Is there any diy headphones amp kits around? I just checked the Sonic Frontiers web site and they have closed down their diy company. Any other ideas out there in cyberspace?

Thanks for any ideas

Try poking around Link Removed and Head-Fi - quite a few different designs out there. HeadWize also has a new project write-up, a portable DAC with headphone amp. Fun. :)

Im curious.

What benefits do you get with a headphone amp? I mean, you can only go so far when the driver(s) are an inch from your eardrum. But I guess its not only about how loud it goes.

Actually, I am just assuming that these amps are for "professional" headphones and may work better with more power.

Enlighten me please. Maybe I could venture this way as well.
