By Andrew Hagler on January 8, 2013
My girlfriend bought me this little devices as a Christmas gift. It's a powerful little headphone amplifier with a really nice design and MOST of the features you'd want in a small, easy-to-use package.

Let's start with the good:

I'm a bass player and I live in an apartment. I practice with headphones often. Sometimes I use my computer as a practicing aid, recording clips with garageband and using a DI to connect my instrument to my 2008 MacBook. I also use the headphone output on my larger amplifier (a Genz Benz shuttle). There are pros and cons with each. The computer, while portable and useful for recording, lacks the output power to drive larger headphones, and can be a tad cumbersome. You need cables between the bass and the computer, to the headphones, and usually a power brick for the laptop.

The amp solution is better in terms of flexibility - the high-powered headphone out can drive even the most demanding headphones to deafening volume, the eq section is extensive, and the sound is very clear, but it's even less portable than a computer.

The Fiio G01 is a great solution. It fits in the gig bag, plugs directly into the instrument, so the only cable I have to worry about is between my headphones and the amp. It's output is more powerful than the one on my MacBook, making it easier to drive headphones (with some limitations, I'll get to that in a minute). The amp is rechargeable, a HUGE plus, and even better - it recharges via micro-USB. If you are like me, you probably already have a bunch of USB chargers and micro-usb calbes (for your phone, kindle, tablet, etc), so you can charge it just about anywhere. It includes a cable, but no AC adapter, though, so if you don't have one available, you'll need to get one or plug it into a computer.

I plugged this in to my bass and within seconds was ready to go in absolutely silent practice! I was seriously considering between the Fiio G01 or the Vox Amplug Bass. But reading reviews of the Vox led me to believe that its construction wasn't as sturdy and it was almost $50!. My only doubt was that the Fiio was designed for guitars not a bass. however, I went ahead with it anyway and I was so glad I did!

It sounds great, is built very well and the internal battery means no forking out more for replacement AAA or 9V batteries! It charges quickly through USB. It was very easy to dial in to get the sound I wanted with the tone, and overdrive knob.

Update: (6 months later)
This little device is still working great! Battery lasts about 20 - 30 hours approximately so at an hour to 2 hours of use a day this means about 2 weeks of use between charging. I've showed this off to other musicians and all agree its a great tool to add to your practice arsenal. The tone control on this doesn't do too much (but I adjust it on my bass anyway). One of the best features is having the Aux in jack so I can play right along to MP3's with ease.

2nd Update :(2+ years later)
This is still chugging along with no drop in quality or battery life. I still use this for 20-30 hours a week and have been doing so pretty much since I got it 2 1/2 years ago. The 1/4" jack is a little looser but its not threatening to fallout or anything, it still works fine, I just have to be more gentle with it. Once again, an excellent product that stands the test of time. Highly recommended.

I love this little amp. It is sooooo much better than the Vox AmPlug I also own. Top notch build quality similar to FiiO's other headphone amps. The Vox feel very cheap in comparison. Another key difference is that the FiiO has a permanent rechargeable battery versus the Vox's use of AAA's. Pros and cons for both methods, but I prefer the rechargeable solution personally.

The plug pivots out with a button in much the same way many new car keys now do. This is nice not only for storage, but also to provide some play if you accidentally bump the amp on something to minimize damage to it or the output jack on your instrument.

With the gain turned all the way down, the tone is VERY clean. So much so that I forget that it is even turned on. Turning up the gain adds a noticeable hiss along with the distortion, but nothing you wouldn't expect out of a traditional amplifier.

My only real complaint is that the dials for Volume, Gain, and Tone are on the bottom edge of the Amp (same as the Vox) and are proud from the housing. This makes it very easy to brush them against your leg or hip and mess up your settings...and potentially blow your ears out. I would love for these to be recessed.

I can echo the other reviews here that affirm that this is a great headphone amp for bass guitar. This amp fits easily into my guitar case and is great for getting some practice in when an outlet isn't handy or when a regular amp and cab would be inappropriate.

I typically use it with my MP3 player plugged in to the Aux jack. The operation of the Aux jack is very interesting. The volume control on my MP3 player is used to change the volume of the track I'm practicing with, and the volume knob on the amp controls ONLY the guitar's volume. This works really well so I can dial in a good volume for both the track and my guitar.

The rechargeable battery lasts a very long time. The only issue I've had is that the volume, tone, and drive controls turn very easily, so they typically get messed up and I have to re-set them each time I use the amp.
