Yes, is the first word that came to mind when I started listen to music on this device. If you do the research you will know exactly what the 901 brings to the table when it comes to portable music players. Apple's customer service is the best when it comes to your average consumer, but I got tired of my headphone jacks on my ipods and iphones going out on me (one earphone would play and the other would not). I would get a re-manufactured device as Apple like to call it and a month or two later same thing, over and over and over etc.....

Loyalty can only go so far so I had to look else where and just cut my loses. This device is not the smallest so make sure to check the out specifications for this devices size. What made me purchases the 901 is the two dedicated processors (one for each channel) and Hifiman's reputation for amazing Amps and headphones. You are also able to purchases other amplifier cards for headphones that need up to 4 Volts per channel (more amplifier cards will be available in the future). There was a device prior to this called the 801, and from everything I've read that device had more than it's fair share of issues.

The 901 is not the most attractive portable music player on the market, but the sound that comes out is flawless. I'm aware this device and company have had numerous software issues in the past so hopefully the issues stay in the past. If you purchases the 901 you will need to go to Hifiman's website and download firmware updates. It does not connect to the internet, it does not play movies, this device is not an entertainment hub. The 901 is a high quality music player that produces amazing sound. Unfortunately this is not small enough to take to the gym and workout with (my opinion).

ONE VERY IMPORTANT PROVISO: No doubt that everyone is raving about the HM-901 and with good cause... HOWEVER,I received mine in January and waited until now to write this review because I'd read and heard of firmware-related problems dramatically impacting the HM-901's performance. As it turns out, this proved quite true in my case. After four months of intensive use, whereupon I added and deleted numerous MP3,FLAC and APE files, the player simply ceased to work. I'd deleted a 600mb+ MP3 file and replaced it by another similar-sized one when, lo and behold: the HM-901 refused to read and play any music files and, after a short while, refused to boot up. I was running firmware version 1.82 at the time. I tried upgrading the firmware to the new 1.85 version following explicit instructions but that did't work either. I even purchased a brand new SDXC card for the attempted 'revival process' but to no avail.
THE REDEEMING FACTOR: I phoned up customer service. Those that answered were extremely courteous and tried to get me to revive my defunct unit. Resurrection, however, was not in the cards. The support personnel then, and without further haggling, told me to send back the defective player -- I was forwarded a brand new replacement unit, loaded with the updated 1.85 firmware, and I'm now back in business. Some might have been discouraged by this setback but the player is that good-sounding that I was willing to stick with it.
WHY AM I GIVING 3 STARS? It's still too early in the game to tell whether or not my replacement unit will cut it. I prefer playing it safe; I will report back to you later on performance and possibly change my 3-star rating.
NO MATTER HOW YOU CUT, THOUGH: Three stars is the most that the practice of slapping buggy firmware into a $1,000+ high end audio player deserves.

Two weeks ago I received my HM 901. It came with the standard amp. I ordered the balanced amp from Hifiman about a week ago. Since then I have been doing a comparison between the standard (stock) amp and the balanced amp.

I have also been switching back and forth between the hi -res and the classic switch. The headphones I'm using are the Shure 1840, Grado 500, Sennheiser HD600 and my Sennheiser HD650.

I owned and sold my HM801 so I know the difference in performance between the two. I also owned the HM601 but will not use this to compare either since it is not in the same league.
Simply put the HM901 is better then the HM801. I thought the HM801 would be hard to beat. I also thought the HM901 with the saber dacs might sound drier and not as analog as the HM801. It does not.
My 4 pin balanced 3.5 mini cable is from Charleston Cable company. Manufactured here in the good old USA. They are beautifully made, and the sound quality is exceptional. I can honestly say this having used various major brand cables on my HD600 and HD650. That said I highly recommend the Charleston/Audience cable. He is a great guy to deal with and very customer service oriented. Not to mention the quality of this cable. The cable he uses is designed and manufactured by Audience. This is simply my opinion. I have nothing to do with this company. Do a search for additional information.
My experience in music professionally has been a long one. I have been fortunate enough to have owned and tried many hi-end stereo products.So sound quality is very important to me.

I won't go in to a long detailed description in terms of the sound quality the HM901 produces. There will be plenty of professional reviews coming out soon.
