Sounds like you bought a HEADPHONE splitter and not a HEADSET splitter. A headphone splitter splits the audio so 2 sets of headphones can be used to listen to the same source. A headset splitter splits a headset jack (i.e. iphone headset jack) into a headphone jack and a microphone jack so you can use a headset that uses a headphone plug and microphone plug.

This is the correct Y-Splitter that you should be using: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-MUYHSMFF-Headset-Splitter-Adapter/dp/B004SP0WAQ/

Guess you are right. Didn't think of that. The mixamp I purchased did not bring a female to male adapter.

Thanks.

Hmmm, it is poorly worded but I would read that more as the output it can provide when used with headphones of a given impedance - i.e. with 8ohm headphones and a signal at 1kHz, the reciever can provide a 50mV output. The ellipsis represents the range of headphone impedances the reciever can drive (so from 8ohm headphones up to 560ohm). What this means for the impedance of the headphone jack I'm not entirely sure but if they are listing an output level for headphones as low as 8ohms then I would assume the impedance on the jack is nominal.

 

Again, I'm not entirely sure as I'm no expert but that's my interpretation. I believe Schiit used to provide info on the jack impedance of their amps in a similar manner until enough people complained about it.

 

On an entirely different note: My X1's are due to arrive tomorrow! Will put a post up sometime after I get them with my impressions though I'll only have my memory of the HD650 and my current set of PC360's for comparison (might be able to grab a friend's Q701s but that's not guranteed).

Johnson! I've been fooling around on Xbox all afternoon! Why didn't you inv me to party or something? I think I even sent you an invite while you were on the dashboard. I could've told you about the optical cable too!

The optical cable has enough bandith for the DD 5.1 surround, you have been feeding it only 2 channels of audio.

Do you have a multimeter? It should be pretty easy (I would think?- I haven't actually done this myself) to measure the output impedance if you have one. Just use a male to male headphone cable and measure from the exposed side?

I have a. Multimeter... But I don't know how to really set that up.

Oh my...

BTW, if you game on a HDTV, you shouldn't use composite cables either.  I recommend HDMI wink.gif

I tried joining you actually. I have a connection problem with my modem and some people. It happens every once in a while. I have the next 2 days off so ill try to fix it.

No longer have an Xbox, sadly. I only play CoD and Castlevania Harmony of Despair online (both Xbox and PS3). Otherwise, I'm a single player kind of guy.

What meter is it? It's not very hard, should have two leads and a dial that selects what you measure (unless it's a fancier unit). It's not as simple as just hooking it up to a male-to-male cable tho, you need a resistor to compare with/without and an appropriate sample audio file (and then do some basic math).

I'd post a link but the place where I've seen it explained best is at he-who-shall-not-be-named's blog, and I already got one warning from a mod for linking to that. Tyll has a nice article about it at Innerfidelity too bit it's ironically penned by the same person so I dunno if that's fair game or not.

This whole censorship issue is kinda ridiculous but whatever, I can PM some links if ya want.

Nearly done with the Annie review.
post #11383 of 24863

So I received my cable the other day, now all I have to do is mount it to the wall. Impulse, how did you mount yours again?

post #11384 of 24863
What cable? Ethernet? I used those removable slot hooks they sell at Home Depot, one every three feet or so, so it holds the cable steady with minimum droop. Ran it along the wall near the roof. Lemme take a pic of one...

Edit: They sell all sorts of different ones for different purposes, I'm using the most discrete (middle one) for an ethernet cable + phone extension.

Cool, I'm going to look into them. Thanks.
