    HX Stomp Headphones Out

    Just curious. I am running a TRS split cable from the headphones out on the Stomp into a pair of KRK desktop monitors in stereo. It sounds amazing. I know that the intended way to hook up the stomp would be using the outputs on the back (one to the left KRK and one to the Right KRK). To be honest I tried it both ways and it sounds identical. Is there any problem with just using the headphones out into monitors instead of headphones? Is it somehow inferior? Any knowledge on this would be much appreciated.

    Using A Tube Amp With Helix

    Hey Everyone, First off I am new to these forums so I am sorry if this question has already been answered. I had a hard time finding an answer for it so I figured I would ask. I just recently bought a Line 6 Helix LT and it is on its way to me. I know you can use Helix as just a pedal board with effects through a tube amp via the "4CM" (Four Cable Method), and that would work for me when I jam with buddy's. But with my Fender Hot Rod Deville it is hard to play that in my bedroom and sound good. SO, finally to the question. I was just wondering if this is even possible I don't know? Can I take my Fender amp "head" and unplug it from the 4-10 speakers and use the amp "head" as an amp in Helix and combine that with a 4x10 cab model? then I could just output that through a nice pair of headphones and I could play my nice tube amp in the middle of the night and not bother anyone? It almost sounds too good to be true. But in my head I think it could work! Let me know what you think!

    Helix LT with Sennheiser HD 600

    Hi all! Short introduction: I own Helix LT and I love it to bits. I am, what you could probably call an average guitar player nowadays. I started playing 3 years ago, so I am relatively inexperienced. I play every day for my own pleasure, mostly blues and funk, and I do not gig. After I got helix I sold my tube amps and pedals (this is another typical thing about me, I think I know more about gear than actual playing the instrument, damn you YouTube!;-) ). Helix takes 10x less space, and my 'studio'/room does not transform into a sauna, as it was while playing tube amps. I play through JBL LSR305 studio monitors, but I have to admit that although the sound is great, it does not feel like playing with an amp in a room. What convinced me to sell all my analog gear, was how good the Helix works with my headphones (Sennheiser HD 600), plugged directly into the Helix. I can play along songs, and backing tracks without any hassle, it sounds great, and I get good warm feeling when I hear myself playing alongside SRV or BB King. Playing through headphones feels really liberating, because I do not have to worry about disturbing my wife and my neighbours, I do not feel self-conscious about my playing, and I practice much more. Now, to the topic. I did not have any problems with setting up my Helix with two JBLs LSR305. For me, it sounds close enough to the tube Marshall and Fender amps that I sold. However, initially I had a lot of problems with setting up Helix with my Sennheiser HD 600 headphones. There was only a single CustomTone patch that worked for me with the headphones, called SRV Sauce. After close examination it turned out that it was because it was set up so that; 50% signal went through a guitar cabinet simulation, and 50% went through a loop that bypasses it. I love a clean blackface sound with a lot of treble, and I used to set up my Fender amp with treble at 8-10 and bass at 1-3. I found that for me; mixing a direct signal from the amp model in Helix, with the signal passing through the cabinet simulation; is the most important setting, that makes playing through Sennheiser HD 600 really natural and amp-like. This is mostly for clean/crunchy sounds (not for high gain), with low output vintage style pickups (both single coils and humbuckers). It sound much more natural, and amp-like, than when I pass 100% signal through the cabinet simulation, which sounds very muddy. My question is: is this because the headphone amplifier inside the Helix and my headphones work as kind of a cabinet? From what I understand Sennheiser HD 600 are not real monitors and they colour the sound. Or is this method more similar to what Nile Rodgers did with plugging straight into a desk? Sorry for the long post.
  4. I get clipping even at low volumes using the headphones out. I am using Sennheiser HD650 headphones (I also tried Sony MDR-V6 headphones), and even with a relatively clean tone I still get clipping. When I record via USB with the Helix, the level is quite low (never going above -6db) often wavering around -10db or -15db, so I don't think the level of my patch is too high. Help? Issue solved.
  5. I am having a frustrating time with my Helix. I have a set of Rokit KRK headphones and my patches sound great through these headphones - lots of clarity/detail in the amp modelling etc. When I hook up my studio monitors - Rokit 6 KRK's - the resulting sound has far more less clarity/and sounds a bit dull to my ears. Anyone else had similar problems, I have looked on the forum and most people have the opposite problem ie Helix sounds great through monitors but bad through headphones. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I have been using my Pod to record in Reaper, but I realized that until now I had been using WASAPI drivers instead of ASIO. My setup is as follows: Guitar into the Guitar In on the Pod, USB on the Pod into the USB on my computer, and headphones into the audio jack of my computer. I am essentially using the Pod as a DI box and reamping with VSTs in Reaper, as such, I don't want the sound of the Pod monitored, but the processed Reaper signal. When I attempt to use the Line 6 ASIO drivers, I cannot figure out how to send the output to my headphones. I have tried ASIO4All as well, and it shows the Pod as unavailable. Is there anything I can do with this setup, or would I need an additional piece of equipment in order to achieve this? Thanks in advance!

