R Headphones just ****ty? I got a converter once, but it just sounded like ****.

Any way I could get headphones that would go through my amp and also work with my pedals?

Just for late night playing?

I dono, it was either direct input or their is a headphone jack, it's been a while since I tried. And sound only came through 1 ear piece.

I have a fender frontman 25R and a pedal setup.

lol i love the title of this thread

edit:
in response to the post above mine.
Make sure the plug on the headphones, and the jack you're plugging into are the same.

If you're plugging stereo headphones into a mono jack, you're obviously not going to get stereo sound.

edit x 2:
re-reading your first post, the converter you got was probably mono.

If they sound bad, you're either using bad headphones or whatever you're playing through isn't that good. My GT-10 with my mom's $500 Shure headphones sounds amazing. But it sounds pretty terrible through my ipod headphones. It doesn't even sound that great through my V-Modas or Skullcandies.

Well they do have an excellent warranty. That's the only reason I keep using them. But you can definitely get better stuff for the price. But I wouldn't even bother if you're playing through a Frontman since it doesn't produce pleasant sounds on it's own. The high quality headphones will make a good system sound great. But they'll make something bad sound terrible. It's like playing a low-quality MP3.

I feel like I can get some sweet sounds from my frontman with mah pedals XD

It's prime like at 3 on the volume on the amp.

I use the Metallica Skull Candies whatever they are called. (I got them at the half off sale) Anyway they definitely sound nice and get the job done.

I've got a pair of sennheiser £20 ($32) headphones - they work fine. Did your headphones work ok with other things?

If you look at the headphone jack, its separated into 3 sections. The big one is the negative, the other two are the positives, one for each ear. If you've only got a mono socket on your amp the positive on the amp may only be connecting with one of the positives on your headphones - which would mean only one ear piece would work. You could try wiggling the jack to try and get it at a point where both positives are connected.

I use my dad's Boss headphones- The really good ones.
It sounds awesome, and it means I can crank the amp late at night, and not worry about other people waking up, or the headphones breaking.
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

bought this 120 bucks set of headphones once of a decent brand (something like a 3 letter abbrevation with an A) for the exact same purpose. The jack was stereo but the only place it would fit in on my amp was the one where the speaker goes into, and that's mono. So I traded it in for something else and just stop playing after 10 AM.
