Ebtech Hum X - Plug-Style AC Voltage Ground Loop Hum Eliminator

The Hum X from Ebtech is a safe and economical way to get rid of ground loop hum. It works by placing the unit on the end of the power cord of the equipment that has a ground loop and then plugging the Hum X into any standard 15 amp outlet.

The Hum X filters out unwanted voltage and current in the ground line that cause ground loop hum, while simultaneously maintaining a solid, safe ground. Audio signals no longer need be run through any type of filtering which can result in loss of volume, tone or both.

Some devices simply remove the ground, which is never safe. The Hum X is easy to use, easy to install, safe and completely effective.

    After replacing the internal amp on the sub-woofer with little success in eliminating the HUM I stumbled accross this device on the internet. I figured nothing to lose at this point and ordered it online. [...], plugged it in and NO HUM, its a miracle!!! I worked on this problem for over one year trying everthing I and others suggested with no luck. Thank You. This should be advertized or sold where subs are sold as this problem is common to this type of equipment.

    I plugged my multi-outlet box into it and it into the wall (so I could keep the hum out with a mixer and two timecode-slaved recording decks) and the hum was still there - not eliminated - not even reduced. Does it say that this will only work with a single device plugged into it and not an outlet box? If so I will remove this review and chalk it up to user error. At any rate I was severely disappointed by the lack of results, since I have several audio devices plugged in for recording video projects on location and have to switch to eating up a huge number of batteries to eliminate the hum.

      Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

      I bought this to reduce some buzz and noise I was experiencing with an amp. Didn't think it'd make that big of a difference but I thought it was worth a try. There's a huge reduction in the hum now. I absolutely love it. It was definitely worth the money!!

          I used three of these in a dedicated Theater. One for the Blue Ray, One for the Projector and One for the computer. I was going crazy trying to figure out how to solve it. These work and no HUM!! A Very Happy Person Today!!

          Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

          I had an awful hum coming from my dj system and could not figure out how to fix it. I tried everything, one by one, to no avail. Frustration was getting the best of me. I finally came across the "Hum X" by Ebtech here on B&H. You can imagine the huge sense of relief the first time I used the "Hum X", powered on my PA system and heard nothing but the sweet sound of silence! I highly recommend this product to every professional dj, musician and the like. I never do a gig without it!

            Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

            I have never heard of B&H until recently. I was shopping for an effective way to control grounding hum. I bought one and liked it so much, I bought another. I use these in live performance situations and recently played at a place that had a really bad 60 cycle hum. I am hoping that this will solve the problem there, but it has already proving effective in other venues. I like B&H too, fast shipping, lots of products, I might have to take a visit to the store the next time I am in the city. 2 thumbs up for Hum X and B&H.

                Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

                I think this puppy works. Not sure if you need to plug it directly to the power cable of the device in question, or if it can be used on the outlet directly and plugged into a power strip. I have it in the outlet with all my electronics plugged into the power strip. It works ok, it cuts some of the hum at certain volume levels just enough that it doesn't annoy me anymore. Better idea - use this in conjunction with a balanced outlet, get a nice solid desk or workspace to put your devices on so nothing vibrates and make sure everything is nice a grounded, speaker monitors are on pads, etc. A combination of these things will remove the hum from your monitoring setup.

                          HumX reduced the hum in our system. It did not entirely remove it, but reduced it to the tolerable range.
                          B & H was great! Shipped quickly at a more reasonable price than anyone else.

                              I am a dj and my laptop was producing a humming noise everytime I plugged it into power. With the Hum X, the hum is eliminated to an acceptable insignificant amount. Try it, you won`t regret it!

                                Needed to cancel the pesky hum out of H.S. Theatre PA System. Traced it to the rack housing the amps. Had balanced connections, figured it must be the ground in the stage outlets. None of the outlets has a dedicated breaker. Plugged in the Hum X and VOILA_NO MORE HUM. Perfect in every way. The perfect solution to a very common and very annoying situation.

                                You must start at the source ,first place the HUM X to the electrical outlet, then plug in to the HUM X ,your power strip , conditioner , ect ect ,. This is the correct way to use this product it must be your first ,in the line of chain to power source .

                                        I still have a slight occasional speaker hum which probably has nothing to do with the HUM X being able to fix it. So it is unfair for me to rate the HUM X at this is time.
