Using headphones direct to electro acoustic
« on: February 12, 2021, 09:05:44 pm »
Hi all, am I right in thinking I should get sound through headphones plugged into the built in preamp and tuner of a semi acoustic?

No, there’s not enough output to drive the headphones without a headphone amplifier. The other thing is that obviously you would still hear the guitar acoustically so it wouldn’t be any quieter.

I'm no expert and have not tried it myself but I would think yes, as you have a pre-amp, I assume battery powered. Without an amplified signal I would say no. Guess it would be similar to plugging directly into an audio interface that acts as a pre-amp feed into a PC. If you have cans with a 1/4 inch jack all should be good but if they have 3.5mm you'll need a 1/4 inch adapter.

Hope that helps and that what I presume is right. A technical wizard will no doubt be along shortly.

Cheers

Toby

Thanks guys, I have tried it and had no sound output just wasn't sure if that was right. Got in touch with Fishman who made the preamp and they said no. All good  tho as I have a VOX ac plug in amp which works.
