Boost Your Practice Sesh with Vox Amp-Modeling Headphones!

Forget the headphone amp and go straight to the music! Vox amPhones active amplifier headphones plug in to any electric bass or guitar, offering onboard amplification and built-in guitar and bass amp sounds, for instant jamming without all the gear. Vox took a closed-back dynamic pair of Audio-Technica headphones and added amPlug technology along with a reactor circuit based on Valve Reactor technology. Together, these features reproduce the dynamic sounds of classic Vox amps.

Headphones with Built-in Amp Modeling

Vox amPhones use an analog design that models the circuit responses of Vox's original amps. Choose the AC30, which reproduces the sound of the classic VOX AC30 amplifier; or the Bass, which models the Vox AC100 bass amp for modern electric bass players.

Let Built-in Effects Take the Lead

If you go for the headphones of the AC30, you're in for a selection of onboard effects, including reverb, chorus, and delay. The Bass version of amPhones provides a standout sub for those effects, offering a classic built-in compressor. Tailor each effect to your own personal tune.

Turn Off the Amp Modeling and Wear These as Standalone Headphones

Not only are amPhones awesome active amp headphones, they serve double duty as conventional headphones, too. Switch back and forth between the two types by disconnecting your guitar or bass and powering off your amPhones. You can rock out on your instrument of choice with modeled amps of your choice, or ear jam with your top playlist. Made by Audio-Technica, amPhones offer superb sound in any situation.

Vox amPhones Active Amplifier Headphones

The VOX amPlug series of palm-sized headphone guitar amplifiers enables musicians to easily plug their amPlug into any guitar, and attach a pair of headphones to achieve high quality guitar sounds anywhere. Now, amPhones make it even easier for you. While the amPlug required the user to provide the headphones, the amPhones are headphones that have the amPlug technology already built in. Just plug in your instrument, and enjoy serious guitar/bass sound and superb comfort. amPhones are created using headphone technology from Audio-Technica, the name you trust for headphones. amPhones can also be used as conventional headphones when the amplifier simulator is switched off. You can connect your guitar/bass to these headphones, or use them for listening to music. amPhones are what you need, whether you're practicing by yourself in your room, or listening to your portable audio player on the way to the studio. amPhones are a must-have item for any VOX enthusiast.

Choose AC30 or Bass Model

amPhones come with built-in amp modeling! The "AC30" faithfully reproduces the sound of the classic VOX AC30 amplifier, and the "Bass" models VOX's classic AC100 bass amp with a wide-range design to meet the needs of today's modern electric bass players. Each uses a completely analog design in order to faithfully model the circuit response of the original amp, and will satisfy even the most critical listener.

Numerous high-quality effects are built-in

The amPhones series contains numerous effects that add variety to the sound. The "AC30," "Twin," and "Lead" provide reverb/chorus/delay, and "Bass" provides a compressor. Each effect is adjustable, giving you sound with superb presence that will bring out your best performances.

Also usable as headphones

When you disconnect your guitar/bass and power-off your amPhones, they will function as a conventional set of headphones that offer the superb sound quality that you would expect from VOX. The headphones themselves are made by Audio-Technica, the name you trust in headphones. You'll enjoy optimum sound quality and a comfortable fit that will not produce listener fatigue, even during extended listening sessions. Their folding design allows easy portability, and the extension cable and adaptor plug are also included, making these units an excellent choice for their stand-alone headphone functionality.

"Thin cord fails"
Sound: Great while it lasted. Feature: These would let you practice quitly anywhere and still have a good idea what it would sound like out of an amp. Ease of Use: Couldn't be much easier to use. Quality: Everthing but the skinny cord. Value: Good while it lasted, but I'm not willing to buy a second pair and have them fail in a year. Manufacturer Support: I'll contact them, haven't heard back yet. The Wow Factor: This could be a great product, if it just held up to normal use. Overall: After about 11 months of gentle use, I how now have a short in the cord right at the base of the headphones that makes these useless.I guess I'll try my hand at soldering on a new cord.
Style of Music: Rock, surf, blues, classical, ...

"Best way to play on the go."
Overall: I move from a Vox amPlug to a set of these (Twin). The sound is much better and you don't have to deal with the amPlug sticking out. I plan to get the Bass model soon.The headphone a good quality (if you compare them to a $200 set of headphones they will loose, but would hold their own with $100 headphones)My only complaint is the could have put a better quality cord on these, it's a little thin and for me at least, the cord is always the thing that wears out first on a set of headphones. Even better if they would have a 1/4 inch jack on the head phones and you could use your own cord.
