Almost all phones, computers, keyboards, and CD players (if you’re kicking it old school) have one output for your headphones. This means that you will have a tough go of it sharing your music and videos in real-time with another person. Travel tunes, family Skype sessions, and quiet jams when your roommates are sleeping should be able to be shared.
These headphone splitters can help you connect with your pals, or keep your kids quiet in the back of the car. We have also included an option for those of you who are working on your music, podcasts, or other audio projects. All in all, these headphone splitters will let you share your favorite songs and shows quickly and conveniently.

The Belkin RockStar headphone splitter is a great way to share audio with more of your favorite folks. It is also a great resource for families when you all want to watch the same thing—think long car trips or airplane travel. It comes with five AUX ports for attaching your headphones or cables and one hardwired cable to connect to your device. The sound quality remains the same no matter how many listeners there are and the lightweight design makes it easy to grab and go. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also use this splitter to connect multiple devices to one speaker’s output, but we’ll let you be in charge of that experiment. The RockStar is the way to go if you are looking to come together with more than one of your best companions.

This headphone splitter will connect to all devices with an auxiliary headphone jack in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. Not only will it connect you, but the Oxygen-Free-Copper Conductor and Gold-Plated Jack eliminate signal loss and static noise to keep your sound clear and comprehensible. The braided cable is stylish and also provides an extra layer of protection. Many headphone splitters either have a fixed or relatively short cable to connect to your device; the Dukabel gives you two styles that have a 39-inch cable so you can stretch out without worrying you’ll be disconnected. This headphone splitter is great for being on the move or spreading out on the couch with a friend while your roommate works from home.
You’ll never hear “it’s too loud” again. Amazon
The iLuv headphone splitter does exactly what you need it to do when sharing audio, plus it lets you control your volume. Most headphone splitters will respond to the overall volume settings on the connected device, but this one allows you to customize your volume without sacrificing the audio quality. This splitter also comes in a USB-C compatible model so you can plug into your spare computer ports to listen to your favorite songs. The iLuv is compatible with all your favorite headphones, tablets, phones, and computers for a great split sound wherever you are.

This headphone splitter is a reliable option for those who need something compatible with a ¼-inch slot. Typically, this means you are someone whose needs demand professional audio equipment of some kind. These headphone splitters are a reliable way to duplicate a stereo signal and will be compatible with most audio interfaces, mixers, and other playback systems. The splitter works best when you use it to share your sound with another set of headphones but it can also be used to slyly send your signal to two different amps. The Tisino splitter is going to give you a great sound with the connection you need for all your creative gear.

Lately, phones are starting to lose their traditional headphone ports. This adapter is going to be compatible with the iPhone 7 and all later models, as well as iPads running iOS 9.2-iOS 13. You can plug two sets of headphones into this splitter and charge your phone at the same time. This is the perfect way to keep yourself and one other entertained for hours during travel. It should be noted, however, that you cannot use the adapter to make or receive phone calls. Keep your device charged and downsize the number of cables you need to connect your iPhone to you and your seatmate.
