Depends on what your amp is and if it has a headphone output. Most tube amps don't have a headphone output (an exception being the Peavey Valveking Royal 8) whereas alot of solid state amps do.

You can use any headphones. You will need a 1/8" to 1/4" converter though.


Which you usually end up with about four of those things before you ever even need to use one. A lot of times they just come with the headphones.

I have a solid state and it has a headphone output. So does that mean I don't need the converter?

If you don't already own a converter and the headphones that you are buying don't come with one then yes you will need to purchase one.

Headphone plugs are 1/8" and input/output jacks on amps are 1/4"; therefore you would need one of these:

Yeah, I probably have like 10 of those lying around my house, but if I can't find one they seem to be dirt cheap.

Well if you have the converter then you can use any headphones.

Just remember that when playing with headphones it is not going to sound the same as playing through the amp's speaker - headphones have stereo speakers which are voiced for general audio whereas amps have guitar speakers which are voiced specifically for guitars.

In regards to the headphones themselves, they're closed headphones which means that stop sound leaking in or out. This usually comes at the expense of sound quality or at greater cost.

So unless you need isolation you're better off finding a pair of open headphones.

There's a good explaination here
