    I recently received a neat product, call Boostaroo, that is basically a small battery operated amplifier. I was not happy with the sound output of the Treo when using Ptunes, I suspect the amplifier in the Treo is underpowered.

    This little device is like adding a subwoofer to your headphones--much cleaner, fuller sound, even with bass boosted no distortion. It's like carrying another third of a treo with you, managable even when exercising. It has three headphone jacks to share music. Have not yet tried it with computer speakers. So far I'm happy and impressed with it.

    I was just looking at that yesterday. How was your battery life? It said it will last 20 to 30 hours, but I found another similar product on ebay with the same claim to boost volume by 40% but with 120 hours on 2 batteries.

    Don't know about the device on Ebay (but if it sounds too good to be true...). But the Boostaroo has a long list of satisfied users in the motorcycling community.

    Just ordered mine. Thanks for the tip. The Treo 600 sounds "OK" without it, but when I really want to crank it up, it needs some ooommph.

    Never thought to put my Boosteroo on my Treo! It works great on my notebook and portable DVD player. Its a good product.

    I have owned mine a couple of years and never have had a problem with it. I use it when flying to listen to DVDs. The unit with sound eliminating headphones make a great combo.

    Hey there PeteC.

    I'm a happy user of some noice-canceling headphones (Bose QC-2's) and I've been looking for something like this. Do you use the Bose? If so, does the Boostaroo allow you to go to "high" on the box?

    TIA.

    Got my Boostaroo. It definitely cranks up the volume but I was hoping for a little improvement in the bass output. I have Ptunes with the graphic equalizer. If I boost the bass with the GE, I get distortion (and not a lot of bass) with or without Boostaroo. I'm using a pair of Bose stereo earphones with stereo adapter. Any theories?

    If you want a REAL headphone amplifier, go to www.fixup.net and get his "super micro".

    It is getting rave reviews by audiophiles and is very cheap. If you have halfway decent headphones, it is a MUST for any portable audio device.

    For portability and for travel I use the Aiwa HP-CN5 with my Boostaroo. I currently use this set for my portable DVD player. It works well with the Treo 600.

    You think 160 bucks is very cheap? Could you please share some of your wealth with me?
