APOS Audio & Headfonia Christmas Giveaway

Not so long ago we gave away a Feliks Audio Elise tube headphone amp, and we’re back already with a new prize draw!

This time for Christmas we’ve partnered up with APOS Audio and we together are giving you the opportunity to win the Topping A50s headphone amplifier. The link to the entry form can be found at the bottom of this article. Good luck!

Topping A50s

About Topping

Topping is a Chinese company that makes all sorts of audio products. Their portfolio stretches from portable DAC/AMPS to desktop sized electronics. Topping has been founded in 2008 and has been on somewhat of a purple patch of late when it comes to bringing an impressive range of both digital and analogue gear to market.

In the past couple of years alone, they’ve released a range of DACs, amps, and hybrid units that have impressed both our review team as well as the personal audio community at large with thoroughly well-packaged products that combine performance and thoughtful design with extremely sharp pricing.

You can find the Topping website here and their A50s page is here.

Topping A50s

The Topping A50s Amplifier

The Topping A50s is one of Topping’s latest headphone Amplifiers. It’s also a pre-amplifier with NFCA Module.  The A50s according to Topping brings a precise, detailed and musical restitution with a near-Zero-Ohm output impedance.

Don’t Look Down

With a THD+N of 0.00007% and SNR of 143dB, the TOPPING A50s’ noise floor is so far down you might get dizzy. Compare this to the original A50, which has a THD+N of <0.0004% and an SNR of 123dB.

The Power Hitter

The TOPPING A50s swings for the fences with its output power, driving a whopping 3,500W x2 @32Ω (more than 1,000mW more powerful than the A50). With that sort of power, you can drive anything from sensitive IEMs to power demanding headphones.

6.35 Single-Ended and 4.4 Balanced Outs

The A50s offers both a 6.35 single-ended and a 4.4 balanced out on its front plate. Both options deliver stellar dynamic range (138dB/144dB) and output impedance (<0.1Ω/0.2Ω).

High-Low Gain Setting

Drive high impedance headphones with ease thanks to the A50s’ high-low gain setting of 0dB/6dB at the SE output and 6dB/12dB at the balanced output.

Topping A50s

Winner

The lucky winner will get his/her unit shipped directly by APOS Audio. APOS Audio will cover the shipping fee of the Topping A50s amplifier to you but neither Headfonia or APOS Audio 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. APOS Audio 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 not accepted) + real email address as this is the address we will use to send your entry confirmation and to contact the winner.
  • Leave a comment on this post you’re reading here. Any comment is good but I prefer you telling me why you want to win this amp.

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

The winner will be chosen at random out of those that completed all 2 steps! By sharing your personal entry link, you can add extra credits to win the amplifier, so share away! (link will shop up after you entered the contest)

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 Topping A50s headphone amplifier will be announced on Friday January 8. And you have till Wednesday January 6 at midnight to enter this Topping A50s giveaway!

    I’ve been interested in getting my first desktop headphone amp, but am confused by all the options. This would be a great way to start down the path of higher end headphone audio.

    • December 24, 2020

      Shanker Paarey

      Always have wanted to try Topping products and since I’m in the market for an amp, I think this would be amazing. The excellent reviews really helped me seal my choice as well.

      • December 26, 2020

        Yes! Happy to win prize for use it with my akg712pro… Good luck!

      Hi. I’ m entering this giveaway since I would love to win this outstanding amp. I have a small child, so when she is asleep, I go for my headphones and have some dad time with good music. The topping a50s amp is my dream amp but having a small child is not cheap and it’s price is out of reach for me. Maybe I can replace my used 40 dollar amp.:)

  • December 24, 2020

    Wills Chiu

    I have always been a portable, IEM type of listener. However in 2020, I have to stay at home for a long period so I was tempted to get myself my first full sized setup. If I get the A50s, I will be able to use it as my first dedicated amp for my headphones in the future.

