Headamp Slim for $160, Pico or Power for $250 each (with 3 Year Warranty) [MD]

Also running for the next two days and change (from blog posting time) is the new condition Headamp trio of products. The Slim goes for $160 with free shipping, the Pico DAC/amp goes for $250 and the Pico Power goes for $250 as well. Details on the individual models over there. They will ship in mid-April 2018 from Massdrop with all sales final as usual. They come with a 3-year HeadAmp warranty which is nice considering many things at Massdrop do not come with a warranty.

HeadAmp Pico Slim Amp for $200, Pico DAC/amp for $250 [MD]

Speaking of DACs and amps, with the Massdrop clock ticking (two days left in the offer), the HeadAmp Pico Slim Amp goes for $200, while the Pico non-Slim DAC/amp version goes for $250, with free shipping. They ship in mid-to-late May 2017, and these too are “all sales final”. They are made in USA by Headamp which offers a refreshing 3-year warranty. The amp has 3.5mm inputs and outputs. The DAC/amp has those too, along with USB input.

Breaking News: Headroom getting out of retail and focusing on making gear (including new planar headphones)

UPDATE 4/26/17 at 11:32pm ET: as expected, the bidding wars heated up for the domain name, currently at a minimum bid of $100,000. It will likely get into the millions. Which is good because it will fund future Headamp DACs, amps, headphones and other audio devices 🙂

Breaking news! Headroom is getting out of the headphone retail business and will be focusing on making headphone gear instead (aka going back to their roots). Their domain (a very desirable headphone.com) is available for purchase through domain-seller Sedo (currently at $90 but it will go much higher). Their gear, including the upcoming “Cosmic” planar magnetic headphone (coming summer 2017) can be found at headroomaudio.com. The announcement just came out in their emailing list and on their twitter.

This is not an April Fool’s Day joke!

HeadAmp Pico Slim for $208, DAC/amp for $258 [MD]

Massdrop kinda needs to improve the way they show multiple different products on the same listing as it can get confusing, and confusing typically means fewer sales 🙂 Anyway, in a new offer, running for the next seven days or so (from blog-posting date), two Headamp products are offered and they are currently unlocked. The Pico Slim headphone-amp goes for $200, while the combo DAC/amp goes for $250. Shipping is $8 flat. They are expected to ship around Tax Day 2017.

PS: due to time constraints, there isn’t a new This Week in Headphoolia round-up this week. It will be back next Sunday covering the last two weeks.
