Simple 2 Transistor Headphone Amplifier


Posted on Feb 7, 2014    5177

This is the schematic diagram of very simple headphone amplifier circuit. The circuit built using two NPN transistors. You can use transistor BC549C or other NPN transistors such as European equivalent: BC548C, BC547C, BC239, 2N5818 or 2N2222 An audio amplifier is an electronic amplifier that amplifies low-power audio signals (signals composed pri

marily of frequencies between 20 - 20 000 Hz, the human range of hearing) to a level suitable for driving loudspeakers and is the final stage in a typical audio playback chain. The preceding stages in such a chain are low power audio amplifiers which perform tasks like pre-amplification, equalization, tone control, mixing/effects, or audio sources like record players, CD players, and cassette players. Most audio amplifiers require these low-level inputs to adhere to line levels. While the input signal to an audio amplifier may measure only a few hundred microwatts, its output may be tens, hundreds, or thousands of watts. More explanation about power audio amplifier can be found at wikipedia. org This is a video tutorial about how to a very simple audio amplifier based on the LM386 amplifier chip. It can be built for less than $20 (or might be less than $8 in some countries) and used to amplify any low level audio signal including a guitar, bass or mp3 player.
