Teac HA-P50 overview

  • 1Description

The red version of the HA-P50 Portable Headphone Amplifier and USB DAC from Teac provides improved digital-to-analog audio conversion for your iOS and Android devices, as well as your Mac or PC Computer. Its headphone amplifier can power high-impedance headphones up to 600 ohms, allowing you to connect them to your portable device which may otherwise not be powerful enough for them.

The HA-P50 features a BurrBrown PCM5102 DAC chip for performing its digital-to-analog conversion. Its built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 8 hours of operation time and can be charged with the included USB recharging cable. 2 rubber fixing straps and a USB computer connection cable are also included.

Portable Amplifier for High-Performance Headphones
The HA-P50 is a headphone amplifier for the audiophile on the go. It allows you to take a reference grade headphone listening experience outdoors and enjoy it wherever you want to go. Packing a digital-to-analog adapter and high specification power amplifier circuit into a compact body, it is designed to bring out the very best from quality headphones
Improved Sound from your iOS or Android Device via USB Digital Input
Digital audio stored in your iOS or Android device are extracted via USB and processed through the HA-P50's high-performance built-in digital-to-analog converter, with minimal sound degradation for playback quality. The HA-P50 can be used with the free TEAC HR Audio Player app for high-resolution 24bit/96 kHz audio playback for iPhones and other iOS-based devices. There's no need to buy a separate adapter (such as the Apple Camera Connection Kit) in order to connect. Also, it comes with rubber fixing straps for securing it to an iPhone or Android handset, making the HA-P50 easy to carry around
BurrBrown PCM5102 DAC Chip
The built-in BurrBrown PCM5102 digital-to-analog converter is capable of processing digital audio signals up to a maximum of 24-bit/96 kHz resolution
160mW + 160mW Output Gain
Fitted with a 160mW + 160mW high-output power amplifier (at 32Ω load) that lets you drive 600Ω-class headphones at full power
Low Distortion Discrete Power Section
Uses an OPA 1652 operational amplifier to process audio signals with purity. The discrete push-pull circuit achieves a low distortion rate of 0.001% (at 100mW + 100mW output)
Dual-Setting Gain Switch for Use with High-Impedance Headphones
Fitted with a high/low gain selector which enables output gain to be matched to the impedance of the headphone being used. An indispensable feature for those who use high-impedance headphones
Accepts USB Input from PCs & Macs
The HA-P50 accepts input from your computer via USB. Capable of high-resolution 24-bit/96 kHz sound source playback when used with the TEAC HR Audio Player app (free to download) installed on your Windows PC/Macintosh
Optical Digital and Analog Outputs
The HA-P50 employs an optical digital input terminal that can be connected to a home audio system. With its dual-function AUDIO IN port for analog audio, the HA-P50 takes input from non-digital audio players and passes it through its amplifier circuits, letting you enjoy a headphone listening environment wherever you are
Compact Aluminum Body
Constructed from durable aluminum, the HA-P50's compact, flat body measures just 21.7mm thick, for mobile environments where toughness, small size and lightness are essential. Designed from the outset for mobile use, its compact aluminum volume knob has just the right torque to allow fine volume adjustment. Raised guards on either side prevent accidental volume changes when the HA-50 is being carried in a pocket or bag, as well as protecting headphone plugs from bumps
USB Recharging and 8 Hours of Continuous Battery Life
The HA-P50 has a built-in 2100mAh Li-ion battery, allowing a maximum of 8 hours of continuous battery life (with digital connections) and the included USB-A type DC cable allows recharging from a computer's USB port. A separately sold TASCAM PS-P515U AC adapter allows rapid recharging from wall/mains power, if required. Thanks to its auto power save function, the unit goes into sleep mode after 30 minutes if it has failed to detect a sound signal, or if there's no headphone jack plugged into the headphone port

    Teac HA-P50 reviews

    HA-P50 Portable Headphone Amplifier and USB DAC (Red) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and pleasing Growing tired of everyone judging dacs unfairly. Especially ones meant for portable use. I won't be mixing or mastering on this dac so I don't need a cold sterile Sabre dac for my on the go use. This dac/amp has a very warm and close sounding sound signature which would work best with closed cans. It throws plenty of power at my T50rp MK3s and has either a micro or full sized usb input; love this bed cause micro connections seem to loosen too quickly over time. There is no bass boost because it doesn't need one, its built like a tank, and has an excellent tactile feel all around. A definite winner. Upgraded from a Fiio E18 but this one is staying with me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not up to expectations bought this amp to power headphones when using computer or cell phone amp greatly compresses sound--a major disappointment to be fair, burn in isn't complete, but I'm not expecting that dramatic a turn around
