Unmatched advice and support

Always happy to help

Please note the HiBy R2 GEN II does not have user accessible storage, and requires a MicroSD card for music storage (sold seperately). 

HiBy R2 GEN II only supports Tidal and Qobuz streaming services via an active WiFi connection. Due to Tidal limitations, users must re-login to Tidal every 24 hours. Offline music download is not supported.

Due to the compact / low power nature of the R2, Bluetooth connectivity may not be stable with all devices. If connecting to Bluetooth headphones is the primary use case, please contact us for a recommendation.
