Showing 1-9 of 9
Does its job at a great price!

Summary: My Roland TD-9 has a low volume headphone output, said to be an impedance matching issue with most headphones. I bought this AMP because it will bridge that imepance gap and work with ANY headphones. It solved my low volume problem, and the sound is now LOUD and clear. You can't beat the price, its a no brainer. The plastics are cheap to keep price down, but who cares? It works and just sits there 99% of the time.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This product is used in a project studio for recording/listen back purposes. I'm using it to monitor live recordings and then monitor tracks for overdubs. I/O is adequate, I am able to hook this up to my recording interface without issue. Sound quality is clean, powerful. My only gripe, the case is pretty flimsy...would not inspire confidence if it fell from the desk.
Summary: Very flexible compact unit... Either of 2 stereo inputs can be selected to any or all of 4 pairs of stereo headphones. Each with individual controls. Multiple units can be chained to support additional headphones. Quality seems excellent for remote, on-site work. (Might not meet extreme studio standards, though.) But, given the cost of the unit, it's a very good value...
Summary: This product is aimed at the professional audio market, thus only balanced or unbalanced 1/4 inch jacks can be used. I bought some 1/4 to RCA jacks and it works just fine, although balanced would be ideal my source isn't balance, so it doesn't matter in my case.Compared to the an amplifier I owned costing literally 10 times more than the AMP800, the AMP800 performs very well.As expected from a product costing 10 times less than the my other amp, the AMP800 does not have...
Pros: Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
Summary: When I needed five headphone amps for a show that's entirely played back through headphones, the Behringer was certainly the right choice at 40 bucks a pop. There wasn't anything cheaper available, and it turned out they were easy to use and sounded good. Just know that you'll need a Y cable if you have a stereo input like a portable cd player or mp3 player. The input jacks on this are NOT stereo, regardless of what it looks like.
