Audiophile-quality headphones are back.

Music enthusiasts from all around the world are upgrading their listening experience by getting rid of earbuds and connecting high-end headgear to their portable digital players, and more.

Pathos laboratories faced this new challenge: can we squeeze our very best quality and technology into few cubic centimeters?

The result is the newest Aurium headphone pure class A headphone amp.

Whathifi review - 5 Stars:

"We like this headphone amplifier a lot. The sound is a wonderfully seductive combination of transparency and grip. From the midrange upwards the Aurium is as detailed as you like."

Pathos rose to the challenge of putting its best technology and build quality into a headphone amp that sits comfortably on a desktop. The Aurium is a pure class-A amp that couples a tube stage with a MOSFET power stage. MOSFETs sound like tubes yet have a powerful grip on bass. There are few better ways to combine the magic of tubes with the extended and tight low end of solid-state than the Aurium.

The zero-feedback circuit offers all of Pathos' hallmarks: exquisite musicality, airy transparency, punchy dynamics, and total lack of listening fatigue. It is super-accurate and if you want to fine-tune the sound you can tube roll with any of the 6922 family or the 7-volt family such as the 7DJ8.
