Gearank Recommendation

The Vox amPlug 2 AC30 G2 appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Headphone Amps from February 2020 until June 2022.


The AC30 Top Boost tone is among the most copied amp tones, and who better to make a more compact version of it than Vox themselves.

The Vox AC30 G2 is a headphone guitar amp that reproduces the iconic jangly AC30 Top Boost Tone, all within a compact bug-type profile that conveniently plugs into your guitar.

In addition, it features 3 amp modes, built-in effects (tremolo, chorus, delay reverb) and it runs on 2 AAA batteries.

Other features include folding plug, Aux input, auto power off and more.

With the Vox amPlug 2 AC30 G2, you can enjoy genuine AC30 tones through your headphones.
