After my recent purchase, I decided I also want a new amp as my old Peavey Vypyr just isn't cutting it. Need some help and/or some suggestions.

I want:

-Headphone compatible (playing loud freaks the dog out unfortunately, probably just my shitty playing TBH lol)
-Connects to iPhone/Macbook Pro for Garageband
-Has amps/pedals built-in or via an app
-Under $500


What I've been looking at:

-Positive Grid Spark, seems perfect but some people complain about the actual speaker output. App has an assload of tones. $318 for the amp, bag, and Sennheiser HD 200 Pro headphones.
-Fender Mustang GTX100. Has a decent app and tones built-in to the amp. Comes with footswitch. Most expensive at $500.
-iRig 2/ HD2. Seems like the most cost effective of the bunch at under $100 depending on which device you buy. Uses an app called Amplitube but you have to pay to unlock all the full library and it's $299 and up, depending on the version you want.

Anybody have experience with any of the above? Any other suggestions?
