DESCRIPTION

AN IDEAL STEREO HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER

The HPA V280 was particularly designed for high-end audio transmission for low, medium and high impedance headphones. V280 houses a very low-distortion circuit making it ideal for dynamic headphones and to meet even the most advanced demands. The low internal gain allows the headphone amplifier to reduce the self-generated noise to nothing. The V280 offers best-in-class 60 Volt internal operating voltage which is more than 90% of what other headphone amplifiers offer that voltage. This makes the Violectric HPA V280 a perfect amplifier for high impedance headphones.

Headphone-Zone-Violectric-V280

WITH HIGH OUTPUT POWER AND DAMPING FACTOR

The Violectric HPA V280 is capable of assisting the headphones with high power output. This will allow low impedance headphones to deliver high-grade audio quality. Moreover, the high damping factor will help users to get complete control even on the critical headphones and enjoy a flat response.

EFFICIENTLY PLACED PORTS AND DURABLE DESIGN

The 8mm front panel is made of aluminium and is milled, sandblasted and is black anodized while the label is laser engraved. The complex 8 transistors per channel of the V280 deliver a soothing and relaxed sound stage. The rear panel of the headphone amplifier features all the input and output ports and also comes with electrically balanced XLR connectors and unbalanced RCA connectors. The amplifier gives volume control with the high-grade ALPS RK 27 pot. It has a complete metal rotary knob. The amplifier has four in-built amplifiers that provide balanced operation of headphones. Users get the option to connect through the 4-pin Neutrik XLR connectors. The front panel hosts 1/4" jacks to connect it to two headphones. The V280 offers six unique digital inputs including the Coaxial, optical or USB with either 24/96 kHz or 24/192 kHz.

About me:
I am a speaker guy. I firmly believe that what a decent pair of stereo system can do, a headphone system just won't no matter at what price. IEM and earphone is a strong pass for me.

Following were my shortlisted options:
- Woo Audio WA22 - Auditioned at a friend's place
- HeadAmp GS-X Mini - Auditioned at another friend's place
- Violectric HPA V280 - Never auditioned.

I own Audeze LCD-XC 2021 edition which are easy to drive so my primary reason for looking for an amplifier was to get the highs tamed just a bit while adding weight to the entire range of the frequencies. I confirm that Violectric does this the best having now heard them all out of my own pair of headphones and my own DAC. (In a nutshell, the same chain)

Right out of the box when you start it up and turn on the music, you immediately feel the expanded sound space. Believe me my LCD-XC now had a bigger sound-stage than the open back Focal Clear owned by friend. After a while you don't feel like you are listening to headphones at all. They start to sound like a pair of bookshelf speakers in nearfield. At-least the presentation of the music becomes very speaker like and I absolutely love that.

The sound is fuller, clearer and impactful. Absolutely no etching of the highs and the most beautiful mid-range. Bass remains neutral while the impactful and punchy. This takes away your focus from the bass to the vocals and instruments, which is where the music actually resides. So if you listen to Rock, Folk, Jazz, Classical or any of its mixture, then this amplifier is your endgame.

Comparison

- Woo Audio WA22 - Sounds very similar but the bass is noticeably muddier. While the highs are better than the Violectric I believe for most of the people. But from me I prefer the V280.
- HeadAmp GS-X Mini - This is neutral. I felt that I was listening to my RME's headphone out with a touch of space and weight to the music. Many would prefer the GS-X Mini if a neutral sound is what you seek.
- Topping A90 - This is a highly regarded amplifier and I can't wrap my head around why. This sounds thin, high frequencies is a mess. Some hf sound peaky while other sound recessed. Vocals sound soulless. Even at half the price of the Violectric I cannot recommend them.

Hope this was a good read.

HI Gaurav,
We are so happy you took out time & elaborately reviewed the product with a comparison. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better & informed decision.
