What is the best headphone amp? I want to buy one so i could play late at night... I was thinkin about the VOX ones but i havent tried them and i have no experience with headphone amps.

Help?

EDIT: I also want it to be cheap, so im not gonna buy a small amp instead and just use headphones with it.

I took my little SS practice amp, and took it out of its case and made a case for it since it had a headphone out on it. I'm sure you could find one for 10 bucks on craigslist or kijiji or something.




I was thinking of building one of these cabinet sims for it http://www.runoffgroove.com/condor.html to add before the headphone out, so it add's a bit of meat to it.

Check out the examples and clip 3 in particular. http://www.runoffgroove.com/condor3.mp3 thats without and with the cabinet sim board. You could also build a small amp from that site, that you can add a headphone out jack too, battery powered, through in a tube driver circuit from there, and the condor amp sim, and have a portable box with gain, a tube screamer sim and a cabinet sim for probably 20 bucks in parts if you're good with soldering.

Vox amplug Metal. It can do everything except for cleans, sounds better than most low end solid states imo.

Pocket Pod.

Yes it pwns the Amplug, it pwns most cheap SS amps, it pwns most other cheap modellers, it's basically a Pod 2.0 in a smaller case, just don't get the PP Express. For tone and versatility, nothing is gonna match it in it's price range.

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
