SPL Phonitor One

Headphone amplifier with crossfeed function

Editor's recommendations: Amplifier Headphones

You actively opt for a dedicated headphone amplifier because, after all, it requires separate cabling from the source device. Conversely, you might say: If you invest money in high-quality headphones for stationary use and possibly even use them as a daily work tool, you would do well not to skimp on the amplifier. SPL’s Phonitor One masters its self-imposed task with a brilliant price-performance ratio. This applies to both the model presented here and the version with supplementary USB interface. As a special feature, the integrated Phonitor Matrix offers real added value in the assessment of sound signals designed for loudspeaker output, ultimately providing improved assurance of sound compatibility.

SPL Phonitor One

With the Groove, Apogee offers a headphone amplifier which represents an excellent sound upgrade with a reasonable RRP of 219 euros. The upgrade in sound is clearly audible, unlike plenty of other mini amps. At the same time, its areas of application are varied: from stationary multimedia computers to mobile devices, the Groove can actually compete with any USB interface. If you are looking for an interface that is premium class in all areas, while also inconspicuously small, you can finally put a useful sound upgrade in your pocket with the Groove.
