50 years, all types of music, last 20 years in the Praise band at church.
Sounds great!My G&L M2500 sound great through this headphone amp. As the adjustment controls don't have any dentents for reference, it took a bit of tweaking for me to get the sound I desired. As I am blind, some reference other than numbers would have been helpful, such as a stop at either end of the pot.
Other than that, the amp sounds super and the headphones perform very well when listening to music.
The cable seems a bit thin but there is shrink tubing where the cable goes into the left ear piece and behind the eighth inch connector. The cable may be the weakest link only time and usage will tell.

Recovering pro bass player
Nice but you get one sound3.0 because "really good," but not "Great." :-)
* Convenient use compared to the amplug I've been using for a few years now. I bought these because my new MTD bass has a recessed cable jack in which the amplug barely fits, and then only in an awkward position that exposes the headphone plug to repeated banging on anything I brush up against (which then causes some loud bad noises in the headphones - not fun). The amPhone cable plugs straight in and is much cleaner.
* Compressor is cool.
* AUX input is out of the way and works well (as does the same on the amPlug).
* Headphone quality seems pretty good.
* My only complaint is that the amp sound is limited to a "scooped" EQ. Many players are surely going to like that, and it's nice for slapping, but it's not always to my taste. In particular, this EQ doesn't cut through as well when playing along with recordings, but sounds pretty woofy. I can EQ some mids back in on the instrument, but in general it doesn't sound as good to me as the amPlug. It would be great to have a real EQ on the amPhones, or even 2 or 3 selections in amp modeling.
In any case, I'll get used to it and will be using the amPhones because they are way easier to use that the amPlug and don't leave stuff sticking out for bumping on a countertop or something.
