Middlesex, NJ, United States, 2010/01/11 - Two new models expand the Sound Shocker line of totally passive pre-amplifiers. Intended to boost the volume of any headphone output, Sound Shocker converts a headphone output to a line level output compatible with most stereo system.
Very few portable players include a headphone output with enough volume to be useable with the AUX input of most stereos. All of the Sound Shockers solve that problem by providing a fixed gain of approximately +20dB. This means that the headphone output of a player, phone, laptop, etc. will sound about 4 times louder for the same volume setting when connected to the AUX input of your stereo. All this with NO Batteries, NO Switches, just Plug-and-Play.
The complete Sound Shocker line up now includes:
Sound Shocker ™ The original.
Headphone audio preamp for use with most car and home audio systems. This model provides +18dB of gain, a useable bandwidth of 40Hz to >20KH, with standard 3.5mm stereo jacks for input and output. Standard stereo 3.5mm M-M cables are typically used however, other cables with 2.5mm plugs or RCA plugs are readily available for your specific needs.
Sound Shocker II ™ is a cable version of the original.
It has the same gain of about +18dB, a useable bandwidth of 40Hz to >20KHz, however it is built into a 5’ cable with a 1/8” (3.5mm) plug on each end. This makes it very convenient for those on the go. Simply replace the cable that connects the player to the AUX input with Sound Shocker II and the player will seem 4 times louder for the same volume setting.
Sound Shocker Pro ™ is the big brother of the original.
Custom designed magnetics are used to enhance the listening experience. It measures slightly larger at 2.5” x 3.5” x 1”, has a gain of +20dB, and a bandwidth of -0.5dB 20Hz to 20KHz. The ultra flat bandwidth of this model makes it the preferred choice for use with premium sound systems.
