    Samson C-Que 8

    The best headphone amp for the $$$. I owned two Samson headphone amps. Samson C-Que 8 and S.amp and both are AMAZING sound clarity output. Big enhancement when you use Monster cables, make a note to use the right cable and you will not be disappointed! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! THANKS!

    Great little headphone amp!

    This is a great little HP amp. I bought four of them to use for recording large choirs that need to hear backing tracks to follow along with. They have eight outputs each. If you buy the optional rackmount unit you can fit two of them side by side in one rack space, and they can be daisyy-chained indefinitely. That gave me 32 stereo outs in just 2 rack spaces! Doesn't sound AMAZING, but for the price, and what I imagine most people need, it's great.

    Good little headphone amp

    Its cheap and it works, but it seems to color the signal somewhat. When running the cans through the 003 rack and then switching over to the samson its like somethings missing. It doesn't seem to have the same depth as the 003. I know we are talking about $1200 equipment to $100 equipment, but I use the 003 for headphone monitoring and use the samson for people are tracking in the studio. Its a great tool for tracking and being able to run 8 headphones off of this thing is great. It's 4 channel, but you got 4 outs on front and 4 on back. There is only one pair of ins so only one mix can be sent to all the cans mono or stereo.

    This is a great headphone amp for the studio and road use. Its got tons of gain. It can drive any older studio phones (like the AKG 240s) and Walmart Fodder (50 ohm Koss things). Its easy enough for any client to use in a recording booth too. No frills. But good sound. HERE'SOMETHING IMPORTANT TOO: It can accept the hot levels that the Digidesign 192 IO can spit out. Many headphone amps cannot accept such a hot signal and they distort from the getgo (only way around it is to solder 10db pads). So if you're looking for a little addition to your HD setup, this will give you clean volume for days....
