Playing movies, music or games on your laptop is a great way to pass the time when on a long flight or while patiently sitting in a waiting room. Being considerate, you don't want to disturb others by blasting your laptop's sound, so you hook up a pair of headphones. The problem lies when you have another person wanting to hear the output, because most laptops only offer a single headphone jack. However, with a dual headphone jack splitter, you can overcome this limitation. This splitter takes a single signal and splits it into two equal audio outputs.
