Product Description
Using the same technology as their well-received HPA-21, but at a fraction of the cost, Bakoon combines a SATRI circuit and dual 1/4” headphone jacks to achieve the ideal test of outputs. You can either plug into the voltage jack, which works best with low impedance headphones, or the current jack, which matches up with high impedance models Read More

Listening to the HPA-01 through TH-900 and source A&K 240. Playing DSD albums right now it's JT beautiful vocals, bass and guitars playing against a black background makes me smile and tap my feet. Favorite track is Secret O' Life. On the best of Marvin Gaye What's Going On, the sax intro to Marvin's strong vocals. Brings me back to the good old days when life was simple. On the rock side, the Division Bell, Pink Floyd What Do You Want From Me, David's guitar work and vocals really shine. In my opinion the HPA-01 makes the vocals stand out. Used the TH-900 with the voltage output. Tried the current with my HiFiMan HE-500 it does make a difference in sound. Looks like the best of both worlds. I'm happy with this buy.

To my ears it just sounded way better with the voltage output vs. the current mode on the Fostex. I haven't tried the beyerdynamics or the Fostex TH-600 yet. Too many headphones so little time.

I see. Since I have TH900/T1 as well. I found this amp is super with current mode for T1. And I am using current mode for all phones... Your comments drive me to have a try with my TH900 on voltage output as well.

One question about this that comes to mind is where would Massdrop customers be going for battery replacement if necessary?
Or will we be able to replace them ourselves? I understand the batteries are a common type, but they are glued down, right?

Hey Sanlitun,
Bakoon just told us if the battery ever dies, they don't recommend to attempt to replace it yourself. They say just ship it to them and they'll be happy to replace it for you.

One reviewer that said the HPA-01 was "85% performance for 60% of the price" and another one said it was "90% of the sound of the HPA-21". So somewhere in the 10-15% lower SQ is where consensus appears to land, although this is all highly subjective of course and dependent on what is feeding the amp and what cans you are using, etc. Also the curve starts to really flatten out in this portion of the "cost/performance" curve, where each incremental X% of SQ costs more and more moolah, so a straight comparison is very hard to do. Very tempting though!
