Summary: Went a little crazy when I got my first electric guitar and had to have all the gizmos. Got a little amp with all sorts of effects and features. Got a Griffin cable and am running all sorts of effects from my iphone/ipad. Got this and got that and then there's the Vox headphone amp. Clearly, it is the device I use the most. Sound quality is great. It even has a few built in effects. I can practice in private, but can hear all the nuances of what I am playing.
Summary: I was a little hesitant to buy this item because I grew up playing my les Paul through a Marshall amp that strait up slayed it and doubted this little dinky piece of plastic could measure up. Living in a small apartment I don't have enough space to store all my equipment but I didn't want that to hold me back from playing my electric with some serious gain. I have to say I was extremely impressed with the tone that came out of this thing.
Summary: This is a superb instrument that will give make your guitar sound pretty much like it is indeed coming through a VOX valve amp. It is more hassle-free than carrying your amp around and using its earphone jack: all you need is a guitar + cable + AC30 + MP3 player + sofa. Sounds best with humbuckers / tends to be a bit hissy at max treble but this is not too much of a problem when the music starts.
Summary: I love this product. I use it everyday and it sounds awesome. I can rock out in my apartment and the neighbors have no idea I'm playing guitar. One small thing to note. I have a few guitars and it fits into the jack fine. However, it doesn't fit into my Ibanez S-series [...]. Because the jack goes in at a slant, the body of the guitar stops the amp from going in. I was however able to remedy this with a bit of sand paper.
Summary: So, I read all of the positive reviews (and the bad ones) and figured well, if it works great - if not, a little christmas money wasted (the main thing being, not my own money..) The amp came with batteries, which I wasn't expecting (my expectations has lowered significantly since the start of this recession) and... they worked! After adjusting the knobs a bit, the sound turned out to be quiet clear and truly does provide the perfect solution to practicing guitar..
Summary: I got this as a gift for my dad and he loves it. Haven't had any issues with it just yet. As others have noted it seems awfully light, bit it works as described and you can't really argue with that. I'm not too familiar with guitar equipment, but based off of my dads analysis of it, it's good and it works and he's happy with it.
Summary: I bought this with few expectations, but was pleased that it works just great! Plenty loud enough, maybe not the best gain for distortion, but for the money, it's a great deal. Easy to connect to the stereo reciever, works just as advertised. Only problem was the stereo input didn't work properly with a patch cable unless the cable was inserted halfway... which makes it difficult (if not impossible) to play and move around at the same time. Maybe I just bought a dud.
Summary: The Vox amPlug AC30 simulates very well an amplifier. I'm using it with Senheiser phones and it sounds amazing. Very practical for studying guitar without bothering the neighbors or on the go. Only problem that I see is that the controls seem to of poor quality and maybe will not last as long as they could.
A great choice for anyone getting into guitar playing

Summary: The Vox Ac30 headphone amplifier is a compact little unit that packs a big punch. This unit has a volume, tone, and gain knob that allows the user to adjust the sound. This may not seem like much, but it has a wide range. I myself am a beginner at best. I bought this amplifier, due to the fact that I have two children, and the best time for me to practice is when they go to sleep at night.
Summary: This little box is great if you like the real VOX AC30 tone because it can really sound almost like it! There's only 3 adjustments but it can still take a while to get what you want out of it. Turn up the gain to get some overdrive, down for a cleaner sound. And the tone control can make it nice and chimey. A little reverb and it'd be perfect. Sadly, it's too noisy to amp up very much but for a practice amp or headphones it's totally fun.
