Reviews and user comments

 

HeadPie

"The sound quality is wonderful. One gets lost in the music rather than the gear. HiFi-Skyn is a must for any idevice-carrying music lover looking for a simple solution to acquire all the benefits of gorgeous playback on the go. Comparing the sound to the more `high end` read: pricy DAPs, the combination of great sound and the ease of Apple's UI makes this a no brainer."

"A lovely, clear sounding, uncoloured, serious bit of audio kit. It sounds wonderful and is exactly what I wanted it to sound like. It seems very powerful and I got the promised 10 hours battery life. It is a product I am going to enjoy a lot…"

"This thing sounds great! I mean how much power and quality of sound put into such a small device is an engineering feat! CEntrance is the first company to attempt to do this, and at a reasonable price. GOOD JOB Centrance!"

"Well I’ve been using the Skyn for a few weeks now and must say I am very impressed with the unit. As a portable DAC and HP amp it is surpurb. The sound is incredibly detailed and you pick up the most subtle details in the music with a wide soundstage. Well done, CEntrance :)"

"Spent a few weeks listening to the device. It’s astonishing! I compared with HiFi-M8, and it seems to out perform it! … I couldn’t be happier with the performance. The HiFi-Skyn sounds incredible and I can safely say that this is one of the most incredible devices out there."
