Headphones Like speakers, headphones vary widely in quality and price. True connoisseurs know that making a headphone system sound good requires the same quality equipment that makes a regular set of speakers sound good. The first step is not to trust that your stereo amplifier will put out a clean sound through its headphone jack. Headphone companies make small amplifiers designed to run headphones that do an appreciably better job of driving headphones. If you are serious about a high quality pair of headphones, make the investment in a headphone amplifier.
