pic Upbeat Audio has introduced the Boostaroo Revolution, a pocket-sized audio amplifier and two-way splitter that provides high-end headphones (greater than 60 ohm impedance) with high-definition 3-channel surround sound quality. “The Revolution has been scaled down to about the size of a disposable lighter to match the size of the new, smaller MP3 players and features the same durable, high-gloss white plastic housing as today’s popular iPods.” The Revolution, which will be priced “under $80,” uses two AAAA batteries (included) that will provide about 20 hours of constant use.

« Mix: Microsoft/Sony, U2, Rio Carbon Pearl, Gates

If this is anything like the previous offerings from this company, it will suck in a way that shall become the stuff of legend.

Boostaroos are the biggest waste of money in audio.  Nothing but noise.  You’re MUCH better off learning to build, or paying someone to build, a CMOY.

Not true. The first generation, which I purchased had a terrible hiss. When Boostaroo was purchased by a reputable audio outfit, they changed the chip in the system and with the 2nd Gen ( which I also bought ) there is no detection of a hiss. Granted, they aren’t in the same class as CMOY’s or Xin’s for portable Amp’s, but with it’s ability to allow more than one pair of headphones connected to the one player, it does the job and does provide a boost in sound while cleaning up the audio. The reputation as a product that creates nothing but hiss will probably never go away.
