        I'm a reverb fan, so was not satisfied at all with the delay feature. I'll leave it on chorus setting permanently. I plugged it stereo through a Mackie mixer to some Sony MDR-V6 headphones, then cranked up the Mackie spring reverb setting. When using the overdrive or metal mode, the result is quite satisfying as far as a loud guitar practice session in the privacy of one's own skull. Plenty of good harmonics there. Since this is a $25 unit, I'll see about hacking the circuit board into a planned franken-amp project, involving a Fender Champ amplifier, a 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speaker and the guts of a Digitech Digiverb, all in a custom floor monitor slant style cabinet.

        GEEZ!!!! What do you guys expect for 25 bucks?! No, it's not a Marshall half-stack with Fuzzbox and a CryBaby. But it is TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS !!!!I've had one for years now (bought it from MF)and it is a very servicable amp to use for "quiet" practice. I connect my TEX-MEX STRAT and it works fine. No, don't even bother to connect it to your big amp & use it like a pedal. It sucks for that. There is a reason that some single function pedals cost $100 PLUS!!!Use it as a practice amp or travel amp and recognize it for what it is and you won't be disappointed.And yes, throw away the the crappy, cheap headphones that come with it and use the ones that you use with your MP3 player ( I use SONY) and it will sound fine.

        Not Bad

        By Barbaloot_Suit

        from The East

        I got this for one of my kids and the kid is absolutely in love with it. I've tried it and am pleased with the ability to mix and match effects (echo, chorus, distortion, grunge). It actually sounds pretty good. My wife caught me rocking out to it the other night and she had to laugh. The unit itself is plastic and a little bigger than I was expecting but it still can clip nicely on your belt or you can leave it sit on a stool while you tool. All in all, it really is pretty good for the $$.

        Arion Hot Watt II

        By TdTdCs

        from Germany

        OK so I bought this just so I could jam along with my MP3 player in private. The features are so-so for guitar but works great with my bass. The headphones that it came with works just fine when I play my guitar but with my bass I use my other set. The supplied headphones are too short but I bought an extension that solved that problem. Now if they could only find a way to combine this with say a Digitech RP50 in one product.......

        Sounds great. My only criticism is the cheap headphones but you can't expect quality phones at this price. I use JCV phones which lets me turn the volume way down and conserve batteries. This unit even sounds good when connected to my big amplifier. Can't go wrong with the price.

        The price is just right. Good for private practicing. You can also attach CD player and play along with your favorite tunes.

        Little box / little benefit

        By God's Flying V-man

        from Rockingham, NC

        I want to be fair the headphones were broken out of the box (in} actually but I found some with compatible freq response and worked ok with them I like most of the sounds too but the controls and plug-ins should be re-arranged to a more funtional set of positions. I used this as a head-phone amp and also through my guitar amp for live sound for the price I was very satisfied It is bulky and not weight balanced and the speaker-phones were sorry & un-useable my main complaint is with the plug-ins and controls positions I actually was fond of the sounds produced maybe I'll buy another one since this one was trashed buy someone I lent it to who had no concept of how to use it properly.

        Do not atempt buy this please, the distorcion is poor, you need to use a low volume of your instrument to have a regular sound.

        not bad not good

        Echo is lifeless, Chorus is okay, Overdrive decent, metal master decent, the problem lies in the incredible highs generated by chorus or echo, also volume does not necessarily increase volume of tone or effect, rather loudness of guitar, you can hear the guitars natural sound above the effect, if the volume increased the volume of the effect it would be pretty nice

        save up for something better

        I wanted a headphone amp for years ever since I played through a friends Rockman. The Rockman had this cool huge auditorium sound. I bought a Pocket Rocket amp several years ago and it started making weird siren-type sounds after a few weeks. I bought this Hot Watt 2 a year ago. Tried it out for awhile the day I got it and haven't touched it since. I was pretty disappointed. If all you want is a way to hear your electric without bugging everyone else in the house, this will work. But if you care at all about sound quality, get something else.

        Worth the sale price..

        By Papaya5402

        from New York

        Has alot features, the echo feature was A disapointment. It didn't seem to have much effect. You can't use the echo and chorus together. It's a great deal at the sale price of $29.95. Be warned though. The one I have requires 6 AA batteries. Depending on your amount of use, you might want to consider the 9 volt adapter.
