Our church decided to make the move from floor monitors to in-ears, but wanted to gradually do it over a few years. The end-goal is to have an aviom(or similar) system. These units have turned out to be exactly what we need at this point. Our FOH mixer has 4 aux sends. I use one, our drummer uses another, then we send the rest of the musicians 1 flat mix, and all our backup vocalists another flat mix. Each one of the musicians and vocalists (other than the drummer and I) have one of these units. The flat mix goes into the MON input, and their mic/instrument goes into the MIC input. This gives them the ability to have "more me" in their ears. The initial shock of going in-ears was an adjustment for some (I've been using the shure PSM system for a few years), but now everyone is very happy, and our sound guys are even happier. They never hear "Can I have more me in my monitor?" anymore. :)The only negative is that they can kind of be finicky. We have the exact same trs-to-xlr cable going to each of them, but some need to be set to "MONO" and some need to be set to "STEREO" to work. We had one stop working, but it was quickly replaced, for free. The bottom line is - this is not even close to a fraction of the price of an aviom system, and it does well beyond its [$] pricetag. We're very happy with them.**Note, contrary to behringer's website, these units do NOT work when your mixer has phantom power turned on. We use one condenser microphone for our drum overhead mic, and had to purchase a phantom power unit to power that mic, separate from the mixer. Minor inconvenience.

Bought this for our drummer so he could have our click tracks for live shows and his own monitor mix in his headphones. I could see this being useful in a quieter setting, but for live performances (no matter which type of isolating headphones) you really can't get this thing loud enough, it almost sounds like there's a 15 or 20dB pad in effect. Threw this in the junk pile and bought the Behringer AMP800 from my local music shop (they let me test it out first!). A lot more output gain and adjustable input gain. Plus it's 4 stereo channels (TRS). If you don't need a lot of volume the MicroMon will do, but for live or loud applications, I would definitley look elsewhere.

Cheap Solution to a Unique Problem!

By doyouhearwhatihear

Ask me a question

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

A little more volume would be nice but for my application, which is obviously different than the units stated purpose, this thing is overall awesome. I'll bet there's a bunch of other things that it could be used for as well. Probably not a bad little tool for any sound person or band to have in their bag of tricks for when those unexpected problems arise. I think that the Behringer Shark is a similar little problem solver that I would like to have on hand as well.
Works great for what I had in mind... and for this price there was no reason not to take a chance.

What I needed was a way to split a post fader aux on a mixer during live church services. I send this signal to our "DVD Recording Room" but our particular mixer has no way for me to monitor post-fader aux sends (3-6). For a low price I got this and a mono Y cable and voila. Now I can monitor exactly what is going to be recorded and not have to take the video man's word on it when he saya he needs more less of this or that. I can actually hear what is happening when I make any adjustments- what a concept! In a relatively small church room this ability is crucial. If I send to recording a flat mix (exactly what the FOH mix is) it's very unbalanced as far as a recording mix goes. This is because a lot of stage sound from amps and instruments bleed directly into the seats. Therefore I don't need to add as much of them into the mains as I do in order to match (as best as I can) the FOH mix.

I have not used (and have no immediate need to) the xlr feature. What sold me on this and kept me from going for the HA400 is the "mono" option. Since the aux send is mono I really didn't want to be stuck with only one ears worth of sound when adjusting the recording mix through the heaphones.

Volume is not super loud so I can't speak for how it would work for it's intended purpose on a live/loud sound stage. Bur for our needs it's perfect. Too bad a headtap doesn't have the independent mic monitoring feature

To sum up, the features are 100% exactly what I needed as was hoping for. Drop dead perfect.
I'm under no delusion that a inexpensive Behringer item will last forever but first impressions are that it is solid. If I have to buy another one in a couple years I won't be too surprised... but we'll see. Since it sits in one place and will not be moved. gigged or tossed around I'm hoping it will be around for a while.
All little boxes with a few wires and knobs should be priced like this. Kudos to Behringer for getting it right!

Cheap in-ear system

By Jeremy Hilterbrand

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

I've stringed six of these things on cables off of monitor channels on stage to use as in-ear monitors for the praise band. Works great! took a couple of Y splits and headphone extensions, but it works. It's not an aviom system or anything, but its a six person in-ear system for under 300 bucks, compared to 6K for aviom. As a single unit, they work great as well. Only complaint is that they do distort a powered signal when put thru the bypass, but easy fix by putting an XLR Y-split and sending the signal direct to the board and seprately the behringer. But otherwise, it works great.

Poor Customer Service

By Ching Wang

from Saint Paul, MN

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

We are very happy with the functional unit but the dead on arrival unit wasn't a problem until I got caught up in their customer service in trying to get the device replaced. We tried various configurations, cables and the device just would not work like the functioning unit. So I finally registered the device, requested a RMA and msiled in a copy of my receipt. They claimed that it would take 24-48 hours to generate a RMA number (I also faxed in the receipt) but I had to send a followup email to even receive the number. Then I mailed it in and waited. And waited for 5 weeks. I had to send another followup email and they said that the device just arriveed and that it would take 3-5 business days to run around and up to 2 weeks to arrive. That was the end of March. Now we are at the end of June and no replacement unit, plus they have my broken unit. Follow up emails have so far been ignored. It has been a very frustraing lesson and I don't trust Behringer to stand behind their equipment.
The features and size were what we were looking. It was small and had all of the connections that were needed.
We purchased 2 of these micromons and 1 came in non-functional right out of the box. The second one was fine and we are still using it after a year of usage. See below about the RMA experience that was terrible.
Originally, the price was right for us. But after 1 device came in non-functional, the price basically doubled for us.

