Headphones can be considered as high quality loudspeakers, but with a much lower power requirement. For this reason, they have distortion levels on an order of magnitude lower than conventional speakers, and therefore are capable of showing up amplifier deficiencies more clearly. What's more, headphones are one-way systems, with very few exceptions, and for this reason crossovers do not interfere with sound quality. Consequently, a headphone amplifier must offer the best possible sound quality, even at very low volume levels, whilst working not unlike a real power amplifier.

   The CanAmp, our bestseller headphone amplifier can fulfill all these criteria offering a no-compromise solution at a realistic price – in fact, given its technology and manufacturing quality we might even say at a „discount" price. It is the ideal auxiliary amplification for the majority of headphones including many top-class models from Sennheiser, AKG, Beyerdynamic, Audio Technica, Goldring and Ultrasone, and even some notoriously low impedance Grado's and Denon's can be driven by the CanAmp with astonishingly good results. The synergy of the AKG K701 and the Heed CanAmp is legendary.