    HEADPHONES FOR HD500x

    I am wondering what the best headphones are for the hd500x. I have a price range of about $225-$250. Can anyone help me out with some suggestions and reasonings behind them please? Im new to this and want to get the right set the first time
  8. Forgive me if this has been addressed elsewhere (I looked but couldn't find the answer). I'm currently using the Relay G10T with my Spider V 120. It works great. It doesn't have a receiver because, apparently, it's already built into the 120. But I'd like to purchase some wireless headphones and was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to reduce interference or latency (if they've even had any problems), or if they use a particular pair of headphones and/or transmitter that work well for them. Any suggestions? Has anyone had any problems using wireless or bluetooth headphones simultaneously with the relay on their Spider V?
  9. Simple question here. I have a really awesome set of bluetooth headphones and just bought a Pod UX1 to compliment my Spider Valve MKII. I have opened Logic Pro X and also tried Garageband and noticed latency. I also noticed that Pod Farm will not work with the BT headphones at all. Like the original question asks, is latency avoidable? Also, is it possible to get Pod Farm to see the BT headphones. System is a MacBook Pro 2.8GHz i7 with 16GB RAM. Thanks everyone.
  10. Hi everyone, I bought a Helix a few weeks ago and I've got to say I'm absolutely blown away with it! So far I've mostly been using it with my reference monitors and sometimes into an amp until I get sorted with a portable FRFR system. I'd like to start using headphones for late night practice, and so I'm looking at some nice over-ear headphones like the Sennheiser HD650. It seems most headphones in this category need a headphone amplifier depending on the source. So I'm wondering, can the Helix drive high-impedance headphones? Are other helix users using one? Please, let me know what you do headphone users!
  11. Is it possible to hook up bluetooth headphones with the Firehawk FX? To use as a monitor. Thanks!

    Headphone setup?

    Hi, I'm still getting to grips with my Helix after a few months, so this might not be the right question! I mostly use my Helix with Headphones once the kids are in bed. I've got an entry level set of Audio-Technica ATH-M40X Headphones, which seem to have a reasonably flat response compared to my old entry level Sennheisers. I also have a pair of Mackie 4" monitors. I also use both for my PC. In terms of setup, I'm sending the Helix signal to the Speakers/Headphones via the 1/4" out, through a small Behringer mixer. I'm also mixing the PC sound through the mixer. This way I can jam to backing tracks on my PC, which is 90% of my usage. I've got a bunch of presets including paid for ones from Glenn DeLaune, Fremen, Marco Fanton and Ben Vesco (I recommend them all btw!) Some sound great on Headphones, others just don't work as well. I appreciate that headphones aren't moving as much air as a speaker, but interestingly, most sound better when I connect the headphones to the Headphone Out on the Helix. Does anyone have any suggestions to experiment with, in the preset EQ/settings? Thanks
  13. I just picked up a used HD500 mostly for use as a headphone practice amp. With dogs and neighbors and all, I can't fire up my real amps very often at the house. Problem is every amp sounds fuzzy. Not a good fuzzy. A digital fuzzy. No effects, some effects, doesn't matter. Clean is digitally fuzzy, distorted amp is fuzzy. I've been through the tone guide, I've been through pretty much every parameter via the edit software, I've tried everything and it all sounds horrible. Output is set to studio. I've loaded the latest firmware. Whatever I try, it just sounds cheap and fuzzy. Anyone have a solution for this? Thing is, I have an old kidney bean pod and it sounds great through headphones. No fuzz, no cheap, just warm and pretty real. How does a product several generations newer sound waaaaaay worse? You could say, Go back the old pod then, dummy, and that'd be fair enough, but then I lose out on all the power and flexibility of switching cabs and mics and effect order and values, etc. I really was looking forward to newly remodeled versions of the old amps. The old Plexi is really not a great model for a holy grail amp. It feels like it's missing the old A.I.R. II technology, which made the pod sound really good through headphones. Is that somewhere in the setup where I can't find it? Without that, it just sounds like a cheap spider amp. How do people use these for recording? I just can't get it to sound like a true amp.

    HD500X

    Right now there is a direct function of any volume and headphone volume for me. That is, if I want a hotter signal into Audacity no matter what is turn up..E.G. Master volume, computer volume, or mixer volume I hear it louder in my headphones. How can I get a hotter signal without hearing it loud? Thank you 0
  15. Which Headphones does Line 6 recommend with the X3 Pro? I read somewhere they should be 250 Ohm impedance. Is this right? Do headphones sound different than the recording? Can the same phones be used on the HD Pods?
  16. Firehawk 1500 arrived this morning. Very impressed. Default patches a bit eurgh, but have dialled in some nice ones of my own already. However, headphone output seems to be mono-only even when the output is wide stereo. Same headphones yield Stereo on my HD Pro X... Anyone else experienced this?

