    Rechargeable Mini Headphone Amplifier for Guitar - Acoustic

    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 clean "Acoustic" sound reminiscent of an acoustic guitar performance. The amplifier includes analog Blend, Tone, and Volume controls.

    Great sounding practice amp
    Nice little unit that I've been using consistently since I bought it a few months ago. I plug it into my bass and use it to learn songs and rehearse prior to band rehearsals and gigs. I like not running through batteries and the charge seems to last long enough (approx 2 hrs). When it dies, that tells me that I need a break anyway, so no problems there. To reduce cables, I've attached one of those thin square rechargeable bluetooth receivers to the back of it that pairs with my music source, so now I can walk around and practice my jumps, kicks and splits like a real rock star (JK). On the down side, I will echo others in saying that the 1/4" plug is a tad too short as I had problems with it regularly dropping out of my bass during normal use. That bugged me so much that I decided to open it up and do a little surgery (and I know, void the warranty) to move the plug out a little then glue it all back together. I was successful in doing that and now it stays in my bass. For the price it was worth taking the risk IMO. That issue aside, it sounds great and does a great job. The acoustic effect is not really prevalent, so don't buy it for this feature alone. I wanted a clean sound which is what this delivers. Overall I recommend it and will buy another when this wears out. Definitely worth buying one yourself, so what are you waiting for? Buy it!

    PROS: Sound - Good volume, clean tone. Aux signal volume is not adjustable but you adjust that at the source.
    Features - Mixes your instrument signal with an external music source, a must-have for me.
    Build Quality - Solid build, all controls work and has been reliable for the four or five months I've used it.
    Compact - Lightweight, thin and doesn't look like the cheaper units out there.
    Rechargeable - I don't go through AA's anymore. Yes!
    Price - Can't beat it. For around $10, just buy it!

    CONS: Few issues here except for the too short 1/4 inch plug being the major drawback. Seems like this is a design issue which hopefully someone will address in future versions. Otherwise an excellent solution to practicing silently to an external source.
    USB connection is a mini USB, not micro which is more popular today, but that's not really an issue.
    Acoustic effect makes almost no difference. I honestly can't tell whether it's on or off. No matter to me anyway.
    Excessive hiss when turned up near max volume, but is very clean at usable volume levels. This is to be expected with a unit at this price and hasn't impacted my use of this item at all.
    Charge could last a little longer, but I don't practice all day anyway. If that turns into a real problem, I'll just buy another one and trade off.

    Works OK, some shortcomings
    I have a traveler uke with a piezo pickup. Because of the impedance of the pickup, a lot of things don't work too well, but this woks great with standard headphones or computer speakers. I don't really know what the FX position is for, or how well it worksthere's absolutely no documentationbut it sounds good in the regular position. (and anyway, heavily distorted ukes aren't really a thing, or at least not my thing).

    PROS: Rechargeable. Inexpensive. Has more than enough volume (for me anyway). Sounds good.

    CONS: 1/4 jack is about .1" short, so it may not stay in. It stays in my uke, but not an extension cable.

    Headphone jack can be a bit fussy: It worked fine with two headsets, but the other one didn't stay in contact.

    Absolutely no documentation.

    Hi Doug,

    Thank you for your review. Regarding your FX inquiry, you can use the FX switch to add an acoustic effect to the sound of your guitar. Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact us! Hope this helps!

    Volume levels allow you to hear both the instrument and music source clearly. I'm using it to practice on my Schecter Stiletto 5-string bass. Recently I've been plugging the aux source into the headphone jack of my desktop and playing the music with iTunes. Relieves my fear of knocking my iPhone off of the music stand and cracking it. In order to keep the device from slipping out of the 1/4" instrument jack, I drape the aux cable in between the guitar body and strap to keep tension on it. It seems the weight of the cables is enough to pull the amp out of the jack. My guitar cable fits in the jack nice and tight, so it must be the mini-amp's plug that is a little thin. Very pleased with it overall.

    PROS: Ample volume, battery holds a charge well, aux input

    CONS: 1/4" plug too loose

    Great little headphone amp!
    Great little practice headphone amp for the money! I personally use it mostly for bass and it works/sounds great!

    PROS: Sounds great for acoustic guitar and bass. Rechargeable with a standard usb cable. Haven't had any issues as of yet. Works great!

    CONS: Construction is fairly cheap feeling but what would you expect for the price.

    A great little amp for what it is.
    I got this as an IEM to monitor my Acoustic-Electric guitar while playing with a big band and vocal ensemble where an amplifier was not welcome. It provides just enough amplification for me to hear all I am doing clearly while the horns are blaring. I particularly like the rechargeable battery feature.

    Also, while recently shopping for a new A-E guitar, it was perfect when auditioning the pickup systems. By using this headphone amp and a nice set of over-ear studio headphones, I was able to filter out the guitar sound in the room and concentrate on the sound of the electronics.

    The sound quality is excellent - crystal clear and full bodied without noticeable coloration in any particular frequency. Build quality seems good and so far it has been very reliable. How could anyone beat the price?

    Handy Practice Aid
    I use this for both guitar and bass, when I want to practice, but don't want to be tied to amplifiers, computers, etc.

    It was only $11.23 back when I bought mine (I should have bought a couple then). Still, I couldn't find anything comparable near this price range.

    Bottom Line: It does what I need it to do for practice purposes, and didn't cost an arm-and-a-leg.

    Pretty good
    Works fine. Like others, I had trouble with it falling out of my guitar easily. I put a tiny piece of masking tape at the top of the plug (where it meets the plastic), and this gave it enough extra snugness to remedy this problem. Rock on.

    PROS: Works well.
    Small problem easily fixed.

    CONS: Falls out of guitar easily.

    Loose fit and buzzy sound
    The product mostly works fine but when I turn it up to a high volume there's an accompanying background fuzz. For practicing purposes this shouldn't affect most people's experience, but I'm using it to rig a cheap in-ear monitor for stage performances so it's not ideal. Also it constantly slips out of the pick-up cable, as other customers have noted.
