    Comments about Sterling Audio S204HA 4-Channel Professional Headphone Amplifier:

    I got this on the SDOTD as I have never had a headphone amp and it would be nice to have others sing parts without having to use an omni patterned mic (actually, I love the way this sounds but it's hard to balance the volume of different voices). I was concerned about 2 things:
    1) it might be fragile
    2) it might not be loud enough for my needs
    To use a hackneyed phrase, it's built like a tank - even the knobs seem to be very sturdy and the headphone jacks don't wiggle as some devices I have used (usually because the jacks are mounted on the circuit board without any other support). As for volume, it was loud enough to make me uncomfortable. I don't play really loud music often, but unless you are standing right next to the drummer you should have no problems unless you don't have over-the-ear headphones...and even then, it's plenty loud. I noticed no distortion other than the low-end headphones I started testing with began to break up at near-full volume (a decent pair sounded even better). Bonuses: it's tiny and simple - I don't know if it had instructions as they are not needed. Recommended.

    Comments about Sterling Audio S204HA 4-Channel Professional Headphone Amplifier:

    Home studio use. Noisy for all headphones except high ohm ones. There's a constant hiss. Plus, when I got it a knob had been put on differently than the other three and didn't line up when at 0. Of course that's an easy fix, pull it off and line it up, but on a brand new out-of-the-box item? Not a indication of high quality control. Thought about sending it back but what a pain. It was a Stupid Deal of the Day.

      Comments about Sterling Audio S204HA 4-Channel Professional Headphone Amplifier:

      Got this on one of the Stupid Deals of the Day, and I'm really glad I did. The sound difference is really incredible! I record at home using a digital 16 track/interface, a laptop, etc. I figured the headphone outputs from those devices was fine. When I hooked this up, I was blown away by the sound difference! Everything was much louder and clearer, much more natural sounding. The 4 headphones outputs are terrific for tracking vocalists, drummers, etc. It might not be the absolute best on the market, but for the price, it's a very nice item. Very pleased with my purchase.

        This is a great unit and I got it at a great price on STUPID DEAL. I didn't know it had 2 kinds of inputs - Headphone & Left Right. I don't think the cheaper ones have this feature which comes in very handy as I noticed on my friends unit which only had the HP input.

        Comments about Sterling Audio S204HA 4-Channel Professional Headphone Amplifier:

        I actually have 2 of these units in my studio. These are a very affordable option for headphone amps. The sound is quite heavy on the low frequencies so it has to be compensated in the input signal. Would be nice if they had any type of built in eq. The volume is more than adequate.
