    "The amp works as described, but next time I think I'll just buy a really good set of head phones. The process of having to have this hooked in to get amplification is a bit cumbersome. Even though it's portable it's a bit bulky and just not worth the hassle."

    "This headphones amp works really well - I use it with an old pair I have and it brings the volume up on particularly low audio tracks that I have. I think it's great, but it's also important to be careful and not get the volume up too loud, which is certainly possible with this product."

    "So I decided to try this to see if it could boost the sound on my earbuds. It does what's advertised, which is to remove some crackle and hiss from the sound source. It does this very well. BUT, it doesn't boost the output at all, so I'll split the difference on the rating. Good for what it does, not so much for boosting."

    "First of all, this amp is not under $200. And while it does have a headphone output, that is not it's basic function. For almost $500, I just can't justify that."
