Product Description

Naim HeadLine headphone amp is designed to offer optimum performance from a variety of high impedance headphones and is a perfect choice for headphones like the Sennheiser HD650, Sennheiser HD700, Sennheiser HD800, Grado PS500, Grado GS1000i and similar hi-fi headphones.


Fitted with a captive lead, the HeadLine takes its signal from the tape socket of any of Naim's preamplifiers, except the NAC 152 XS. It has its own volume control and is designed to be very, very quiet. It has the ability to drive most headphones to an adequate level (i.e. loud) with low distortion.

Headphones tend to be highly revealing of both noise and distortion, so we have expended a great deal of effort getting these parameters to extremely low levels. The HeadLine needs to be used with an external power supply such as the NAPSC. If using a FlatCap XS, HiCap or SuperCap you will also need a special interconnect; the SLIC.


We are here to help find the right system for you. As a suggested starting point, you may want to consider partnering the HeadLine with the following:
