Video review from Wave Theory’s review of the HIFIMAN EF600, first published on September 7th, 2023:
"This is a strong unit...it has a very capable and powerful headphone amplifier in it....the DAC gives it a unique, energetic, lively, and engaging sound."
From Headfonia’s review of the HIFIMAN EF600, first published on August 16th, 2023:
"The Hifiman EF600 is a great addition to the vast world of desktop USB-DAC/AMPs. Sure, $799 remains a steep sum for many newcomers, but for this price I don’t think that you’ll get another desktop DAC/AMP as good as this one.
"Sound quality is superb, build quality is very good, I/O is excellent and the conception design makes it the perfect companion for every source you may own, even game consoles like the… PS5 (wink, wink). It’s not night and day compared to the EF400, but this new device remains a massive improvement on everything that made the previous model a recommended gear for me."

Headphone Guru’s video review of the HIFIMAN EF600, first published on June 23rd, 2023:
"The HIFIMAN AUDIVINA Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Studio Headphones and HIFIMAN EF600 R2R DAC & Headphone Amp are everything promised and more, the synergy between these two products is simply jaw-dropping and I can’t see myself listening to the AUDIVINA with anything other than the EF600."
