Description du produit
HiFiMAN Express brings the DAC to the masses! HiFiMAN Express have come up with this ridiculously inexpensive upgrade that will greatly improve the sound of headphones and desktop speakers. The HiFiMan Express HM-101 portable USB DAC is smaller than an old-school cigarette lighter. But it delivers big benefits to your digital music files. Features USB DAC Texas Instrument PCM2702 16-bit 48 kHz chipset High-quality headphone stage Line-out jack for powered speakers USB-powered (no AC or batteries needed) Frequency Response: 20 to 20k Hz THD: 0.07% S/N: 96 dB Stereo Crosstalk: 78 dB Headphone Amplifier Output:62 mw at 36 Ohm 26 mw at 150 Ohm Dimension: 36 x 60.5 x 13.8 mm Details One of Fang Bian's friend asked him last year Why don't you build some consumer grade products with Hi-Fi elements? He was onto something as HiFiMAN do have the ability to build consumer grade products such as headphones sound card players as cheap as those sold in walmart but sound a lot better. So HIFIMAN EXPRESS was registered as a trademark and designed several new products. The HM-101 portable USB DAC is the first one several new products will be coming soon. They will keep the HIFIMAN trademark for the Hi-Fi market in the future. The HM-101 creates a superb soundstage depth and ambiance that excels and it has a real and three dimensional quality which leads to a fantastic soundstage performance. The sound is remarkably analog with nice clear treble although the bass isn't it's stronest point it doesn't make the bass muddy or boomy giving a nice analog sound signature. The HM-101 is ideal if you don't mind a slightly less punchy bass section in return for an super-awesome soundstage. For the price it's hard to pull many negatives as it really is ridiculous value! The beauty in the HM-101 is in the simplicity of the set up the volume control-less operation (done on the computer) and the superb soundstage performance. After all the HM-101 not intended to be an ultimate USB DAC/Amp solut.

So why the 3 stars? well the headphone jack is noisy, whatever amp they used they should have spent a couple extra cents. Luckily the line out port is quiet and the DAC has a nice sound that I find pleasing, and is plenty loud on my headphones. I havent quite put my finger on it yet but there seems to be some coloration in the tunes...maybe I'm just getting old and ears are giving out.
All in all it's a keeper and a pretty good deal for the price, it really will work well for what I need it for. It sounds fantastic paired with my laptop and pushing tunes through my Rotel to my second fav speakers, and makes the headphones I have sound a little better. But in this price bracket there are USB cards with digital outputs plus the headphone jack, so your $20 buds sound better and you could offload the signal to a better DAC if you wanted. So I guess just pick what you need, it sounds great with all the headphones I have and even hooked up to a pretty nice rig for stereo, if you need a digital out or if your cans are hard to drive you might want to look elsewhere So it might deserve another star for sounding pretty good but you decide I guess. I'm not bashing it by any means.
Some of the vibrant audio must be attributed to the fact there is a headphone amplifier, I told myself. I have a Fiio Headphone amp, so I plugged it in and did some A/B testing vs. the HiFiMan, and whatever they have inside the Hifiman box is now my preferred listening method. I am anxious to pair the Hifiman up with some nice powered speakers to see how much of this difference disappears in full room audio vs. headphones.
One thing that kept me from giving the product 5 stars is the slight bit of interference you hear during silence at beginning, during, or at the end of a particular track. This may be attributable to interference from the computer. I am going to use a longer length adapter cord to separate the little box from the computer a farther distance. With or without this distortion, I am sold on the Hifiman, and it being my first step into the world of DACS, etc. I feel it won't be long until I sink money into a more substantial product.
My testing was with iTunes format files downloaded directly and tracks ripped from CDs using iTunes, both at 256kbps. Other reviews talk of the user playing lossless files, and filetypes that are foreign to me. I'm just an average Joe who enjoys good sounding audio, and know enough to spot the differences. Black Eyed Peas, Shania Twain, Pink Floyd, and George Clinton tracks were exclusively used for testing. In all tracks subjected to the A/B comparison, I was able to discern a notable improvement in fidelity, vibrance, and the ability to follow individual instruments whether it be drums, bass, brass,or background vocals. Like I said above, things appeared on these tracks that I never knew were there, whether it be a background vocal hook, the drummer's use of a cowbell, whatever.
I am happy with this purchase, and think most of you out there would be also.
Connected to my laptop and into a 110 watt/channel amp into floor standing speakers (Pioneer Elite Bi-amped into Dali Ikon II) with volume high enough to rock a large living room, the HM -101 is excellent. Yes, much better than just connecting to the stock soundcard in either my laptop or my desktop PC playing just average music downloaded from the net. I hear a much wider soundstage using the HM-101 along with better, more defined midrange separating the midrange away from the bass. While a little light on the bass, the HM-101 produces a cleaner sound than the stock soundcards (Desktop or laptop) alone.
Unfortunately the HM-101 is sensitive to interference from cell phones, and computers (incl my HP laptop). Even with a longer USB (sheilded) cable, the sound was affected by positioning (both the cable and the unit itself). Touching the unit causes sound anomalies. Biggest flaw: The noise floor is raised substantially over the stock soundcards. What do I mean by this? If you remember the hiss you heard from an inexpensive cassette back in the day (ie, tape hiss) get ready for a blast from the past. Really, the sound is almost analog in it's sound, even a bit warmer than one would expect. When paired with a laptop and headphones I hear not only hiss at low volume, but a good deal of very light, yet unmistakable fluctuating noise with occasional "clicks", and a constant sound not unlike "static" on an AM radio (crackle of a vinyl record?) which is much more annoying than the hiss. but only at low volume or in quiet passages in the music being played. Yes, - really annoying. This noise is substantially reduced by plugging into the line out (vs the headphone jack). Of course, the amplification is seriously reduced, but so is the noise. From the line out side one might plug into an amp like the Fiio E5.
Why three stars? inexpensive, small, simple operation and detailed w a good soundstage if played through an amp and speakers at a moderately loud volume earn it an extra star. However I purchased this for use with fairly revealing earbuds and headphones that needed a bit of amplification. I suspect that the HM-101 would do much better with higher ohm headphones, like Audio-Technica's ATH-M40FS that have an impedance of 60 ohms. An open back headphone might even help mask the hiss, but in any case the M40 at 60 ohms should require enough increased amplification in achieving the same volume, (over say, a more common 32 ohm headphone) to produce the desired sound (music?) level high enough from the noise floor to make the hiss unnoticeable. It's likely that the HM-101 doesn't have enough power to properly drive a 100+ ohm headphone. You may wish to weigh this, an addl amp between the HM-101 and the headphone would amplify the noise as well at low volume unless kept to the line out (so the HM-101 would not also pre-amp. (I would consider the ATH-M50s/LE also but they are only 38 ohm and might not provide enough spread from the noise floor.) Before I gave away my Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! a year ago I was pleased with it and would also consider the ASUS Xonar U3.
I'll be gifting the HM-101 at Christmas to a less discriminating listener with the recommendation to use with a receiver and speakers. ;) I might even buy another eventually, but only use the line out w a separate amp.
The Fiio E5 is at a good price point and sports two EQ profiles, flat and a bass boost which the HM-101 seems to need.
