The Music Branches Headphone Splitter is an absolute must for groups of people who want to enjoy their music or movies in a quiet setting. While it may sound like an unlikely scenario, imagine this scene for a moment. You are on a flight from one end of the country to the other, the in-flight movie is terrible and you and your children are bored. With the Music Branches Headphone Splitter, you could just take out your DVD player, laptop, or iPod, start up your family’s favorite movie and listen to it together without disturbing the other passengers. This is especially helpful if you happen to be on an international flight with a plane full of sleeping passengers.
The Music Branches Headphone Splitter is also useful in this way on long car rides. The splitter also works well with most gaming systems and televisions, giving you endless possibilities. Don’t want to listen to your children play a noisy video game together? Give them the headphone splitter and some headphones and let them go to town. For some games, headphones are actually better as they make you more aware of your surroundings. Give the Music Branches Headphone Splitter to the college students in your life, too. It is perfect for everything from listening to music with friends in the dorm to group study sessions in the library around midterms and finals.
The only caveats of note are volume equalization, which can lead to some initial confusion. When one person turns up their headphones, the splitter will turn down the volume on everyone else’s headphones and vice versa. This can make headphones with their own built-in volume controls a little disorienting to the other users sharing the splitter. Other than that, this splitter has many unique applications unavailable with any other device.
