Looking for a headphone amp recommendation....

Recommended Posts

Headphone amp recommendation....


I want something between my iPad and a pair of headphones that need more power than what an iPad can put out.  The rated power now is “not enough power to push a pissants go cart around the inside of a cheerio”.


I really don’t want to invest a bunch of dough.  I just want to run a decent pair of headphones like an AKG240 or something like.

Im not striving for “audiophile” experience. 

Hope that is helpful for any recommendations. 


Can someone help please?

Thank you  in advance.

Good recommendation Doc. And absolutely nothing can touch the quality of that amp for anywhere near the pittance they charge for it!




It's my travel amp, for when I begin traveling again!

No electron left behind...

Sounds like the headphones are inefficient. I have no volume issues with an older iPad mini and several different headphones. I’ d suggest buying a more efficient headphone/IEM is the more cost effective solution for portability.
