Does this connector exist?

I want to carry 2 ipod and Y-connect both of them into my headphones.

This way I can change playlists simply by turning one off and the other on.

When I looked into connectors, I was about to buy this one but realized one is for a mic.

it should not matter whether its for a mic or ear phones as long as the female end is wired the same as the male ends ( TRS- tip ring sleeve)

the only possible caveat is if both players are ON at the same time, it might damage one or the other, since each would be potentially being seeing not only the load of the ear phones, but the other amplifiers output as well.

that last one Maggot posted has another conductor for something, (push to talk maybe) I would not use that one.

The two devices pictures are for connecting two sets of earbuds/headphones to one device. The OP wants to go the other way, so he needs two males and one female. The cord he linked should work, as long as there's nothing funky going on in the female end. I'd test the connections with a multimeter before trying to use it.

The linked cable probably has a dual ring on the female side to accommodate a headset with a mic. So it probably won't work properly.

But you could make this pretty easily with parts from an electronics store.

The real question is:

Why would you want to do that?

You need one with an A/B input switch....one amp or the other...amps don't like to play together well

You could make many play lists on one IPOD.

Or when you stop for gas change IPODS.

Laugh

It may burn it up... driving an output to another device output. Also You may not even be able to here the output of one with the output of other connected parallel.
3 question you may want to ask yourself...
Am I attached to these ipods?
Am I willing to take a chance?
How has my luck been running in the last 6 months?

Lots of excellent info. Thanks guys. When I'm riding I have music for the good roads and the boring ones. When I hit a good road or unexpectedly find myself on one, I'd like to have my best music cued up. That way I don't have to stop and also keep my mind on the road.

As for burning up, I am very curious about this and no, I'm not willing to take a chance. Never would both of them be on at the same time.

And what do you think playlists are made for?


Never heard of someone who wants to carry and hook 2 different iPods to the same set of earbuds because he likes 2 different kind of music for different type of rides.

What a weird idea, pretty weird answer to a sample question.


You can make 50 different playlists on the same iPod if you want and jump from one to another if it's what you need/want. Learn to use the tools you carry and use for god's sake.
