OVERVIEW

Great Vox bass tone that you can use anywhere, anytime.

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

This unit is very nice for just practice. I utilize the aux inputs from my mp3 player to have tracks to play with. This really sucks the battery down quickly. Average 4 hrs max of battery life with the aux being used.
The drums tracks are very limited and difficult to manipulate with one hand.
This function could have been replaced 2 band EQ instead.
Worth the money! just has some features and quirks I'm not crazy about.

I have the first bass vox plug, this one sounds the same with the addition of a rhythm option (three styles). The rotating plug feature is nice. For some reason this plug does not have the same volume as the original with the same bass. Overall if you have the original i would stick with that one.

        Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Bass Headphone Amp:

        This headphone amp is lightweight, and the built-in metronome is a good feature. Unfortunately, the sound quality is poor. Constant loud hissing makes sounds like I'm listening to a cassette tape. My bass sounds muddy even with good headphones. The build quality feels cheap; the knobs are light, flimsy, and don't respond to fine adjustments.

                The three rhythm tracks are silly, and of very little utility. Head phone wire drapes across strings. Not enough volume to be useful for real practice or for playing along with a tablet. Tone control goes from hiss to almost no hiss. Just another piece of plastic electronica for the junk drawer. It would be a useful tool if it had 4x the volume.

                    I have the VoxAC30 for guitar but when I tried to play bass through it the sound did not work. Being pleased with the AC30 I merely went online and ordered the bass equivalent. This thing is LOUD and has amazing tone. I like the new swiveling plug and I get a kick out of the built in drum tracks in case I just want to noodle. I live in an apartment (you know, with a wife too) so this is really the best way to crank up my tunes and jam along. Highly recommend this.

                      Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Bass Headphone Amp:

                      I found sound quality to be.. sufficient. It does not give any "wow" effect to the sound.
                      Tone after 5 adds nothing but a hiss.
                      However, it is convinient and portable, and does exactly what is made for - allows to practice on top of embedded drums (not too much there, but drum sound does not nag you, as, for example, boss rc 300 drum machine does, so it is quite usefull for exercises), or external source. (I use it to learn songs from phone, including my own band draft recordings from studio). Volume level is high enough for me (however, I've got 6th string active bass, so it may have higher level of output), and 6th B string does not disappear.

                      I do not regret buying it. Hiss is the only thing that decreases value of this device, on my opinion.

                        Excellent sound quality and convenience for rehearsal, especially at home practice. The volume control allows for clear nuanced levels to get the sound level just right, unlike my old system of plugging headphones into the amp where I could never get the sound quite right and I was tethered to the amp. The additional port for a phone/tablet jack is also a huge plus. And, this little gizmo also has a few drum loops (albeit limited) to play along with. Also, It works well with a guitar. I should have bought this a long time ago. Highly recommended.

                                ...for what it is, this fits the bill nicely. I needed a practice amp so that I could practice quietly around the house while my honey was working or watching TV. Granted, don't be fooled for a minute that you're going to get Ampeg SVT 8-10 sound quality or even that much volume out of this little guy. But it sure beats jamming my chin against an unamplified instrument to hear the note. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

                                  While ideal for a quick practice session, the options on this are really limited, with only a couple of standard beats and no way to change tempo (that we saw at least), it was a disappointment. More so, with headphones plugged in there was lots of noticeable static in the background. We will be sending this back.

                                        Bring your own headphones to a personal practice session. Tiny controls for big fingered bassists. Rhythm track options geared toward rockers vice jazz cats, but fun anyway. Sound quality adequate. Hiss at moderate to high treble settings. OK box at this price point.
