Nice piece of kit when used properly
Happy Jack, 05.10.2015
Superb design & build, with deliberately minimal functionality for better focus. Treated purely and simply as a headphone amplifier, this is a nice enough box and it does the job without much of a WOW factor. Headroom is fairly limited but there's less risk of doing permanent damage to your ears.

Having both a Gain and a Volume control is fascinating, and I often fiddle with the settings when changing from one band to another. To use this properly, though, is to use it as a practice tool for playing along (on bass, usually) silently with your favourite music.

That brings into play the very simple EQ provided for your instrument input, which in turn reminds you that the amp comes with a short microjack --> 1/4" input cable. If you just want to listen to music and not plug a bass in, then simply connect your mp3 source to the instrument input. You now have both Gain & Volume as before, but also full EQ on the music. Of course, that also gives you more headroom ...

One other nice touch is that there is a permanent indicator for the built-in rechargeable battery, making irritating power outages far less likely.

For something that will fit very comfortably in any jacket pocket, this is definitely a nice thing to have.

Just wow
Daniman, 23.05.2018
I was searching for a portable headphone amplifier for my jam-along training sessions and ended up with a beast of a miniature amplifier which can handle every type of PC/Mac connection with no hassle. A sturdy, beautiful, piece of hi-fi technology. Used with my AKG Studio headphones I can hear anything but the sole bass voice. It definetely worths the higher price.
