Hidizs was founded early in 2009, when pocket HiFi had just become a thing. At that time, they were pricey and badly made. Digital music sucked in those days, but people didn't really care. Tamson, the founder and the CEO of Hidizs, did care. He was an audiophile and fronted an underground rock band in college. After graduating, Tamson dedicated his life to making HiFi music players for lossless music. As an audiophile, it was a no-brainer; music should be heard as it was intended to be.
In order to produce better quality portable HiFi audio devices at an affordable price, Tamson brought together a group of audiophiles with extensive backgrounds in HiFi audio R&D. With a core staff of over 40 audio-obsessed professionals and decades of combined experience, Hidizs has been able to consistently produce the highest quality portable digital audio players (DAPs), earphones, USB DACs, etc.
The Hidizs R&D team got to work in Oct 2012, after 3 years of intensive research into the global HiFi audio market. Hidizs’ first pocket HiFi audio player - AP100 - was officially launched at CES, the most influential tech event in the world, in Jan 2014. 3 years later, the first android Hi-Fi music player by Hidizs, AP200, was launched on Kickstarter, having since raised $280,000 with the support of 943 backers (all orders have been shipped!).
