       Zoom and other video conference programs put an emphasis on video quality and call stability.   The better the video quality and stability - the more delay is built into one's internet connection.

       If you have an ipad you need only two items:  




       







​       1. WIRED, open-ear, non-noise cancelling headphones to hear your distant partner(s), and your own voice at the same time.  In a pinch free airline buds (wired) may also work. 

       2.  An Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter. 


       Turning off wifi and connecting your router with an ethernet cable and for most MACS an ethernet adapter  will quicken your connection.  Mac's are significantly easier to set up with soundjack.eu. Four-core  minimum.  

         

        Employing free soundjack.eu software:  to select for each connection the optimum ratio of quality and stability / versus "in the same room feel."  

 

     

​​PC users will need, in addition to the headphones, and ethernet cable above, an audio interface and xlr mic:
