Disappointed & broken
ohiaia - Alberto Falchi, 03.10.2020
I hat to give bad reviews but...

Now: it has last 2 days.
It was something I gave my kid to play his guitar and avoid him to use my mixer and stuff.

I guess I thought he broke it.
So I did not even think to call customer service.
I was just a bit sad with it.

Then Sunday comes and I had time to fool around.
Open it and find out what's wrong.
I was almost sure it was the headphone female jack that has broken.

4 screw later i found a cemetery of broken soldering points.

The female jack seems to have been already replaced as it's solder material was dirty and some dirty could be found on the board. The jack board port was gone. Hanging to the jack (internal) cable. Even the USB charge port fell apart like nothing as keeping it in place (I do not even had the time to try to use it to charge the battery)

Now: on my side it's not a really big deal, I'll ask my laboratory friend form work to solder here and there, offer him a pair of beers and cheers a few one myself too... and we are good to go. I guess not everybody is so lucky.

Great sound.
migpt, 08.07.2019
I loved this thing! Great sound! Too bad I stepped on it barefoot and the jack input (with phone jack inside) broke. I tried to open for repair but too much little plastics.
Later I acquired a Vox Classic Rock and tho I find the tone very good the HB Rockplug doesn't fall behind. The HB doesn't "color" the sound as the other (Vox sounds like a "through cabinet" with bass). It's a different type of OD of the Vox and the gain to the max sounds like distortion (ex. Nirvana).
You can use it with bass but it's not that good (the Vox sounds good on bass and has lot's of volume and boost - clean and OD).
But the biggest plus is the price and the rechargeable battery! It lasts for ages! I could play for days and days without recharging and then no need to buy batteries - and yes buying batteries is a major issue. Some folkes might say "and what if battery dies?" well my phone is 3years and every 2 days I charge it and it still goes on. Imagine 2 batteries per week minimum after 1 year the amount of money you'll spend! You can buy three or more HB Rockplug!
I'll be buying another next order for sure.

Absolutely in love with this little thing
AggyLuke, 29.01.2020
Bought this on a whim as I liked the idea and other reviews were good. I'd have never expected it to be executed as well as it is though! Just plug into the guitar, plug your headphones in and crank up the built in overdrive and then you can play for hours without annoying the wife or neighbours. Excellent little feature adding an AUX input on there, just plug in your phone or MP3 player and jam along to the track. I half expected the sound to be it bit muddy running both guitar and AUX through it but it was absolutely fine.

Pros

Price
Good sound
Compact
Great little gadget for travelling
Rechargeable
AUX input

Cons

Plastic construction - leave it on the floor and this will be in pieces with one misplaced foot.

It's cool small amplifier that allows you play and don't disturb other people, cool feature is that you can connect your phone or another device and play along with backing track. Lasts a long time without charging, only the of/on switch is maybe too tiny.

It doesn't sound great, but for the price it is ok. It might be too big to plug in for some guitars though

GlennV, 19.12.2020
I was in need of a way to practice silently and this product fits the job perfectly. The sound is nice clean and pretty good with some drive. You won't regret buying this. Good luck.

Gets the job done
Laros, 04.03.2020
This little amp is a cheap and effective solution for practicing quietly. No recording studio sound quality can be expected, but it is enough for practicing. Battery stays charged for quite a long time and is recharged very fast (30 minutes from dead to full charge).

All in all, very surprised
alex_v, 27.06.2018
I was expecting a buzzing like bee sound come out of my headphones when I plugged in, but it was not the case.

Lately I bought a 12-watt tube amp, which wakes the family up at night so I needed a small thing to try stuff in the middle of the night. I haven't tried more expensive ones(eg the Vox things) but this one is awesome! It sounds pretty good, both dirty and clean. The tone control can give you a lot of different sounds and tonal agility (just like it should).

The overall feeling is a bit cheap, but at 15 euros it feels great! A big plus is the rechargeable battery and indicator. You don't have to carry replacement batteries around, just your phone charger.

