Like any good mobile technologist, there’s a few stock items that I carry everywhere in my PowerBook gear bag. One of them is a headphone splitter so that I can jack a friend into my iPod or PowerBook during air or train travel. This little doodad can be found for about two bucks from Radio Shack.
Griffin Technology has a new spin on an old favorite. I’ve been playing with their just-announced headphone splitter called SmartShare ($20) and it’s different that the run-of-the-mill “dumb” splitter. SmartShare gives you independent volume control on each channel. This way you can jam the latest house track from Deep Dish while your mate keeps it on low.
The SmartShare is available now for pre-order from Griffin.
