The Bidirectional Stereo Audio Switcher from Sescom is a versatile audio device that lets you switch between two inputs or two outputs via three 3.5mm jacks. If you plug your iPod into the switcher, you can switch between two different outputs, like headphones and a stereo system, without unplugging anything.

The Bidirectional Audio Switcher has 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. This switcher is a convenient tool to have in your studio or home and it also prevents wear and tear on your equipment.

i use this for duplicate the output sub on my zoom F8n, it's for create two return, one for my boom op and the second one for the script

I ordered 4 of these jobbies. One of them was defective - the switch was weak, plus it wasn't separating the 2 signals, so I had to return one of them. I'm using 1 to separate between one iPod, and one CD player, so that it doesn't drain the sound from either player I'm using. The one plug is hooked up to a transmitter, so I can pipe the sound through all my radios... I'm a little old-school...

Great little device, switches cleanly

Perfect little switcher for my desk, switching between audio sources (in my case a desktop and a laptop). Operating the switch in and of itself does not make a popping noise. Very nice.

This little box saved us a lot of moving and re-wiring in setting up the automation system for our new shortwave stations. Definitely worth the price for the amount of labor it saved!

Works great, no extra noise

Set this up with an iMac going out to split between A) powered speakers and B) headphones. It works perfectly, and I don't detect any background noise or interference, despite being close to the computer and monitors. Seemed expensive, but worth it compared to what I was using.

Well made device to have the option for selecting your sound source. A simple switch does the trick, instantly creating the option stream via bluetooth right in to my hearing aids. Great for late night listening as well online meeting on Zoom. Easy to install too!

question

Basically, I need a headphone A/B switch. That is, switch between two audio sources (computer output and mixer) without having to unplug my headphones. Will this do?

question

Need to connect 2 CB radios (both mono connections) will this switch work with mono to toggle between the two?
Asked by: Matt M.
Yes, I think this stereo switch will work for use with a mono hookup. In the worst case short the two channels provided by the switch together.Peter H.

question

it works only with audio? or with microphone?
Asked by: Anonymous
This switch is going to work with any analog signal send them , but for a microphone switch you need to have a preamp before the switch, and them go from the preamp to switch, also you are going to need the adapter from xlr to 3.5mm, you can use it like a switch from 2 Input A/B Switch to 1 output or 1 Source to 2 switch output A/B .
