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.

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.

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!
"Classic Rock" delivers the classic crunch of a UK-made 100W amp.
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

I didn't know what to expect from this device, and, honestly, was skeptical that this was little more than a gimmick. however, the good folks at vox have really created a great product here. don't expect perfect valve amp tones (obviously), but this little fella does deliver rich, clear tones which sound mighty fine through a good pair of head phones. I got the classic rock version, which allows one to control gain, tone and volume, as well as to select from chorus, reverb or delay (and, if you read your owner's manual, you will discover that each effect has three available variations, and that a mid boost is also an option if needed). quite a lot of sound control and quality for such a tiny, ultra portable and inexpensive piece of kit.

2 stars - it does work as a headphone amp. But it sounds like playing thru a distorted, battery powered transistor radio. Thankfully I used a 20% off coupon on this.

              Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

              I use my guitar for songwriting and messing around, often when when my wife and kids are in bed. This device allows me to get a really powerful sound from the guitar even using a standard set of iPhone ear buds. And best of all, I'm not bothering anybody else, or keeping them up at night. The controls are very easy to use, and the range of sounds are incredible. You can shut off all the effects for really clean sound, or turn up the gain and jam like Joe Perry. I like the reverb and delay effects a lot, but I find the chorus effect to be less than ideal (reminds me of an out-of-tune guitar). You don't have much control over the effects other than on/off, so don't throw out your pedals. But all in all, this is a very impressive little pocket amp. Four stars - one star off due to the poor quality of the chorus.

                Bought it for "quiet" practice since I am surrounded by neighbors, and didn't want to tick them off (in apartment). This thing has amazing sound! Distortion is very crisp, added effects make it fun to play around with too. Felt very light and fragile, but just be careful, take care of it, it'll last.

                Great little practice amp for when the kids are studying or sleeping. The amp gives great tonal options for the Classic Rock enthusiast. I don't have the amplug 1, but the amPlug 2's variable input jack is pretty handy.

                    I use this to practice while my family watches tv. I don't disturb them and they let me practice. I only gave it 4 stars because it seems like it might be on the fragile side, they could have made it more solid in my opinion.

                    Performs well, this works with a small external speaker plugged in to First tune guitar, then I can plug in my earbuds and play without waking up the neighbors, allowing me more after hours practice time! I do wish there was a model with multiple modes without having to buy a separate unit though.

                        I'm amazed at the quality of this thing. I can lower the gain and adjust the tone dials and get a clean sound. If I want heavy I can crank up the gain. Also there are 3 effects built in with 3 variations of each effect for a total of 9 (chorus, delay and reverb). There is also a mid and high boost option.

                        I simply plug it into my Les Paul and jam on the couch with my ear buds in while family watches TV. Every guitarist can find this useful.

                              I use this tiny amp with a goods set of earbuds with my semi - hollow body Ibanez, and I am actually able to hear the nuances of the hollow cavities of the guitar and the sustain they add. Perfect to use in the same room with my wife while she practices her mandolin as it doesn't disturb her practice. I have this Classic Rock, and the AC30 version. I love them both, but if you enjoy playing with reverb and delay, get this one. The effects are effective and sound great with a good set of earbuds or headphones.

                              Highly recommended to anyone who plays guitar.

                                Just starting electric guitar and I decided to get one of these so I'm not annoying everyone in the house with my amp. I am very impressed with the amount of functionality this little amp has! It's plenty loud too. I had bought a set of large headphones to use with this but I ended up just using my phone earbuds and they work great. I found a short 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable at home and was then able to play jam tracks through my phone or laptop while also playing along with them using any effect I wanted. Battery life is about what I expected. I don't need to replace the batteries for several days of steady playing and those are just general purpose batteries. Going to use alkalines next. I really like this product!

                                  I truly enjoy this product. I does a lot in terms of effects, sound quality and versatility. I use both my guitar and bass through it. It's dynamite in a small package. Definitely worth the price. Jack is versatile enough that it fits in almost any guitar jack, however I have not yet tried a Strat with it yet. That will be the true test in terms of fitting any quitar.

                                  The construction is a bit cheap, try to avoid dropping it or hitting it with anything. the sound it creates however is satisfying with plenty of tone control and distortion. A great practice solution.

                                  Does what it's supposed to do. Play and listen without bothering anyone or letting anyone know your playing. The added FX and swivel jack are a plus.
                                  Bought one a few years ago only offered a clean direct signal with low and high. However, I let it sit too long with battery and corroded. Tried to clean but had to toss it. 39$ good price.
