There are lots of options. I bought this when i bought my X1. It has served me well.

u/FractalPie · 5 pointsr/headphones

I love it. I personally have the black pair. Be prepared for that cable to break though. Here is a link to a good one just in case.

u/geofox784 · 3 pointsr/MINI

I’ve been working on my display and wiring setup for a while now and I’m finally happy with it so I thought I would share it with r/mini. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated. This is one of my first posts so if I messed up, that’s why.



Aluminum GPS Mount:

AUX in:

Phone/ipod holder:

Charging cable:

gold plated AUX cable:



Lights: I don’t remember exactly, but if someone want the link then I can look more. They were like $25 total.

u/Speedking2281 · 3 pointsr/ableton

I do this to record my voice mails that I don't want to delete.

First, I use a regular auxiliary cord.

Then one end of that cord I plug into my phone, and the other I put THIS ADAPTER on it, and plug it into my Scarlett's microphone jack. Then I arm the track in Ableton and record like normal, as if I was recording anything else via my microphone.

Works like a charm.

Starting from Microphone to GoPro HD Hero2:

AKG-D112 -> Shielded XLR-to-3.5mm stereo cable -> 3.5mm-to-6.3mm stereo adapter -> Microphone Preamp -> Shielded 3.5mm stereo cable -> GoPro Mic Input.

Mic is usually placed in a backpack in a side pocket or outer-most pocket with the microphone itself facing the source of the noise intended to capture (exhaust pipes). With the backpack being right behind me, there is usually a calm pocket of air there and wind noise is almost completely absent.

Amplifier is set to 35-40% volume.

Mixer "timer" & mixer "depth" turned all the way down/off.

Mixer DEFEAT is on. (Mixer is turned off)

*Yes, the total cost of this microphone setup is at or near what the GoPro itself costs. Wannafightaboutit? lol :) What good is a dope onboard video with garbage sound? Especially on a Ducati! My microphone solution is expensive because I needed to find a microphone that can pickup low frequencies at very high sound pressure levels (SPL). This microphone captures a claimed 20hz-17khz @ up to 160db. That is pretty ridiculous. Unfortunately this microphone also requires pre-amplification or I only get very low volume.

u/HotLaMon · 2 pointsr/Twitch

I see this question asked a lot and I have a very cost-effective solution that I notice a lot of people aren't aware of. I was thinking of doing a video guide of it though there are similar methods/walkthroughs on youtube.

DISCLAIMER: This may not be the best method for your specific setup. My method is not the neatest/simplest of setups, but it is cheap. Also, with this setup, your party members' voices will be recorded/streamed with or without their permission, so you should probably inform your party members before you start recording/streaming.

This is my setup for my Xbox One (should also work with PS4, though you may need different cables because IIRC Xbox One uses a proprietary 3.5mm socket):

Things you'll need:

1x 3.5mm splitter that splits mic and speaker.
This is the one I use (may need a specific one for PS4):

2x 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cables

1x PC-compatible headset and microphone, preferably USB. (I use Astros A50)


  1. Plug the 3.5mm splitter into your controller.

  2. Plug 1 3.5mm cable into the speaker that was split from your controller and plug the other end of that cable into your microphone input on your PC.
    The speaker audio coming from your controller is all the sounds you would hear if you had a headset plugged into your controller. What we're doing here is routing that sound into your PC's microphone input so your PC reads it as an audio input device.

  3. Plug 1 3.5mm cable into the mic that was split from your controller and plug the other end of that cable into the speaker output on your PC.
    The mic split from your controller is the microphone input that you would normally use to speak to your party if you had a headset plugged into your controller. What we're doing here is making it so that sound coming out of your PC is now being routed to the controller and therefore to the party/game chat.

  4. Plug your PC-compatible headset/mic into your PC.

  5. Right-click the volume icon on your PC and click on Recording Devices.

  6. Right-click the headset mic you plugged in during Step 4 and set it as Default Device and Default Communications Device, then Right-Click it again and click on Properties. Now click the Listen tab. Click the dropdown menu that says "Playback through this device:" and choose the speaker output that goes to your controller (see Step 2). Check the box that says "Listen to this device" and hit OK. Now any audio that is picked up from the mic on your PC headset will get forwarded to your controller.

  7. While still in the Recording tab of your Sound window, right-click the microphone input that came from your controller (see Step 3). Click the Listen tab and under the dropdown menu chose your PC headset as the "Playback through this device:". Check the "Listen to this device" box and hit OK. Now all the sound coming out of your controller (ie party chat) will get forwarded through your PC's mic input and to your headset's speaker. NOTE: You may also have to change the volume of this under the Levels tab.

