How do I get sound both sides of my headphones when I come out of the aux outs. I am only getting one side. I know that to get stereo you pair 2 of the channels together. But for a mono mix how do you get both sides.. I am using an xlr to 1/4 trs and am only getting one side
@KellyPeterson Glad it worked, however I do agree with Rex and also own several P2's. These are great units. Can't beat the price and ease of use as well as the great sound with plenty of power. I also have several dual female to single male XLR cables (specific wiring required) so they can be used on the stereo switch side of the P2 with linked buses if wanted. A plain xlr ihowever is all you need for simple full mono headphone operation. $32 at Sweetwater.
Yes. I am going to definitely pickup some. the dual female to single female as well thanks !
I think your issue is the trs part, that's wired for stereo but being supplied with only half the signal, the output of the aux is mono. To get mono you will likely need to short the left and right sides of the trs end together, tip to ring or pin 2 to 3
Such a hack to drive headphones directly from an AUX-out is not recommended. The line-output-circuits are not designed for that kind of load, but meant to feed into a higher-impedance line input. A single or multi-channel headphone-amp (or amp for wired in-ears) with L/R/mono inputs is what you need. It will provide audio to both ears even when fed a mono signal.
Just to be clear I was not 'recommending' it just suggesting the reason the OP was only hearing from one side of the headphones as wired in the situation described. I am a big fan of the P2 and similar devices and DID recommend those in the thread.
