You can stream music on pretty much any phone or tablet nowadays. However, the audio quality delivered by Spotify and Apple Music isn’t good enough to please true audiophiles. Thanks to a high-end chip, the AP80 Portable Music Player offers much more satisfying sound via headphones or a speaker. You can get it now for $125.10 at the XDA Developers Depot.
Unlike your smartphone, the AP80 has been designed specifically for music. The device runs on HiBy 3.0 OS, a variant of Linux that offers lossless playback and great audio features. Sounds are processed by a high-end chip from ESS, which delivers a SNR of up to 126dB and THD+N down to -113dB.
If all of those specs went over your head, it basically makes your music audio sound significantly clearer than what you’re used to.
You can connect the AP80 to headphones and speakers via Bluetooth or using the 3.5 jack. The music player also has aptX technology for better wireless sound, while Mage Sound 8-Ball Tuning provides a custom mix.
Measuring just 2.3 inches tall, the AP80 is genuinely small enough to take anywhere. You get 15 hours of playback on a full charge, and the memory can be expanded up to 1TB.
Normally priced at $139, this pocket music player is now only $125.10 with this deal.