    And that's pretty much it. Phew. You will need to tweak some things based on the PC mic/headset you have.

    Things I recommend using with this setup:

    Adobe Audition to add filters to your mic for improved audio quality on your mic (you'll need VAC for this).
u/RedmondTheRobot · 2 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

Something like this is what I'm talking about. I'm just trying to run a Korg Monotron into my Scarlett 2i2. And considering there are very few cables in my small setup, one shitty one that adds noise to my recording is going to ruin it quite a bit, so I'm going to worry about it.

u/e60deluxe · 2 pointsr/audiophile

you dont need a dac unless you want an upgrade from the one already built into the imac.

just run an aux cable from the speaker output from the imac.

you want to strip the wires for the speakers. on the back of the amp there are posts for positive and negative, when you unscrew them they will reveal a hole, pass the bare wire through the hole and screw it down again.

if you cant figure out which is positive and negative touch the wires to a battery, if the speaker cone moves out, you have it correct, if it moves in, you have them backwards.

although, as long as you get them the same between the left and right speaker, it doesnt matter if you have them reversed.

u/DatAssociate · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

If your headphones don't have a female connector at the cups, you'd have to mod it yourself.. using one of these
option 0
option 1

Then you'd just get one of these


There are even more options for the female plug in the guide.

u/Loki-L · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

If you are talking music and stuff, the easiest way is to connect the output connector of your player to the input jack of your computer and start a simply program that can record audio to wav or mp3.

A program likely will come with your OS and the only thing you need is a proper cable (depending on what the out-port of your tape recorder looks like) like this one:

If your playback device doesn't have a jack to plug external speaker in and only has internal speakers you could try putting it next to a microphone and record it that way.

If you have a tape with data on it instead of music things may be a bit more complicated.

u/TeddyJackEddy · 2 pointsr/Music

For a source with the red & white outputs, but only a mic jack on the tape recorder, a Y-cable like one of these can probably patch them together.

Using a laptop as the source, the headphone jack along with a 3.5mm male-to-male cord to the tape recorder's mic input should work. If that renders it inaudible (you can't hear what's playing to monitor it as you record) a quickie solution would be to plug in a headphone splitter w/ headphones into the source device along with your patch cord.

Give the end recording a test listen to make sure the source volume is loud enough, but not so loud that the end result is overmodulated (staticky and crappy sounding).

u/deplorable-d00d · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

Yes, just a mini amp - pick up this - (its a clone of the original Tripath Lepai that's not made anymore, and has a great power supply)

u/veepeedeepee · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've had great luck with my Mediabridge cable, purchased from Amazon 2-3 years ago. It lives in my car, gets constantly pinched by the lid to my center console, and has never once crapped out. It's got pretty sturdy construction and I honestly don't know how you could destroy this.

u/asingam · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I love Amazon but those cheap $2 ones didn't last long for me.

I've bought a Monster one (because I was feeling extra risky and felt like throwing my money away) that didn't last for 6 months.

I bought this:

and it's still running strong for over a year.

Good luck!

u/veryalias · 1 pointr/Nexus

I will say that the aux cable I use seems to need a little extra force to insert the last millimeter or so into my Nexus 5X. I don't know if this could be happening to you either. Are you able to check whether any other devices have this issue when plugged into your car the same way?

u/cerran · 1 pointr/headphones

[This] ( is a popular replacement cable, quite cheap and the one I got. Don't need anything fancy - but I'm not exactly a cable believer.

u/CA719 · 1 pointr/Nexus5

yeah, that's about the only thing I'm not a fan of. I have a pair of Audio Technica M50s and the plug-in jack is too wide to fit in the headphone jack, but I don't really use those with my phone too often anyway.

The thing that did cause an issue was trying to use the AUX jack in my car, to listen to my music. I owned 3 male-to-male audio cables and all of them had really wide jacks just like the headphones. I had to buy a specific cable to fit the case properly.

This is the cable I bought from Amazon and it fits perfectly. In case anyone else has a similar problem.

u/Geachh · 1 pointr/camaro

I just got this and this and run the phone without turning it's screen off. Gets the job done perfectly, also got a free GPS app that works great (Waze).

u/raiehan · 1 pointr/videography

Thanks for the help!

Anything like this or this would work then, I assume?

u/A_Water_Fountain · 1 pointr/techsupport

You will need a 3.5mm to 3.5mm M/M audio cable to transmit the audio from the computer and use your TV like speakers. As you have found out, DVI does not carry audio.