Great little plugin
Phase55, 22.06.2018
Bought this little unit to bring with me when I travel. Saves bringing a bulky amp with me for practicing. Did not expect much but was surprised how good the sound was when it arrived. I play through it into a good quality set of headphones and so that will make a huge difference to the sound output. Works great with my backing tracks from my mp3 player on the line in with no distortion on the track

Pros Well constructed
Great crunch sound ( without being over the top )
Good tight fit in my guitar jack socket
Great that it re-chargable

Cons Would prefer the controls on the front instead of the
bottom, but that is just a personal preference

For the price this is an excellent unit. I even tried plugging it in through a small PA system and it sounded great. i do not think anyone would be disappointed with this product for the price

Probably a nice product for a guitar! But don't buy it for a bass. I mean it works, but the sound is terrible. I could have known this haha.

Great value for money
dimmich, 27.02.2020
I bought this small amp to practice with headphones while the children sleep. It is also possible to connect it to the hifi system via the 3,5mm headphone-out and it has a range of tones from clean to distorted. I used the aux in to connect my smartphone for metronome and play along songs. I like this portability and flixibility.

A bargain
GuitarPerson, 13.05.2018
Perfect for practicing on guitar without annoying everyone around you! Has a dial for volume, gain and tone to get a variety of differing sounds. You can also connect an external audio player included 3.5mm cable to listen to backing-track while playing along.

It sounds good enough to practice with, so do not expect it to sound like a high-end tube amp. It does not have any FX like some of the more expensive mini headphone amplifiers.
But it is very good for the price.

Pros:
- Well constructed.
- Comes with a mini USB cable for charging and a short 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable.
- Recharges via USB

Cons:
- No FX such as chorus or reverb.

Does what its supposed to...
Steve Mc. , 07.01.2019
I am no expert. But, playing my new HB SC-550 through this little thing is fun. Its not complicated and only meant to be a practice tool, but it serves its purpose and keeps my family sane while I practice. For 15 euros, its a no brainer to simply throw in the guitar case.

LRguitar, 29.04.2019
Rockplug lasted 35 days from delivery and died.

I realize now I bought this product out of ignorance of what the market offers. If you need to use your guitar with minimal gear, don't waste your money with these commercial amplug (or whatever they call them) consider something like:

Mooer Radar
or Mooer Audiofile
or even a tiny multi effect board

high quality inexpensive products are readily available if you do your research, don't be fooled by "it's so damn cheap..."

PriitP, 06.04.2021
Bought it for the test and was quite surprised for the sound and sustain. Not too hissi and battery life is good also. You can use it with headphones but also turn some little battery speaker for little amp.
I kept it.

Teip Kcnissyur, 24.03.2020
I'm really happy with this little amp. Only downside is that the distortion kicks in as soon as you turn up the gain. It could have been a little bit more progressive.

Very surprised.
Mikatile, 23.07.2018
When I first plugged this device in I was expecting a thin crunchy tone without much variation, I was wrong. The tone is surprisingly good, it's very rich from a clean sound to a bluesy crunch, through to hard rock. The unit feels sturdy and compact and comes with an internal rechargeable battery. My one criticism is that on a clean sound it loses a little volume, but this is a minor criticism. For this money, you would be hard pushed to find anything of this quality, and indeed exceeds products on the market with a much higher price tag. If you want an inexpensive, good quality practice tool, buy this!

Good for practice
Christos M., 12.02.2019
Not the best guitar tone you'll ever hear, but you get what you pay for.

A feature I do not enjoy is that it doesn't work as a clean headphone amp (volume only). You must turn the gain up even a little bit in order to hear anything.

Jfkph, 12.04.2018
Nice little pug for practicing when everyone is in bed. Nice sound when the gain is turned up but offers only a very low clean sound. Good for late night practice.

Really nice little headphone amp, the USB charging is a real bonus and is something my Vox amplug doesn't have.
Good value for money and ideal if you want to get your guitar out late at night when your neighbours are asleep :)

Levy, 24.01.2018
Very useful for silent practicing. It didn't work good for bass guitar (low output) but excellent for e.guitars. I specially liked that you can just charge it... It almost costs like a rechargable battery you would need for more than double priced amplug :) guitar players, go ahead and buy one :)
