is it possible to SAFELY plug in my head phones in to the speaker out on my VK212, as long as i match the impedence?

thanks!

not at all (safely)

Yeah...and the amp for that matter.

Well, in California, people carry around devices that control the minds of bears. So expect to see people walking their bears.

Also, don't be surprised if some robot hookers try to solicit sex to you on the streets.

Not really, I tried it with my tube amp today and although it hurt a little bit with the volume above half it sounded quite nice. Worth a try, tell us what you think!!

Do not listen to this.
A speaker output is far higher than the level a set of headphones can handle safely. You will almost definitely destroy the headphones, and the impedance of the headphones is not in the range of the output of a tube amp, so you will be putting a lot of strain on the output transformer, and will probably damage it. Replacing that would cost almost as much as getting a new amp.

I doubt you could match impedance. Headphones are most of the time 32 ohm IIRC.


16 ohms I though... but the headphones will definitely not be able to handle the output from the amp anyway.

Yer.....not gna lie I just wanted a cheap laugh.... But more seriously would it work if you had a preamp output?

Sounds like it would be a fry fest.

But I have seen 16.
I've taken a lot of them apart.

Depends who you take it to. My transformer operation cost me about $100, parts and labor included, and that's astounding given the tariffs Jamaica has on electronics parts.
