I practice with the VOX AmPhone AC30 on a daily basis.This headphone amplifier is a very versatile gadget. It brings out that excellent tonal quality one would expect from an American Standard Telecaster...didn't think I sounded that good! It has a very clean sound or dial in some crunch using the gain control. Also has separate tone & volume controls that allow a good range of adjustment. I also use it when recording through my Boss 8-track recorder & the quality sound really comes through. The input chord is small but seems very tough & quite durable. Another benefit is that it facilitates extending the tube life in my big amp by not having to use it as much. This headphone amp will probably pay for itself over a period of time. I wouldn't be without one &...the wife loves it!

It's a life saver...The AC30 serves a dual purpose! They are head phones made for musicians... Late at night I sometimes get the urge to play and I can connect and not bother anyone in the house... I just plug it in to my guitar or Bass and practice... That's awesome and nobody complains... :)

Perfect for online jamsOh Yeah, this is one nice set of headphones for your electric Guitar, but the really unique thing is that it has an aux input (stereo 1'8" jack) so you can not only hear your guitar in sweet VOX crunchiness, but ALSO the jamming coming in from the computer/on-line lessons/iPod, whatever you like!!! The sound is incredible, and if VOX Amps sound like what I'm hearing in the headphones, then I guess I need to add a Vox amp to my wishlist too ;-) A tremendous value for the money!

Huh? Did you say something?When I plug my guitar into these amphones I become completely oblivious to whats going on around me haha. These little guys have great tone and the effects can be fun to mess around with. They actually work great with pedals (when using an extension cable), are very loud, and since they are headphones you won't keep the family up all night. The auxiliary input is a great feature too. I have used it many times playing to my mp3 player, iphone, etc... I gave them a 4.5 rating because having the controls on the ear piece and not on the cable it self would probably annoy some people.

Didn't want to like itI have used Vox amps before and liked them.
I also like Audio-Technica, should be a slam dunk for this collaboration and it was!
The controls are a little hard to use probably so they don't accidentally get changed.
The effects are limited but usable, I plugged these to the out of my Zoom Multi stomp (another one Sweetwater got out first).
I love my tube amps and these will never replace them but for practicing or giving the neighbours a break they make it pretty easy!
Mp3 music sounds good through these even though they are designed for guitar sound (low-fi) great for jammin' with your music.
The only concern I have is that the cord is attached like headphones are and being so short they can easily get damaged.
I use a 1/4 male to 1/8 female extension cord to limit the stress risk.

OutstandingThese sound great!
I have to play through headphones more often than not at home. These sound nothing short of outstanding. And, they are so simple. No amp hanging from your waistband. Plug them in and roam around. I hook my iPhone to the aux-in jack to play backing tracks.
One minor thing keeps me from giving a perfect 5-star. The effects control is a little odd -maybe I'm just not used to it. There are 3 effects, and to control them, you must turn a dial, just like the volume, marked 0 to 10. The phones beep as you switch effect, e.g. chorus to reverb, but it's not clear if the intensity of the effect changes within the zone: reverb is on when the dial is between 6 and 10. The quality of the straight sound is so good, I don't need the effects much anyhow.
The gain is great, and the volume cranks. Love them!!
