    I know it is more money - but thinking POD Express. Kind of marginal as a stomp box - but works really well as a headphone amp.

        I'm wondering if the Monoprice version is made in the same plant as the Vox for half the cost.




        The battery life on the Amplug is quite good. I can't give you an hour number, but the battery lasts a good long time. I don't know anything about the Monoprice ones.

            I like the Vox Amplug also, and battery life is long...and I can't give you the number of hours either. I can get a lot of sounds out of my Pocket-Pod, but I can out of my Fender Mustang-Mini too, which I think is a helluva little amp for the money...and it has optional battery power too. Unplug the headphones, dial in some bass, and it will get way louder than you'd think ii would too!

                The only other comment i would make having owned a number of small headphone type amps, is that a 100% dry sound (no reverb/chorus etc) makes for a super bland uninspiring practice with headphones (as are the amplugs).



                I think you will get a lot more enjoyment using something that at least has some basic ambient effects and a little stereo chorus for a headphone setup.

                    You can get the Fender Hello Kitty headphone amp for 6.99 shipped.



                    The best one I ever had was called the Arion Hot Watt.

                        I can see your point. Interesting that the Vox Amplug Twin model has chorus.

                            Might be too expensive for what you want, but these are small and light and FULL of features. Metronome, beats, tuner, plus all kinds of effects. Need a small patch cable or adapter to plug into the guitar then you're set. I don't use mine much, but mostly cause I hate headphones.

                                I have no idea how it sounds, but for $26 it's something.
