The Best Digital Audio Players (DAPs) Under £300

Are you in the market for a new DAP, but don’t want to stretch your budget? Maybe you’re iPod finally gave up the ghost, and you want to try something new around the same price point? Well, here are five great digital audio players under the £300 mark, as recommended by us here at Advanced MP3 Players!

iBasso DX80  DX80LARGEThe powerful iBasso DX80 is an awesome multi-functional lossless music device. Featuring dual SD card slots, optical and coax digital outputs as well as USB DAC capabilities, there’s a lot of features to love here, and it sounds great too.

Sony NW-A35


The successor to the wildly popular NW-A15 from a couple of years ago, this touch screen Hi-Res player from Sony has many of their premium audio features such as the DSEE HX upscaler built into a sleek, minimalist design that comes in a variety of colours.

FiiO X1ii


At just under £100, the FiiO X1ii is stacked full of features often reserved for much more expensive players, such as Hi-Res playback, expandable memory, Bluetooth 4.0 and an in-vehicle mode that switches the player on when you start your car engine. It even comes in a Rose Gold colour variant for the Apple fans!

Cayin N3


Another small but powerful player, the Cayin N3 features a memory expandable up to 256GB, Bluetooth 4.0, three distinct colour schemes and a USB DAC mode, all whilst weighing just less than 100g!

Cowon Plenue D


The smallest of Cowon’s acclaimed Plenue series of players, the Plenue D has a powerful performance capable of faithfully reproducing original studio sound anytime, anywhere. This Hi-Res player may not come with some of the bells and whistles that other players on this list do such as Bluetooth or USB DAC mode, but it does feature a simply gorgeous sound signature and a staggering 100-hour battery life.
