    Though I never heard of this Vox amplug Headphone Bass Guitar Amplifier I was surprised to know that such an item existed, considering the last time I had seen a "powered headphone guitar amp set up" was in the mid 80's that a fellow bassist had owned. After doing an online search here, on MF (in hopes to find that same item) one of the gentlemen in Customer Service recommended this.

    When I first brought home a used electric Bass, my wife's first response was "First comes the bass, next comes some Huge Bass amp." Not with this ! While I'm trying to get familiar (again) with the bass this does the job without disturbing the wife and kids in the house. I just plug it in to my Bass, tweak the settings on the amplug and crank it in my headphones. I'm in my own world of music. I'm very impressed with what Vox has created and have told some of my fellow guitarists that these are also available for electric guitars as well ! The online product video of Bass Legend, Victor Wooten goes into more product details. I recommend watching it.

    Though I don't know what I'd want exactly from the "Effects" switch/settings it's nice to know that they are available in this portable device. Even though I played around with the "Effects" settings a few times, all I'm after is just that "simple" low bass tone. The fact that I don't have to worry about dragging out a small floor amp when I have free time to play my Bass or disturbing everyone in the house is a Plus...for now.

    I Like it ! I think for no more than what I was originally wanting to use this item for it's money Well Spent, at an Affordable Price.

    For half the price this would totally be worth it. For this price... ehhh.

    It allows to hear the notes you are playing, and to play along with songs without waking up your housemates. It sounds like a farting walrus. If you just want something to use to practice occasionally, this works.

    If you're picky about tone, plan to use this for recording, or are going to be using this on a regular basis I would definately suggest shelling out for something better.
    It has an 3.5mm input for playing along with your ipod/etc. The compression "efx" channel seems like a feature until you realize you have to have it on all the time if you want even close to enough volume. I have a HOT active preamp in my bass so I know the problem's not on my end. It may be an impedance issue (I use big studio headphones to practice), but I'm not exactly gonna play bass with little earbuds.
    I guess the tone is "acceptable" on the clean channel at low volumes, but then it's not really any louder than playing the bass unplugged. By the time it's turned up loud enough to hear yourself well it produces a moderately loud hiss at all times and notes exhibit strong square-wave clipping.
    I have a low priced amp with headphone out that I typically practice with at night. It sounds 20 times better than this. I'm willing to cut this amp a bit of slack though because, it's tiny, relatively cheap, and runs on two AAAs. There are going to be trade-offs.

          Great Idea and would be worth twice what it sells for if it worked well. Mine keeps cutting out whenever one of the wires to the headphone, bass, or MP3 player moves ever so slightly because the connections are not at all secure.
          Because of this problem mine is virtually unusable.

            It's easy to use and works as advertised. I can still put on some external music and then adjust the volume to the Vox and play along. It's totally portable - just take the bass to any room and play. 4 stars only because I haven't used anything else to compare to.

                  I love the sound and the portability of this product. I also love that I could hook it up to my IPhone and use my music app (Spotify)to learn music. The only problem is it's plastic and not that durable, I broke my mine while watching my 15 month old daughter, but I'm here about purchasing another one, that's how much i liked it. My only suggestion is be very careful handling it because it's very fragile.

                      I just got mine, and I love it... stayed up way too late, practicing. I like the fact that,by manipulating the gain and volume controls, you can create a clean or distorted sound. Some reviewers didn't like the sound - they probably didn't understand this. That being said, it is a PRACTICE amp. It will not produce the sound of an expensive system. It does a great job for its intended purpose. My only concern is that the case may not last if it is dropped. Only time will tell - so far, I give it a thumbs-up.
