Classic Vox tone you can take anywhere.

Offering the easiest way to enjoy true analog amplifier sound in your headphones, the amPlug series has been a bestseller since it first appeared in 2007.

With amPlug 2, the crucial analog circuit has been drastically improved, and each model now provides three modes. Guitar types provide multi-effect functionality, and a rhythm function has been added to the bass type. A foldable plug mechanism that rotates 180 degrees and an auto power-off function are additional features that contribute significantly to improved convenience and ease of use.

The amPlug is the simplest way to get serious sound; occupying virtually no space, it's an ideal choice for any guitarist or bassist.

Plug the amPlug into your guitar and enjoy serious sound. It's that simple!
To use the palm-sized amPlug, just plug it into your guitar and grab your headphones. Playing your guitar or bass with amPlug results in serious amp sound that's overflowing with presence. A wide range of variation is available, as the lineup consists of four models: "AC30" provides the AC30 top-boost sound, "Classic Rock" gives you the classic crunch sound of a UK-made 100W amp, "Metal" delivers the extreme high-gain sound of a US-made amp, and "Bass" is designed specifically for bass.

A completely analog design accurately simulates the circuits of classic tube amplifiers, resulting in a rich, detailed sound.

While retaining the fully analog multi-stage gain circuit, additional refinements have been made toward reproducing the sound and performance of real tube amps. These refinements include factors such as reproducing the way a tube amp responds to different guitars, pickups, and volume as well as recreating the sense of air movement within the speaker cabinet. As a result, the carefully selected circuit structure and components of the new amPlug delivers a more highly evolved sound.

Nine selectable effects provide a great range of sonic variation
The second-generation amPlug adds a variety of new functions. To give you more variety, each amp provides three modes. "AC30" provides use of a tremolo circuit, "Classic Rock" features a mid-boost, "Metal" gives you mid-cut and "Bass" allows the amount of gain to be switched. The three guitar-type models also provide nine selectable effects with three types of Chorus, Delay and Reverb, while "Bass" contains nine different rhythm patterns. With versatile sound and functionality that is uncommon of such a compact unit, these models enable you to get even more serious about your guitar or bass playing.

Foldable plug that rotates 180 degrees
The plug that you insert into your guitar can rotate in five steps up to 180 degrees, enabling it to be adjusted for optimal visibility. This design also allows even more compact storage in your guitar's case or gig bag.

Auto power-off function ensures longer battery life
We've added a function that automatically turns off the power even, if you leave the unit with the power on. Since this function works by detecting operations or audio signals within a certain length of time (30 minutes), it has absolutely no effect on normal use. This feature further enhances the convenience of the amPlug.

amPlug is the most convenient way to play
With the amPlug providing up to 17 hours of battery-powered operation, you'll be able to play anytime and anywhere. Since there's no need for a guitar cable, it's a great way of practicing at home, or warming up before a live performance or while on tour. Also, there's an AUX in jack for your MP3 player, so you can jam along with your favorite songs.

No need for a guitar cable! Plug it directly into your guitar; the latest version of this headphone guitar amp is the fastest way to get authentic amplifier sound.
The fully-analog circuit has been totally reworked for an even clearer and more present sound!
"AC30" provides the AC30 top boost sound.
Each model provides three amp modes, giving you even more variety.
Nine selectable effects (Chorus x 3, Delay x 3, Reverb x 3) are built into the guitar-type models.
A multi-stage gain circuit featuring VOX's proprietary analog technology perfectly reproduces the complex distortion created by a vacuum tube amplifier.
New folding plug mechanism rotates 180 degrees to fit any guitar
Play anytime, anywhere with up to 17 hours of battery life
Use the AUX input to jam along with your smartphone, tablet, or MP3 player

    As reviewed by Jerry on 12/30/2014

    When I ordered mine they were backordered from Vox. After waiting 60 days with no luck, I settled for the old style lead version since that was the only one they had left in stock. Bad decision! It was impossible to get a clean sound out of it. So I returned it to my local GC (with no hassle of course), and to my surprise, they had just unloaded a shipment of the new Amplug 2 AC30. After swapping I was in a hurry to get it home and see how it sounded. I couldn't be happier!!!!!! Great range of tone from clean to crunchy. Easy to use with simple controls. I am just getting serious about learning to play guitar (after a few years of just strumming decades ago), so lots of scales are a part of my everyday routine. Now I can join my wife and the dogs on the couch, practice my scales, or plug in my smart phone and play along with a track, and not feel like I'm spending too much time in my man cave/music room. This is the investment I've made in my guitar playing, other than my Epi Dot of course.

  • Works Great When It Works

    As reviewed by edward on 7/7/2015

    The problem is that the AC30 (2nd gen) cuts out after about 2 minutes. I believe there is a manufacturing or design problem in the standby circuitry which is supposed to switch to standby mode after 10 minutes of silence. I had two of these AC30's with the exact same problem. Initially, it works perfectly with the LED showing green, amber or red depending on the mode. The FX also gave the aural beeps (1, 2, or 3) for the intensity of the effect. After about a week the LED no longer stayed on. Still worked correctly though. Then after another week, it would just stop working in the middle of playing. After waiting about 3 or 4 minutes, it would work correctly again but for only a minute, then would cut off again. If VOX can correct this it will be one a great plug-in. But until then, be aware! And you might ask yourself why the AC30 is suddenly only $29.99 when the other models are still $39.99 & $49.99.
