Wireless headphones coming out of aux!

hey all,

i have been looking aruond for some floor monitors and while i was doing my research... something just popped in my head

what happens if you buy cheap wireless headphones and connect the transmitter to the aux-send(with an headphone amp of course)... wouldnt that just be like In-Ear-Monitoring but at a much lower lower price?!

something like this

I haven't tried this myself but dunno why it shouldn't work in theory.
Still I suppose the transmitter in real ones is way better than in cheap wireless headphones.

Also you would have to shell out bucks for that headphone amp if you didn't already have it...

I have headphone amp

Here for the gear

I do this! I have an ART HeadAmp6 Pro headphone amp. It has six channels, each of which has its own "aux" input that can be mixed with the "main" input.

Two of the channels on my mixer/interface (a TASCAM US2000) have inserts. I route the "send" side of the inserts into two of the headphone amp's "aux" inputs, allowing custom monitor mixes for two vocalists.

In your case, make sure you know what level the various signals are at. I erroneously thought the "aux" inputs on the HeadAmp6 Pro were capable of accepting mic or instrument levels. In fact, they require line-level inputs. Your gear is probably different.
