See, that's what I'm talking about and why it isn't safe, in my previous post I meant to say that 3.5mm TRS to 2.5mm TRRS is completely fine not the other way around. Yes, those adapters may "work", but over time it could very well end up damaging your device, decrease it's life span, overheat it, and cause reduction in battery life while in use.So long as the lower pin count is what plugs into the amp, the conversion is safe... if wired correctly.
It's when you try and go balanced to single-ended after the amp the problem occurs. Because you are shorting two lines together.
