Are there any 4pin XLR -> TRS adapters (balanced to unbalanced)?

post #1 of 8

I have some of my headphones wired for balanced. It'd be nice to just get an adapter for SE operation, instead of a whole new cable.

I see you can get adapter cables made, but it'd be nice just to avoid all those solder joints etc and just use a little adapter. I don't suppose anyone has seen such a thing?

edit:  I've seen some but forgot where... will look into it.  For sure it a 4 pin?

Yup - 4 pin...

There is no off shelf "cheater plug" solution afaik.

Even if there was there would most likely be solder joints and cheap wire in it anyway; machining solid pins isn't cheap.

 

Just get a small 6" adapter made buy someone competent with a soldering iron and a heat gun.

I'm curious... why is your connection a 4 pin when the 3 pin xlr is more common?

Because some people will actually use a 4-pin connection on the amp output instead of, or in addition to, dual 3-pin, believe it or not.

Ok... I see.  Now that was a stupid question deadhorse.gif
