The Sescom iPod Stereo Audio MP3 FLAC WMA Player A/B Switch 3.5mm (1/8) is a bi-directional switch that lets you choose between two 3.5 mm inputs or outputs. If you plug your iPod into the SES-IPOD-AB you can switch between two different outputs, like headphones and stereo, without unplugging anything. Conversely, you can plug two iPods into the SES-IPOD-AB and they'll both run out to the same output, say a stereo. You can then switch between which iPod is being played on the stereo.

The SES-IPOD-AB has several other uses as well. It can switch line level inputs to amps, mixers or PCs or switch line level outputs between amps, mixers or PCs. You can switch your PC sound card output between headphones and speakers, choosing to listen publicly or privately without unplugging anything. It's possible to switch your computer output between two sets of reference monitors or simply to bring rear mounted computer mini jacks to the front of a desktop PC. It's also great for recording multiple sources with digital recording software. The SES-IPOD-AB is a convenient tool to have in your studio or home and it also prevents wear and tear on your equipment.

      This unit is very versatile for switching from 2 sources to one set of headphones, or from one source to a set of headphones or earphones or switching between computer headphones and speakers. It's small, compact and very portable so doesn't take up much space on the desk and is easy to transport. I use it to switch between a headphone amp/headphones combo and an amplifier and speakers using one source. there are no negatives about this handy device! It has so many applications it is indispensible!

      Since there isn't a return monitor jack on the 788, I picked this guy up. Ergonomics are a little strange, with a plug on each side instead of next to each other. At least it's small and light (for velcro).

            Does what it says and exceeds all expectations, the organist needed a product that can playback his IPHONE with music while he was still connected to his personal mixer without changing his headphones or unplugging his headphones. Thanks B&H Photo, you always deliver.

              Comments about Sescom iPod Stereo Audio MP3 FLAC WMA Player A/B Switch 3.5mm (1/8):

              This is a good product for use when a "quick fix" is required to provide an additional audio source using 3.5mm TRS connections. I have found that the switch is free from noise unlike other devices that I have used in the past with rotary selector knobs. This product is a good value for the dollar.

                  Nice little unit that does exactly what it's supposed to do, and nothing more. The fact that it can be used to toggle between either two inputs to a single output or two outputs to one input is nice, though I mainly use it to change from my headphones to my Behringer monitors. Feels pretty solid for its lightweight and small size, which is always a plus.

                    I have a small home studio for syndicated radio broadcasting. I needed a quality an inexpensive A/B switch for my audio output. It works great. Good price and quality.

                          I have my Xbox 360 and my PC connected to one monitor and one set of speakers. It got really annoying having to swap my speaker connection from my Xbox 360 to my PC and vice versa. So I found this little jewel and now all I have to do is flip a switch to change sources!!!! This device is awesome and it's solid-state. I highly recommend this product.

                                I work in TV production. Many times I need to monitor 2 different sources of audio. One being live and the other delay. Now I can use just one set of headphones and switch back and forward. It even comes with easy mounting strips. Perfect for the job.

                                  We use these on carts with computers and DVD players to switch which device goes to the speakers mounted on the cart. It does that job very well.

                                  It also came with a strip of 3M Dual-Lock (basically plastic velcro) to attach it to a surface, which was very useful for us to attach it to the cart.

                                  I just wish it was cheaper. It costs around 6x what the parts it is made of cost.

                                  I would be happier if all three plugs were on the back instead of on three separate sides. It looks very messy the way it is.

                                          Needed so switch between my XMRadio and Samsung Note mobile phone. Works perfect allowing me to listen to my music or switch to mobile phone for navigation commands or watch Netflix (Not while driving)

                                            Made in America. I bought this for use on my classic car audio system. Being able to switch from an iPod device to my Sirius receiver, without having to fumble with plugging & unplugging cords. The unit comes with 2 strips of 3M dual lock tape for a quick, clean, easy to hide and access, installation. Well worth the price charged.

                                              I use this 3.5mm A/B switch to switch between two line level audio inputs on one set of 2.1 speakers. There is no noticeable degradation in sound quality and the build quality of the product is excellent. It even comes with a velcro strip mount so you can stick it on a padded studio wall or in your car.

                                              I wanted to use this between two computer headphone outputs. Unfortunately, there is noise passed from the unswitched devise, and it doesn't matter which input device is switched off. Noise flows from A or B input. apparently no filtering in this device at all. Would have been nice to see a schematic upfront to have understood this.

                                                    This switch takes two input 3.5mm (1/8") stereo jacks and converts them to one output.

                                                    One of my inputs (A) is from the soundcard in my PC; the other input (B) is from the headphones port on my combination HDTV/Monitor. I could connect my headphones to this A/B switch's output, but I connect a headphones amplifier to it (saves strain on my PC's power supply unit). When I want to use my headphones for miscellaneous purposes with my PC, I have the A/B switch set to A. When I want to use my headphones to watch movies with my Blu-ray player and my HDTV/Monitor, I have the A/B switch set to B.

                                                    All three cables, two inputs and one output, are male-to-male stereo cables which are easy to find at a number of stores. Converting the two inputs to one output, however, was not easy. Many places have Y-splitters, but they don't work for this purpose. All they do is allow you to use sets two headphones from the same source. I could use my receiver instead of the switch, but that's much too bulky for my desktop. This A/B switch from B&H is very small--about 2" x 2" x 1/2"--and takes up almost no space. And its a no-brainer to connect and use.

                                                    Of course I could simply disconnect and connect my headphones back and forth between my PC and my HDTV/Monitor, but that wears down connectors and connections. Also it is much more convenient to just flip the toggle on the switch.

                                                        I currently use this to switch the stereo output on my laptop's Echo IOx soundcard between headphones and a speaker amp.

                                                        Makes it easier to keep working on beats when people around are sleeping or become understandably irritated by hearing the same 4 to 8 bars of music over-and-over for half an hour.

                                                          I use this to switch between to different headphone outputs (one from a computer and another from an old sound module)

                                                          This device works exactly as stated and feels very high quality.

                                                          It's very light so it has a tendency to start sliding around. (although it does come with some velcro, so you can velcro it to your desk or whatever) Not a huge problem at all.

                                                          I loved this product. Recently I got a pair of wireless headphones and I wanted to connect them along with my other speakers. I tried using a 3.5mm splitter, but I made sound come out of my speakers and headphones. I kept looking online for switchers, but then I found this. I thought this was too expensive ( [$] for a splitter!!! ) I then ordered it and loved it.
