Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Sweet and soulful sound .. a very fulfilling experience so far

Recently moved my LCD X headphones from the dragonfly cobalt to a Gustard H16 amp paired with the Allo Revolution Dac. Both are being fed by a Pi4 streamer as a Roon endpoint. The whole system has turned out to be such a musical, full of life and absolutely fatigue free listening experience. I have spent unplanned long hours into the night just wanting more of just this joy of listening, the LCD X are flowing, the gustard is definitely adding a lot of warmth and air, making these headphone open up to their best performance. Overall super satisfied with this purchase and thank you headphone zone for making this happen. Thrilled with the addition of this amp.

H16 the entry into high end amplification

When I first listened to the amp initially it seemed mid forward and power starved with the Sundaras but as time progresses, with burn in its starting to show its true colours. Beautiful smooth analog and organic sound without any emphasis. It actually has the ability to make my cans vanish and let the pure music flow. Comparing with my Magni 3 plus, this sounds a touch more refined and spacious. A solid amp hopefully to last a long time I hope.

We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!
