It's "Made in USA" and built like a tank. All the other brands are made of plastic while the EH AMP is made of metal and virtually bomb proof. It's simple, you get to hear exactly what your instrument and your fingers sounds like - without the noise - and it's very responsive to your touch and attack.

I've owned all of the other brands of headphone amps that MF carries and returned them all because of their unbearable noise, awful tone, and poor build quality. I tried the other brands first because they offer multiple effects and amp modeling/simulation features while the EH AMP only has a volume control.

After experiencing all of the noise present in the other brands of headphone amps that I've tried, all who claimed to be noise free, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the EH AMP truly is noise free.

Because it magnifies all of the nuances of ones playing and gives you the true, distinct, sound (character) of whaterver instrument you plug into it, it cannot help but improve your tone.

When a headphone amp that only has a volume control is able to sound better than the ones that feature amp simulators and built in effects, that's saying something. And did I mention that this thing is quiet?

I bought this to help me play bass with my friends, just for fun, no public performances. I play entirely by ear so it helps to be able to hear myself clearly. The quality from this unit is great, good fidelity and no hum, but the volume level is not near sufficient, even with full coverage headsets.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Headphone Amp:

    tried all the plastic ones. They are all junk. None of them and i've tried them all (pocket-rocket,amp-u-plug-n-play,vox)are even close to this one. Finally a sturdy metal case,simple to use,small enough to fit in a guitar case,and great sound and it doesn't break up no matter what the volume is set on. Granted it doesn,t have all the extras the others have. It is just the best. All the others and I mean all the others will cut out and either have this annoying static or go silent altogether right in the middle of a good riff. Who needs that????? Get this one. You won't be dissappointed.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Headphone Amp:

    The first reviewer was right on point! I needed something small that would allow me to just take my axe to my hotel room to practice. This is a great design. Having said that, I have practiced with it about four times, albeit long times, and it started to fade out and come back. So I decided to change the battery. The battery was so difficult to get out that I thought it was glued into place. It looks like a QC issue. The board is clean, but it seems that the circuit board was not aligned properly. This could be just my device that got through. It had the cheapest battery I have ever seen. So, get this amp you will love it, especially at this price. I play bass, both upright and electric and both had a great sound. Fits on your belt and has a volume control that is convenient. To the guy or gal who did the final QC--No soup for you!

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Headphone Amp:

        This is a pretty cool little practice amp. It is very tiny and portable. Don't try to use it for anything other than what it was made to do and that is, silent practice with decent sound quality. There are no effects, so it is the sound of your guitar, fingers and pick-ups only. Volume through headphones is plenty adequate and sound quality is clean and silent. In any event, I hope this helps.

            I bought this product for a very specific reason. My in-laws are here for a very long visit from South Africa. Although my music room is upstairs, I still needed a quiet way to play my guitar. I wasn't interested in one with all sort of frills and multiple effects and I came across this little guy. Works great! I liked the good reviews it had received as well as the price. Now I'm able to play any and all of my electric guitars. ...as loud as I want. Good bang for the buck!

                Since I work some unusual hours I thought this would be nice. Holy Moly this thing is GREAT. Fantastic design as it does not plug directly into the guitar. You can even plug it into your pedal board for full effect. Top quality design and construction. REAL top quality sound. Metal case and made in the USA are nice touches.

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Headphone Amp:

                I needed a way to practice without plugging into an amp. Some of the other headphone amps did not have very good audio quality and some had so-called effects. This is just a headphone amplifier with very clear audio and more volume than I can handle. It is rugged with a metal case like a mini stomp box. There is also a belt hook on the back - a nice touch. It was perfect for me. The battery compartment is VERY tight, so using rechargable 9v batteries is unlikely; however, the alkaline battery lasts a very long time. The fact that it is made in the US was a pleasant bonus. I highly recommend this product.

                    Great simple little headphone amp for playing your instrument in headphones. Has great clean sound. My only complaint would be the belt clip doesn't work real well if you try to clip on your strap or something other that a belt. A little velcro tape solved that problem. If you are looking to play into headphones so you don't disturb others I would highly recommend this amp

                            I am quite pleased with this headphone amp. I have been using it with a bass and am very impressed with the even frequency response and very pure-sounding tone. I am also using Shure in-ear headphones, and the combo just sounds right together. The clip on the unit fits onto guitar straps so it is convenient to plug in with a pedal patch cable and clip on near the bottom strap button.

                            Having said that, I do have a few gripes with the unit that were enough to take away one star. For one - mine shipped with the volume knob turned all the way up. Without clear marking of what is max and min volume, this could be damaging to someone's hearing out of the box. While it doesn't get very loud, it's still inconsiderate to the musician. The other thing is the static when the headphones are being plugged in. Again, with the default volume at max, this isn't a good thing to have happen. I certainly hope nobody puts their headphones on before plugging into this... I would much rather see a different volume knob on this unit that clicks off when it is turned all the way down, especially because I'd prefer to leave my headphones plugged into this when I'm done with it (have to unplug them to save the battery).

                            Overall it's worth the price and the simplicity is great for musicians. Just be smart when it comes to your ears and you'll enjoy this product.

                              This thing is very cool. The sounds of my strat come alive in my ears and will not disturb others. So I can rip roar and make all kinds of noise and no one is telling me to shut the door or turn it down. So when you get inspired at 0200 in the am just go for it.

                                I bought this to help me play bass with my friends, just for fun, no public performances. I play entirely by ear so it helps to be able to hear myself clearly. The quality from this unit is great, good fidelity and no hum, but the volume level is not near sufficient, even with full coverage headsets.

                                  At home for "quiet practice" and to work on my tone. this unit is quiet and does not model the signal.
                                  What you hear,is what you and your instrument are doing

                                          Good for quiet practice, does not sound as good as your amp but good enough.

                                            Great for soundless practice. A feature that would be beneficial would be an auxiliary port for mp3 playback