    • December 24, 2020

      Josip Klinc

      Ok, I had the SMSL SP200 and recently tried Topping L30 and was simply amazed by it. Such a nice device in small package. Would like to try this one, since it has balanced connection ^^

      • December 26, 2020

        Rizqi Angga

        I already mark this amp to my wishlist for a few months,,

        I wish the dreams come true

      • January 2, 2021

        Andrew Wong

        Thanks for the opportunity. I love Topping products and have heard nothing but amazing things about this amp. I already have a D50s so the A50s would match perfectly. Happy Holidays!

  • December 24, 2020

    Phong Ngo

    90% of my listening is done on IEMs, but I have a decent collection of full-sized headphones & this setup would be a great way to tip the scales & balance out those listening sessions. Good luck to everyone & enjoy your holidays! 2020 hasn’t been a great year, but music is forever!

    • December 24, 2020

      Daynerom Decano

      I have the D50s. I recently acquired it second hand and still under warranty. I expected it to be bigger but the compact size and elegant geomatry make a lot of sense. Have it toslink from my ZXR soundcard, the performance is beyond my expectations. DAC is detailed and I hear nuances never revealed prior to this performer. I have chained to my Lake People g-109a amp and they are a great couple. I am planning to acquire a P50 to compliment the DAC’s perfromance. I am hoping to complete the set with the A50. I do appreciate your insight. Happy Holidays!

    I only ever had portable amp. So, I hope I can get this as my first desktop amp.

  • December 24, 2020

    Geoffrey Alter

    I have been interested in owning a Topping Amp for awhile. I keep vacillating over which to get. This would be a great entry into their stuff and hopefully lead to many more Topping purchases.

    I am curious about the Topping aproach to headphone amping, yet little reluctant to pull the trigger on A90. Maybe this will change my mind?
    Merry Christmas!

    Jacey Menzies Ong

    I’m really interested in the A50s as my first desktop amplifier – it’s got great objective and subjective reviews, and it would be the perfect step-up in sound quality and power output, especially for my full-sized headphones.

    I was interested in the extremely low output impedance. I think it would help me improve the control of my IEMs.

    ALDY HAEKAL PINASTI

    I really want this amp because I need something to drive my old planar magnetic headphones.
    I have Fostex T50RP and working to custom some T20RP and some old Yamaha HP-50.

    Back then, I have some Burson Soloist to do the job. But because of financial issues, I had to sell it. Now I just use Alo Rx Mk3b to drive my old planars. Yeah, barely sounding, not even close to decent.
    It would be a very nice present for me to win this amp. I still love my old planars and it will be nice to hear them with a proper amp again.

    Thank you.

    I’m a sucker for anything made out of aluminium, however you happen to pronounce it. I have a pair of the Philips X2HR which I think will kick in with a piece of gear like this. This amp would top my current set up. Let’s get Topping!

    Bruce Shipman

    I’ve got a lot of head gear – items and headphones – for cycling and running, swimming, walking, warm weather, cold weather options, headphones for a guitar amp and piano, TV computer, the house is full of stuff. I think a couple of pairs of big fat open back headphones I have might really benefit from a headphone amp. This would be my first!

    Good gear at a decent price. Things move so quickly these days I’d rather regularly upgrade and stay ahead of pricey obsolescence. I toyed with the predecessor of this model but spent a lot on wireless headphones instead. I still have some good ole wired models I can dust down. This Topping will breathe new life into them.

    I was previously so ‘outwardly mobile’ but I have spent a year tied to my desk working at home. I have a 3TB hard disc of music running thru my PC but I just know an amp/dac addition will turbo charge performance. My headphones deserve this!

    Time to break out Kind of Blue & Dark Side of the Moon again. Ha Ha. Astral Weeks and The Prodigy, whatever. I’m very curious to hear how this kind of amp ramps up my headphone collection. Thank-you for the chance!

    I got exactly what I wanted for Christmas – a very special super pair of Hifiman HE400i.

