OVERVIEW

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.

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!
"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

This unit is a must have for anyone who needs to practice without disturbing others. The sound quality relative to the price is outstanding. Just one thing, like any other device make sure you are using decent headphones because that impacts it quite a bit (as one would reasonably expect). That said though I don't think you can go wrong considering the price and the sound quality. I honestly believe an argument could be made that this is one of the best practice amps EVER. For a young guitarist setting out to learn the instrument one could get this as a first amp and use the money saved to get a better guitar or get their guitar professionally set up.

This isn't a criticism of the unit but something I would love to see Vox do is to make a multi-channel version of the amplug. Given their small size it seems like this would be plausible. Maybe a version of this that incorporates both the AC30 and the Classic Rock or Lead into one unit which could be switched between.

Great way to practice in private. Plenty loud in good headphones. There is a pretty good sellection of effects, but access is complex. ie: press this button twice to access one effect, three times to access another. I wish they would have just designed it with three seperate buttons. The housing feels delicate where the connector attaches. Not exactly cheap to buy.

    Comments about Vox amPlug 2 AC30 Guitar Headphone Amp:

    I've always kept an acoustic guitar close to the living room so I can pick it up and play whenever the mood strikes me. Now I've added an electric along with this little gem so I can do the same when I'm feeling more electric. The FX are a little overkilled, but not too much. There are probably lead players who would say the opposite. Other than that the thing is great.

        Comments about Vox amPlug 2 AC30 Guitar Headphone Amp:

        Love all the effects & clarity of sound. I hooked it up with a 3' cable rather than plugging the unit directly into my guitar [Strat] - seems easier to switch the effects this way, among other things.

              Comments about Vox amPlug 2 AC30 Guitar Headphone Amp:

              It's a handy gadget. Can be played fairly loud to the point you can feel it almost in your chest and your head will be buzzing for a spell afterwards--and yet not disturb your house or your neighbors at all. So--there's that. Of the effects I really like the delay the best. I've purchased an Vox Amphone AC30 (the more expensive headphone version of the Amplug) as well but I don't care for that nearly as much. It's harder to adjust volumes and settings and there are no effects as far as I can tell though I was under the impression there would be. You can reach the volumes and it seems sturdier FWIW--personally though I like the delay and the other options.

              For the money the Amplug is easily affordable--though one should take care with them. They are fragile as I've found out. Mine tend to eat batteries--I think it's because I use them a lot. I practice more with them than my regular amps. I think I just like the Vox sound a lot but there's also I can play really loud without others complaining about it.

                I bought this to try as an interface between an electric guitar and a p.a. mixer, and it works exactly as it should. I am still working out changing settings on the fly, which has to be done by feel, mostly; that said, it's not that complicated.
