Deezer HiFi is a high fidelity audio service available that uses Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) to deliver the best possible listening experience. Sounds amazing, right?
What you need to use Deezer HiFi
To enjoy FLAC streaming, you need a FLAC-supported device, plus an adequate broadband internet connection. If you are using Deezer without a FLAC-supported device, you’ll only be able to experience Premium+ audio quality (320 kbps).

Frequently asked questions
I already have a Deezer Premium+ account. Do I need to create a second account for Deezer HiFi?
No, you can just upgrade your existing account to Deezer HiFi by heading to our Deezer HiFi page here.
All your playlists, albums and downloaded content will still be available after you upgrade.
What's the difference between Premium+ and HiFi?
Deezer Premium+ allows you to listen to unlimited music without ads or interruptions, as well as downloading music.
Deezer HiFi has all the benefits of a Premium+ subscription, plus allowing you to listen to your music in exceptional FLAC quality when using a supported device.

HiFi provides you with a single profile, the same as Premium+. If you want multiple Deezer profiles, check out Deezer Family. At this time, it is not possible to have multiple HiFi accounts.