    Question – will this amp supercharge my sonic delight!?

    I’d like to give it a try!

    Would be a perfect start to a desktop stack!

    Might need to get something harder to drive than a pair of m50’s to go with it though!

    Hi, I just recently purchased Topping E30 and I haven’t got any amp to paor with yet. I plan to get HD6XX and this is just a perfect time for this giveaway during festive season. I want to know how is it performed.

    I am working with custom Lime Ears ModelX and I am very, super, happy for their precision and sharpness. But I now need a proper amplifier.

    I was just given a Senn HD650, which is known to be power hungry, and I’m looking for a new amp that can drive it properly.

    Maybe I’ll be the lucky one!

    Cheers.

    It would be a great starting point for my upgrade to desktop setup considering its insane low noise floor and high power output. Would definitely make my iems and headphone come alive.

    I am amp curious. I have not tried a headphone amp and I am very interested in how different a sound it would create. More and more I am listening to music at my desk through my PC. My old hifi stack is gathering dusk. My big old speakers are pretty dormant. My Sennheiser HD 600 are waiting to experiment.

    I really would like to try out some planar magnetic headphones, but my DAP won’t power them and I don’t have a small desktop amp… the Topping 50 looks to be ideal.

  • December 29, 2020

    Sue Jones

    I was impressed when I tried out my headphones – Shure SRH840 – with a friend’s headphone amp. I have been shopping around, checking Headfonia, the best review site out there, no really, I mean that, and I’ve been doing my best to nerd up on the topic. Well, then this happened. I’ve pressed pause as this would solve my problems, for now.

    I have some wired headphones and am intrigued by the possibilities of hooking them up with a Topping Amplifier. I have a Topping BC3. I converted my speakers to Bluetooth with it. It works very well. Test driving this amp would be fun.

    I got a great discount on a Sundara headset. Hifiman have some madly expensive models but I was delighted to get a good entry model at a great price. They are planar magnetic crying out for a boost from a headphone amp. If I win this I can divert my budget towards a new guitar amp. Help out a budding audiophile and a budding, busking musician.

    Would love to win this unit. I’ve never had a headphone amp before. Just DAC/HPA combos, or receivers/integrated amps with headphone jacks. Really curious to hear the difference. None of mine are anything special. So I’m sure this will be a big upgrade. I am also loving that it has a high, and low gain, because right now my best pair is an iem (Blon 03, foam tips, upgraded cord). But I’m looking at getting the Meze 99 Classic headphones really soon. And with this unit I’ll be able to use both without compromise. Which should be very sweet. Thank you guys. Good luck to everyone who enters. Bless you all. ✌️

    It’s a welcome trend, specs improve while prices fall. Better gear at lower prices has allowed me to get a lot of interesting gadgets including several pairs of headphones, a couple of which would perform better with a headphone amp.

  • December 30, 2020

    Crazy specs, most of it is impressively dazzling though I don’t understand the most of it, then I don’t understand almost all everyday modern tech. The two gain settings look handy, as well as pre-amp mode, seems like I can use this with multiple earphones and devices. The proof is in the pudding. I just need to get my hands on the pudding.

    A long time I was lucky enough to be able to use a Beyerdynamic A1for a few weeks. I was impressed but it was over my budget. I seem to have gathered quite a collection of headphones over the years and this new Topping looks just the ticket to get back on board with headphones amps.

    Amazing to think that all this hi spec new tech is used to listen to my favourite album that was recorded in 1959. Then again, I’ve got the SACD and DSD, Hi Res versions of that too. It’s all part of the fun, pushing the invisible envelope.

    I wonder how this would sound with a pair of HiFiMan HE1000 V2 – no, I don’t own them. But I do have a humble pair of HE1000 V2.

    Ever since the A50 come out with the D50s I was interested. Thought I’d wait for the A50s first to compliment the D50s but didn’t know it’d take them nearly a year to start selling it.
    Also Zeos pretty much gave it the thumbs up so it’d definitely be a good win.
    Either way winning the A50s would be a dream come true and I’d just need to buy the matching D50s.

