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

B&H # EBHX Mfr # HUM X
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $51.41

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.

    Basically...this little thing is...ok...this will NOT balance your Audio Signal Path...(I kinda expected that) If you have a problem with the ground coming from the 'wall' outlet, it MIGHT help...a little...depending on all the electrical factors... however.. (this i didn't expect)....this thing is 'only good up to 6 amps'...which means if you have an amplifier that pulls more than that, (which 98% of all Power Amps do...) you might fry the Hum X, it won't work, or both....At $60+, a very overpriced adapter, that doesn't always do the job.

      Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

      I used this for quieting a guitar amp in a room with fluorescent lighting. My amp was picking up electrical frequency in the room and loudly broadcasting it. I installed the Hum X and 99% of the sound went away. I am getting better instrument cables to get the last 1%.

            Comments about Ebtech Hum X Ground Loop Hum Eliminator:

            We have been plagued by an intermittent hum in our sound system at church for the past year or more. Nothing we tried made the hum go away until someone suggested the Ebtech Hum X. Plugged it in to the first piece of suspected faulty equipment and the hum is gone! Amazingly simple to use!

              Use the hum-x with my vintage Marshall guitar rig and said goodbye to noisy ground loops from sub optimal wiring at local venues. Really works well.

                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 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!

                      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.

                          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.

                                  Did not work in my situation, I called ebtech and spoke with a representative and he said to try the line level shifter.

                                    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.
