Most solid state amps for phones don't come close to a good tube amp. Everyone who uses headphones should have a dedicated tube headphone amplifier with its own high-quality volume control and OPTs. Not cheap to implement, but well worth it.
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
Because of the high input Z of most headphones, I don't see why you need no stinkin' output transformer. Futterman once made such a product. Transcendent and Berning may make them now. (Which on this Asylum means that one could build one.)
I've heard the Futterman headphone amplifier, and it was astonishingly good.
I'm glad you said most. The Sheldon Stokes headphone amp does not sound like "typical sand". Surprise ( not ), the "finals" are FETs.
