Just speculation from me at this point, my only DAPS have been the hm601 and hm801 so I lie the Hifiman sound lol, although I really do not like the design an asthetics of the new models 
Thks pal for the comments. Ya I think I still hold on to the 801 for time being.

DAC: Dual Wolfson WM8740

Amp Section: OPA627 based

Battery: 16.8v Lithium battery pack

 

Hm801

DAC Chip: Burr-Brown PCM1704U-K (for Player, Coaxial and USB)

Op-Amp: OPA627

14.8 volt Lithium Polymer Battery Bay

The HM-801 uses DUAL PCM-1704U DAC

Also, some HM-801 were fitted with a slightly better grade and more expensive PCM-1704U-K DAC in order to keep the HM-801 production during shortages of the regular PCM-1704U.

 

The HM-801 comes factory with regular mini-jack and the option of upgrading to balanced (btw well worth the upgrade IMO) while the HM-802 comes factory balanced.

On this note, I am able to play all my non balanced headphones straight into my HM-801 balanced mini-jack without the need of an adaptor (not sure if it applies to the HM-802 but I don't see why not). However, connecting balanced headphones into a non balanced player (such as iphone...) will only play on one cannel unless I use a balanced to non balanced cable adaptor.

Probably because it is warmer and more forgiving than the 901. It's a very musical DAP. smily_headphones1.gif

Indeed! I am currently burning in my new Toxic Cables Black Widow and Fitear MH334 on the 802: aural heaven! smily_headphones1.gif

On the HM901 appreciation thread, everyone has been raving about the new standard card named the Classic card because it is supposed to have been tuned to sound like the 801.

When I ordered the 802 with standard card, it came with the classic card. Very nice. Here's the photo of the classic card.

I am frankly quite surprised that the HM802 is still relatively unknown because it does have such a musical and organic sig. Guess everyone is still bowled over the astonishing transparency of the HM 901. smily_headphones1.gif

Hehe Kiats, its because hm901 owners will not agree to carry a hm901 looking thing for 0.01dB less of performance. LoL
by the way, does the HM802 have better battery life?

I happily carry both. smily_headphones1.gif yes, the battery is better. Not precisely measured it, but on the Classic card, I'd give it about 9-10 hours.

Oops! I meant battery life of the 802 is better

Anyone can comments on the classic card on 802 vs classic card on 901. Thanks first

@Kiats, how is the sound sig of the HM-801 vs the DX50? Just asking as I'm thinking more of purchasing the HM-801 and wanting something to compare it to.

Thanks,Andy
