TRS (stereo) to Dual-DIN (5-pin female)

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 …

    That’s right; however I think that this adapter was designed for semi-professional usage in the late 70s during the transition from DIN to the modern connectors, probably for connecting multiple devices to the output of another (For example, multiple amps to the output of a tape recorder. ¼” jacks were quite common as outputs back then.)

    But this adapter was in no case ever designed for DMX or MIDI, it’s older than both of these standards.

    Din is used in sync and midi and in DMX lighting sometimes . This a data port not audio

    This adapter is a TRS to DIN splitter, no question.
    But there never existed Headphones with DIN Plugs, there were only those wich were called ‘Würfelstecker
