A mono output should still be heard from both earphones. Can you borrow some cabled headphones to plug straight into your amp? That would tell you whether it’s a cable/amp issue, or whether it’s specific to the bluetooth setup.
Bluetooth also has a lot of latency, it’s not really suitable for wireless guitar playing. Cabled headphones are the go… or there are a few ultra low latency wireless ones around but they’re not bluetooth.
I tried a couple of different configurations. the bt transmitter/receiver as its both.
if I use wireless headphones(plugged into) my ipad i get stereo
If I remove the cable and connect the bt device and pair with wireless headset I only get mono even though I’m using the same cable , I dont get that…
Just make sure you get cans with a decent cable length. My old Sennheiser’s have a 3m cable, which is great for playing standing up. I normally use my Shure SRH440 in front of the PC, (as the amp sits under the desk and my AI is just to the side), but swapped the stock coiled cable (they’re detachable) for a 2m extension for the same reason - and a further 2m extension in case I go all Wilko Johnson !!
I’m guessing by mono, you mean you’re only getting sound in one ear?
Does the amp have a headphone output?
Normally I’d expect a headphone output to have a full TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve - aka stereo output connector), but if it’s a line out, it may only be a basic two contact Phone connector.
If that’s the case, what you’d need is a basic mono to stereo converter, which splits the single signal wire (tip) so it connects to the Tip and Ring of stereo connector.
However if the socket works with a pair of wired stereo headphones, it could be because of how the headphone socket is powered, which might not be compatible with the bluetooth receiver.
It can be. If my wife wants to listen to me playing, she can just plug her earphones into mine and she hears what I hear. Can also be used to watch movies together using a mobile device on a plane or whatever.
I have the right side image and a few of them, I’ll try again tomorrow but i suspect their fine ass my attempt with the ipad doesn’t use a jack, its just straight connection with either the headphones or the BT device.
Ipad > cable>headphone = stereo
Ipad>cable>bt device to headphones = Mono , with the same cable being used on the BT device
