Headphone amplifiers are simply small dedicated power amps specially designed to drive the miniature speakers inside headphones. A great headphone system can deliver sound quality comparable to an audiophile home stereo system for a fraction of the cost!
Chances are the first time you hear a high-quality headphone system with an excellent source, you'll be taken aback by the superbly detailed audio performance. With top headphones, musical resolution and dynamics can actually surpass big speakers thanks to the immersiveness of the listening experience and the very low distortion that results from powering the small drivers inside good headphones. Our HeadRoom headphone amplifiers
use the best high-quality parts and electronics we can find to deliver robust clean power and volume, along with faster dynamics, a clearer tone and a more spacious, dimensional sound. Read more about the benefits of a headphone amp
NOTE: While a few high-end headphones absolutely require a headphone amp to be driven properly, most standard headphones will benefit to some degree from a headphone amp (especially when used from a portable device), but it is not typically needed.
