    Default Latest Greatest Headphone Amp

    Hey Folks,

    I want to get a headphone amp, ala Pocket Rocket of the 80s. What is the latest greatest that has all the different amp sounds, and can even possibly be used to record with?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    ps... Let's keep it under $500.

    I think most people will point you to a POD. I however have a Korg PX4 and like it for what it is (amp modeling, etc.,). I use the infrared headphones but you have to be about 3 feet from it (really not an issue). Some pretty cool preset effects/settings (about 50 I think with 50 you can write/set) on it, too. I have a Sony Discman plugged into it and can play along with the family asleep. Has a phrase trainer and a rhythm option with a ton of different drum loops. Has pitch control, too, to sync the sound with your guitar, etc.,.

    The one thing I had and sent back during the trial period with Musician's Friend was the Behringer V-amp2. Couldn't get a decent crunch without running a pedal into it (which defeats the purpose). Opinions vary.

    The effects aren't that good, but the Zoom 505 is a good size to throw in a bag w/ a cord and pair of folding headphones. Not much more expensive than the original pocket rocket either.

    Line 6 has some interesting products. Maybe I'll pick up a Line 6 combo instead. It's an exciting time in the world of music technology.
