Here's what Vox say about Vox amPhones
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 from four different versions
amPhones come in four models: the "AC30" faithfully reproduces the sound of the classic VOX AC30 amplifier, the "Twin" simulates the sound of a famous US-made clean combo amp, the "Lead" covers lead guitar sounds ranging from UK-made amps to US-made high-gain boutique amps, 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.
