Greetings, first time poster.

I thought I had a simple solution to the lack of a headphone connection in my Sonos setup. And I was not interested in spending money on a Connect if I didn't need to.

Why not, I thought, have an optical audio switch in line before the signal goes to the Playbase?So the audio connection would be from TV into the switch, and the switch would have two optical audio outs. One would feed the Playbase, and the other could go to my AV receiver (which is no longer the main source of output now that I have my surround setup)(a Playbase, a pair of Play:3's and a Sub. The AV receiver is perfectly fine, just unused) With a switch in line, I could choose only the output I wanted.

My plan works great by manually unplugging from the Playbase, and then plugging into my AV receiver. I plug my headphones in to the AV unit, and I get my desired effect: headphone sound for me, and no output from the surround to wake up my wife. When I want to switch back to the surround, I unplug the optical audio cable from the AV unit and plug back into the Playbase.

Obviously, that's not a practical solution. Moving equipment around to get access, wear and tear on the end of the cable, etc. However, there doesn't seem to exist just an audio optical switch with 1 in and 2 out, or even a 1x3.

There's a ton of 3x1 switches (3 in, 1 out) and a ton of splitters. But splitting the signal means that boththe surround system and the AV receiver would be outputting sound, not what I want.

I am really surprised that something as simple as this doesn't exist, or at least seem to.

Anybody else ever attempt to do this?

Optical Gateron Switches Sound Test (Which One Is The Best)

2-Way Optical Toslink Switch OPSW02

2-Way Optical Switch
This 2-Way Optical Switch allows the connection of 2 digital audio sources to a single input on a device. Perfect for when your receiver or TV doesn't have enough optical inputs for all your devices! Easily switch between inputs with the included IR remote! The LED on the side of the switch will indicate which input is being used! This switch is as easy to use as it is handy!

- 2-Way Switch (2 Inputs to 1 Output)
- Supports various audio formats & sample rates (DTS, Dolby AC3, LPCM2, up to 192KHz)
- Powered by USB cable (included)
- Enables output distance of up to 40m
- Overload Protection prevents damage by excess voltage
- Supports signal retiming for perfectly synced audio
- Amplified signal means no loss of quality

Control With Ease!
The included IR remote makes it a breeze to change which source device is operating through the switch. This switch also includes an IR receiver on a short lead, so you can hide the unit away behind your AV equipment or in a cabinet, and still be able to control it with ease!

Extended Output
The built-in amplification also enables output distance of up to 40 metres from the output (dependent on your equipment and your cable). This can be very useful for creating a multi-room system.

USB Powered
Being an active/amplified unit, it requires a power source. We include a USB cable which you can simply plug into a USB port (eg: on a TV or gaming console) to provide the necessary power. Note that the device with the USB port sometimes needs to be switched on for this to work. Alternatively, use the USB cable (included) with a USB power adaptor (sold separately) to plug into a mains power outlet. Being a powered unit, this switch doesn't degrade the quality of your digital audio running through it.

More Features
The switch is compatible with various audio formats including DTS, Dolby AC3 and LPCM2. It features signal retiming for a perfectly synced audio track, as well as voltage overload protection to prevent damage from unreliable power sources.

Optical switch audio

Opposite to the digital optical audio splitter, a digital optical audio switch is the best solution to allows multiple source devices (e.g. TV, Xbox, PC) to be connected to the same soundbar or headphone via optical fiber cables so that you can use remote control or button to switch the source device freely. 

What’s the difference between the optical splitter and optical switch? 

  • Optical audio switch = 2 or more optical input ports, but only 1 optical output port. Only one source device can output sound through the adapter.
  • Optical audio splitter = Only 1 optical input port, but there are 2 or more optical output ports. All connected audio receivers (Amp, soundbar, headphone, etc.) can work at the same time.

SPDIF optical audio switch box supports plug-and-play, the only thing you need to do is to set the audio output method and audio format in your source devices. Because of the limitations of the optical itself, an optical switch can only support Dolby Digital (AC-3), DTS 5.1, and LPCM 2.0 audio. If you want 7.1CH Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos,  you must use HDMI 1.3 or above cables.

To choose the best Optical Switch from the many products on the market, we need to consider the following points.

  • Noise – We must ensure that the SPDIF switch stays quiet when we are not using it instead of having to cut off its power supply.
  • Switching Speed – Fast response and completion of the switch will not make us wait for too long, which are also the first factors to consider for various switchers.
  • Lag – It’s inevitable that an audio adapter will cause sound lag, but an excellent optical switcher at least guarantees that there is no noticeable lag.

Below are the best digital optical switches we selected after careful comparison and testing.

Tips: Please remove the protective cap on the tips of the optical cable, which is the most overlooked step!
