Another great product from Angry Audio, the company founded by radio-veteran Michael “Catfish” Dosch. The Headphone Gizmo is an headphone amp designed to live under the desk, exactly where it’s needed and convenient. But the Headphone Gizmo is also an headphone amp designed for radio, or anyone that does live production commentary, podcasting, with just the right features that many headphone enthusiasts would also enjoy.

“Radio jocks love loud headphones. Maybe they expect to hear everything with the phones around their necks. Maybe they want to watch the cans jumping to the beat. No matter the reasons, the Headphone Gizmo will give them all the volume they crave. And if your talent prefers to hear all the detail and nuance in their headphones, the precision analog circuitry in the Headphone Gizmo is as transparent as it is loud.” That’s the perfect introduction fro Angry Audio to the Headphone Gizmo.

Headphone Gizmo’s mount to the underside of a counter to save desktop space, always right where they’re needed and never in the way. The low-profile design has contoured edges to prevent painful knee incursions. Both 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch jacks are provided and the Headphone Gizmo was designed to drive any type of headphone, from full coverage headphones to modern IEMs.

For connections, users just need to feed the Headphone Gizmo stereo audio via its RJ-45 input connector (StudioHub+ format) from any studio node or blade output. Adapters are available for most audio connector types. A convenient daisy-chain output passes the signal along to the next device. And the Headphone Gizmo can be powered from a StudioHub+ power supply inserter or the included wall adapter.

Headquartered in Music City, USA (Nashville, Tennessee), Angry Audio makes the gadgets and gizmos that solve difficult studio problems for professional broadcasters and podcasters.

The Headphone Gizmo is available in two versions, one with a local volume control and the other with fixed gain. Like all Angry Audio products, the Headphone Gizmo is built for the rigors of radio with its powder-coated steel enclosure, premium components, and RFI-immune circuitry. And Michael “Catfish” Dosch promises: “It will sound amazing for years.”
