Product Description

The Ebtech Hum X filters out unwanted voltage and current in the ground line that cause ground loop hum while simultaneously maintaining a solid, safe ground. You no longer have to run your audio signal through any type of tone-sucking filter. Simply place the Ebtech Hum X on the end of the power cord of the equipment that has a Ground Loop and plug the Hum X into the wall outlet. Ground Loop is gone -- safely -- and audio signal remains intact. The easiest, safest way to get rid of ground loop hum.

Features:

- Gets rid of ground related hum/buzz right at the source.
- Suitable for use on 120V 60Hz grounded USA style power outlets.
- Not a ground lift.
- Max current draw per Hum X = 6 Amp.
- Encased in durable thermoplastic.
- Handy LED shows unit is working.

"Motif XS hum and noise solution"
Sound: I bought two of these to solve a hum problem (Motif XS to Yamaha HS-80M speakers) and a horrible hum, whirring, crackling, popping noise problem (Toshiba Qosmio laptop to Yamaha HS-80M speakers via the Motif XS). Note the common element - the Motif XS which does not provide balanced line outputs. The Qosmio laptop is a power hog and has a three prong AC plug for its 5 lb power brick. Ground loop ran from the laptop through the firewire cable to the XS, then on to the HS-80M, and back through the ground connections (consequently it would go away if I could have unplugged the laptop from its power source, but the laptop only runs about 45 minutes on its built-in battery). I plugged the Motif into a HumX and this eliminated the problem between the Motif and the HS-80, but there remained a path from the laptop to the HS-80 through the Motif - that is why I needed to plug the laptop into one as well. There was no effect on the sound (in this approach the devices are not in any legitimate signal path). Ease of Use: Plug this into your surge suppressor and the device into this. Quality: This is a simple molded unit with a red LED that lights when power is present. Value: It solved a serious sound quality problem with an expensive synthesizer for a very modest price. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: It's a power adapter - out of sight. Overall: Unless this goes belly up, I will use it as long as I have the Motif.
Style of Music: Classical / Jazz

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Hum X "The Little Wonder!""
Sound: The only sound I hear now is the music coming from my bass guitar, no more hum, buzz or noise. Feature: Small, fits into an outlet, red indicator light. Ease of Use: No learning curve just plug in and get great sounds from your instrument. Quality: Seems to be made well, we'll see how long it lasts. Value: It is pricey, I shopped around and zZounds beat the price, it's cheaper than a noise gate which might not have solved my problem anyways, so I think it's worth it even at full price. Manufacturer Support: No, have no dealt with them. The Wow Factor: Not much appeal, just something you plug into the outlet, maybe along the same lines as a night light that doesn't light up! Overall: Just a little background info on what I'm using the HumX for: my setup is a multi fx connected to my PC via usb, with the l/mono out of themulti fx going to the input of a bass amp. The hum sound was so bad that I just gave up using the software that came with the multi fx. Enter the HumX, I plugged it into the outlet and connected my power strip to it, had everything set up with the amp plugged into the strip, turned the volume and gain up on the bass amp and guess what? No more humming noise, it's a beautiful thing! It was really amazing just to hear silence for a change! Now I can use my multi fx software again!
Style of Music: A little bit of everything, going through the Hal Leonard method books for guitar and bass.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
