About the Project

Why we've built the AP200: Audio that comes from portable devices tend to not sound great. At Hidizs, we’re trying to change this by designing our own portable music player that enhances the music listening experience. We believe that no one should ever compromise on sound quality.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    "high fidelity sound from every music device"

  • Reality:

    Hidizs has successfully entered into the high fidelity market, previously, with the AP100. This existing ability is now being integrated into a touch screen capable body with upgraded internals.

Something To Think About

Although the quality of the HIDIZS series and other similar products can produce high fidelity music with little loss, the question an end user must ask themselves before backing is if you will notice the difference and if you need the difference. Audiophile communities will potentially appreciate the build and quality of the AP200.

  • Claim:

    One-piece CNC body

  • Reality:

    Stylishly designed to be a solid device with limited amount of moving parts is possible.

  • Claim:

    Over 10 Hours Playing Time

  • Reality:

    The battery life adds up with the size of the battery, please keep in mind that play time will always vary for different elements of use, with any device.

  • Claim:

    High Resolution Formats Supported

  • Reality:

    The AP200 is not claiming to handle every single hi-res lossless formats, but it does allow for the ability to handle the most common.

  • Claim:

    A Highly Versatile Player with Simple Interface

  • Reality:

    The AP200 can function as a direct player or an "amp" from other devices that is connected to.

Bottom Line

The HIDIZS AP200 is following the heels of a successful product in the AP100. The AP200 takes the proven quality of the previous product and integrates improved internals as well as a solid build. The touchscreen and bluetooth are additional features that enable the AP200 to have a high possibility of success. Keep in mind that high fidelity music is typically for those who are true audiophiles, so be cognizant of the reality of adding a device to carry around.
