(Wired.com) I can think of precisely one use for a headphone jack splitter, and that’s for watching movies on the iPad when I’m on a plane or train, traveling with The Lady. However, I am also aware that there are couples whose individual musical tastes don’t make each other physically sick, and who might like to share a jack socket as they walk romantically down the street.
Now, these promiscuous listeners can engage in a dirty aural threesome.
The Music Branch Headphone Splitter comes from Kikkerland, and splits the signal three ways. Lord knows how you’re supposed to walk when connected to two other people by the ears, or even how loud the resulting music would be after being split like this, but the price is certainly right: The Music Branch costs just $10, and comes in a variety of stick and non-stick-like colors: white, brown and light blue.
It also solves another problem of regular splitters: they’re tiny and easy to lose. The Music Branch is not only chunky, but it can hang off a keyring by it’s chain and end-cap. Neat.
The Music Branch is available now.
