Behringer HA4700 overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer HA4700 headphone amplifier is a very full-featured, professional, 4-channel rackmount unit. It provides balanced Main input and output connectivity and 4 independent headphone amplifiers, with individual level, balance and stereo/mono monitoring control, in addition to individual channel EQ's.

The separate HA4700 Aux and Direct inputs, also allocated per channel, allow for further customizing of the various mixes each amplifier can receive from the main console. The paralleled main outputs allow for clean cascade operation of multiple units.

The HA4700 is a great value; it's clean, loud, feature-rich and very reasonably priced.

    Behringer HA4700 reviews

    HA4700 - Headphone Amplifier is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced Signal Loop-thru - Yes! I have a keyboard rig with a line mixer for three stereo 'boards and electronic crossover that drives the power amplifiers. The HA4700 was the only headphone amplifier solution that allowed me to loop the mixer output through and maintain full balanced signal paths to keep out the hum and buzz. I'm also really happy with the headroom the HA4700 has to drive my favorite low impedance headphones. I haven't found a use for all the other headphone channels yet, but just having full balanced loop-thru is well worth stepping up from the single personal headphone amps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-So Don't really know why but out of the equipment I bought, I'm least impressed with this. Seems like the output adjustment is either real low, or real high. And the buttons don't allow adjustments between (clicks to next level). Difficult for me to get the volume correct. I have to adjust on the mixer to dial it in. Guess it's not so bad given the low price. Also I don't have experience with any other unit, so take it for what it's worth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT UNIT this is a really great unit for the money I have used these at work and decided to buy one for my home studio for vocals.For the price it is the best unit out there.I have several behinger products.The grat thing is having outputs on the front and two on the back for each of 4 channels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not only for music. Amatuer Radio Uses I purchased this unit to use to allow up to 4 people or in our case, 2 people and 1 amplified speaker, to work with one radio. We always had problems when more than one operator at a time was at the rig, but this unit allows us to tailor not only vol, but tone. The metal construction made it impervious to RF interference. Buyng 2 more next year for our club.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Your Buck Headphone Amplifier/Distributor There's a lot of junk online, so thank goodness for reviews. I found this sucker for a podcast I was running through a handheld recorder and needed to 4 inputs for headphones to run through it. I haven't tried every other headphone amp on the market, but I can vouch for this being exactly what it says it is. Real simple. Real quality. Follow your heart.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Behringer HA4700 I purchased this unit as a replacement to my 11 year old Samson S phone headphone amp/mixer, which had some blown transistors. I like all of the HA4700 features and the input output options; however, the sound is a bit brittle on the top end and the bass seemed to lack control and definition. I returned this unit for a refund and got my S Phone repaired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cheap amp We are using this as 4 separate headphone amplifier by using the aux in. We have 4 separate aux sends from our sound board that go into the aux inputs. Each musician has his own separate mix and level. Great flexibility. The amplifier is a little noisy when you need to turn it up but hey.... it is not a $300 unit. For the price you can't beat it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a central headphone point I bought it to allow me to use my Koss Pro4AA (studio grade low-impedance) phones without having to turn on a power amp. (No Ipod can drive these.) Also lets me consolidate other headphone ports.The HA4700 has two rear jacks for each of the 4 amps, so you could have up to 12 phones attached to this unit.The sound quality is excellent - it really shouldn't be anything but. I don't know where the comment below is coming from. Yet, on my high impedance phones in total quiet I get a very tiny nearly-inaudiable 60Hz hum, that I don't hear with the low impedance phones that require more drive. That cost a star. Could be a ground problem but I think it is the power supply since I hear it on mute and it doesn't get louder with volume increase. It is driven by another piece of Behringer equipment inches away so no excuses anyway.Controls have detents that I'd rather see continuous but no big deal.BH price was far better than ... was offering.
