    Complete newbie here, can I record to my phone with this?

    BEST ANSWER: you can't...as far as I know it's a portable practice amp with a USB charger. If there's some kind of way you could rig a way to send a USB feed/output into your computer, then by all means, have fun...or look for interfaces via this (monoprice's) website.

    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

    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

    Great sound! Plugs a few mm too short...
    This is a great little headphone amp. Sounds wonderful on both a piezo and mag pickup.

    Like others, I find the plug a bit too small... so i risked my warranty and used a hot knife to trim about 2mm all around the plug. Works Great!

    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.

    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.

    I bought a bunch of these for my students, and for myself, too...and all I can say is that this thing is AMAZING!!! The sound, the convenience, the price...what more could you ask for?

    Whole Lotta Bang for the Buck
    Sounds great! Gain, Tone and Volume controls have good range. Can play from clean to dirty with Humbuckers or single-coils. Very good overdrive tone when the gain is dialed up. No issues with plug length or clearance when plugging into a Squier Strat or Route 66. The lousy 1/4" jack on the Route 66 is another story altogether. I got a 6ft extension cord and plugged the headphones amp into the output of my pedals for even more tonal possibilities. No problem charging, don't know how long it will run between charges. Highly recommended.
