Headphone Amp for 2 Headphones
 
So I am in the market for a headphone amp. The rub is I need it to be capable of having two people listen to two separate headphones at the same time. I live in an apartment building and unfortunately my listening room/home theater is up against my neighbors bedroom. With that said for late night listening/watching movies my wife and I are going to use headphones. Thank you in advance.

That really isn’t a problem, unless you both want individual volume control.

The Bryston BHA-1 is simply amazing, especially at its price point.

Be sure the headphones are of the same sensitivity relatively speaking or you will never be happy with one volume control. :D

Even that may not be good enough for one volume control. For instance, my wife likes to listen much more loudly that I do.
For listening to movies you might be happy with something like the AKG Y50BT, which has built-in volume control. Set at a moderate level for both of you. After that you will each have your own volume control on the AKGs. Plus, they have Bluetooth aptX communication, which works well if you want to go wireless.

Can't agree more with Ivan. The Bryston BHA-1 is a great sounding/performing headphone amp.

I really like the idea. Only problem is we already purchased headphones. The more I think about it the more I think we should both definitely have independent volume control. But then this opens a whole can of worms. 1. There is only one headphone down mix out of my Bryston SP4. 2. I then need to buy to headphone Amps.

My Woo Audio WA-6SE has multiple ports and I have done that with my wife.
