Question from a pretty green newb here. I need a way to amplify the audio that comes out of my Xbox 360 so I can listen to it with headphones. The signal is very weak when I plug the headphones in directly, I believe because it's an unamplified signal. Right now I have it going into a console amplifier, and from there to headphones. I'd like to get the big console amp out of the room completely. So I guess I need a headphone amp. But I've never bought one before so I could use some advice.
Here's what I think I need (let me know if you think I'm missing something):
- Inexpensive - I don't know what these things cost but I'd like to keep it basic
- Does not need to be extremely high-fidelity
- Easy to use
- Doesn't need to be portable but small and discreet would be good.
- I have electrical power in the place I want to use it
I can't think of any other requirements or circumstances to mention. If anyone knows something special about the audio output on an Xbox 360 I'd love to know if there are special things I should be considering.
Any advice on a unit I should buy?
Much appreciated! I'll be sure to come back and write a review after the purchase.
Thanks - and my wife thanks you too. Headphones make playing the old Xbox a lot less disruptive to others in the home!
