This can be warm if worn for extended time (1 hr or so). The overdriven sound is OK, but the controls are minuscule, and cannot in practice be adjusted while wearing the headphone. The build quality could be improved.

Very touch responsive with decent sound

At minimum gain you can only get clean sounds with low output vintage Strat pickups, but it sounds good. No problem getting bluesy overdrive when you turn on the gain with the Strat, and a Les Paul immediately starts to overdrive due to the higher output pickups. At really high gain it gets scooped for a modern metal sound, while in the middle of the gain range it sounds more Marshally with good touch sensitive crunch. Effects are basic but sound good. The cord is too thin, so I don't know if it will last, and the control dials are a little difficult to operate while you are wearing it. I tried the AC30 and Twin versions, and this one was the most flexible since you can treat it as a non-master volume amp and turn down the guitar volume to get clean sounds, yet it goes to crazy high gain at the other extreme.
