[Jesse] sent in this headphone amp. It’s really just a board with a dedicated smd headphone amp chip(MAX9725) and a pair of smd caps recycled from an old hard drive, but it does job. I think the goal is to boost low signals rather than the usual audiophile quest for cleaner tunes.

thats realy cool it must have been hard l solder they shold build it into the end of a 3.5 mm jack
I am really impressed, honest.
That this is the worst prototyping I’ve ever seen.
I suggest that we make a competition called
“Worst prototyping of the year”.
Rules could be something like this:
1) You are only allowed to use junk, the worse the better.
2) Only rough tools are allowed.
All good contests have three rules, what should be the third ?
It reminds me of making music only using command.com as a digital sample.
Damn I feel old.
good lord that’s gross looking. a tiny little $5 zippy box would have benefited it immensely :)
i pity the fool.
no really nice recycling.
Benjamin SÃ¸lberg Your snobbery is misplaced on a hacking website such as this.
While making stuff “look pretty” is always a plus when it comes to this stuff, having the project _work_ is usually the main thrust.
Hackers have varying levels of proficiency when it comes to this stuff so give ’em a break.
