Good evening!
 
Just wanted to reach out to my fave place for audio questions with this one question.
 
I bought a custom portable amplifier ~2 years ago to rock with my first "decent" pair of headphones at the time (Sennheiser HD 485)
 
It was made by a reputable cmoy maker recommended at one point in time from this site I believe. Anyway, the question is:
 
Is the chip that is in it , inferior, low quality, or aged?
 
When I open it up, it has two capacitor looking things with VRM on them
and a black chip soldered to a board that says OPA2227b
 
 
------------------------------
 
I was wondering if there would be any benefit utilizing this amp for my Galaxy S3 phone to my HD 485

before you get the answer, hook it up, play some of your favourite music that you are intimately familiar with, close your eyes and give yourself up to the music.
 
See how you like it.
 
Doesn't matter what a thing is, if you appreciate it, you appreciate it.

^ Well said.
