The amplifier is powered by the included 12 VDC/500mA AC adapter.

Pretty OK headphone amp

Pros: Great price, solid build, simple, small.

Cons: Volume levels aren't exactly independent, some bleed, some noise.

For $30 it does what it's supposed to. If you need to push 4 sets of headphones, this will do the trick. If you're looking for pristine, crystal clear audio, this is not the headphone amp for you. I use it in my home studio, and it's great for pushing headphone mixes to multiple musicians. However, I wouldn't recommend using it for critical listening.

Pros: Excellent value, plenty of power, reasonably durable

Cons: None experienced

Solid little 4 channel headphone amp. I've only tested with 1/4" TRS in, but haven't experienced the crosstalk that other reviewers have complained of, even at mixed hi/low/silent volumes. I've also used this with different loads (some 600O studio cans, some 25-50O) and though the 600O load is certainly noticeably quieter, it's still plenty of volume for recording monitoring purposes.

Not terrible but definitely not that good

Pros: Small, not expensive, easy to use

Cons: Signal bleed from channel 1 to other channels, also the more you turn up channel 1, it adds bass and distortion to the other channels. Plus it's very dirty sounding, very noisy. Also feels cheap, like you could easily over-turn the knobs

I guess technically speaking, it works. It just doesn't work very well and even at $30, it should be better quality than it is. Sure I could go buy a used Behringer headphone amp for less than $100, but if monoprice is going to offer this for $30, I figured I would give it a shot. One less rack space to take up.

Beware: Channel bleed!

Pros: Well built. Different input types. Headphone jacks are on the front.

Cons: Channel bleed!

If you have audio running into the unit, and more than one set of headphones plugged in, you can hear audio bleed into another set of headphones when the volume knob is turned ALL THE WAY DOWN! Monoprice claimed that this was a defective unit. I was skeptical and followed their advice to do an RMA. The second unit arrived with the same issue. They again claimed this was a defective unit. They would not listen that THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW, not an issue with individual units. If the volume is turned down on that headphone channel, NO SOUND SHOULD COME OUT! The point of having four individual volume knobs is to adjust the volume individually i.e. one volume knob shouldn't affect the others. Beware of this channel bled defect!

Good unit, but with a crosstalk issue

Pros: Inexpensive, solidly built metal case, good solid sound, drives headphones better than computer or phone audio out..

Cons: Cross talk between headphone outputs. Great for the price, though.

Nice unit for the price. the only downside I can see is that multiple headsets are connected and you turn down the set you are listening to, you still get a lower volume signal to your phones that sounds similar to a subwoofer running by itself. I am guessing that this is because the four knobs control the output of a single amplifier, but I am not sure, since I haven't opened it up or looked at a schematic.
Bottom line: For the low price this is a great deal. Just be aware of the cross talk issue.
