Fiddly to use!

ziggybass, 28.05.2018
Controls are too small. Its ok but to be honest I only used it for a day and I don't remember where I put it! Probably great for a person playing to themselves on a sofa

Misconstruction

06.06.2016
This headphone / exercise amp was a total disappointment.
--- In the event that my device was defective, Thomann can gladly take my criticism out again ---
But it is a mystery to me how such an antediluvian construction came into this assortment at all. Even half as expensive devices (such as: VOX amplug bass) come with a clear sound, meaningful size and practical features around the corner.

Starting with the headphone, which is completely indiscutable and looks like the earliest Walkman headphones from the 80s, one quickly comes to the fact that the complete execution was conceived decades ago.

The inner life just does not justify this large hard plastic box - however, the weight is quite low and thus on the belt or similar. Really useful.

The compressor, which is sold as a feature, can neither regulate nor influence anything, which in my opinion is a design fault. There is no controllable input and thus the problem that one must get the sometimes very different outputs of basses under one hat. So the limiter chops the signal so that the internal amp can not be exceeded in any case. The "pump" effect is clearly audible even in the case of a down-turned instrument.

The Aux-In is mono and alone disqualified this amp because a differentiated practice to any playback is only possible to a limited extent and as we said, we are talking about a device that costs just under 100, - Euro.

The sound of the instrument would be okay, if not, as I suspect, the "compressor" would bring a nice noise.

Finally, the battery compartment is mentioned, which can be opened with a small coin. If you have not already broken the case when you open it, you will get nervous at the latest when closing, because this cheap hard plastic is not so flexible that the cap can be easily re-pressed. You have to use quite a lot of leverage to spread the battery compartment so far that the cover hangs again.

As I said - I can not understand the positive reviews, but where one is already an opinion ;-)
If my device was actually defective, my text may be deleted. Unfortunately, this does not change the oversized and cheap housing, the lousy headphones and the price ...

Alternatively, I would like to pass on two recommendations which come from both the one and the other direction of the price scale:
- the already mentioned VOX Amplug Bass for 49, -
- the Phil Jones Big Head mobile for 199, - (my absolute recommendation!)
