Every cohost in your audio podcast needs their own headphones, but they may have completely different kinds with different amplifications. This 4-channel headphone amplifier will give each cohost their own volume control for their headphones. Watch this video to see why you and your cohosts will love the Behringer HA400.
Cheap headphone splitting
You can get a cheap adapter to split your audio output (under $3) so you can connect two headphones.
If you have several cohosts, you could consider the Belkin Rockstar Multi Headphone Splitter, which connects up to five headphones.
Both of these splitters give no control over the volume. In fact, the more headphones you plug in, the lower the volume gets.
Headphone splitting with volume control
The Behringer HA400 Headphone Amplifier is the perfect addition to any podcast studio with more than one person. It has separate volume controls for each 1/4-inch output. This gives each cohost the ability to control the volume of their own headphones.
Connect the HA400 to your mixer with a high-quality 1/4″ male stereo (TRS) to 1/4″ male stereo (TRS) cable from Monoprice.
The HA400 is a powered amplifier, so make sure you have an extra AC outlet nearby.
Please the HA400 headphone amplifier somewhere within reach of everyone, or at least one person who can adjust for others.
Don’t forget these important adapters
Get four 3.5mm to 1/4-inch adapters so your guests and cohosts can plugin in any pair of headphones.
I also recommend a couple 3.5mm headphone extension cables for headphones with short cables.
