    make sure that the cable you are using from the mixer to the headphone amp is a TRS (tip/ring/sleeve).

    This means when you look at the metal thingie that sticks in the hole thingie, you should see two black rings on it instead of one. That separates the plug into 3 sections, one for right, one for left and one for ground.

    If you are using a standard instrument cable, then you only have two sections on the plug thus you will only hear one channel.
