Can i use stereo splitters?

Or is there a better way to connect 2 headphones?

Thank you

I use a splitter. No problems. On occassion I have used a splitter on the splitter to get 3 pairs of cans going. You may (will) have volume differences if the sets you use have vastly different impedance specs. It is always the talent that should get to decide on volume levels and other mix features for "foldback" during tracking and overdubbing, so the engineer puts up with what the talent wants.

there are of course more elaborated solutions. I have a Mackie headphone mixer. On the 2400 I can send that mixer 4 mono signals from the AUX outs (these are busses so one mono signal could be all the drums for e.g.) and it also has a couple of stereo inputs. All these can be mixed by up to 6 players (on the floor), to individual preference. This gear gathers dust, most of the time, as splitters are simple to quickly utilize. On occasion the headphone mixer has been very useful. In this wireless age though, this technology is quite cumbersome and crude. Modern mixers use wireless to allow individuals to create their own mixes to which to track.

Thank you Byron :!:

Witch splitter do you can recommend?
I heard that some splitters are splitting the stereo signal to 2 mono signals
But I need a splitter for 2 stereo outputs

Thanks

Just check the specs for the one you buy. Stereo >> stereo.

hello there,

i use a SINGLE RACK SPACE behringer powerplay pro-xl that allows me to provide 4 separate mixes for 4 separate headphones ... they are affordable and the sound quality is very good ... there are 2 units in my rack which (in theory) will provide enough separate monitor mixes for 8 players ... there are 6 auxes availiable on my aw4416 which i patch into the appropriate (1-4) omni outs and i use other outs for the other (5-6) mixes ...

behringer also offers a single rack unit that provides 8 channels of headphone signals BUT NOT 8 CHANNELS OF SEPARATE INPUTS ...

i hope this helps

mark
