Previewing with headphones

Mac Mac iPad iPad iPhone iPhone Android Android

The basic process of DJing is to seamlessly mix the playing track into the next track. And to do this successfully, you need to be able to pre-listen or cue the next track in your headphones to make sure it’s beatmatched and sounding great for the dance floor.

Since your Mac, iPad, iPhone, or Android device only has a single audio jack, you can use one of the following two solutions to simultaniously connect both a speaker system and headphones for pre-cueing.

DJ Cable

for DJ enthusiasts

DJ Cable lets you cue up your next track in the headphones independently of what’s playing through the speakers.

Made specially for djay, DJ Cable is wired to enable djay’s Split Output function for pre-cueing. It now also features gold connectors for improved conductivity and better signal, as well as a braided exterior for durability.
