Shellbrook Audio Labs "Mini-Head" Amplifier

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Folks,

 

Long time "Reader" but haven't posted anything until now. I have several "Altoid" type headphone amplifiers and am looking to get something a little nicer. I found this amp on Ebay starting at $35.00, I wondered if anyone has experience with them?

 

What I have found from old reviews is that they are a very good amp and will drive Sennheiser's or even Grado headphones without a problem.

 

Any comments welcomed!

 

Thanks in advance, Jerry

Drew Dunn made great sounding headphone amps. This one came in the standard version shown in your pictures and the Signature version which had a few upgraded components. Both are excellent amps. I still have the Mini-Head Signature and regularly switch between it and an RSA Hornet. To tell you the truth, my ears can't distinguish which one is better. The mini-head may be slightly warmer in the high end. The Signature was sold for about $190 and the standard Mini-Head for a few $$ less. If you get it cheaply, I don't think you will be disappointed (unless you have golden ears). I have driven Grado 60's, 225's, 325's, Senn 580's and Shure E5c's with no problem. Enjoy!

Well made and good sounding amps.  Lousy customer service though, Drew was banned from HF around 2005.. IIRC.  He took a lot of members $$$ and ran with it.
