I have a Mesa Mark V 35 coming and I've read its headphone output is pretty low. I dont want to have to crank my amp when using headphones then adjust it again for when I'm not. Ive read that the Behringer Micromon Ma400 serves this purpose very well and will give me the best sound. I know the difference an headphone amp can make since i use one with my computer. 

My question is: What type of cable do i use to connect my amp's headphone out to the headphone amp's monitor input.

headphones aren't the same as a live situation. what sounds good in them may not sound so good when you are playing in a room. keep that in mind and get used to the idea that you will likely have to change some settings. you won't have to crank it when using headphones. regular headphone cables are fine.

What is the input connector?  1/4" stereo, 2x 1/4" R/L, RCA...

His right. I used with headphone when I'm at home, and even If I play at home without headphones I have to change Vol and Gain Settings.

I already use headphones with my current setup and while I appreciate the feedback, my question was about which cable to use.

Thanks

If you think it's 1/4" TRS than a shielded 1/4"TRS is the one.  I honestly don't understand why you would choose to buy a separate headphone amp rather than just turning up the master a bit.

The amp can not get loud enough for headphones while maintaining the same tone.

I get that instead of plugging in some headphones and finding out for yourself you are asking about something you may not need at all.

Oh and wouldn't the spec sheet for that device tell you what cable you'd need

Many people use this headphone amp along with the mark V 25/35. I have to turn my current amp's volume way up to get it loud enough as well. I'd rather not have to do that. I'm asking about what type of cable to use. Telling me "headphones plug into jack" is just insulting.

I told you to check the spec sheet or instructions for the device you mentioned. You also didn't say that you had tried headphones yourself. Answers come from info given. You said you read not you knew from experience.

See post #7.  Based on your incomplete description it will be a shielded 1/4" TRS cable.  My Mesa headphone out gets plenty loud enough with epic Mesa tone.  No ext headphone amp required.  YMMV

Protip: When you give incomplete info and ask for specific answers, folks do their best to give useful answers based on 20 years of experience gigging with Mesa amps.  You are clearly a young cat with very limited experience.  Try not to be such a dick about it so the Mods don't eject you permanently from this very useful music site.

good pro tip. thundermonty not trying to give you a hard time it's just that you aren't getting something important here. sound through headphones is just plain not the same as what you will here in a room through the amp's speaker. this is a fact. you will have to change settings when going from one to the other. i learned this the hard way from recording using headphones. that awesome sound you hear through headphones sounds farly different when you play back the same music through regular speakers.  not that i'm not tying to be helpful  with your ? just that i'm pointing out something you may not have been aware of or thought of.
