That's a tube amp so it's different from the O2 and Magni.

 

It's good for the price if you want a tubey sound though, he's a quick conclusion from a review:

Quote:
Erm… It is good sounding and cheap, powerful and simple. The tube valve is not that expensive,you can change to better electronic components and tube valve every time you are not satisfied how it sound (albeit this will cost more), but personally I think that chnge to any tube valve will sound better than the on board Shuguang 12AU7 (Never have real world experience anyway). You can easily mod it as well, grounding is not a problem if you have some electronic or soldering skill, modifying method is easy to find on the internet. Mosfet and capacitor is easily available in local electronic store, but DO MAKE SURE ELECTRONIC COMPONENT THAT YOU BOUGHT IS SUITABLE AND CORRECT before soldering it, but if you are expecting too much from this tube headphone amplifier, you will definitely disappointed, I apologise but I can’t get butter silk smooth sound, summer lovely warm sound, candy honey sweet vocal, big and fat sound, and beautiful distortion V2, but most probably,it is because of the tube valve. It is good and musical,if you can’t accept how tube amp sound or the flaw, you should probably look elsewhere, but with the price and performance ratio, I have no problem to recommend this tube headphone amplifier to you.

I don't see the justification of a headphone amp with those headphones.

You're better off upgrading the headphones or soundcard with the cash.
That's money far better spent.
