I don't hear itPosted by vidiont from Salt Lake City, UT on 2010-12-16

Recommend Product: No
Pros: Reduced noise in the audio
Cons: No dramatic difference...no difference at all
Using Sennheiser 545 Reference headphones and Sennheiser CX300-B earbuds, I compared audio directly from the headphone jack on my laptop to audio from the BitHead amp using the USB connection (figuring this would be the highest quality audio from the BitHead). I also tested audio from my iPod Classic with and without the amp.
I listened to .mp3, .flac and AAC encoded audio using "Also Sprach Zarathustra" from the "2001: A Space Odyssey" soundtrack, "Chemical Beats" from The Chemical Brothers "Singles 93-03" and "Stuck in C" from Jay Smar's "The Ballad of Glen Onoko", along with randomly sampling whatever caught my interest along the way.
There was some noise cleanup, especially apparent in the opening portion of Zarathustra, but nothing overwhelming. Other than that...nothing, nada, no difference to my ears.
I don't think the headphones are that bad, so it's either my ears or the BitHead. With the number of rave reviews by others about the dramatic improvement...I guess it's my ears. But I don't hear it. Wasted money for me.
