    Rechargeable Mini Headphone Amplifier for Guitar - Tube Overdrive

    As a musician you know you need to practice regularly to hone your skills and learn new songs. However, you can't always break out the amps and crank up the volume. For those times when quiet is required, you can both practice and hear the amplified output from your instrument using this Rechargeable Mini Headphone Amplifier for Guitar from Monoprice!

    This amplifier is designed to provide amplification to the output of instrument level devices, such as electric guitars and bass guitars. It features a 1/4" TS plug, which plugs directly into your instrument's output. It is powered by an internal, rechargeable battery and has a 3.5mm TRS output for listening with headphones.

    An additional 3.5mm TRS auxiliary input is provided for connecting another audio source, such as an mp3 player. The audio from the Aux jack is mixed with the audio from the guitar so you can play along to an existing recording.

    This amplifier produces a "Tube Overdrive" sound with distortion and delay reminiscent of Classic Rock performances. The amplifier includes analog Gain, Tone, and Volume controls.

    Note: The distortion effect that this amplifier produces means that there will necessarily be some background hiss/noise, even at normal volume levels. If you listen to the amplifier without it being plugged into a guitar, the noise level can be loud and pronounced. However, when it is plugged into a guitar the signal returns to a desirable noise level for playing.

    Great Little Headphone Amp.
    I like this little amp. It sounds great (I have used earbuds for ipod and over the ear headphones, and it just sounds good). It is inexpensive (For 10 dollars, you can't beat it). It easy to control (from clean to distorted sound/bass to clean tone). Because of its small size (approximately 3" by 1.5"), you can take it anywhere.

    PROS: small size, inexpensive, sounds great, easy sound control

    CONS: none

    Works well good price
    Have used this headphone amp several times to practice. Works great. Makes practicing so easy no set up no wife complaining about the noise. You can play in the middle of the night while everyone is sleeping and you want to rock out !!

    PROS: Rechargeable, good sound, plenty of overdrive, aux in is great play a song on you phone into it and practice over top.

    CONS: None so far

    Better than I hoped
    Bought this on a whim and I really like it. I've only played through it for about an hour so far, but it's driven my earbuds and bigger sony cans equally well.

    PROS: Inexpensive, portable, great volume range

    CONS: none so far

    Fun, but...
    I really got a kick of this little unit...which so far, works great. I like the ease of controls with the gain and distortion. For my part the delay is fine but clearly this not a tricked out device, just a simple way to play your guitar without the fuss of anything other than a pair of headphones. I use it to practice licks while sitting around away from my little studio. My only concern is that the charge light seems very finicky...sometimes it comes on, sometimes it doesn't. hence, I can't tell if the unit is actually charging or not. Time will tell I guess.

    PROS: Cheap, easy to use and works as described.

    CONS: Not a hi-end device thus the low price (I paid about 12 bucks) as such it's hard to know how well or how long it might last.

    Nice, but the description isn't quite right
    The description indicates " sound with distortion and delay ", but there's no delay that I can perceive, which is a bummer because that's the only reason I bought it. I already have a Vox amPlug that pretty much does the same thing minus the rechargeable battery. But, it's inexpensive and sounds pretty darn good. They should change their description to remove the references to "delay".

    PROS: Sounds really good and very portable

    CONS: The 1/4" connection doesn't seem secure on some guitars

    Terrific sound - but a fatal flaw
    This little headphone amp has almost everything going for it - surprisingly terrific sound, lots of features (no idea how they crammed volume *and* gain *and* tone controls in there), built-in rechargeable battery. Would clearly be a 5* purchase at two or three times the price, and I'd love to write such a review. Except that the jack simply will not stay plugged in. As much as I want to love this thing, it's inconvenient and irritating to have to stop every 90 seconds to replug and reseat it. And from what I have read from other reviews, this is not a one-off QC issue, it's an inherent design defect. And I've yet to figure out an elegant workaround to keep it in. What a shame!

    The only caveat is that I have a tele with a recessed Electrosocket. Maybe you will have better luck with an LP-style guitars with a flush jack.

    PROS: Great sound
    Rechargeable battery
    Shockingly responsive (cleans up if you dial guitar down, breaks upif you slam the strings)
    Unbelievably small and affordable

    CONS: Will not stay connected to guitar

    Very nice but has an issue.
    This amp is very nice, even more so when compared to other brands at a much higher price. The 1/4" plug is 1/16" too short so it doesn't click all the way in the guitar. It works fine but will fall out with some movement. If it wasn't for this I would give 4 stars.

    PROS: Great sound for price. Rechargeable battery is very nice. AUX input is great for playing to music.

    CONS: 1/4" plug too short, Falls out.

    Good But
    This is a sweet little device but I have noticed that the 1/4" plug does not extend far enough to clip into the jack of the guitar, so the amp falls out.

    Disappointing even at the price
    Tried this headphone amp although I also have the clean headphone amp. Sampled on two guitars and two sets of headphones. No combination works with the Tube Overdrive unit. Any combination works with the Clean headphone amp. Disappointing. Just want to return it.

    PROS: None

    CONS: Does not work.

    Nothing but echo
    Well,
    I finally got around to testing this device as it was a lost stocking stuffer. Nothing but echo in this device so it is unusable. It was a great idea though