    Help! Pod HD Pro X no sound

    So i got the Pod HD Pro X today, but I cant get a sound out of it. My headphones are plugged into the Phones input at the front, the guitar in the guitar input of course. As input mode i selected guitar and as output Studio/Direct. The Pod HD is connect to my PC via USB. I have installed all drivers/software and the monkey does not show any new updates available. I can change the effects in Pod HD Pro x Edit and the pod hd is also reacting but i still have no sound (when playing music and stuff) and no guitar sound... I used the Line 6 UX2 before and I just had to plug in the guitar, the headphones and the USB and I had sound when watching youtube videos and stuff and guitar sound when I opened Pod Farm... Help me please! Greetings :) Edit: i dont know what I did, but i hear the sound the PC makes now, but still no guitar sound, although the signal is shown in Reaper and the Tuner is also working
  18. I original posted this under the X3 Live topics but I guess it would also apply to the HD 500... I was curious if there's any issue(s) with using the headphone input as an in ear monitor while playing live? I was playing in a church setting last night and I tried it. I didn't have any issues but just wanted to know if there are settings for this or if there could be issues using the X3 Live like this? The XLR output was taking my signal to the house. I did have a wedge monitor that was basically the singers mix that had mostly vocals and acoustic. To help the tech guy out, and needing more of me in the monitor, I plugged in my headphones. Using earbuds I was able to leave one ear in and the other ear free to pick up the stage volume and the drummer. Seemed to work but was just curious if anyone uses this set up as an option? If this is an options, are there separate volume levels to increase headphone levels without increasing the level to the house? I just put my master volume level around 1-2 o'clock position and that was enough to get what I needed in the ear and the sound man mixed me in with the band on his end. Thanks
  19. Hi. This is my first post and any help is greatly appreciated. My SPVX is connected to iPad via lightning cable. I'm using Auria and I'm happy with it. My L and R outputs are connected (via balanced jacks) to active monitors and I also have headphones plugged into the SPVX. Direct Monitoring is on. My problem is that the sound is output to the speakers and the headphones (might sound obvious but I had assumed the direct monitoring would come through the headphones only and would not come through the speakers unless in playback). Obviously this is giving me feedback and/or unwanted audio in the recordings. The easiest way round the problem is to unplug or turn off the monitors when recording and switch them back on for mixing. However, I don't want to be fussing back and fore with that if I can help it. Any suggestions to mute the speakers during recording? Thanks in advance.

    FRFR headphones

    Do FRFR heap hones exist, in ear monitors maybe? Looking to work some tones without waking the house up and or just rehearsing.
  21. I saw this posted somewhere else, but can't seem to find it. I've got a four year old, which basically means a lot of my discretionary play time is limited to after nigh-nigh time. I currently run tracks off my computer headphone jack straight to the HD500 CD/MP3 jack. It works great and is one of the big plusses of the HD series for me. I could always run to my mixer and headphone off of that, but that is yet more cables to put away at night. Is there a native way to run outboard tracks from a computer headphone jack straight in to the Helix for those of us who need to keep it quiet at times when we woodshed?
  22. My UX2 came in a few days ago. I got some decent Bose headphones with a 1/4 inch adapter so I could hook it up to the phones jack, and I noticed something strange. When I plug it in all the way there is no sound or it is at extremely low volume. I've checked knobs and settings and it doesn't make sense why it isn't working. But then, I noticed if I plug in the phones about 3/4 of the way in I can manage to hit a "sweet spot" where the sound actually comes in, but this is bothersome as it doesn't always like staying in place. EDIT: Resolved. It was just a crappy adapter.

    PODHD 500x Stereo Out vs Headphone

    Sorry if this has been discussed in previous threads, but I can't recreate the spacious of listening directly to my tone from the headphone out. I have my pod set to Studio Direct Out, the board itself is set to line and not amp, and my 1/4' cables work great. Despite that I'm not hearing depth in my delays or movement in my reverbs. I also don't have any mono summing effects in my chain. I do have two h9's in my effects loop and pursued this setup with stereo effects in mind. Am I missing something basic?

    HD500X: outs, headphones & master vol

    I use the UNBALANCED OUTPUT jacks to send my audio to the mixer, and I'd like to use the PHONES jack with headphones so I could hear myself. According to the manual, the MASTER vol controls all the levels: if I change the PHONES vol, the UNBALANCED OUTPUT vol will also be changed... is this the way it works? If so, the headphones are simply unusable in a live situation, since I have to redo my mixer level every time I change my MASTER vol! The X3 Live has a way to deal with this, can't the HD500X? Did Line6 remove this feature from a supposedly more advanced unit?! :o :o :o
  25. Which Headphones does Line 6 recommend with the HD Series? I read somewhere they should be 250 Ohm impedance. Is this right? Do headphones sound different than the recording? Can the same phones be used on the X3 Pro?
