Headphone Amp Comparison

Schiit Magni Heresy vs Schiit Asgard

Schiit Magni Heresy

Magni Heresy raises the bar even higher for affordable headphone amps, with by far the highest output power in their price class–at least 200% higher than any competitor. At the same time, they provide the cleanest measured performance of any Magni, ever.

$99.00 MSRP

Schiit Asgard

Asgard 3 is a highly powerful, highly affordable, modular headphone amp and preamp that gives you a complete, single-box solution for all your desktop needs. It’s a re-thinking of the headphone amp that started it all (for Schiit, anyway—the original Asgard, introduced in June 2010, was our first product.) Asgard 3 features our unique Continuity™ topology that extends the benefits of Class A output, and accepts all the same modules as Jotunheim and Lyr 3.

The Magni 3+ is also very competent amplifier and subjectively kept up with Heresy.
