    Headset cable (1xP3) -> Splitter cable (2xP2) -> Headphone cable on DAC -> Microphone cable on PC -> Noise from motherboard (Help!)

    SOLVED! AnalogSteph from another forum gave the solution: "By connecting headphone and mic ground at the headphone, you are completing a ground loop. In your case, that happens to be particularly large, and you have the entire voltage drop over USB power return included. I would suggest keeping...

    Mystery Headphone Adaptor or Amp Device (by Moth)?

    I inherited this piece. As you can see in the pics, it seems to be designed to plug into speaker-level banana jacks, and then give headphone output. But look at those tiny resistors! Can anyone out there tell what this is definitely for? Limits of use? Also, that looks like the old Moth logo...

    Is it possible to convert 4.4MM TRRS (Balanced, for Sony DAPs) to normal 3.5mm with an adapter?

    I like to use my IEMs sometimes with different sources other than the Sony Dap. Swapping the cables all of the time is a lot of work and probably can't be good for the good connections on the IEMs. Is there any easy way to get a simple adapter that could convert it to 3.5mm? Thanks

    Question about Lightning to 3.5mm adapters

    Since Lightning is a digital out, it stands to reason that the little dongle Apple sells contains some kind of DAC. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) And from my casual listening it's pretty mediocre, at least when you compare new Apple Lightning buds vs old buds with the Apple dongle. At least...

    Does a 2.4ghz (non bluetooth) low latency wireless headphone adapter exist?

    I'd like a decent wireless headset that has low/no latency for gaming use. Investigating the wireless "gaming headset" options available it seems that none of them are very good. The lack of good wireless gaming headsets got me thinking of using a wireless adapter with a decent pair of cans...

    TRRS vs TRRRS 4.4 balanced?

    Hi, I'm a little perplexed about the 4.4mm TRRS vs TRRRS. I've ordered a custom cable where the one and only option for 4.4mm was with TRRRS jack. I ask for a 4.4 balanced connector but I can't understand if really is. In a site I read TRRRS is balanced and TRRS is single way, on another site...
