    I’m thinking about buying a Deluxe Reverb Tonemaster. The only thing holding me back is the lack of a headphone jack. Is there anything I can use, I’m guessing through the XLR out, that will allow me to use headphones with this amp?

    I guess you would just need a simple headphone amp?

    I do not know what's your use, but I bought my little Yamaha thr5 to be able to play at night without waking up my little kid or being heard by the neighbours. I thought the headphone out was a necessity for that, then I realised you can play at such a low volume with a convincing tone that I do not really need to plug headphones. Now I just play out of the speakers, and I find it more natural and more pleasing in the end, and nobody hears me without being in the same room than me.

    Mooer Audiofile Headphone Amp/Cab Simulator pedal.
    It's one of those mini pedals all the kids are raving about.

    I’m running the xlr out into a small mixer. Headphones out of mixer. You can play backing tracks as well.

    +1 on the small mixer. I got one for about 50 bucks. Six channels or so.

    Btw...The Tone Master has cabinet sim on the xlr out.

    My TMDR comes tomorrow but I’ll be running the xlr out to my little 2-input audiobox recorder and listening to it that way when I need to use headphones. All the suggestions above will work, too.
