Headphone Amp Comparison

Schiit Magnius vs Schiit Asgard

Schiit Magnius

The Magnius is an extremely affordable balanced headphone amp and pre-amp that punches way above its weight. At this price point, the Magnius is unrivaled for features.

$199.00 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.

8/10

Despite the slightly narrower soundstage that the Magnius tends to project, it is able to create a very tangible image.

[The Mangius] breaks the price/performance barrier for exceptional performance at budget pricing.
