A SOUND TO RAVE ABOUT

The Beyerdynamic A2 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

With its powerful and lively response, the A 2 brings out the best performances from all dynamic headphones and supplies an excellent reproduction quality that is as close as possible to the original sound: From highs with a brilliant resolution and absolutely authentic mid-range to a deep, natural bass. Amazingly noise-free operation and precise control can be enjoyed via all headphones that are connected, regardless of their impedance.



FULLY DISCRETE AND ADJUSTABLE

Selected, hand-assembled components and the discrete circuit design open up a richness of detail that is hard to beat. Due to the two headphone outputs two people can enjoy their favourite music together and the sophisticated, intuitive operation of the A 2 fills with enthusiasm. Applications such as the volume can be precisely and infinitely adjusted via the convenient remote control.

The Beyerdynamic A2 Headphone Amplifier Offers an Incredible Listening Experience

As a special highlight, the A 2 is currently the only device on the market that provides separate adjustments for the impedance and sensitivity of the connected headphones as well as different levels of the audio sources. This means that headphones between 16 ohms and 600 ohms can be operated perfectly on the A 2 without distortion occurring at high levels.

With the voltage selector switch the supply voltage can be adjusted to 110 - 120 V or 220 - 240 V, which allows the device to be used worldwide.

SOPHISTICATED INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Like its little brother, the A 20, the A 2 top-of-the-line model is based on a clearly structured, elegant design with smooth rounded housing edges without visible joins, screws or rivets made of massive, anodised aluminium. Another special eye-catcher is the transparent charcoal-coloured glass panel, which is flush with the top surface, enabling you to look through the famous beyerdynamic sound-wave logo into the noble interior of the A 2. LEDs spectacularly illuminate the circuit board in a warm light.

Each A 2 is supplied with an extraordinary accessory, a rugged headphone stand made of aluminium. When it is attached to the device, it serves as a practical storage solution for the headphone keeping it ready at all times hanging over the device.

Headphone Amplifier Specifications

Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC)
A Digital-to-Analog converter (also known as a DAC) converts a digital audio signal into an analog signal. This is especially helpful for listen to music from digital sources, such as iPods and smart phones.
Built-in
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the amplifier will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
1 - 100,000 Hz
Input Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifiers receive an input audio signal.
Stereo RCA
Output Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifier will output the audio signal.
Stereo RCA
Number of Outputs
Some headphone amplifiers have a built-in splitter so multiple pairs of headphones can be connected to it. The number specified here is the number of headphones that can be connected to the amplifier.
