Does exactly what it says it does
on September 6, 2013
I bought this headphone amp to split the signal from my audio interface to multiple headphones, and to plug my headphones into my TV. It works perfectly for both applications. Just take the headphone-out from any device (computer, receiver, interface, etc.) and plug it in into the input on the Pyle-Pro with a stereo 1/4 inch cable (or 3.5mm to 1/4 inch adapter). The signal is then split into 4 outputs where you can adjust the volume independently for each. Simple as that.
For devices without a headphone jack (such as my TV) an RCA to 1/4 inch adapter can be used to send audio to the Pyle-Pro.
Some things I like about the Pyle-Pro are:
1) It's small. Really small. Smaller than my LG cell phone. For those worried about it moving or slipping, a little bit of velcro, or even blue sticky, tack should solve that.
2) The sound. This thing sounds great (maybe not Audiophile-great, but it's quiet and accurate), and it gets LOUD. So loud that I haven't turned the volume to max for fear of going deaf. Even using a pair of Grado Alessandro MS-1s, which are hard to drive, I find it painfully loud at about 3/4 volume.
3)The price. For less than $20 shipped I couldn't ask for anything more. This thing provides a lot of power, splits it 4 ways, and has a small footprint. Definitely worth the money.
What I don't like:
1) No on/off switch. It's nothing to nitpick over, but you have to unplug it to power it down. For me it's fine, but for some it may be an inconvenience.
2) The LED. The red light when it powers on is a little bright. Not obnoxious, but a little bright.
All in all this is a wonderful purchase. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.
