    Take a look at the ART units...

    They're in the same price range as the units mentioned and they have some nice features...

    I have a powerplay and an HP4. I like the headroom of the HP4 but dislike the features (like the lack of inputs). I hate the headroom and noise of the powerplay but love the aux inputs for each channel.

    The Behringer didn't cost me a dime so I don't mind and the HP4 is what I like to use the most because of the headroom (plenty for a drummer for example).

    Interesting, we have one in the studio and it's very quiet, when I first installed it I had an earth loop problem but I fixed that up and it works great. For the price it's hard to beat and no one has complained about the quality of the headphones. My old system was a 100 watt a side power amp with a headphone bus on the output, very loud but was a bit noisy.

    With volume, remember that the ohms of the headphones affects the output of the headphone amp.

    Cheers
    Alan.

    Honestly I'm thinking of dumping both of them because I found a Rane HC-6 for a crazy deal.

    Anything Rane makes is pretty solid too.

    I recently found a Behringer HA4700 on Craigslist for $50. Very happy with it. Especially the AUX inputs. Great for cranking guitars in a drummers mix while tracking, yet keeping a good mix for others.
    PC Win7-64-24G i7-4790k/Cubase 10 Pro 64-bit/2-Steinberg UR824's/ADAM A7x/Event TR8/SS Trigger Plat Deluxe/Melodyne 4 Studio/Other things that don't mean anything if a client shows up not knowing what it wants.
