        The battery-powered Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp allows you to practice silently in any location, and to have great tones at your disposal. The rotating input plug has 90 degrees of motion, so the V1 from C Tech can plug into any bass guitar jack--no cable needed!

        The Pocket Rock-It Bass Headphone Amp's 2 "big" and 2 "tite" settings, with separate settings for active and passive pickup simulation give you tons of tone versatility. The Filter control is a continuously variable EQ that adjusts high and mid-range frequencies of the amp emulation model selected.

        If you do decide to let the rest of the world in on your V1b headphone amp sessions, use the line out for recording or preamp applications. Jam with your CDs or MP3s with the line in or connect two Pocket Rock-Its and jam with a buddy (adapters and cables included).

        I bought this for practice and mobility so I can walk around the house and play without cables and without bothering anybody.I think the sound quality is great, and I did not have any issues with fuzz like another reviewer mentioned. There is the active/passive switch, and the tone settings to tailor the sound. I found one setting I like and I'm just keeping it set to that.Volume is pretty good. I play it about 70% up and it is plenty loud there.For a portable unit this fit the bill perfectly for me. I also like the adjustable design for plugging in - seems like it should fit any type of jack. It also plugs very true into my bass - I don't have any fear of it falling out while I walk around and play.The supplied headphones are not high end, but they are Ok for me so I'm using them. At some point I may get better ones but for now the supplied ones are good enough for me.It also comes with several cable and attachment accessories, which was a bonus.

        This would be a great little headphone amp -- if it actually worked. I'm just about to return unit number two. Both so far have failed in exactly the same way. It works fine for a little while (I got about 2 hours out of the first, maybe 30 seconds out of the second), but then it starts repeatedly resetting itself. From there it's all over; nothing will get it to work properly again.

        I can understand getting one bad unit. It happens. But two in a row (had to wait for the second, it was on backorder) with the exact same problem is starting to indicate either a design flaw or bad components. Maybe third time's the charm? I'm not holding my breath.

          Comments about C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp:

          first off, this unit is only as good as the headphones you use. What comes with it isn't the greatest. I play an Alembic 5 string with Etymotic ear buds which are towards the high price end. BUT, i get good sound quality including my low b string. If you push this unit, you will get distortion. Quite frankly you wont need to get that loud. There is some high end white noise. It has 2 input jacks, one for your phones and the other for an external sound source like an ipod. There are some filters. All in all, for practicing or playing at night, its a pretty good deal. I did have issues getting the battery to seat and getting to lock in.

                    Great little headphone amp!

                    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp:

                    I think the product does what it says it will do, sounds great and the price is terrific. If they would only allow the plug to fold completely down (for easier storage), and include better headphone or earbuds, then I would rate it a 9 possibly a 10.
                    I don't do much with the tone adjustments as it sounds pretty good right out of the box. The inclusion of a variety of adapters for audio input devices was a great bonus! I thought I would have to go out and buy a stereo mini plug adapter for my ipod/iphone to the unit - so it was a nice surprise to have it there.
                    Feels a bit flimsy but I supposed the lightweight plastic is used so it doesn't disengage from the output jack on the bass. Crappy headphones - don't even bother with it. Mine arrived with one of the ear pieces in pieces.
                    Because it is relatively inexpensive I think it is a good value. It works well for me and I like all the adapaters for audio input devices.

                    It's a "must have" if you cant use your amp.

                    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp:

                    The first one that I received didn't work. The second one I got works fine. It's a pain to get the battery cover on once you insert the battery,other than that, I'm completely happy with it. It comes with all the adapters you'll need to hook it up to just about anything.
                    You'll want to get a pair of really good headphones, the ones that come with it are junk, but with a good set you can actually get some good tone out of it.
                    I wish I would of bought this years ago.
                    It has some different tone selections to pick from. Nothing that will knock your socks off but it can be fun to play around with them.
                    It feels like it's built rather cheaply. I think if I dropped it, it would shatter.
                    It's a fairly inexpensive practice aid and it does what it's supposed to do.

                    Rocks but upgrade the headphones

                    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp:

                    Solid buy, sounds good, performs well. just have to get decent headphones.
                    Sounds like me playing through the headphones, nothing spectacular. C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp with Fender J-bass.
                    Not really robust... My headphones arrived with a somewhat rattly right headphone, and the sound is all bass which is not a bad thing. Good volume.

                    It is a great practice tool for any musician so they will not destrub others in small spaces.
                    I use this with my keyboard and it works quite well, I wish you would make one just for keyboards.
                    For the price it could be no better

                    Don't drop it

                    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp:

                    The features are great. I use it with sound deadening headphones and it sounds much better. I like how I can plug in external device such as an ipod and adjust the volumes of each. I would have rated it higher except it was accidently dropped, (on a carpet floor), and now it functions intermittently. It can be a bit fragile.

                    Died After a Couple of Months

                    I got one of these for Christmas 2009 and it died after a couple of months. I tried replacing the battery but it was still dead. The concept is great, but the quality should be improved upon. I had an older version of this that I used for 3-4 years before it finally died.
