Last week’s Winners

The Simgot giveaway was a success and we have selected two winners. This week that’s Alexander and Eric from the USA. The lucky winners will be contacted shortly by email (check your spam folder), so make sure to get in touch.

Number 37

As promised and explained earlier, we’ll be doing a year long of weekly giveaways and last September was the start of our 52-week celebration. For this 37th round of the biggest audio giveaway the world has ever seen, we’re giving away one Element from JDS Labs. That is a $350 USD prize! This excellent AMP/DAC can become yours and all you have to do is … sign up and leave a comment. Any comment is good but tell me what the source is you’ll be using this with.

But first, let’s look at JDS Labs and the Element you can win.

JDS Labs The Element

JDS Labs The Element

JDS Labs

JDS Labs is a US based brand that operates since 2007. They are the producer of many critically acclaimed products. Their main aim is to get great sounding and affordable gear out to the many consumers. Their vast product-line consists of amplifiers, digital to analogue converters, hardware equalizers, CMOY amps and even DIY kits. JDS Labs offers it all in pursuit to satisfy their customers. All of their products are made in the USA, which makes the impressive prices even more appealing.

We have covered a number of their products in the past: https://www.headfonia.com/?s=JDS+Labs and the one we’re giving away today is the Element DAC/AMP.

The Element

The Element’s product page can be found right here: https://jdslabs.com/product/the-element/

It’s Nathan who reviewed it for us back in 2015, and he as so many audiophiles absolutely love it. Check out his review right here:

Winner

The lucky winner will have his/her unit shipped directly by JDS Labs. JDS Labs will cover the shipping fee of the IEM to you but neither Headfonia or JDS Labs will cover any other expenses such as VAT, import fees, tax, etc. This is all the winner’s responsibility so if you’re not up for that, it’s best not to enter. JDS Labs also won’t lower the unit’s value for shipping.

In order to enter the competition you need to do the following steps:

  • Fill out the form on the page linked below. Use a real full name/surname to enter the contest (partial name entries are no longer accepted) + real email address as this is the address we will use to contact the winner
  • Leave a comment on this post you’re reading here. Preferably telling me what your the source will be for this AMP/DAC.

And while you’re at it like the JDS Labs and Headfonia Facebook pages HERE and HERE, if you haven’t already.

The winners will be chosen at random out of those that completed all 2 steps!

After signing up you’ll get a personal link to share. For each new participant that enters via your personal link on Twitter, Google+ or Facebook, etc. you get an extra chance to win!  Make sure you share/use the referrer link! By entering the giveaway you agree to the rules shown under the “ENTER” button

Participants will be contacted by email after subscribing, so by participating all entrants also accept us to email them. Do check your spam folder, but if you didn’t get an email you’re still entered. (Gmail addresses receive it slow/late! Don’t request us to check your entry)

The winner of the Element will be announced next Monday as usual. That means you have till Sunday evening to enter this JDS Labs giveaway!

    I live in a land far away but i love music and i have contacted JDSlabs several times when i was going go buy my first headphone amplifier. They provided me with the most honest cleanest answers i have ever received from a customer service team. I wanted to buy the jdslabs objective 2 for my HD6XX but unfortunately the shipping cost was too much for me. I still have the email with me and that gentleman who spoke to me is “John seaber”. If i could i would definitely love to own a product from jdslabs. I am sure these products are wonderful as jdslabs staff. All the best jdslabs, you guys are awesome.

    If I win this(lol, as if that’s possible), I’ll use it with my Zishan Z3(Modded). It’s a cheap chi-fi player, but once modded, it sound somewhere between Fiio X3iii and X5iii

    A good dac/amp is just what I need to improve my home music streaming. If I win, it’ll be a good excuse to upgrade speakers. And then rebuild the house.

    I finally got my stereo hooked up but I think that it was a big mistake. Maybe I am just getting older but the music some people listen to I think is just a little to much for me. I need to win these head phones, PLEASE!!!
