It's... an amp
About the best thing I can say about the Honeytone N-10 is that when you want to play a guitar and don't care about tone or any of that nonsense, it's there. The 2" speaker is junky, the build quality is too light not to get thrashed around on your desk, by the cable, and the promised leather handle disappeared somewhere along the line, leaving a painfully disappointing and obvious soft plastic handle in its stead (leather does not have injection dots on the back of the handle). But it makes a sound and when you play it through a pair of headphones it sounds good enough. And it makes a cute little desk toy at work.
Change speaker for 16 Ohms and add a speaker out, or it's a waste of money.
The amp does sound cool and has some neat tones, but there's a flaw which guarantees it fails eventually in normal use. The power amp chip in it (TDA7052: https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/data-sheet/TDA7052B.pdf) is pushed into FAILURE when you crank the volume. The datasheet shows (pg.7, fig.9) that with the stock 8 Ohm speaker, it should be working at 6V max on the power supply, when this device works off a 9v battery! It should use a 16 ohms speaker to properly work at 9v without issues. So, I hightly recommend that you change the speaker for a 16 Ohms one, and add a speaker out while you're at it, or it's a waste of money to keep buying these as they burn up.
