Does the Job
For the price it is a solid value and performs as expected.
Obviously, the 8 outputs is a key selling point. It's rare that you'll ever need more than that, unless you're trying to record a very large group of musicians at once. Two inputs allows for two seperate headphone mixes in mono or a single mix in stereo. I personally just use a single mono mix just to simplify things and keep the workflow going. Anyone who expects a recording phase headphone mix to sound perfectly like a final mixed product ready for mastering is being unrealistic.
The overall quality of sound is what you would expect from Behringer, if not just a bit above. As long as you have all your gain staging set up properly the individual players will all have their own overall volume adjustment right there at their fingertips so it can actually; if you let the players control this stage themselves, save some time building a mix that everyone will be comfortable with.
In my experience, the HA-8000 has been quite clean enough, static and crunch wise, and has plenty of headroom to really drive a set of phones if needed for a louder group or a heavy hitting drummer. Of course, your choice in headphones will significantly impact the overall quality of sound that your players recieve.
I've used many different headphone amps over the years and I think that the HA8000 holds it's own well vs. some more expensive models. Behringer has stepped up their game over the years and they now are a reputable company in that they make solid "near pro" equiment at affordable prices.
I reccomend the Powerplay Pro-8 HA8000 to anyone looking for a good solid headphone amp.
It's the job.
So do not register with deaf musicians, especially the saturation transients are very ugly ...
This is not the top, but for the price, hard to complain.
You can switch to listening to two stereo inputs, switchable to mono on each channel ...
I used it in time to distribute the radio signals to the plays and headphones facilitators on mobile facilities, and send other signals in typical treatments to the needs of radio.
Also served one or two times if the studio still plays for and headphones.
I saw a group of musicians HA8000 use to distribute their in-ear.
I've never had any problems with mine, and I've never heard of this product a little specific, either good or bad.
For me, nothing to report, mine works, no problems.
