Thread-topic: Whirlwind HAUC Headphone Amps

Chinese junk is cheap for a reason.  My guess is it’s probably just bad caps, though.  Simple enough to swap them out if you’re handy with a soldering iron, plus you can install better ones than they came with.

Late last year we did a studio make-over and I installed 5 Whirlwind HAUC Headphone Amps.

 

http://whirlwindusa.com/catalog/headphone-distribution/default/hauc-under-counter-active-stereo-headphone-control

 

These are little boxes that mount under the counter. I like that they have both 1/4 and 1/8 jacks and I can route different signals to different people.

 

When I started having some failures, I bought two as spares. Finally last week I sent three in for service. This morning I got a call that two more are bad. In my opinion this is an unbelievable failure rate.

 

So I have two questions:

 

  1. Do you have recommendations for a similar product?
  2. Do you have experience with these or similar Whirlwind product?
