    That would be the usual approach, so you can head DAW playback, etc.
    I will connect them to RME card, and this AKG K240MKII to mixer, I will use AKG for movies and some easy music, and Beyerdynamics for making music.

It seves no more then a monitor for plugging head phones in and since all audio interfaces have monitor ports on them anyway, its just an extra add on.

    OP could get the same resalts from plugging there headphones into the laptop

    I see your polices on how our singing should be judged has chanced since my last visit, more about judging the recording equipment rather then the teckneeks, still the same s@@t heads about though
    I'm having a difficult time deciphering what you're trying to say. Do you mean to say that headphone outputs on interfaces are pointless and that using the built-in one on the laptop works just as well? If that's what you're saying, you're wrong.

    One my interface I have one headphone socket, a main output and an additional monitoring output. The monitoring output goes to a headphone amp, and I have occasion from time to time to use four or more headphone ouptus.

    However, most of the time, it's just me doing the recording, and someone else doing the singing, and a second headphone output on the interface would be ideal for this.

    I used to use both the headphone outputs on my Saffire all the time. Found it pretty handy if you don't have a separate headphone amp and are recording someone else in a small room, since I could wear one set while setting up levels and during tracking and the person doing the playing had their own set to hear the click or other tracks. Not to mention having one more output device for testing how a mix transfers, since I don't own two sets of the same kind of headphones.

    I have a headphone amp now, but still use one of the interface headphone outputs to drive my mono speaker.

    You not using it doesn't make it a novelty, especially since using the computer's built in output while tracking is very much less than ideal.

    Your inability to see the value doesn't make it pointless.

    I am throwing out my moderator hat to call you a waste of oxygen.

    I do find the fact that your ridiculous comments are quite entertaining for a bit, but it is now becoming annoying.

    What is your goal here? Just to troll the site? Does it make you feel more viable as a person to waste other peoples time with your bullshit? Have you no social life and need to try to undermine others with utter crap?

    I wish you the best, but feel free to leave this site if you don't have anything productive, logical, or useful to others.

    And for **** sake learn some pronunciation and language skills. You come across as a 3rd grade student...

    We threw away our Behringers some time ago in favor of the Mackie mixers. Mackie has one of the best mic preamps available rivaling many expensive consoles. The build quality is superior and the price is incredibly affordable. Why would anyone choose Behringer when Mackie is only a few dollars more? As for the headphone output, most mixers buffer the headphone output to eliminate load interaction with the line outputs.

    Well, I note that I'm now getting riders with behringer products actually ON the list of things to have. Their 8200 has been getting extremely good reviews with the Midas designed preamps. Behringer prejudice is falling away rapidly, and now they're amazingly popular. I've lost count the number of really good PA systems that come through my venue driven with an X32.

    Does anyone actually have a headphone driver that impacts on the output? Surely they've been doing not properly for about twenty years or more now?

    I have two X32s and a Midas M32 and the Midas does indeed sound a little smoother, but I can happily swap between them with no issues worth speaking about.
