Improved sound and convenience! ...amPlug, the number one choice for headphone guitar amplification, is now even better!

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.

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.
  • "Classic Rock" delivers the classic crunch of a UK-made 100W amp.
  • "Metal" gives you the extreme high-gain sound of a US-made amp.
  • "Bass" is designed specifically for low frequencies, offering a wide-range response.
  • 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.
  • 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

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.

Plug the amPlug into your guitar and enjoy serious sound. Its 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.

In addition to its wide-range design, "Bass" now features VOX's new and original Bassilator circuit, reproducing the powerful ultra-low punch that is distinctive of a bass amp.

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 three 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 9 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 guitars 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 theres 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.

My wife was concerned that even with a small amp I'd be disturbing our neighbours. She was also concerned about how much space an amp would take up. This device solved both problems. It fits neatly into my gig bag with my guitar and takes up zero space. It sounds great through the $99 Sennheiser headphones I bought for it. One issue I encountered was that higher priced headphones have a higher impedance so the signal wouldn't get through but with the "cheaper" head phones it works like a charm. (Thanks to the guys at LM for helping me with that!). If you can, try out your headphones with it to make sure it works. For such a small simple unit it has a lot of different sounds. I wish that it was rechargeable but I picked up a pair of rechargeable AAA batteries for it so that end is covered. Overall I would recommend this.

Great little device, now I can easily practice scales etc. with backing tracks. Such a great piece for a great price. The audio input provides all sorts of options and allows you full mobility. Great idea, looking forward to new models with features such as Bluetooth, WIFI, metronome, etc.

Perfect solution for practicing around the house without bothering anyone. I'm using it with a Mexican strat and a pair of lightweight inexpensive (like $13 ) on ear headphones and it sounds great.
