Cables for hs80m speakers?

Hey, nub here,

I'm fairly new to speaker/audio interface setup so can someone please tell me for the love of god what cables i should get for the pair of hs80m i recently ordered?? I don't know if i'm just incompetent, but i've been scouring the internet for the last 2 hours for an answer...

I own a macbook pro with apogee one (unbalanced output).

Apparently i need some kind of splitter cable, since the apogee one only has one 1/8 inch output ... can someone please give the exact name of the cable i need? There are so many....

btw the speakers come with 1/4 inch phone jack connectors and xlr cables...


Thanks a million times in advance!

Based on the apogee website, it seems like you need a 1/8' TRS to dual 1/4' TS - Y cable

Something like this: Pro Co IPMB2Q-5 | Sweetwater.com

Here's the apogee website FAQ: How do I connect ONE to powered studio monitors?

Make sure the HS80s can take an unbalanced (TS) input.
