Sheesh, what a piece of chit. Not only does it introduce a lot of hiss, but the amplification is just weak considering 2 "AA" batteries (maybe a couple dB as far as I can tell), and battery life is about 8-10 hours with alkalines (??). Also, there's no "bypass" switch if the batteries run out or you want to save power. And I paid $20 plus shipping for this? rolleyes.gif

Into "the" drawer it goes... biggrin.gif

Check out Headroom (http://www.headroom.com/). Their "Airhead" amp might be more than $20 (it's $119), but Headroom products are top-notch. I own their "Little" and "Home" headphone amplifiers and highly recommend them.

Supposedly, the Airhead runs for 40 hours on 3 AAA batteries.
