Vox amPlug2 Headphone Amplifiers - 2014 - 2023

Introduced in September 2014, the Vox amPlug2 series was the second generation of the original Vox amPlug head phone amplifier product line. It included eight models, seven with built-in analog amp modeling and another that was a midi interface for direct recording into a computer. Each came equipped with a swiveling ¼" plug that inserted directly into the input jack of the instrument. The six amPlug2 models designed for guitar included three amp modes, three types of chorus, three delays and three reverbs. The amPlug2 Bass included three amp modes and nine percussion rhythm patterns.

Each amPlug2 offered up to 17 hours of battery life from two AAA alkaline batteries. All models except the amPlug I/O included Gain, Volume and Tone controls, a 3.5mm head phone jack and a 3.5mm input jack for mp3 playback. An "auto off" function powered down an amPlug2 if inactive for more than thirty minutes. Head phones were not included.
