If you need to practice guitar without making much noise, this is a great little tool. It requires a computer to plug into, and installation of the JamVox app that you can download for free. The device itself is just a DAC (digital / analog converter) that that plugs into your computer with a USB cable. Plugging in and setting up is a breeze. JamVox has a lot of cool features: different amps and pedals to get your tone, play along with MP3s - it can even take the guitars out of the song, so it's all on you, a tuner, metronome, and a drummer that will play grooves you can jam out to. I got this on SDOTD, but would easily be worth it at full price if you don't mind using you don't mind using your computer as the amp.

Purchased the device and downloaded software and read manual online. Product does not come with any documentation. In order to activate software, you need an activation code. After spending an hour online reading manual and trying to figure out how to get the code, tried Musician friend chat. After spending another 20 minutes on chat and registering the product, said I would need to contact VOX directly for the code. Did not want to spend any more time so asked for RMA number. Was told they would give me a RMA number but not pay return shipping unless I contact VOX directly. Did not confirm, but think this unit only comes with a 15 day trial for software and then you have to pay 99.00 for the licence. Mine is in the garbage. If you have 3 hours to get it working, may be worthwhile but think "software include" it is misrepresented by MF. At Minimum, it is a headache to get a software code. Have been purchasing from MF for many years and this was the 1st time I used chat. Disappointed with service.

      No standalone headphone amp functionality. A huge opportunity missed. Bargain bin time. VOX, you blew it on this one.

          This little VOX I/O plug is a nice piece of technology... it does everything it says it will do and more! You get the unit and USB cable to your computer, and you get a download code for a fully functioning VOX JamVOX III version 3.03

          Awesome AMP + Cabinet + Effects Models + Drum Tracks to choose from.

          You really can't go wrong with this!

          I run windows 7 64bit

            From MF's title I thought that this might doubles a headphone amp with a guitar. It does not do this at all. I will keep it an give it a try as a guitar interface for recording and see what it can do but I still need a icro amp

            Comments about amPlug I/O Guitar Headphone USB Audio Interface with JamVOX III Software:

            The USB driver for this product has not been updated since Windows 7. It crippled my wi-fi and caused system audio instability (the latter may have been the ASIO drivers provided with the product). It also appears that Korg/VOX no longer supports the product.

            It's cheap to experiment with, and yu might get lucky, but BE SURE TO SET A RESTORE POINT before you install.

            Comments about amPlug I/O Guitar Headphone USB Audio Interface with JamVOX III Software:

            First of all, I got this assuming it would work as a simple headphone amp. It doesn't​ function that way. IT'S NOT A HEADPHONE AMP. After I got it I tried the other features and nothing worked. Don't buy.

            Comments about amPlug I/O Guitar Headphone USB Audio Interface with JamVOX III Software:

            Put on a good pair of headphones, and the overdrive tone is warm and really growls. I was leary, since I've used Line 6 products about 12 years ago, and they always had that "emulated" sound, but this + the JamVox software sounds pretty good. One thing to be aware of is it is true to it's name: "I/O" - input/output. it outputs to the headphone jack of the Amplug only. So if you want to listen to it over your PC speakers instead of the headphone out on the plug you have to intercept the ASIO output with WDM. It takes a little hacking, but its possible.

                I should be able to plug in and rip , no .... This product needs more detailed written instructions . I get no guitar signal . Thought the unit was bad , returned it and have the same problem with the new one . I'm fairly good with this sort of thing but can't make it work . Wish I had a geek friend nearby ! Musicians Friend did a good job with their end .
