Got an email today that my Headroom Micro shipped today! One week after ordering. Should hopefully have it on Tuesday. Can't wait to hear how it stacks up against the SR-71 and SuperMacro v3. Will post impressions after giving it a good listen.

Congrats! They handed me the stack of three units that went out today. It felt really good to hold the first production amps of our new line. Enjoy!

Did you just order the Headroom Micro AMP, or did you order the entire Micro stack: Micro AMP, Micro DAC, and Micro Strap (to hold them all together.)

Great to hear that you will post your impressions, and don't forget to get your Digital Cam ready.


Thanks!

I ordered the Micro stack and just assumed that the Micro strap would be included. I couldn't find a place on the HeadRoom site to order it separately. Did I miss something?

I think the MicroStrap has not been released yet. http://www.headphone.com/products/he...he-micro-line/

I feel honored...one of the first three.

Tyll - do you recommend any burn in for the Micro Amp? I know Ray recommends 50 hours for his amps, and Xin recommends 100 hours for the SuperMacro v3, what does HeadRoom recommend for the Micro Amp?

I only ordered the Micro Amp. I'm an iPod user, so the Micro DAC wouldn't do me any good.

I'll definitely post some impressions and pics!

Sure I do. I think you should turn it on as soon as you get it and don't stop listening for a long, long time.


Seriously, though, It's not that I don't believe things burn in over time---they do---it's just that I don't think it makes THAT big a difference. If there is anything that burns in over time that makes a big difference it's your head adapting to a new sound. My motto is: just enjoy it.

Oh yeah, the strap does not come with the stack. It won't be available for a few months yet.

I can't wait until they start coming in more regularly.. the only reason I haven't ordered one yet is because I don't think I could take the 2-4 week wait. One week wait I could probably deal with though (because I'd have to sell my other amp to finance the purchase of the Micro)..

Lucky my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks-- hopefully I'll get enough to pay for most of the Micro purchase!

Tyll - Inquiring minds want to know...any comparison between the sound of the Total Airhead and the new Micro Amp?

I was coveting the Micro the other day on the new site - What's the going rate for a kidney these days?
