Best night practice tool so far
MadmaxL0L 06.01.2022
I had other brands before but after buying this, either with my electric guitar or bass, this is the tool I use at nights for silent practices and jamming. It has 4 setups for bass and for guitar. For guitar I am mainly using two of them. One for clean with reverb, one for with some gain and delay. Same for bass, I use one setup slot for clean with some reverb and one with the effects.
When I want to jam, I setup this as a bluetooth speaker to my phone. Find a jam track on youtube and just play. All the sound from phone and guitar comes from headphones. No lag issues.
The charge holds well, I never could be able to deplete it on one go.
The best part is; Now I can bring my guitar to downstairs and jam when I'm watching the puppy or watching some old Star Wars move in the background :)

The best headphone amp/effects unit that money can buy.
Robert Peterson 10.10.2020
I never purchased other headphone amps as they tended to have an extremely limited feature set and tonal range. That is not the case with the NUX Mighty Plug.
The default pre-sets of this four-channel headphone amp already sound great, but the ability to edit/adjust your tones through the smartphone app set this headphone amp far above all competitors. The app is intuitive and easy to use and finding "your tone" is painless and enjoyable. The amps, the cabinets, the effects and the acoustic simulator all provide a wide range of sounds and the ability to save your edits/adjustments from your phone to the Mighty Plug make "private practice" sessions an absolutely enjoyable experience.

I have several amps at my disposal but I don't use them too often due to me being in a small apartment with elderly neighbors. With the NUX Mighty Plug I play several times a day EVERY DAY and crank it as loud as I want with fantastic, inspirational sounds coming from my headphones.

I am so glad I bought this.

Great price, great USB interface, excellent portability...
fommof 01.04.2021
OK, so I was looking for a gismo, small enough to be able to carry it with me all the time (along with my 12" laptop and my guitar) for playing and recording my stuff.

It's small, that's for sure.

Soundwise, I prefer clean and semi-clean sounds. Was I impressed? Not really, but at least I was able to dial a satisfactory clean sound (with just a tad reverb, no other effects) and that did the trick. Not infinite options but I am sure a lot of people will like some of the available distorted sounds as well.

I was impressed with it's USB recording capabilities though, again that's a big thing to me so I am keeping the little bugger no matter what.

I downloaded both the Mighty Amp app (official Android app) and the Mightier Amp app (excellent 3rd party Android app) and it was easy to access all the available options to shape the sound, save presets etc.

Also, it was very straight forward to update it with the latest firmware.

I tested it with a pair of Sony mdr-zx110 headphones (24 Ohm), AKG K240 (55 ohm) and Sennheiser HD600 (300 ohm). I do NOT recommend using anything with more than 55 ohm with the Mighty Plug as the overal volume will be too low and there is no way to compensate it. There are a few tricks, like pumping the IR volume by a few dbs, maximise the amp volume etc. but be aware it will start clipping after a certain point. For my needs and for maximum portability the Sony mdr-zx110's will do the trick.

The included USB cable is too short so be aware if you want to use it for recording. Just buy a good quality 1.5-2m cable.

I can't comment on battery life, not yet anyway.

All in all, for my needs it's fine, especially for recordings while I am on the road and the portability is superb. Anyone is looking for more sounds, adjusting capabilities etc. should look away but it's worth for the price,

A bassist's perspective
Steve J. D. 10.01.2021
I bought this to practice and play around when my sloppy playing would be the most annoying.

This little fella feels surprisingly well made, although I would never unplug it by holding it from anything but the jack part.
It's very easy to use, and it works a bit like bluetooth headphones, since the audio signal from your phone or tablet is sent to the NUX. That means you can play over any song you want to practice without waking up your neighborhood.
The app is intuitive to use, and it offers some good modeling options, even for bass.
I've been using it to experiment with some effects, and they're pretty nice to use.
Saving settings from the app and swapping them on the fly when using the Mighty Plug by itself could not be easier.
It contains some backing tracks too, but I haven't used them much yet, considering I can access my Spotify library or other apps. I find the customizable drum tracks more useful and interesting.
You can even use it as an interface for recording, but I haven't tried that.

The main cons are the volume, a bit quiet for my taste, and the tendency to clip with some settings maxed out and/or plucking/slapping hard.
Finding your sound can also take some time, but you will eventually, if you dedicate some time to experimenting with the Mighty Plug app.

Tl;dr it's a nice piece of gear with lots of options. It's very easy to use, but finding good sounds takes some time. For the price, you can't ask more imo
