Notify me when this product is available:

iFi Audio Zen Dac V2 is a compact, desktop usb dac and balanced headphone amp. New V2 version has an upgraded XMOS USB interface, is now better with MQA files now that it is a full decoder.

Improve the sound from your computer or phone, via the usb input, out to your headphones. iFi Zen Dac V2 takes a digital signal via usb input and has 2 line outs on the rear panel - rca and 4.4mm balanced; it also has 2 headphone outs on the front - 6.5mm and 4.4mm balanced.

Perfect with Sennheiser HD660s, which includes a 4.4mm balanced cable and the Audio Technica MSR7b. USB powered, optional 5v power supply in our accessory section. 

For even better headphone performance, add the optional, matching iFi ZEN CAN headphone amp - makes a perfect high performance stack (shown in last photo)

Whathifi: 5 Stars: Compare the iFi with price rivals and it’s clearly up there with the best when it comes to sound quality. But it also offers a degree of versatility that those rivals don’t. If you’re looking for a well-built, budget desktop DAC, this iFi should be top of your list.

Techradar.com: 4.5 / 5: The iFi Zen DAC is an excellent DAC and amp for the price... sound from the iFi Zen DAC is excellent, providing enough power for power-hungry headphones like the HD600 and DT1990Pro that we used to test... if you’re looking to squeeze out a few extra drops of performance, the optional iFi power supply is worth purchasing.

Great starter DAC/Amp combo

Currently have this paired with my Sennheiser HD560s and it has been a great pairing! Love the simplicity of this unit as well as the build quality. Sound is clear and the TruBass functionality is great for adding some bass to my HD560s without it being overwhelming. Totally recommend this to anyone looking for an entry level way of getting into this hobby.

Great sound at a great price

I bought this to drive some small studio monitors from my iMac. The sound is a huge improvement over external powered speakers. Lovely clarity and a nice sound stage. I really love the analog volume control. Simple to set up - wonderful sound. I couldn’t be happier.

Extremely satisfied

This is my first dac/amp combo running off of a usb port and what a treat it is to listen to. Prior to this I had a very cheap headphone amp that was wired up to my computers headphone jack output and that was extremely noisy. This ifi Zen dac v2 is completely silent no matter were I place the volume dial. Im running the unit with usb power only and it has more than enough power to run my Audeze LCD 1 headphones or my Audio-Technica M50X phones as well. The build quality on this dac is fantastic and I highly recommend it to anybody. The headphone bar was super to deal with and had my dac in the mail the same day and packaged very well, I will definitely be dealing with them again for future purchases.

Better then I thought!

When the Zen Dac first came out, I avoided it. I heard the reviews and I resisted because I thought it wouldn’t work for me and probably wouldn’t sound as good as they said. After being very disappointed with an amp/dac I had, I decided to try the Zen Dac. I was wrong - this Dac is great! Since it is a balanced amp I ordered a 4.4 cable to see if it got any better - it DID. Such an improvement over my old Dac and a very noticeable improvement with the balanced cable. Not just louder, but clearly more driven in all ranges. This is especially true with my HD650’s. They sound better than they ever did. The Truebass feature is also as advertised. Not just a bass boost that pushes everything else aside, it gives more power to the bass without sacrificing detail in the mid and high range. I regret not getting the Zen Dac sooner. Also, once again great service from Headphone bar! Always my preferred stop for audio products.

Same as my review of the hip dac, better than 200$!

Loved my hip dac so much I bought this specifically for my Sennheiser HD58X but for a static setup at home. Get full reviews on Youtube. It's everything I hoped for and more. One tiny hiccup, the 2 metallic buttons next to the volume knob are a little loose... Couldn't be so perfect! :)
