When do you need to use a headphone amplifier?

There are various reasons for using a headphone amplifier: 

  1. The voltage level on the player is too low and therefore the volume emitted from the headphones is too low. It sounds too quiet.
  2. The transmission properties of the headphone output on the player are not satisfactory (e.g. distortion, limited frequency response, noise, artefacts, low channel separation).
  3. You want to have a specific sound influence.

Beyerdynamic headphone amplifiers satisfy points 1 and 2 particularly well. However, as we simultaneously want to offer devices that are as neutral as possible, point 3 should not be a criterion when selecting our devices.

Our headphone amplifiers also allow you to operate headphones with high impedances (e.g. 600 ohms) without any problems.