    I have lots of music sources, old and new, and quite a few iem and headphones, but these days I mostly use my computer at my desk to listen to music with wired Sennheiser 560 headphones, largely for the fit and comfort. If my computer is busy with multiple tasks the music can skip and pop so I would like to try rerouting through a headphone amp like this Topping to tighten things up. That’s why I would like to win this this item. Kudos to Headfonia, Apos and Topping. Have a great New Year.

    I am looking for the promised “significant, audible improvement in clarity, detail and dynamics”. that a headphone amp can provide.

    ! If this is a must have gadget, I must have it !

    ! Thank-you for the opportunity !

    Will this amp make my ATH-M50x even better?

    If so, I am all in for a Topping amp

    Happy New Year to you

    I have neglected headphone amps and have just made do with portable sources. These days I am working from home four days a week and am able to enjoy music most of the day with headphones. I think this amp would upgrade my setup and help me kick back and relax, I mean work, better. 😁 💻 🎧

    I love speakers, and will take a big fat pair of speakers on room stands over headphones any day, except these days. We are not alone. With my wife and I both working at home and a child in the house my music is quarantined to headphones only. I am eager to try this Topping amp to find out if the rumours are true that a headphone amp can really ramp up the sound experience of headphones.

    I had a Cyrus Sound Key and now I can’t find it. I have turned my bags and pockets inside out, upside down and it’s driving me mad. I suspect it slipped out of my pocket or out of my bag on the train or something. Grrrr…..

    Winning a brand new shiny amp would return balance to the universe and restore my faith in karma.

    Who knows it may even be an improvement in sound.

    It will sit safely on my desk and we will never part company.

    The never ending circle of need. I see, I want, I get, I hear, I like. I want more. You could help me keep up with my daily dose of music and tech.

    I’m ready and willing to give it a whirl. It gives top performance at a very good price – just a few visits to Starbucks.The headphone amp/pre-amp function is handy. As well as the standard 1/4 headphone socket there is a balanced 4.4 mm. It has little noise in low high gain. It can pump high power with exceptionally low distortion. You don’t have to shell out a lot of dollars to get a solid amp. Nice job Topping. Hey, thank-you for the introduction, APOS looks like a good store. Oh, and Headfonia, you are always top of my favourites.

    One question – what does APOS stand for?

    When money’s tight, and is hard to get,
    And your horse has also ran,
    When all you have is a heap of debt,
    A Topping amp is your only man.

    Apologies to Flann O’Brien

    Tis a good amp, I’ll give it a good home.
    Though I’ll work it pretty hard.

    You’ll find me at the end of a very long balanced cable, far end of the room. 🌞

    This would be a first, and a fine upgrade to my current music setup. If I strike lucky, I will celebrate with (another) pair of headphones and a large glass of lemonade. Yup, it’s January, I’m off the sauce.

    I’ve read some reviews – this is a good amp with impressive specs from a cool brand. I’m happy to lend you my ears.

    Can I stop researching and window shopping headphone amps now? It’s confusing but fun but exhausting. Give me a break! Hey headphones, all I wanna do is get the best out of you.

    I have great headphones with a long cable so I can move about a bit in my sound cave.

    I think this amp will up my sound quality and volume without busting my ears.

    Ω Ohmmmmmmmmm………..

    My beyerdynamic DT 770 / 80 version headphones might benefit from a little Topping up – a little boost to help them reach the parts other headphones cannot reach.

    Ruth Jenkins

    I was about to pull the trigger on a Fiio K3 Dac / headphone amp but I would much prefer this Topping!

    I will hold off and hold my breath and wait and see what happens!

    This is exciting!

    Thanks for the chance!

