    Combine music with Bible-narration

      Comments about RadioShack 6-Inch Stereo Y-Adapter, 1/8"" Jack to 1/8"" Plugs:

      I wanted something that would mix whatever audio background I wanted at the moment into my voice-only narration of the New American Standard Bible by Steven B. Stevens. A helpful employee at Radio Shack showed me this 1/8" Y-cable. When I used to have two iPod nanos, I would plug one male plug of the Y-cable into the Bible-narration iPod, and the other male plug into the music-playing iPod. Then I would plug my headphones into the female end of the Y-cable, and adjust the volume on each iPod. Perfect for mobile listening. Also, I can plug a 1/8" stereo audio cable into the female end, then plug the other end of the cable into any other 1/8" audio input jack (car stereo; home stereo; radio transmitter; etc.) I thank God, because this makes listening to a reading of the Bible even more enjoyable. I'm currently listening to the soundtrack of Star Wars IV: A New Hope from my computer, mixed into the background of Stevens' narration of Genesis from my nano, channeled together into my radio transmitter that broadcasts the signal to every FM receiver within range that's tuned into that frequency.

        This item was hard to find elsewhere so it is hard to compare to others offered by other venders. So far, it works fine, and I expect that it shall continue to do so. [...]

            [...] It also does not funnel two stereo sources into a single output for a pair of earbuds - it instead funnels one into the left and the other into the right channel.

              I bought a scanner headset for the race track but also want to listen to the race on on radio. This adapter works great. I'm able to play my mp3 player then when a signal comes in on the scanner it will switch to the scanner until the communication ceases.

                    This thing is great. I have looked around FOREVER to find something to combine mp3 sound and GPS while I'm on my motorcycle. This thing works great and was cheap compared to the other options. My dad has a device that he paid about [$] for that does more or less the same thing. The only difference is that his has an amplifier and this does not. It sounds great though, both GPS and MP3 player are powerful enough to hear fine. The amplifier is not really necessary since both devices output enough power.

                      I currently use an xbox 360 and a computer on the same monitor and speakers. I allways had to pull out 3 freaking cables (front, back, and center for surround sound) and re-connect them to switch audio back and forth- its a huge pain in the buttocks(<--- lolz at censor). I knew about Y-Cables that let you plug 2 sets of speakers/ headphones to one audio source and thought that there MUST be the inverse of that cable which would work perfectly. After looking around and giving up several times (i was even told by a microcenter sales guy "nope, not possible") but now i FINALLY FOUND IT. Ordered 3 of em, they took a week and a half to come but they work PERFECTLY!!! no more reaching behind my computer to switch cables every two seconds!!!

                        I have two main uses for this splitter: Split between my portable MP3 player and my Nintendo DS for simultaneous listening while traveling, and with my laptop and my TV (which has an headphone jack) to be able to play PC games and watch TV at the same time. This is great because I can multitask without having my roommates hear anything but a peep from my room. I recommend getting one or two headphone extension cables to really make this device versatile.
