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.

Audio-technica AT-HA5050H (ATHA5050H) Hybrid Headphone Amplifier
Audio-technica AT-HA5050H (ATHA5050H) Hybrid Headphone Amplifier
AT-HA5050H

All headphones are not the same. Each model has its own character, its own sonic signature. That’s why we’ve created a headphone amp that lets you choose from four different output impedances (two outputs each of 0.1, 33, 82 and 120 ohms) to experience a sound that best suits you and your headphones.

The AT-HA5050H is a hybrid Hi-Res Audio headphone amplifier – hybrid because it employs a pair of tubes at the preamp stage and transistors at the power amp stage. Having tubes in the preamp adds warmth and depth to the music, while the bipolar transistors provide distortion-free Class A amplification that is powerful enough to drive headphones of varying impedances without any problem. To further optimize power supply in the amplifier, each part of the amplifier is fed by individual power supply units with fast recovery diodes and regulating circuitry.

SH Headphone Amp

Unison Research are expanding on their class-leading range of valve-based hi-fi electronics to produce their first ever dedicated headphone amplifier solution. The SH is a single-ended, two-stage full-valve headphone amplifier designed to accommodate traditional analogue and modern computer-based audio sources.

The SH began with the same basic remit as the coveted Simply Italy integrated amplifier; to produce a world-class sound from a specialised device using the best technology available. The result was a fairly simple, linear circuit that produces an output voltage which is more than capable of driving a wide range of headphones, while keeping distortion low throughout the frequency range. This allows the SH to deliver a consistent, coherent sound character when in use.
