Overview

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.

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.

Highlights
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!
"Bass" is designed specifically for low frequencies, offering a wide-range response.
Each model provides three amp modes, giving you even more variety.
"Bass" model includes nine built-in rhythm patterns for convenient and effective practicing.
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

I understand that this is just an inexpensive practice device, and that it should be expected to lack certain features—that's fine. What I don't like is that a potentially serious issue caused by the lack of a very common feature is not referenced by the manufacturer's literature/packaging at all. Users should be warned. Most everything I've ever plugged a bass guitar into has a button next to the input which allows the user to cut back the gain of the amp by [usually] 15 dB. This is for 'hotter,' active pickups. It allows the hotter signal to play through at a reasonable level without risk of damage to the amp or drivers. (Very few modern inexpensive practice amps are missing such a button, but will at least have a 'gain' knob for manual control.) Simply put, this device doesn't have such a feature. I played my active bass through it at a loud-but-reasonable volume, and it blew one of the drivers in my headphones. Luckily, my headphones were warrantied, and I was able to get them replaced. When I first noticed the lack of such a feature, I assumed that they must've figured out another way to deal with this issue. They haven't. I haven't tried a passive bass with this product, but I imagine it would work fine. Heed my warning—if you use an active bass, do not use this! It will blow out your phones!

      Things I like about this product: The stuff that it does.

      Things I don't like: Unrest in the Middle Easy which, if you stop and think about it, probably is not related to my practicing the bassguitar (one word).

      It does what its supposed to. Simple clean in form and function.
      The drum effects that are built in are a nice feature to help with timing.
      I have also purchased the Metal version for guitar.
      My only recommendation to the people who need it loud is to
      buy a good set of headphones. My cheaper earbuds break up at higher
      volumes but my Skull candy over the ear model sounds great.

          I just wanted something I could carry around with my bass and plug into without bother my neighbors, or the other people in my office. This works perfectly for that. There's an auxiliary input so you can play along with recordings if you want. There's also some pre-recorded drum tracks included so you can jam out.

          Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Bass Headphone Amp:

          I have the box amplug AC 30 and I love that one and now that I own a bass I just recently got these from GC.com. At first I was going to return them because the volume was so low using my using my Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones ... The same headphones I use with the AC30 amplug I couldn't figure it out. I decided to try my apple Earbuds and boom!!! It's bass heaven!! I don't know why my DT770 don't work with the bass plug but it works fine with the apple earbuds????!!! Anyway I'm keeping the bass plug. I'm loving it so far.... Now I'm try to see how long the new batteries I put in will last....and I don't use the rhythm section I make my own. I haven't even turn that part on lol

              When I would prefer not to annoy everyone in my family, I plug this and a set of headphones into my bass so that I can practice quietly without disturbing anyone. It actually gives some pretty great tones and it is a really cool feature that it has several rhythm drum effects.

                    I frequently practice bass through the headphone out on my amplifier. I purchased this headphone amplifier with the hopes that it would sound better, and reduce some of the buzz I get when I use headphones through my large amplifier. But it did not live up to my hopes; it still produces the same buzz. This may just be a problem with playing through headphones in general.

                    Although this headphone amp did not fix my problem, it's still a great little amplifier. It works just as described and sounds pretty good. It's not as adjustable as a full size amp, obviously, but it does a very good job for it's small size.

                        Used the Bass version to practice with mp3s while traveling and for late-night. Was a bit hard to adjust volume balance between the mp3 input device and the bass without having to pump the bass up to overdrive mode (green LED), which was a bit TOO much for the maxed mp3 input. Still, gets the job done and the tone output into headphones is acceptable. Fits in the case too, so no need to drag a practice amp.

                                Bought this about a month ago and really enjoyed it. Good sound quality and it's easy to use. The drum backing tracks are also super convenient. Unfortunately it's very cheaply made and the metal part of the 1/4 inch plug loosened in the plastic and stopped working. The instructions do warn you to be careful plugging it in and out because of this. Not worth buying in my opinion.

                                  great product with a slight flaw, im admittedly rough on just about everything I own, but just sitting on the edge of my bed playing and shifting around occasionally I managed to snap the body off the plug, I love the privacy this gives me to play late at night but my thought would be that it would be nice to have maybe a 6 inch cord instead of a straight plug so that I can clip the body of this mini amp to my strap or somewhere a little more protected.

                                  I use this product just to practice. I am In USA for study and I found this really helpful, because I do not have to carry such as big and heavy bass amp just in case I move to another city.

                                    Living in a condo, it can be difficult to practice without bothering the neighbors. This fills the ticket. I can practice anytime without bothering anyone. Even others watching TV in the same room.

                                      I wanted to practice my bass but not used the practice amp I had, this is perfect for that
                                      It is small, easy to carry and good sound with my headphones, so just what I needed
                                      The only problem was not have one in stock, but it was ordered and delivered to my home, no problem
