Nope, but I wouldn’t use such “materials” from China :D. Considering, I had experienced them, and it didn’t fly with me
Thanks!

Hi guys just would like to ask for someone who knows the pin lay out for Hifiman balanced cable. 4Pin XLR(amp end) to two(Left and Right) 2.5mm TRS connector(Headphone end).

For the 4Pin xlr amp end I already know:
PIN 1 L+
PIN 2 L-
PIN 3 R+
PIN 4 R-

What I am unsure of is the Left and Right TRS connections
I assume its:

Tip +
Ring None
Sleeve -

for each channel

Is this correct? Please advise

TIA

Hi again.

I just did my third cable with a trrs jack for android, following the standard pin wiring pattern.

Could anyone tell me why a mic would work but the inline remote buttons won't?

Tried two phones. Both detect the headset as just earphones with no headset but the mic works fine when tested with a recording app and in the phone diagnostics. I am at a loss and didn't find any useful info online. If it was a short then surely the mic wouldn't work at all?

this has probably been asked a bunch of times, but is there a list of suppliers for 2-pin 0.78mm connectors? Looks like the smartphone market is switching to no headphone jack, and id really like a 1-1.5 foot cable thats 2-pin for use with my radsone ES100. I've found a couple but they want like 20 bucks just for the connector, before even factoring in the cost of the rest of the cable (wire, termination).

Similarly, id really like to make a short cable for usage with my hifiman edition XX. I'm thinking i can make it sort of modular, terminate with a 2.5 and then use an extender thing to go from 2.5 TRRS to 3.5 for usage with desktop setup or for if i have something in my pocket.
