Introduction about HS2 headphone signal switcher. - Page 9

That looks reasonable - for those who missed out on the HS2.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the find! Just bought one. Looks like the free shipping can take a while...

Someone I know has these and he says the quality is inferior to the HS2 devices

Perhaps another possible option here: http://mfspdesigns.wordpress.com/a-b-switch-box-psb2-1/

but it's very basic with 2 inputs only

Did your friend say how they are inferior? 

 

When I receive mine, I will post my opinion compared to my HS2. May be a while, though, because the shipping time may be 2 or 3 weeks.

Technically less well built than the Fiio

Hi,

I would be very interested in your opinion about this device...

I would like to have something reliable to make my own a/b comparison tests, and because the fiio is not easily available, it seems this device is the way to go (providing it's of good build quality)

thanks

Another possibility is the SESCOM iPod Switch, http://www.sescom.com/product.asp?item=SES-IPOD-AB.

That looks really nice!

Three Amazon reviews of the SESCOM mention buzzing or humming, sadly.

post #131 of 156
How is humming a problem for something like this?

Isn't this literally 4 headphone jacks, 12 short wires, a dial, and 2 output jacks, 6 short wires? 3 wires per jack (left/right/ground)

It would seem that it's impossible for such a passive device to introduce any "humming," but perhaps it acts as an antenna, picking up WiFi or Bluetooth or ...

I know nothing about electronics or this device, but here's one possible explanation: http://www.head-fi.org/t/705169/how-do-you-compare-2-headphone-amps/15#post_10277218

I've just bought one with the 2 cables that have 1/4" jacks and it shall arrive within a few days. :)

Once I receive it, I'll make a small review on the other thread here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/705169/how-do-you-compare-2-headphone-amps/30 .

I'm curious to read a review about this switch box...
