xone 92's have two headphone inputs. not sure about the rest of the xone range having not used them.

i guess on other mixes you would just use a splitter??

there is a lil plug thing, not expensive to buy, that you put into the headphone port on the mixer and it allows to headphones to thus go into it.

My mixer (Vestax PCV 275) also has two inputs - I'm guessing its quite common and is just on a brand by brand basis.

just push both of your headphones into the hole, it may be a tight squeeze, so use some WD-40 and really wedge them both in there

I've seen a lot of dj's just switch in and out
Plumps and Stantons both were doing that when I saw them play

Either that or use two mixers.

Alternative, a splitter - any decent electronics store will have them

I just use one of these. I'd assume your headphones have the 3.5mm plug with an adaptor, like Sennies or Technics etc

my vestax (pmc50) has a cue lineouts, so you can plug that into a $50 headphone amp and have 6 headphone sends for all i care.
on the spice cruise emmerson and murat were using some kind of special "DJ" headphone splitter, but i don't see how it could do anything more than any normal headphone splitter.

EDIT: I think it was a Q2 - it seems like you have your line ins to that (and can thus cue without hitting your mixer's cue button) - i don't really get it?
