Yes, what can be done is to get a headphone socket( you will get to buy the inline type fully covered) Make sure that the female socket if wired with the pins across the channels connected in series with a 10 ohm/1watt resistor and connected together to the wire to the heaphone male socket which must go to your drums kit.
Now the headphone you have if this is a one side type, you must get a regular stereo type and plug into the female socket.
You will now hear both the channesl equally.The reason why a sincel side is preferred is to listed to the music through one and hear your playing on the other. but I would also have preferred to hear both lightly than one side to make our perception oriented.
I am also a drummer by hobby but I prefer the accoustic types.
Happy drumming. Please dont forget to rate my advice.

The Yamaha has stereo output through the headphones, so I suspect there is a problem with your headphones, or headphone jack. Try the headphones on another device to see if they're good.
To check the headphone jack, you will have to partially disassemble the unit to check that the contact prongs are not sprung, and that they are making contact when the stereo plug is inserted.
You might try spraying the jack with electrical contact cleaner, and working the plug in and out a few times, since it could be dirt or slight oxidation restricting the signal.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

What is the safety limit in decibels before hearing is damaged by loud music?


85 decibels is the generally accepted limit for 8 hours of exposure per day (you have to give your ears time to rest in between).
At 91 decibels you have about 2 hours before suffering damage.
At 100 decibels, it's about 15 minutes of safe time, and immediate damage (no safe duration) can occur at around 140 decibels (about as loud as a jet engine or firecracker).

The important thing to note about volume and ear safety is that you have to rest your ears (i.e. nothing too much louder than a conversation) for the rest of the day to avoid risking damage. That means that after 2 hours at 91 decibels, you need to rest your ears for 22 hours before these guidelines can apply again.

Many bands play shows at around 100 decibels, so invest in some HearOs or other decent protection.

Hello,
Those earphones, as many others suffer the same damage and it's the signal cable at one of the ends, either the 1/8 jack that goes to the audio source and/or the other end, that goes to the ear speaker piece, not necessarily should be disconnected, but it's a common fail for this tinny wires to open internally just very close at ends, because the main strssed part of this cables is precisely there, hope it helps...

When I plug in stereo headphones in the casio wk 210, the sound only comes out of one ear. I didn't really care about that before, but now when I connect a line out from the piano to my computer to...


The output of the casio may only be mono, you can buy splitters to create a 2x channel output. Is there any other outputs from the casio other than headphones, usually there are red/white RCA outputs (Phono's) which would be better for connecting to your soundcard.

Hope I was of use to you, good luck.

NO SOUND


Blown soeaker or amp. Only way to analyze is to open it aand do testing. First plug headphones into the 1/4 inch line output jack and see if anything comes through... it will only be in one ear as the ouptu is not a stereo output... If it comes to there, then the preamp and line driver is working, leaving the speaker and power amp suspect. If nothing ocmes out, I suspect the power SUPPLY might have failed.

Hi i would like to know how to connect in ear monitor to my behringer xenyx 1002fx


by in ear monitor I assume you are talking about a set of stereo headphones.
.
These would plug into the PHONES jack, which is located just to the left of the MAIN OUT jacks.
If your headphones have a 1/8 inch jack, you will require a 1/8 inch female to 1/4 inch male stereo adapter.
These are fairly common, and can usually be purchased at any audio store or Radio Shack or The Source by Circuit City.

Some Headphones have an inherent hiss noise when they are connected to my wireless sennheiser EK 300 IEM G3 receiver. It seems to be a problem particularly with high-end IEMs which are highly sensitive...


Hiss is a problem of statistical noise in electronic devices due to the laws of physics plus circuit design.

One thing to do is to improve the signal to noise ratio (SNR) by properly setting gains. It is POSSIBLE that the IEM's you are using are too low impedance for the receivers resulting in you having to use excessive gain at the receiver. Your receiver gain control should not have to be above 60% of the way up. If you are above that, the ear buds are probably lower impedance than the receiver is designed for... and remember the manufacturer will LIE on the capability of the thing they are trying to sell.

The receiver is speced at 32 ohm drive... IF your ear buds are less than that impedance, they are NOT suitable. Conversely if they are too high, thaat will ALSO cause you to turn up the receiver gain too much and result in poor SNR.

You want to make sure the transmitter is being driven at line level so receivers get adequate input audio so gain doesn't have to be run too high.

I have a 1680S. How do I hook up my in-ear monitor? I plan to run two house speakers but no floor monitors. Thanks,


DO NOT connect your in-ear monitors to the power amp out using the MAIN/Mon speaker option as it would be goodbye hearing and fried ear buds..
Get a very small and in-expensive headphone amp and connect its input to the 1/4 inch Monitor output jack.

When i put my ear monitors on i only hear on one side i bought a nother pair of ears but now when i sing the music in my ear cuts out?


You may have bought "noise cancelling" ear buds and those cancel out local noise... NOT the type you want for this application !!!

The wires to earbuds are really tender and easily damaged... Make sure the replacement earbuds are the right type for use with your wireless... if necessary, call the vendor to verify.

BR 8 headphone jack


This may also sound stupid but; have you tried a different set of headphones? If you have never used the headphone jack there might be a chance that the contacts inside the jack are dirty from airborn pollutants such as cigarette smoke or cooking smoke. Another good example is if you have a flute or silverware laying around in the open , they will tarnish from the sulfur dioxide in the air. Try spraying a very small squirt of contact cleaner on a stereo plug and plugging and unplugging it into the jack. Make sure you do this with the power turned off. If that doesn't work, do it to the jack itself. Only use a very small amount. If that doesn't work you may have a bad solder joint in the connections to the jack or a circuitry problem. The jacks sometimes a have a built in switching circuit to defeat the signal when phones are plugged in and sometimes the jack fails. Hope this gives you some ideas.

Bought a new electronic drum set, Yahama DTXPLORER, cannot get sound


Double check and make sure all the chords are plugged into the control box for your set. Most electronic drum sets require the use of headphones or some sort of PA system to hear whats being played. If you could expand a bit on the description of your problem, I should be able to help more.
