Help. Want to listen to board thru headphones...

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Rickenmonster, Jun 21, 2014.


  1. ...what do I need? Will a little headphone amp do it? If so, my board is just 1ch so will I just get it thru one ear?
     
  2. Some boards have a headphone jack, if it does no need for an amp. If it doesn't, generally you'll need one or the sound will be too quiet, as was the case when I was using a Presonus interface board.
    1 channel or not, you get sound to both ears. If you have a Pan knob for your inputs then you can have sound more towards either side for each, of course.
     
  3. Thanks for the input BioWeapon; I'm sorry I should have stated that I'm trying to grab the output from my FX pedal board before it goes to my amp. I want to listen to my pedalboard thru headphones but I need something at the end of my chain to plug the phones into (3LeafEnabler has a jack but I don't own one). I'm looking for an economical device to plug my phones into.

    Same here. Nice board, have had it for ages and use it for headphone practice all the time (along with recording).

    Recently I've been using a Zoom B1on. About the same price point for the OP and has different advantages.

    Never heard of the EHX headphone amp, looks like a great no-frills option if it sounds good.
