Most listeners have never heard headphones at their full potential. That's because the headphone jack on the front of most components outputs a severely compromised signal. This integral headphone amplifier is normally an afterthought considered unworthy of serious design effort or expense. After all, how many consumers make purchasing decisions based on the quality of the headphone amplifier?

Audiophiles wanting a better headphone listening experience can choose an aftermarket headphone amplifier. This device will accept a line-level signal and amplify it enough to drive your headphones.
High quality headphone amplifiers have a discrete output stage (made from separate transistors) rather than an operational amplifier chip, and are fed from power supplies designed with high-end techniques and circuits. They also incorporate audiophile quality volume controls.

Denon DA-10 (DA10) Headphone Amplifier
Denon DA-10 (DA10) Headphone Amplifier
DA-10 - Portable Headphone Amplifier with USB-DAC

Denon's DA-10 portable USB-DAC and headphone amplifier delivers sonic performance on par with premium audiophile separates, in a compact package equipped with a high capacity 3200 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, for hours of listening enjoyment, anywhere on-the-go.

With many portable devices, the internal headphone amplifier section is most often designed for low power consumption, in order to extend battery life. While that's fine when using ordinary ear buds, with premium audiophile headphones, sonic performance suffers.

Oppo HA-2SE (HA2SE) Headphone Amplifier
Oppo HA-2SE (HA2SE) Headphone Amplifier
The HA-2SE's power amplification circuit for the headphones is Class AB built with integrated circuits (ICs) and discrete transistors. The discrete transistor output stage uses hand-picked and matched parts. The output transistors are biased to operate in their most linear range for the critical small signal, and deliver their full potential when power is required.

Clean Signal Path
There is no DSP (Digital Signal Processor) in the HA-2SE. Volume control is operated by a combination of the DAC chip's internal digital volume control and an analog potentiometer

Musical Surroundings Fosgate Signature - Headphone Amplifier
Musical Surroundings Fosgate Signature - Headphone Amplifier
World-class audio engineer Jim Fosgate is the vision and expertise behind the Fosgate Signature Tube Headphone Amplifier. The Fosgate Signature embodies unique and patented circuit topologies, elevating the headphone listening experience. The genesis of the design started over 2 decades ago. Countless man-hours of working with every possible major circuit approach was not just explored, but designed, built, and auditioned by Jim Fosgate himself. Some initial designs used output transformers, some designs were direct drive with no output transformer. Others prototypes used solid-state circuitry and buffers to obtain low output impedance for driving headphones. Through this painstaking and thorough approach, a headphone amplifier design evolved which satisfied the exacting standards of Jim Fosgate.

This compact, multi-functional, fully Class A headphone amplifier is great for a variety of applications, but is made with the studio in mind. The Studio Cube is constructed so multiple units can be easily daisy-chained, meaning any number of headphones can be included into a studio monitoring or pro audio set-up. It also incorporates two Neutrik 1/4-inch TRS headphone connectors so two people can monitor through one box.
