Excerpt: There's a lot of junk online, so thank goodness for reviews. I found this sucker for a podcast I was running through a handheld recorder and needed to 4 inputs for headphones to run through it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Good Warmth, Portable, Powerful
Excerpt: Don't really know why but out of the equipment I bought, I'm least impressed with this. Seems like the output adjustment is either real low, or real high. And the buttons don't allow adjustments between (clicks to next level). Difficult for me to get the volume correct.
Excerpt: I purchased this unit as a replacement to my 11 year old Samson S phone headphone amp/mixer, which had some blown transistors. I like all of the HA4700 features and the input output options; however, the sound is a bit brittle on the top end and the bass seemed to lack control and definition.
Excerpt: I purchased this unit to use to allow up to 4 people or in our case, 2 people and 1 amplified speaker, to work with one radio. We always had problems when more than one operator at a time was at the rig, but this unit allows us to tailor not only vol, but tone.
Pros: Easy To Use, Low Distortion, Metal construction, Multiple inputs, Versatile
Excerpt: I bought it to allow me to use my Koss Pro4AA (studio grade low-impedance) phones without having to turn on a power amp. (No Ipod can drive these.) Also lets me consolidate other headphone ports.The HA4700 has two rear jacks for each of the 4 amps, so you could have up to 12 phones attached to this...
Excerpt: I have a keyboard rig with a line mixer for three stereo 'boards and electronic crossover that drives the power amplifiers. The HA4700 was the only headphone amplifier solution that allowed me to loop the mixer output through and maintain full balanced signal paths to keep out the hum and buzz.
Excerpt: i use this in a project studio set-up. while this unit offers a lot of options the sound quality isn't very good. i haven't tried other amps in this price range but i definitley will and replace this one. i will spend more for the new one.
