Contest #11: Win a HeadRoom Total BitHead Amp and Denon AH-D1001

contest 11 win a headroom total bithead amp and denon ah d1001

Lack of thump in your headphones getting you down? The piddly headphones that came with your iPod will run directly from the device without complaining, but many audiophile cans require an extra dose of amplification to reach their true potential. Fear not, HeadRoom has you covered. HeadRoom’s Total BitHead will not only act as a standalone amplifier using four AAA batteries to coax a better signal from portable devices like iPods, it will also plug into a PC via a USB cable and perform all the digital-to-analog signal conversion onboard, for a cleaner signal than that cheapo line-out jack poking out the back of your motherboard.

And here’s where things get sweet. The audiophile Mecca has hooked us up with both a Total BitHead amp and a pair of Denon AH-D1001 full-size cans to mate it with. A match made in heaven? We think so. The whole shebang is worth about $310, but one lucky winner can pick it up for free, no strings attached, by entering below!

Sorry. This form is no longer available.
