Headphone Amp with Cable Lead

Does anyone know of a headphone amp that doesn’t plug directly in to the bass? All the ones I’ve seen are built right on the 1/4" plug, but that won’t work on my Ibanez basses. I’m looking for something that has a short cable lead.

Anything like that exist?

You could use this to adapt to your bass.

Hmm. It’s a thought, for sure. So is a short 1’ extension cable. But I don’t think that right angle would fit in the jack cavity. =/

Scamazon sells 6" adapters with a 1/4" male and female end.


Have you looked at the vox headphones? It’s just a normal plug, electronics in the headphones


I had no idea those even existed. That’s perfect. I’m going to have to get those now.

Ok this cable comes with my wireless kit. It’s probably the one you are talking about. Check on Amazon.

There’s a whole ton of bass preamps and/or DI’s with headphone jacks. Really, really common.

There’s also things like the Darkglass Element.

You can also use a Zoom B1four for this and have the perfect practice tool - headphone out, tuner, and drum machine (in addition to all the effects and amp sims).


+1 to this. Make sure it includes a battery if you want to be mobile.
