  • Summary: This is a fairly large, heavy headphone amp that has no problem in driving two LCD-2s at the same time. The volume knob is smooth and satisfying to use, but I've found the amp suffers from hissing noise when touching the knob if not connected to a grounded outlet. So keep that in mind.
  • Pros: Solid build. Smooth sound. Lots of power. Two headphones outs. DAC section included.
  • Cons: A tad large. Some may find it lacks bite.

  • Summary: This is a warm sounding amp and really smooth with enough power to drive 2 headphones simultaneously. As Lan647 was saying that it could drive 2 high end headphones without a problem, I can drive my beyerdynamic t1 & the sennheiser hd800 with ease at the same time.
  • Pros: Warm sounding, 2-headphones output, that are not impedance limited, good value
  • Cons: Pretty big, can get somewhat warm, the DAC inside is not the best one I've tried.

  • Excerpt: Om man lyssnar mycket i hörlurar kan man tjäna mycket på att skaffa en bättre hörlursförstärkare. Har man en kostsam hörlur är det ett måste.

  • Summary: Med Musical Fidelity M1 HPA får man endelig udnyttet potentialet i high-end hovedtelefoner. Den spiller klokkerent og er så neutral og ufarvet i klangen, som man kan forlange. Effekten er høj nok til at drive det meste og med variabel lydudgang kan man bruge den som forforstærker også.
  • Cons: Intet

  • Summary: Hvis man lytter mye med hodetelefoner, kan man ha mye igjen for å anskaffe en bedre hodetelefonforsterker. Bruker man dyre hodetelefoner, er det et must.

  • Summary: ...любая модель, будь это портативные «затычки», дотошные в среднем диапазоне студийные AK.G К270 с малой чувствительностью или напористые Bowers & Wilkins Р5, усилитель выжмет из них все нюансы до последней капли.
