Promising portable amp that doesn't deliver the goods

 

I got this little amp for very cheap and wasn't having any big attempt. First time I try it it was with my Grado 325 and Ibasso Dx90 and to be honnest it sound quite good, the little push was just enough to give them more air and warmth. Anyway, I...

Ultra portable and light, can sound good with some headphones, long battery life

Do not amp alot, can cause distortion to some headphones, no on-off switch for bass boost

Let the bass be with you

 

my first amp was the fiio e11. it was a high quality product but the bass effect wasn't enough for me. of course it was helping with the bass by reducing distortions on high volume levels but ap001 felt different to me. it's not a miracle device but...

Can handle 2 easy to drive phones simultaneously and it's 30-60hz deep bass power is better than if not equal to higher priceds (e.g. fiio e11k, e12)

Cannot handle a single power hungry earphone

Auto ON/OFF Active Headphone Out Splitter AMP With a Default Bass Boost Effect

 

AP001 is a battery powered headphone out splitter and amplificator. The first amp that Brainwavz have ever produced (as far as I know). It has a relatively cheap price around 29 USD. There are many amplification solutions on the market now for...

Double headphone out, small, light, easy to charge and carry, cable winding design, bass boost may be good for some users, relatively cheap

No volume control, easily scratches, bass boost can't be turned off, short battery life, coloration of sound

Mini Amplifier

 

It's almost Christmas and this year is almost coming to an end. Brainwavz introduced their first portable headphone amplifier last month and I would like to thank Audrey for sending a unit in for this review. I was actually hoping for something...

It's a cute Active Splitter!

 

Brainwavz AP001 surely has the cute factor, from its small size and unique contemporary design. But that's for the look. As for features, we might wonder, why Brainwavz designed a headphone amplifier with no volume control, and 'always ON' bass...

Unique and innovative product that sounds fun and enjoyable

Prone to EMI

Black Box of Bass

 

Disclaimer First of all, I would like to thank Audrey (@Salsera) and the Brainwavz team for giving me the opportunity to review their very first portable amplifier. I am neither an affiliate of Brainwavz nor any of its staff, nor am I being compensated...

Fun bass boost and good amplification in a diminutive package.

Suffers from issues and lacks features. You kinda just get what you pay for – which is totally not Brainwavz.

Clear sound, small footprint, two outputs

HiSSSSSS !! static pop . not powerful enough . cant turn the bass off .

Decent, low cost amp for bass lovers

 

This is my review of the new Brainwavz AP001 headphone amplifier. Audrey(Salsera on here) sent me one for this review, thanks! For starters, let me say I'm not a really big fan of portable amps. I like my portable rig as simple as possible to reduce...

Tiny, light weight, long lasting, simple

No on/off controls
