Tube or solid state?
How much do you want to spend?
Bottlehead Crack is a good headphone amp, IMO and has good instructions.

You won't save much by buying a 'kit' vs a built version if you are looking at the cheaper solid state HP amps, and with the 'ready to use' amps you have some warranty protection.

Cruise over to head-fi and you will have reading for weeks...

i'm not entirely qualified to answer the kit or type but i will say that unless you can solder and have a semi decent iron then i would start by learning to solder first. saying that i use a £14 temp adjustable one i got off ebay and it does the job just dandy but i can also weld and braze.

i was told recently to build a cmoy amp as it would help me understand things a bit better. How to Build the CMoy Pocket Amplifier

or you can do this as you don't even need a circuit board DIY Enthusiast Discussion Thread - DIY AMPS, Custom Cables & More - Page 83 - www.hardwarezone.com.sg

Looks like you should be able to assemble it ok. Get some 63/37 solder (eutectic) and a wet sponge for your iron.
It seems to say that some(?) of the parts are used, that may be why the price is low.
