Far more impressive than a 6-way headphone amplifier, the HP60 takes headphone mixing to another level of simplicity and sophistication.
As the engineer, you have full control over the master section – level controls for Mix A (perhaps the main stereo bus), Mix B (stereo again – could be used for click), and also a ‘talk’ button for routing your dynamic mic through the talent’s cans.
Each of the six channels has a separate stereo input (for their own mic / instrument / send), and they have control for blend between Mix A and Mix B, with a trim for the Ext input, plus overall level control. There is also a stereo output for each of the six channels – just in case you need to route the signal to a wireless in-ear system, which may not require the amplified output.
