    I read many information from specialists that nowadays better will be to buy good tube headphone amplifier, rather than a transistor one. But such thing you should buy if you have really good headphones with high quality sound. I recommend to read theguruchoice blog and then to make a choice. Good luck!

    I think it really depends on your music tastes and listening style, ie, loud, soft… tubes will always roll frequency off at the lowest bass and highest treble, but if the rest of your gear and speakers r up to it, it will ad a more holographic soundstage with more presence and warmth to the midrange. For different listening, you can get more information by comparing Best Low watt Tube Amp