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

Pros: The Behringer Micromon MA400 is of solid construction, excellent fit and finish, with knobs that work very well.Cons: Be aware, this is not a battery powered unit, but plugs into wall outlet with transformer-type plug, something to consider if in plane, bus or car. In-as-much, one might expect decent power to drive stereo headphones, alas there is minimum power output, rendering limited usefulness in (even moderately) noisy environments. The mono/stereo feature is a bit odd ... if your using the MA400 to practice your electric guitar, expect sound out of left side of your stereo headphones only (regardless of where the switch is set). The sound you do get, however, is very clean. For the money it's OK, just wish there was battery option, and a bit more kick.

Good BUT you need the right cables

By WestoneKid

Ask me a question

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

Well this little machine works GREAT but in order for it to work right you MUST have a stereo cable to go into the amp! radioshack has all the right stuff to make it work. You need a Y cable with 2 mono female inputs that goes into a stereo single input male. These are ment to be hooked up to sound isolating headphones so you dont need alot of sound to hear so finding the right fit for your headphones is a must! All around I gave the fatures 4 because it is a more baisic headphone amp. I've seen some with more on them but not for this great price! Rock on!!!

Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

This thing fulfills a perfect need at a wonderful price, and there really is nothing else out there at this price point. Not sure what the reviews below are referring to regarding mono maybe I have a newer model? - there is a little switch to select mono right on the unit.For stereo use a dual TRS or a send and return cable (1/4 stereo plug to dual mono 1/4) for your house mix or main mix input. I got these for the horn guys in my band: they can run thier mic or wireless into the xlr input and use this box as headphone control, then pass the xlr onto the house (the ground switch is invaluable here). I use these for my stationary singers who aren't on a wireless pack I run thier indivudal mics thru the unit, pass to the board, and send them a house mix. (they tend to use just one ear only and sometimes don't even want the house mix).I use this slightly backwards with my keyboard rig: I run my keys mix into the monitor mix input , and then ask for an xlr house mix from the sound guy and run it into the xlr input , then run the headphone output into my in ear pack (so I can be protected by it's limiter). If I'm on a show and the soundman/monitor person can't send me a mix, or is an idiot or primadonna, I'll just hook a cheap mic up to mic input to feed a little of the stage sound into my ear mix along with the keys. The box functions great as a standalone headphone feed/mixer, especially if all you need to hear is yourself and pass it on to the board , but if you're also getting a monitor feed that's subject to dangerous level fluctuations, feedback, or an incompetent sound/monitor person, etc.- it's better protect your ears and add a pack with a built in limiter.

      Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

      Works great as an individual in-ear monitor amplifier. I just brought the monitor mix in on the XLR mic input and then chained the mix on to the next unit. Perfect little unit, especially for the price! I bought 6 of these and removed all floor monitors. Not as flexible as Avioms, but gets you close at a fraction of the cost.

      Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

      I bought this as a cheap alternative to my Rolls PM351 Personal Monitor System. I play in a Classic Rock band and need a lot of volume to hear over the drummer. The Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier is not a good choice for this application. If Live Classic Rock is what you want then better look at the Rolls product. Otherwise for quiter applications I am sure this will work fine.

      I don't know why people bash this unit with respect to the stereo switch. When there is a stereo input source place the switch in stereo and you get stereo output. When you are using a mono source place the switch to mono and you get the mono piped to both ears. It works exactly as expected.

            Actually, we use it somewhat "backwards"... we run a monitor send into the "Mic input" and a metronome into the "Monitor input" so the drummer can self-mix his click against his monitor mix for in-ears.

            I bought this little headphone amp to so I could hear while playing onstage at church. Since I can't afford the big money headphone setups, this was right down my alley. I've borrowed the big name/big money setups and when I plugged in the MA400, I was IMPRESSED!! The sound is amazing, the volume is very easily adjusted and the simplicity of the unit made me suggest this unit to the whole praise team band! Get one of these today if you're on a budget, they work great!!

            I have used this little unit for a few years now and it has always worked and sounded great. Then last summer I decided to purchase the Behringer PowerPlay Pro-XL HA4700 rack unit to replace my little MA400. BIG MISTAKE!!! The HA4700 is garbage; very noisy and sounded terrible. So I went back to my little MA400 and couldn't be happier. For the price of the bigger unit I purchased three more (spares) and have yet to open them. A great product at a great price. Finally, Behringer made one thing right!

            I just purchased the Behringer Micromon MA400. I didn't know what to expect with a price so low, but when I got it and plugged it in, the sound was great but I could only get it in one ear on the headphones. I bought a TRS cable and plugged it in and was able to get sound in both ears. The sound is amazing. I'm just using some Phillips earphones. I'ts powerful enough to use live too! Definitely worth it!

            I now buy almost all of my gear through Musician's Friend. Great selection and excellent service every time. The Micromon has provided my band with a monitor solution that is VERY affordable, easy to use, and works very well. Solved the challenges of vocalists sharing monitors. Worked so well we bought two more and ran an acoustic guitar and bass guitar through Micromons on a shared monitor channel. Worked great!!!

            from Williamstown, MA

            Comments about Behringer Micromon MA400 Headphone Amplifier:

            It's all you really need for a headphone amp. Granted, you need to have 1/4" inputs...but these have been coming with any decent pair of headphones. The amp itself was a handsome silver, and feels solid, feeling a lot more than the $ I spent. The knobs are perfect, well made and well weighted so you can't possibly screw up any adjustments. The only feature (which is why I give a 9) I miss is the ability to have true mono sound, which is basically now just stuck on the left side. If you want all of your listeners monitoring the same sound, at their comfortable level, then just get this.
