1/4-Inch TRS Phone and XLR Inputs and Outputs on 2-Channels
2-ChannelHum/Noise Eliminator Box
with XLR Jacks
Almost all 60Hz AC hum is caused by ground loops that act like radio antennae (loop antenna). The Hum Eliminator completely eliminates this by breaking the ground loop, making it impossible for the signal lines to pick up the AC hum and noise in the first place. Unbalanced lines are more susceptible to picking up electrical noise and RF interference than balanced lines - the longer the unbalanced cable, the greater the chance of a problem. Using this device to connect two pieces of equipment is one of the most cost-effective ways to convert between unbalanced signals and true balanced signals. Automatically Translates Signal Voltages to Match Difference in Ground Potentials.

I have driven myself crazy trying to eliminate static noise from my new home studio setup. My problem was with an M-Audio M-Track 2X2M hooked up to an iMac. My monitors (JBL 305s) had very noticeable static that corresponded with moving the mouse, when the hard drive would operate, etc. I tried everything, including all new cables (started with unbalanced, then moved to balanced, and there was zero difference). I was about ready to call it quits until I saw this product in some online forums. I knew it would work for eliminating hum (guitar inputs, etc), but I was skeptical about my static noise. Well, upon inserting this unit into my equation, I thought maybe I hadn't turned on my monitors. Oh but they were on, and outputting exactly NO sound as they should when there is no music being played! The monitors now work great with my setup, and I really feel like I'm back in business. This product ended a very frustrating month of experimenting and failing. I would have paid 5 times what I did for the product, seriously. I detect no degradation of the crispness of sound quality (I was afraid it might soften the sounds, but nope, sounds perfect).
In summary, this is an amazing device that saved my sanity - highly recommended!
* Bad equipment
* RFI / EMI (radio frequency or electromagnetic interference)
* Bad line power
* Guitar-cord related ground loop (most common in guitar / microphone / amp situations)
This item works dandy if you are experiencing a ground loop problem. There is a very easy way to test for this too: if you have a guitar amplifier that has unwanted hum / noise, simply unplug the guitar cord. If you're having a cord-related ground loop problem, the hum will vanish. Plug the cord back in, hum returns.
That problem is exactly what this is for. Plug you guitar or microphone cord into the "in" jack, plug another into the "out" jack and to your amplifier, and this cleans it up well. An inexpensive and efficient solution.
If your noise problem is caused by one of the other factors, that's not what this is designed to fix. You may need the more expensive Hum X or similar device to handle a socket-based ground loop or noise problem, or if it's a problem with electrical noise or RMI/EMI problems, you may need a pricey power conditioner.
3-prong amplifiers: A way to test for socket-based ground loop issues is to use a prong adapter-- one of those orange or gray cheap things that converts a 3 prong plug into a 2 prong. This is for TESTING only as continued us can cause problems (there's a reason your amp has 3 prongs). Plug the amp into the adapter, plug the adapter into your electric socket, and if the hum vanishes a device like the Hum X will fix the problem. Avoid the temptation to just keep using the cheap prong adapter. It removes the grounding of the amp, and is a good way to burn out an amp or even cause a line fire. Of course if your amp only has 2 prongs in the first place, this doesn't apply at all.
Bottom line: if the hum is caused by issues between the guitar and amplifier-- such is very easy to check by simply removing the guitar cord-- and this product will fix that. Note that if you have a serious issue with your guitar electronics or pickups, that may require repairing. But in my case this relatively inexpensive solution nearly zeroed my hum issues. Very pleased that it worked for me. If it doesn't work for you-- at least you'll have nice clean guitar line flow and you can look for other causes for hum.
I was having trouble connecting my Zoom G5n to my guitar amplifier. Because the Zoom was also connected to my PC via a USB cable, the PC was grounding the Zoom via the shield of the USB. My amp is also grounded, so when I connected the Zoom to my amp I was getting an annoying hum whether I went into the front input or the effects return. This was a combination of 120Hz mains hum and some high frequency whistling sounds presumably caused by signals on the USB bus getting coupled into my guitar signal chain.
Using this box has completely killed the hum. I've not noticed any degradation in the signal quality.
I have read the pros / cons of active / passive hum elimination, and I was a little concerned I would lose tone with this, since it's passive, but I didn't. I tried the Behringer DI400P, but it didn't eliminate the noise, I'm guessing because I was using the 1/4" for in *and* out, and they are set up in parallel. The Pyle works in this configuration, whereas the Behringer didn't. What sealed the deal for me is that I could go in on 1/4" and out on XLR, and it worked, without hum. And, it's 2-channel. So, I'm very happy with this.
Just keep in mind that you need to understand what is causing your noise before you try to figure out what will solve it. Pickup noise will go away if you turn the volume down, but ground loop noise (at least in my case) was there regardless of the volume. This device fixed that noise issue.
