Default Head phones

Hi It has been some time since I have used my Protools. I have only used it to record myself inthe past. I will be helping a friend do a recording. I have an Mbox the older one...
My Question is there a way to have more than one set of head phones. In other words when he is laying down a track Can we have another set so I can monitor.
Thansk for you help.
One more thing witht he new Mac Operating System do you recomend upgrading or will that screw up My Pro Toools.
Thanks Mike

While I'm not sure if there is a way to do it without buying anything, my answer would be buy a headphone amp. If you are going to be recording more then one person ever, these things come in handy. With most that I have encountered, there have been 4 or 6 outputs. You can get a decent one for like $100 bucks, even cheaper if you can find a used one on ebay.

ART makes a little headphone amp for about $40 that would work. If it is just the 2 of you, get a headphone "Y" cable and use 2 sets of the same model phones(so you both htear the same tone and volume).

I got a little adapter from Radio shack that allowed two sets of headphones to plug into a single jack and both sets of headphones came back in stereo. I only mention this because not so long ago if you used an adapter similar to this one you got two sets of headphones but in mono. The adapter wasn't that much, somewhere around $10. As the above post suggests, two sets of the same headphones is really helpful or you could have big volume differences between each set
