Choice of tubes make a difference in the sound of the Bellari HA540.
Drink Me
My other phones include the Sennheiser HD598 and AKG Q701, and they are great with this amp also.
Raybird
The sound was punchy with extended bass and a smooth but detailed sound.

Though I'm the satisfied owner of a Fiio E9 headphone amp, I own Ultrasone PRO750 headphones which are much like Grados only with more robust bass. The Ultrasones sound dry on some recordings, so when I found the Bellari HA540 Class A tube headphone amp at a steep discount, I purchased it. Since my integrated amp has two tape loops, I can connect the Fiio and the Bellari simultaneously.

The Bellari is manufactured in the USA by a division of Rolls. Readers might be familiar with Rolls through their HA43PRO headphone amp, which is often used to connect to the RCA outs of a TV. The Bellari uses one tube, a 12AX7, which is very common and easily sourced. Rather than use the stock tube, I purchased a Mullard reissue.

The Bellari is a Class A amp, but is barely warm to the touch. It's an OTL design: there's no output transformer. In practical terms, that means your headphones are providing the load on the tube. Headphones with too low an impedance could overdrive the amp. A headphone amp is the perfect application for an OTL design because headphones rarely have impedances as low as loudspeakers, which are mostly in the 4 to 8 ohm range.

The lowest impedance headphones I own are the Denon AH-D2000 at 25 Ohms, and the Bellari can handle it--but that's about as low an impedance as I'd want. The Ultrasone PRO 750 isn't very efficient, but the Bellari has lots of gain--it can drive the Ultrasones into pain territory without trying. It has two gain settings: a low setting for iPods, and a high setting for typical line out devices like CD players or the tape loop of a preamp, integrated amp, or receiver. The low and high designations refer to the input voltage, iPods having lower output than CD players or tape loops.

Either you get or don't get the value of tube amplification. I'll leave that debate for others.

Headphone amps really do 'pull' the sound out of a pod, and I've used and enjoyed a battery-powered 'Total Airhead' for many years now. Unilke battery devices, tubes need more juice, so this is an 'at home' gizmo, although it is small and quite portable for road warriors.

If you are ripping your music in lossless formats for use on I-Pods, I-pads or other portable devices, and enjoy a good pair of headphones, this little box is worthy of your attention.

When you break audio out of a pad/pod through the line-out dock connector, this will drive your headphones with gobs of headroom to spare, and deliver a pretty amazing listening experience. Sounds is like you had mud in your ears without it.

I use this with both lower-high-end Grado's and Dennon's and am delighted with the transparency, image integrity and overall 'musicality' of the experience.

I use these in my 'reading spot', a comfortable chair with strong full-spectrum light and can really get 'lost' in the splendor of the sound.

I've yet to play with swapping out tubes (yes, you can play around with a variety of Ax7 options to 'tune' your own sound) but can happily report that this amp gives a listening experience far beyond the fiscal investment.

The gain is quite high, and the volume control could have been trimmed differently (I never, ever move it past 1/4) for more precise adjustment, but that's nit-picking. This, a pod and any good headphone set will give you sonic satisfaction.

I've owned other audio devices from Rolls (Bellari's alter-ego) and had good service from them, and expect the same from this.

I own a pair of Denon AH-D5000 headphones Denon AH-D5000 Reference Headphones. My primary use of these headphones is with my digital Yamaha Clavinova CLP 380 piano. On a high-quality Marantz receiver, I could easily get the volume level very loud on my headphones so that no further amplification was needed. However, at the very highest volume on my piano, these headphones weren't very loud. So I realized I would need some type of amplification for the headphones. Initially, I purchased a Pro-Ject Head Box II headphone amplifier Pro-Ject: Head Box II Headphone Amplifier - Silver. Unfortunately, even with the volume on both the piano and headphone amplifier turned all the way up there wasn't much increase in overall volume. I considered buying a pre-amp at this point, and then I came across reviews of the Bellari HA540 Headphone Amp. I decided to return the Pro-Ject amplifier and purchased the Bellari HA540 Headphone Amp instead. Voila, using the low gain input on the headphone amplifier I was able to achieve an extremely loud volume at half way on both the piano and headphone amplifier. Also of note is the fact that connecting the Bellari HA 540 Headphone Amp to the Marantz receiver I was able to achieve blaringly loud volumes.

As others have noted, changing out the 12AX7 tube is quite easy and well worth it. The Ruby tube it comes with is ok, however I found the Mullard Reissue to be the best, with a Tungsol tube coming in 2nd.

I have been looking for a headphone amp to play music on my computer. I purchased the Nuforce recently and although is is portable I did not notice an appreciable improvement in sound quality. The Bellari is just what I was seeking. It provides a warm tone to all my downloaded music and improves the quality of all headphones from the least expensive on up. If you are considering a headphone amp(and you should) I guarantee the Bellari is a product that exceeds expectations.
