One of my biggest pet peeves when I travel is rude people. It seems to me that these kinds of people are turning up more and more, at home and abroad when I travel. The biggest culprits are the clueless people talking on FaceTime or watching movies without earbuds or headphones in public spaces. I just don’t get it. Do they not care that people five rows away can hear every word they say?
Often, the people causing trouble are couples that are watching videos together. They pump up the volume so that they can both hear the audio nice and loud. I understand their desire to enjoy something together, but come on. There has to be a better option, right? What can these people do instead?
One solution is the Belkin RockStar 5-Jack Multi Headphone Audio Splitter. This handy, compact device has five (count them, five) AUX ports for attaching headphones or auxiliary cables. It allows couples or families or any group of up to five people to watch the same movie without missing any of the audio—and most importantly, without disturbing anyone else. It’s great for planes, airports, public transit, and many more places that rude people tend to show up.
If you ask me, the Belkin RockStar 5-Jack Multi Headphone Audio Splitter is the perfect stocking stuffer since Amazon sells it for just $11.49. If they were $10 less, I would buy a hundred of them and throw them at rude travelers with a note on how to use them. In reality, all you do is plug in and voila.
