Pop-Port to TRS

As my adapters have gotten quite some attention lately, I am encouraged to keep on keep the world of adapters documented.

This mainly-plastic construction certainly was not produced in the current century. I guess it’s rather a kind of device splitting an audio signal, for instance recording a tape while listening to it on headphones. Please correct me if I’m wrong, as I really have no idea …

TRS (stereo) to dual-TRS (stereo stereo)

Airline Headphone Adapter

Here’s an example of a quite strange adapter standard: in airplanes, most of the times a dual-mono TRS output is provided for the inflight entertainment. This means you cannot use your own headphones (unless they’re mono). The airline makes money out of selling these adapters, or – even worse – their branded headphones with two […]
