Tiny Headphone Amplifier Uamp Takes to Kickstarter With A Soul Shaking Mission


On Tuesday (February 24th), Australia-based startup Uamp launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for its self-titled “soul shaking” headphones.

UAMP 4Uamp is a tiny headphone amplifier that easily fits in the coin pocket of your jeans and works with all your music devices. Now for the first time you can conveniently enjoy Hi-End sound on your smartphone, mp3 player, tablet, laptop or PC.

The headphone team stated, “Uamp is a link between your music player and your headphones. It’s a tiny amplifier which can produce the kind of premium quality audio that you expect from hi-end audio equipment used by audiophiles and sound producers.

“An amplifier magnifies an audio signal which is then emitted by a loudspeaker, or in this case, your headphones. An amplifier can be built into a device, such as an iPhone, or it can be an external unit. If you’re using a weak amplifier, as you turn the volume up the sound will become more distorted, but a good quality amplifier can produce clean, beautiful sound at the same high volume. This is the high-fidelity sound that Uamp provides.”

UAMP 3Audio engineer at Uamp, Bart Kowalski stated, “I love my hi-end audio setup, the sound is just so pure and clean. But then listening to music on my phone was a real let down. That’s why we created Uamp, so great sound isn’t restricted to the living room.”

That’s where Uamp comes in. Uamp provides the same high quality sound for a fraction of the price and size of standard amplifiers. Co-founder at Uamp, Joe Chehade noted, “We want to make premium sound accessible to everyone, on any device.” 

Uamp has a beautiful aluminum design, measures only 1.69 x 1.69 x 0.36 inches (43 x 43 x 9mm) and weighs just 0.9 ounces (26 grams). It can fit into the coin pocket of your jeans, allowing you to take it with you whilst walking, jogging, cycling, or travelling on the bus, train or plane. Combine all this with a ten hour rechargeable battery, and you have no excuse to miss out on high quality sound, wherever you are.

UAMP 2It has five times the power of the amp in an iPhone and works with just about any headphone on the market. Simply plug Uamp into your iPod, iPad, iPhone, Android device, laptop, or any device with a 3.5mm headphone output and experience turbocharged sound.

Uamp comes with five EQ presets (Bass Boost, Bass Boost 2, Treble, Streaming and Flat) as well as custom EQ setting that you can adjust yourself. The Streaming EQ preset is specifically designed to enhance the sound of music streaming services like Pandora, Spotify, Youtube, iTunes Radio, iHearts Radio and many more.

Uamp is available on Kickstarter now starting at an introductory price of $50 USD ($65 AUD). Its campaign is set to close on April 10th and the product will be shipped as early as this July.
