HIBy R8 II is a new flagship player with a 16-channel DAC, operating in class A and AB.


Darwin-MPA Architecture
At the heart of the R8 II’s sonic superiority is the revolutionary Darwin-MPA architecture. This multi-phase PWM array coupled with a 16-way current-mode DAC transforms your listening experience into a portable concert hall. Two Class A/AB amplification circuits provide flexibility – switch between Class A for finer sound or Class AB for longer battery life, satisfying your different sound preferences.

Turbo Unleashed Mode
Turn on the R8 II’s Turbo mode to increase power reserves by 25% and take your audio experience to new heights. This feature enhances voltage fluctuations, maximum volume, and overall performance. Featuring femtosecond precision crystal oscillators and flagship-grade components, the R8 II delivers an audio journey of exquisite detail and clarity.


Elegant Design
Immerse yourself in the sophisticated design of HiBy R8 II: the double curved body redefines elegance. Made from surgical grade stainless steel, these curves not only create a visually stunning device, but also provide a comfortable and ergonomic grip. The Alcantara back panel, made in Italy, adds a touch of sophistication and elegance, setting a new standard in industrial design.

Alcantara: Breaking Material Barriers
Breaking away from convention, the R8 II boldly combines materials to create a unique tactile experience. The Bayer UE95’s protective TPU shell, complemented by Alcantara to match the back of the device, creates a unique combination of durability and soft touch. Alcantara’s timeless combination of high strength and gentle tactility results in a protective shell that is not only visually appealing, but also highly functional.

Premium Hardware
Experience the superior sound of the R8 II with best-in-class components including 4 Elna tubular audio capacitors and 28 high-density tantalum capacitors. Dual independent head amplifier circuits using ADA4625-2 ICs and transistors provide Class A and Class AB operation. Turbo mode with increased power reserves delivers immersive and precise sound.
Featuring a 5.9-inch 1080p display, dual audio ports, dual-band 2.4/5GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and PD2.0 fast charging, the R8 II offers a comprehensive and advanced audio experience for audiophiles. The R8 II seamlessly combines cutting-edge hardware with convenient HiByOS. The device runs Android 12 OS and supports unlimited apps, creating an all-in-one platform with limitless possibilities.
