Ear HP4 headphone amplifier

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
anyone know anything about the Ear HP4 headphone amplifier?



it costs $2400, making it a wee bit out of my price range, but was curious to hear what people thought about it.

This amp has been around for a while now...Headroom sells them, and the one other Sony MDR-R10 owner on these boards also uses the EAR HP4 with it. It's good, make no mistake about it...probably just one notch under the Cary and the Holmes Powell. I wouldn't mind one myself except it's beyond what I'm willing to pay for any audio equipment.

http://www.stoneaudio.co.uk sells it... that 'tis where i found it.

they also sell this thing called, IMERGE SOUNDSERVER M1000

you can buy it with up to 225GB of storage. You pop in a CD and you choose to either rip and encode it into mp3 or simply store it uncompressed. you can special it order with anywhere between 2 and 16 outputs!

Ahhh...that brings back fond memories of the monster headroom many wall-o-headphones/amps/etc. contest

About time for another contest, methinks....

Also, remember awhile back someone actually buying this, but returning it in favor of the sugden headmaster. Any others remember this? Damn, need those archives...

Actually, in that issue of The Absolute Sound a year ago or so, I believe the author concluded that the EAR was the best out of that shootout. But it was only a prototype at the time...same article that helped me conclude on the RKV...

I have a lot of interest for this amp, but I see because of this thread that between 2001 and 2016, its price has  been multiplied by almost three !!!

 

******* crazy.

 

Hard to find reviews of it but all I read is about : this is the best headphone amp ever made in the history...
