    ‘ve owned similar, more expensive practice products (Tascam MP-GT1 and Line 6 Pocket Pod). This product has advantages (and disadvantages) over both.

    Unlike the Line 6:
    1) The batteries are rechargeable in the Axehead, so if you leave it on by accident, you don’t have to replace anything, just recharge with USB.
    2) The Axehead does not drain the battery when left plugged in.
    3) It does not feature the same array of effects available in the Line 6.

    Like the Line 6, it supports the use of any external device with a headphone output to supply music to jam to. That means you can use the Axehead to practice along with your iPad, phone, laptop, or anything else you want. This is a huge plus for either device (Line 6 or Axehead) if you like to jam along with tracks on Youtube. That also means you can download freeware like Audacity and use it to slow down MP3s, chop out the guitar solo, or alter the pitch. That also means you are not limited to any audio formats – anything with an 1/8″ headphone output will work.

    Unlike the Tascam:
    1) The Axehead does not play MP3s. That means you need another device, like an iPhone or laptop to play back music.
    2) Since the Axehead does not play MP3s, you cannot natively slow them down, change the pitch, or loop sections of the song, like you can with the Tascam.
    3) It does not feature the same array of effects available in the Tascam.
    4) It does not have a metronome, like the Tascam.

    Unlike both the Tascam and the Line 6, the Axehead does not have a tuner.

    All said, this is a fantastic product. It does not have a number of the more advanced features available in similar products, but you can make up with that using freely available software. The price is great, and the simplicity of the Axehead makes it a pleasure to use. I have not encountered the earbud problem others have reported here.

    There are a lot of these little headphone amps on the market. I chose this one because it was the only one that had a built-in, rechargeable battery and because it was no nonsense. All the variations from Vox make choosing one a real crap shoot. I just wanted a basic amp sound with overdrive and that’s what I got. So far, I’m very pleased with it. The sound quality is bright and can be turned up very loud. The circuit does a good job of mimicking a Marshall-style amp. I’ve tried it with Fender single coils, P90s, and humbuckers. They all sound good. Great for practicing in my apartment without disturbing the neighbors.
