Many of the newer headphones like planar magnetics like more wattage than your headphone amp can deliver. Have you been wanting to find out what those headphones sound like with the extra juice from your speaker amp? Wonder no longer, the Zynsonix speaker amp to headphone converter box delivers the wattage to your ears in spades with top notch parts like Mills high-wattage resistors, Kimber wiring and Cardas silver content solder to ensure the best sound quality.
This unit includes protective resistors which are mandatory for tube amplifiers with output transformers to present a load and prevent shorting, and will assist in protecting headphones from excessive wattage from solid state and OTL amplifiers (within reason). Note that speaker amplifiers have some impedance differences from headphone amps, and headphones detect noisy power supplies better than speakers, but many of my clients have had successful implementations.
The deluxe version features switchable balanced and single-ended outputs. The negative of each channel is isolated when using the four pin XLR, and shared when using the 1/4". The engraved plates come standard.
Note: When using the 1/4" output, please ensure your amp has a common ground. Contact me if you aren't sure, it's pretty easy to test or you can just ask the amp manufacturer. Nearly all amps have a common left and right ground. Also note that excessive wattage (turning your amp all the way up) can damage your headphones and the device. If you are using a high wattage amplifier, please send a message and we can add some additional heat dissipation as necessary.
