    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.

    Are there headphones that plug into an XLR connector? If not, maybe there should be.

    IMO... if you don't have a small mixer or interface to use and just need headphone capability... a Behringer PM1 or P2 (along with an XLR cable) would get the job done quickly and easily without much expense.

    XLR is line level, it will not drive a set of headphones adequately.... if at all.

    I just got a DR Tonemaster and also wanted to have a headphone out. I got the Behringer P1 and it works great. And it attaches nicely with its clip to the handle of the amp.

    Nice!!! Does this Behringer P1 let you listen in stereo mode from you headphones, feeding it with the mono xlr input from the Tone Master?

    I think you're really going to like that amp. I'm a lifelong PTP hand wired, tube, vintage or boutique amp snob, and the TM series of amps made a staunch believer out of me. They also take pedals extremely well. Although the TMs break up very nicely on their own. The attenuator works great. I like both models a lot. I own the Deluxe Reverb version. Like I stated above, I've owned a lot of expensive tube amps and I like this Fender TM as well as anything I've owned. Plus, it only weighs 23 lbs. Both amps reproduce the original tube counterpart tone very, very, closely. But the main reason I bought the TM Deluxe Reverb was for great tone, whether it accurately reproduces the original blackface tone or not. And it does sound killer. Highly recommend the TM series amps.

    Want a simple solution for using headphones.

    Would something like this work? A simple xlr to 1/8th cord adapter, then headphones?
