i tryed it out at sam ash. this thing even comes with a battery, earbuds not included. it works, i tryed it on a few basses. i managed to get two drum samples going without reading the manual, apparently theirs four available. i'm definitely buying this someday and when i do i'll update this review.
sound quality is good, and should work with any headphones or ear phones. i don't know how long is the battery life.
*i own one now, and i like it. not much to say. the low end could be better. maybe it's my earbuds, but i did connect the amplug to a phillips portable speaker and the low ends the same. i wish you could edit the eq, i havn't try playing the amplug through an eq pedal. i look forward to buying more vox accessories. fun to jam and practice.
Out of the box this headphone amp operated amazingly and makes for a great (And incredibly compact) practice/travel amp. The VOX Amplug series in general is great for any on-the-go musician.
I bought this little Vox gadget to be able to practice at night without waking up the whole block or bother with plugging my amp and sitting next to it.
First of all, it works for real. You can have different kinds of sounds out of it and the tone setting really makes a difference. I don't really see the point of the rhythm function, but it also works if you need it.
It's really cheap and it's a decent tool for the money but don't expect this to be more than a practicing gadget. The little Vox amPlug2 Bass has quite an annoying downside and it is the noise! God, there's an awful lot of noise. I can't play very long as it wears myself out after a while.
But for the price, it remains a nice gadget to have when you need it.
