    Refering to the title above, does this work? Can I connect tehm together?
     
  2. probably not...there isn't enough gain...
    but there are things like the pocket rocket, which is a small headphone amp

    Mr superbassman is right on, I think , although some efffects may have enough gain to do this, especially overdrives, compressors, preamps. I have an active bass that sends an audible signal through headphones.

    But your going to get a mono signal, and you'll only hear through one side of the headphones unless you adapt the TRS plug to a "regular" 1/4" TS plug like an instrumnet cable. And it still might not sound too good, a little headphone amp will probably work MUCH better for you.
