Anybody try one of these cheap, tiny headphone amps? Seems to be the company as Meizu.

I have one on order. Don't expect much, but then I didn't pay much and would love to be surprised. Selling point for me is its tiny size. My Sony A818 drives ER-4Ps great but I prefer the 4S sound and I pretty much have to max out the volume on the Sony to get to a good listening level with the 100 ohm phones. A tiny amp that sounds good would be a nice bonus if I ever want to turn it up to 11.

thanks,

John

Bad info - I posted a link to what I thought was the same amp but I was incorrect.

Where did you order this amp from? When do you expect delivery? I am very curious about this amp, as Meizu has produced some quality products.

OK, just got the amp. It is TINY. I mean, really tiny. I don't know if pictures even convery the tininess of it. I've never seen a Xin Supermicro, but it can't be any smaller than this thing. Very nicely packaged, seems very well-made. Obviously, there's no volume adjustment. Between my Sony A818 and Ety ER-4Ps w/ S-cable, it sounds good, though I haven't listened enough yet to say how good. Volume-wise, the ER-4Ps without the 4S cable seem to have just about the same volume as they do with the amp + cable. Which is basically what I was looking for. So I can get the 4S sound with the 4P volume. Soundstage seems a bit wider with the amp, and a bit more bass as well, but those are based on very brief listening.

Two things are for sure: 1) I'll have no trouble fitting this amp in my shirt pocket or front pants pocket along with the A818 & 2) it was worth the price I paid!
