OK amplifier for low-impedance headphones


I owned two PA2V2 and while it's good value amp, it had far too many flaws to my liking. Gary however provided excellent customer support throughout the whole time. Ended up with O2 and I'm happy so far.

Excellent customer support, good value for entry amp, incredible battery life

Inverts phase, low-end distortion, not enough voltage for high-impedance cans, DC-offset on output when turned off, channel volume imbalance

current use is for watching movies / series on netflix on a nexus 7 tablet , though occasional use with a vintage sony 818 mp3 player. utterly spectacular analog-sounding output via koss porta-pro´s , which makes a match to rival much more expensive...

Great sound quality, battery and portable size


This amp has really sound quality , neutral side and wide soundstage . It could have a little more bass with bass boost switch but no complains here since i do prefer a neutral sound to get the natural performance from my iems. Battery is great , i...

Great neutral sound, nice detail and wide soundstage, great battery and price

Bass boost would be welcome, slightly bulky

Great amp!


Have had this small amp for a year or two and I use regularly with good sound quality, ample amplification, and satisfying listening through it. Gary, who builds these amps by hand is always ready to answer any query, and that is very re-assuring. Have...

Strong minimal efficient amp with long battery life.

No options to alter the sound (tone control, bass/highs control)

Phenomenal Amp, Unbelievable Value


First and foremost, let me say that Gary (the owner of Electric-Avenues) is seriously the friendliest, most helpful guy I have spoken to in a long while. He was so helpful throughout the question/ordering process. He made sure to answer every question...

Excellent Bass, Easy to Use, Minimal Hiss/Interference

Edit: A little hard to tell where the battery life is, although it lasts forever.

Don't hesitate, it's first rate!


The PA2V2 is an ideal candidate for a portable headphone amp. It works extremely well for my low impedance, inexpensive cans. And once I figured out the gain control adjustments (blue screws inside), it also works equally well for my high impedance,...

Build, audio, portability

gain adjustments inside, could use a big brother

Impressive amp, incredible price.


The PA2V2 was my very first experience with any headphone amplifier. I was not expecting it to make any difference, because the concept of an amp sounded silly to me. My ATH-M50s sounded fine running right out of my laptop, or my iPhone! After just a...

Small and light, punchy bass, long battery life.

Rather flimsy feeling power switch.

Excellent amp...Great Price...Outstanding Support...


I contacted Gary,the owner of Electric Avenue,and had many,many questions for him,as I am new to head-fi,and using headphones . He guided me through all I should need to know,and answered all my questions promptly. One of the forum members suggested I...

A small amp that packs a punch!


I bought this amp as an attempt to make my Bose OE sound a bit better. It failed to do so... simply because the Bose OE doesn't like any kind of amplification. After reading some forum posts, I decided to buy the Sony MDR-XB700 and they are...

Home-made, excellent SQ, price, independently-controlled gain levels per channel

No charging indicator, no bass control
