iPod and iPhone users beware, a new kid by the name of HiFiMAN HM-901 is on the block and it plans on stealing all of the spotlight. A high-end portable music player, the HiFiMAN HM-901 retails for an astonishing $999. Granted, it is chockfull of goodies, which hopes to justify the exorbitant price.

Forgoing the use of a fixed hardrive, the HiFiMAN HM-901 plays music straight from SD cards. This allows people to save uncompressed and lossless files without worrying about running out of space. Although this is a great feature, it surely isn't the shining one.

Unlike iPods, the HiFiMAN HM-901 can be tailored to the output of different phones as well as docks. This allows people to change the quality of sound to suit their needs.