Examples of cables:

u/MathiasBoegebjerg · 1 pointr/piano

When you record with MIDI, you don't actually record any sound at all, you record which keys you press and when you press the sustain pedal and so on. All your actions, but no sound.

If you want to get the sound from the piano, you can use a cable from the headphone output on the piano, to the microphone input in your computer with a standard 3.5mm jack (unless you have a 1/4 inch in your piano, in which case you need the little transformer).

You will need a cable like this, but you'll most likely have one somewhere, it's a very standard cable.

Now you can just use any audio recording software you want. Audacity was mentioned, which could easily do it. I believe Windows has a built in sound recording feature, which could do it as well.

If you want to get a REALLY good sound, you should still use the MIDI format, but you'd have to get a good piano sound too. Here's a collection of good sounds. It's quite expensive though. You can edit your track with software too, I don't know if Audacity can do that, it might, but I use something called Reaper. If you made a missplay or something went wrong, you can remove a note, add notes, change velocity, everything. It's quite good and not that difficult at all. With the piano sound software (Komplete) you can use it in real-time too, to make your piano sound like the grandest of all the grand pianos, for an amazing sound, though I'd suggest you go for Synthogy then which, to me at least, has the superior sound.

Whelp, I went out on a tangent here, good luck OP!

EDIT: How do you like your piano? I have the Privia 850 here next to me, just waiting for christmas to set it up.

u/GazaIan · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Jesus, how old and behind the times is everyone in this thread? There's way too many of you using FM radio here that don't even like it. Invest in an auxiliary cable if you have an aux port. There are cars that probably date back to the 90s with aux ports. Oldest vehicle in my family that's got one is my dad's Sienna from '06. My 09 Accord has it.

Maybe you're driving something really, really old. Maybe, for some bizarre reason, you still have a cassette player in your car. Get yourself a casette adapter. Inserts into your cassette player, and you plug the other end into your phone, your iPod, whatever. Get Pandora, get Spotify, get Rhapsody (I recommend Rhapsody, it plays new shit depending on the artist).

I just use an iPod, aux cable, and play through that. So much more convenient than ever using that FM Radio that hardly plays music, and when it does, I heard the same song 9 times in an hour.

u/abovequator · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

As kschange suggested. Something like this plugged into your phone and stereo aux port is probably best idea.

u/rizzle1 · 1 pointr/MusicEd

A wireless solution is the best, but the SA-AK240 has a "music port" on the front. Put all of your music on your iPhone/smartphone and connect it from the headphone port to the music port on your CD player using this cable

u/kiwiandapple · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

> Sennheiser HD 280s

Ow, those are indeed not bad at all. But the X1's will very likely surprise you. I mean, I currently on the HD 598s, which are very neutral / balanced headphones, designed for instrumental, classical, vocal music. Despite that, even with these headphones and a pretty budget sound card (don't buy a sound card!) they do sound pretty good when listening to electronic music, but they lack in the bass department, I mean.. it's obviously there, but it isn't very punchy.

The X1's don't even need to get an external DAC/AMP. I mean, they don't technically need an AMP at all, so you could consider to simply use the on-board audio for a start and see how you like the sound.
Note the X1's do need about a week of burn-in. This means that they will start to sound a bit better after a decent amount of usage.
Also I just read that the stock cable isn't that great, since it's a pretty high impedance cable. Which does affect the bass.
Cheap solution to fix this right away.

I also just read that you don't want to have a big head. If you do, they might be a bit tight / clamping.


This is a big list, but you can simply hit "ctrl + f" and search for X1 to get a nice detailed review for these headphones in terms of build quality, comfort, design issues, sound stage & amping.

u/V3loxxx · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

This media bridge AUX cable is thiiick. I've only had it a month or two but I don't see myself ever having to buy another unless I lose it or slam it in a car door. 10/10 s://

As for USB, anker w/ their lifetime warranty and excellent customer service. The Kevlar braided ones really aren't worth it unless you like the look IMO the rubber ones will last just as long it seems.

u/Sh1fterNA · 1 pointr/MINI

This may not be the cheapest option, but currently on my r53 I am running an aux kit from the back of my radio into the glove box and then I purchased a 5 foot aux cord so every one in the car can take a turn playing music.

u/FlyByDerp · 0 pointsr/PS4

This is the 3.5mm cord I bought, this will do you no good though if the side port for the x12 is 2.5mm
