Question

Is there a transit delay device for headphones / speakers?

If not,
Someone needs to make a simple device which would be plugged into the RCA jack between a headphone (or other?) device and the RCA jack, which can store and delay transmission to the device for an adjustable time up to a minute or two. A use could be for listening to a sports game on the radio (through local commentators) while watching the delayed broadcast on TV. Call it "Game Day".

Re: audio delay

If you call a PC or laptop a simple device this seems to meet the requirements: http://www.fountainware.com/Products/AudioDelay/

'The Audio Delay program allows you to feed your radio's audio through your computer and introduce a variable delay of from 0.1 seconds to several minutes. This makes it easy to synchronize the radio audio and the Television video. ... [It] will work on any PC with modern sound card that has a Line Input for recording. The program also requires Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. It may work on earlier version of Windows, but it has not best tested on this operating systems."

Now it's up to you start a kickstarter project to make that even simpler device you prefer.
