This little VOX I/O plug is a nice piece of technology... it does everything it says it will do and more! You get the unit and USB cable to your computer, and you get a download code for a fully functioning VOX JamVOX III version 3.03

Awesome AMP + Cabinet + Effects Models + Drum Tracks to choose from.

You really can't go wrong with this!

I run windows 7 64bit

Purchased the device and downloaded software and read manual online. Product does not come with any documentation. In order to activate software, you need an activation code. After spending an hour online reading manual and trying to figure out how to get the code, tried Musician friend chat. After spending another 20 minutes on chat and registering the product, said I would need to contact VOX directly for the code. Did not want to spend any more time so asked for RMA number. Was told they would give me a RMA number but not pay return shipping unless I contact VOX directly. Did not confirm, but think this unit only comes with a 15 day trial for software and then you have to pay 99.00 for the licence. Mine is in the garbage. If you have 3 hours to get it working, may be worthwhile but think "software include" it is misrepresented by MF. At Minimum, it is a headache to get a software code. Have been purchasing from MF for many years and this was the 1st time I used chat. Disappointed with service.

    Comments about amPlug I/O Guitar Headphone USB Audio Interface with JamVOX III Software:

    I have bought TONS of gear from Musicians Friend and as of now this is the ONLY review I have done. WHY? Well I felt bad because SO MANY of the negative reviews for this item are misleading. I think this is an awesome product. What is it? It is a USB guitar interface PERIOD. Think Irig 2, or Apogee, etc. that's it. The problem is VOX has made numerous AMPLUGS that are stand alone plug and play headphone amps. But this is NOT one of those. But to me this is better. All you need is an ios device or a computer (i have a mac and an ipad mini) and you can jam away with the software of your choice. I use Bias FX on the ipad and Logic and Jamvox software on the Mac. Make sure you switch the device to battery power when you use an ipad or it will not work. I have done side by side comparisons with irig 2 and this is way better quality. PLUS you get the jamvox 3 software as well. This is a COMPLETE software package and has some unique features. It may be a hassle getting it installed, but if you can, DO IT. You don't have to use this interface to use the Jamvox software. You can use any USB interface that connects your guitar to the computer. Jamvox3 not only works as a stand alone software but is also a plugin that you can use in your DAW. This porduct is similar in quality to Line 6 POD farm from days gone by. Anyway, thats my quick take on it. Hope that helps.

      Instructions are almost nonexistent. Free
      Software download is only demo version.

      Complete version is Not free. Slightly deceptive offer

      No standalone headphone amp functionality. A huge opportunity missed. Bargain bin time. VOX, you blew it on this one.

              I should be able to plug in and rip , no .... This product needs more detailed written instructions . I get no guitar signal . Thought the unit was bad , returned it and have the same problem with the new one . I'm fairly good with this sort of thing but can't make it work . Wish I had a geek friend nearby ! Musicians Friend did a good job with their end .

              From MF's title I thought that this might doubles a headphone amp with a guitar. It does not do this at all. I will keep it an give it a try as a guitar interface for recording and see what it can do but I still need a icro amp

                Not bad, not great. Has a bit of a latency issue when using the JamVox III software. You have to download a sound driver from their Japanese website to correct it. But after installing the driver, it only worked with output to the headphone jack, not the output to the computer speakers. Also it didn't stop the problem just lesson it.

                Make sure you SET A RESTORE POINT FIRST!

                The USB driver for this product has not been updated since Windows 7. It crippled my wi-fi and caused system audio instability (the latter may have been the ASIO drivers provided with the product). It also appears that Korg/VOX no longer supports the product.

                It's cheap to experiment with, and yu might get lucky, but BE SURE TO SET A RESTORE POINT before you install.
