Hi-Fi Sound Anywhere, AK HC3

Astell&Kern offers a Hi-Fi USB DAC cable product range for a true Hi-Fi experience on the go.

Designed to minimise noise with the ultra-high sound quality of integrated Hi-Fi grade DACs, it addresses the music lovers’ desire for a true Hi-Fi experience when mobile. Not content with settling for the status quo, Astell&Kern has endeavored to enable our users to enjoy more features in Hi-Fi quality.

AK HC3 is the result of these efforts, and is designed to provide all the benefits of its predecessor, AK HC1 (PEE51), while enabling high-quality sound across various settings.

AK HC3 features the microphone input enables even more entertainment and voice features. The dual-shielded cable and the proprietary Android app will help users experience Hi-Fi effortlessly and with no compromises.

DESIGN

AK HC3 is super light with a full aluminum housing, and weighs only 20g.

The compact and lightweight body embodies Astell&Kern’s design philosophy, emphasizing our fundamental ethos toward the music. The design inherits the “light and shadow” concept, which is the identity of Astell&Kern: all of the four sharp sides centered around the traversing centre-line are positioned proportionally and converge on a single point, making them uniquely reflective and iridescent.

The high-quality finish hides everything except for design factors such as the contours and the logo, preventing any visual distractions for a more immersive music experience.