    I have medium high impedance headphones, this amp might up their performance. I like the pre-amp mode and little things like the outputs placed on the front, none of that fumbling around in the dark. It’s a cutting edge piece of gear, and we have to keep up with the Jones’. I’m refining and upgrading my music components and trying to get the most out of a limited budget. None of those Bentley luxury headphones for me. Brother, can you spare a headphone amp?

    I have the Topping NX4, and my next wishlist is the DAC and AMP combo from topping,
    A50/D50

    No music. No life.
    We gotta evolve and adapt.
    I’m happy with vinyl and mono.
    But we gotta move with the times.
    I’ve shed my CDs but I don’t stream, these days I’m all flac files.
    Sometimes headphones, sometimes speakers.
    This headphone amp would help me make the most out of my desktop music.
    Thanks for the chance and running a very entertaining, informative website.
    Happy New Year Headfonia, Apos and Topping.

    I’m looking to get an amp for my incoming ATH-R70X with a 99db sensitivity and 470ohms impedance, this amp can surely power it!

    Just saw the measurement on ASR, damn dude it has a pretty good one, would love to have one of this, paired with the d50s would be a nice stack.

  • January 6, 2021

    This is something new for me. Adding a headphone amp will allow me to upgrade to a serious big set of closed back high performance headphones. I spend so much time at my desk and avoid disturbing others. High quality music and big comfortable over the ear headphones are a necessary luxury. As well as listening to all sorts of music I record and play around with bandcamp’s Cakewalk, a looper pedal, drum software and my guitar. Winning this amp would be a welcome piece in the jigsaw to help build a great music setup.

  • January 6, 2021

    Michal Sedivy

    This will be my first desktop lsize headphone DAC/AMP for my higher impedance Sennheiser headphones I have.
    Also I’ve never heard about this company before and consider they have 30 days return policy, two years warranty and free shipping they must be confident products they are making are good. So I am looking forward for my Christmas gift only a few days delayed 🙂

    Thank you Santa.

    It would go lovely with my new DCA Aeon RT Closed 🙂

    My first amp in a while if I win.

    Every bit helps in building a good system. Trial and error, upgrades and inevitable wrong turns. It’s rather outrageous but I’d like to win this to run a pair of Byer Dynamic 250 ohm headphones, partly for the availability of a three meter long coiled cable that will reach from my desk to the sofa!

    I just came back to this hobby after 2-3 years, found fostex th900 in low price in the local audio group and bought it without hesitation. Now I realize that I need good amp for this headphone, so it will be a fortune for me if i win this topping Amps to be pair with my fostex

    Topping is one of those companies creating great equipment at a reasonable price, Apos is delivering it worldwide in a very reassuring manner and Headfonia is spreading the good word. Hallelujah! To win a free amp is a fabulous leg up on the audiophile ladder. We are all reaching for better audio quality. Good luck. Hope it’s me.

    Butch Patchell

    My musical preferences are far different than my wife’s. It is uncommon for her to say anything positive about the music I prefer. The only time I am able to listen to music on my main system is when she’s not at home. Not too long ago, I purchased a headphone DAC/amp so that I could listen without disturbing her. Now she wants a DAC/AMP of her own. Should I be lucky enough to win this giveaway, I could afford to buy her some decent headphones and she can have my current headphone amp whilst I enjoy the my new Topping setup. We’d both be happy!

    if I win this amp I just need to saving money for topping D50s and P50

  • January 6, 2021

    Timo Franzen

    I am looking for an upgrade for my set up at the office. I am swapping headphones regularly to get the chance to listen to different flavors. As this amp has enough power to drive them all and it’s relative small form factor make it ideal for that.
    Fingers crossed.

    I’ve been using an entry level Schiit stack for a while and really enjoying the headphone world (previously into loud speakers). As I continue to dive into the audiophile of headphones, Topping always comes to the top of the list and the reviews on Headfonia.com are nothing but stellar.

    I’ve polished a spot on my desk in anticipation of striking gold.
    I think this powerful amp and a DAC will help my music flow smoothly from my desktop to my Hifiman HE400i.
