Right off, we want to thank all our HeadRoom Audio Standard Amp pre-order customers and early adopters for making the upcoming release of our first new HeadRoom product in a decade such a resounding triumph.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of our music-loving HeadRoom Audio hearts.

We could not have come this far without all of you.

We are very happy to report that the new Standard Amp parts have begun to arrive en masse, our circuit boards have been tested and QC'd, and the first initial run of chassis are being readied for production.

We remain on time and on schedule for a late October 2016 shipment as promised.

The only tiny wrinkle slowing us down by a few business days is actually a bit of good news. 


Due to the success of the pre-order campaign - and in response to our pre-order customer feedback - we have been able to get better pricing on the new Standard Amp chassis panels featuring an improved, sleeker machined aluminum look and a bolder, cleaner faceplate. We think the sweet new panel designs are well worth the wait of an additional few business days.

Of course, all amplifier internals remain the same hot-rodded topology we originally engineered for the new HeadRoom Audio Standard Amp, so nothing has changed on the inside (so far!).

Again, thank you to all our wonderful HeadRoom Audio supporters - we promise this little headphone rig will blow away any other headphone amp of this size and price or your money back.

And if you haven't ordered one yet, we certainly welcome your Standard Amp order to be placed now right here on our website. It's the best place to buy HeadRoom Audio products anywhere.

Please be assured your hard-earned cash will not only get you some truly supernal headphone listening, but you will also directly support our engineering, research and production of new HeadRoom Audio products into 2017 and beyond - some of which are in the final stages now.

THANK YOU! MAHALO! MUCHAS GRACIAS! DOMO ARIGATO! GRAZIE! CHEERS! MERCI BEAUCOUP! DANKE! OBRIGADO! ASANTE!

Hi Travis, Many thanks for your support and kind words! We believe the new Standard Amp is significantly superior to our old HeadRoom Micro Amp in detail resolution, dynamics and overall musicality. And, yep, the exact same audio team responsible for the original Micro Amp design and internal topology engineering is behind the new HeadRoom Audio Standard Amp – so we really built it right! :)

I’d love to try this but i’m too obsessed with your Headroom Micro Amp. Maybe it will blow up and I can get this someday.
The Micro was one of the few amps i’ve ever had that worked equally well with every headphone i’ve tried. I’m sure this will too.

PS I’m glad you’re back to making amps. Maybe the genius behind the Micro helped with this too.

Hi Allen,
Many thanks for your support and your question! … Nope, you do not necessarily need a DAC to use the HeadRoom Audio Standard headphone amp. If your audio source is a computer, then perhaps a DAC could be helpful in some instances. But we have found the internal ‘built-in’ DACs in new player devices and computers have improved dramatically in recent years.

Can’t wait! Question though, will I need a dac with this unit?
