ELEKIT Vacuum Tube Hybrid Portable Headphone Amp

Hi All,

 

Noticed this on eBay yesterday, and have done some digging around but can't seem to find any reviews. Anyone come across one before, and have any impressions?

Did you have a chance to compare this to the BL-2? Given an equal price of about RMB 1,800 here, which would you choose for use with a DX50 and either Beyer DT48e or Sennheiser HD25?

Clearly, the Elekit has a much longer battery life (and the batteries can be swapped). How does the sound compare, though?

As far as SQ goes, both are about the same level and I won't say one if noticeably better than the other. BL-2 does sound more forwarded and energetic than TU-HP01, which is more laidback and relex. Practically however, BL-2 has much higher gain and more suitable for high impedance headphone while TU-HP01 is more for mid-to-low impedance headphone and better in portability.

 

Don't own a DX50, or DT48e/HD25 to give any specific comment about them.

I've actually had one for quite a few months now but haven't spent much time with it to be honest. The sensitivity of the tube's "ping" novelty has worn off and started to bug me a lot. I actually didn't use the stock OpAmp nor the supplied one much and immediately plonked in my Muses02 in it. As per ClieOS's review, it's actually not bad of an intro to tube amp. It doesn't have the bass thump as much as I'd like (though I've not tried the stock OpAmp as previously mentioned).

drop me a PM or post on this thread with request. We would like to possibly send some of the gear on Tour (In USA)

If we can gather few headfiers  who can get the desired unit in for testing for a week or two and sending it to the next headfier in line.

May I know the sound quality comparison between Elekit TU-HP01 comparing to GoVibe Porta Tube?
