Share your tunes with XtremeMac Audio Splitter

pic XtremeMac today announced the Audio Splitter for iPod. The $12.95 accessory allows you to share music from your iPod with another listener. It works with the 3G and 4G iPod, iPod photo and iPod mini. The splitter allows free access to the iPod hold switch and requires no batteries, and does not draw power or lessen the iPod’s battery life.

« Mix: UK iTMS, Snocap, Gruber, ASU, Pogue

iPod unit sales up 370 percent in 2004; 4.4 million sold »

access to the hold switch, no batteries?

i have never seen a splitter that didnt have any of those features. 

i never cease to be amazed at how much they can sell things like this for because they’re for the ipod.

also, battery life would be reduced, since you are driving 2 sets of headphones.

I bought the Monster headphone splitter so that my girlfriend and I could both listen to my iPod when we fly. But, I really can’t stand it, as it drops the headphone power to a level that I find unacceptable (it’s not only the volume that suffers, the sound dynamics are diminshed as well). I’d be happy with a splitter that draws a little extra battery power if it could drive two sets of headphones without a loss of sound quality. Something tells me that this isn’t going to give me that.

I agree with zip22.

The difference between this splitter and my 2£ version is the fact that this one can’t rotate (nice) .. but, jusing it with the remote will look strange ..
