Review: Waza-Air (headphone & amplifier, all in one!)

The Waza-Air Wireless Personal Guitar Amplification System is so convenient: you plug them into your guitar, and it’s jam time! No more handling cables and amps. Watch Justin’s review here.

Thats quite a review… for people who are confused this is the product

Looks ok - its $899 here though (New Zealand) so quite spendy

Yeah $399.99 on they bay in the U.S. I always thought Boss stuff was a little overpriced… that’s just my opinion though.

I’ve not watched the video but not sure what the advantage here is over any other system + your own headset?

@Richard_close2u @DavidP @LievenDV In relation to question 3 of the giveaway questions: " Are you located within the European Union? This question is required. *"

EU only, or EU + UK, or even ‘continent of Europe’ (including UK, Switzerland, Norway, …)?

I’d be surprised if it doesn’t mean Europe in general. It specifically says they won’t post to Russia!
No address required to enter. If anyone I knows enters and wins, I can provide them with an address in Ireland and pick it up for them the next time I’m over (or they can pay for postage :wink:)
Did I just break the rules? :open_mouth:


I think @larynejg is in the best position to answer this

Hey @iainism and @LievenDV !

We can ship within the EUROPE continent - not EUROPEAN UNION. The only country excluded is Russia. I fixed the form - thanks for bringing this to my attention.



I researched the BOSS Waza air a while ago because I was interested. Pros are it’s fully wireless, and sounds great. Super low latency wireless. Cons are you can’t record with it (I think you can’t put it through a speaker either - can’t remember).

Most wireless headphones have latency that is too high to be useful. I did rig something up at home that lets me be mostly wireless, with my low latency gaming headphones (Astro A50s). Mustang GTX XLR out → Focusrite 2i2 → Ableton monitoring (because direct monitoring is too “thin”) → Focusrite 2i2 → Aux to Astro A50. Very low latency.

I tried it with a BOSS WL-20 as well for full wireless, but I keep getting interference with it, so I’m going to sell that. I use a guitar cable.

Long story short. It’s possible to do something like the Waza Air with a lot of other kit, but it’s complicated and also expensive. I just had most of the stuff laying around already.

The Waza Air looks like a pretty cool product.

Ditto, I tried a wireless system but the latency was aweful but theose are a little expensive, living in a flat a wirelss system would be great.


Damn, I got a question wrong, lol… Oh well, theres always a birthday .

eh why not just a plug in pair of headphones into a mustang micro etc?

Because that’s not wireless.

I do something similar with a Boss Pocket GT but it’s still a bit of a faff, and you still have a headphone cable that has a tendency to get tangled before use, or snagged during use.

I agree the difference in cost between the two options is significant though, which is why I’m not planning on buying the Waza Air any time soon.

Full wireless vs cable

[mod edit - political comment removed]

OK now watched the review, has some interesting features and I can see it being an on the road kind of useful tool, still very pricey but I guess not unexpected

Justin mentions that he uses AirPods Max. I wonder what would be the setup to use AirPods Max?
