Headphones + pedals

Postby black03 » 07 Jul 2018, 00:25

Hi, what is the best device to test and listen to pedals with headphones? I was thinking about buying the Vox plug Amp with a good headset, but I did not try it and I do not know if the distortions sound bad?
Recommendations?

The vox amplug will distort what you hear. Not very good for listening to a pedal on its own IMO.

I'd recommend plugging the pedals and your headphones directly to a mixer, or using a multi-fx unit (e.g. zoom G1on) in bypass mode.

I use my DIY tube/mosfet headphone amp, very good linearity and sound very good.

It works well? You have bad score on Amazon, I saw many videos that on the Namm are with headphones testing pedals, as manufacturers do?

What you mean about me have bad score in amazon :shock: never buy and sell in amazon. Just affiliate for some time ago. hahaha

its just a suggestion. you can try it on breadboard ( as schemo already on net ). If suit you, build it :mrgreen: btw, we talk about DIY, yes?
or you want try this? :wink:
sorry for lazy draw, all opamp is 5532. OL & OR is output for headphone jack.

for me, a (almost) flat response headphone/iem/earbud is must. best bang for buck is takstar HD2000 or ts671

Thank you for your response, but I really can not find options to buy in addition to the vallerman, as do the manufacturers to show their products at the Expo as Namm? I see many depriving with headphones.

Thank you
