable sound quality full of warmth and presence
The HM-601 sports an advanced dual 16-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter). This DAC ensures that your digital music files will be reproduced with rich, full sound. And unlike most portable devices, the HiFiMAN can play high-resolution audio file formats, such as FLAC, WAV, and Ogg Vorbis. So you don't have downconvert your uncompressed audio tracks just to get them to play on your portable.
Room to grow
High-resolution audio files take up a lot of memory — and the HM-601 is up to the challenge. In addition to having 8GB of built-in memory, the player also has an SD card slot. Take along as many 32GB SD cards as you want and never worry about filling up the player and limiting your playlist.
Listen with your best pair of headphones
It takes a pair of high-performance headphones to fully experience the rich, detailed sound the HiFiMAN's DAC delivers. That's why the HM-601 also features a built-in headphone amp. A typical player's headphone jack just doesn't provide enough power to properly drive demanding high-quality headphones. The HM-601#39;s powerful headphone amp ensures that your headphones have the juice they need to sound their best.
Simple navigation and display
The HM-601's navigation screen has a no-nonsense, stripped-down retro look. The screen only displays text — no video, no graphics, not even album art. But if you're just there for the music, the HM-601 provides the navigation you need. You can sort your music by album or artist, and organize your music into playlist folders.
You can also adjust the EQ settings, making minor (or major) adjustments as you choose. A selectable high or low gain switch lets you adjust the amp's output to match the sensitivity of your headphones. And the volume control is an analog dial so you can play your music exactly as loud or soft as you want. Now that's old school.
