TRRS (aka 4-Pole) 3.5mm Audio Jacks are becoming more and more common. Whether it's your smartphone's headset socket or your new laptop's audio-and-microphone combination jack, TRRS is here to stay. With this compact splitter, you can now connect regular stereo headset microphones straight in, with clearly labeled 'headphone' and 'microphone' sockets.
This adapter converts any headset which uses two 3.5mm male jacks into a single TRRS combination audio/microphone plug for use with a wide variety of phones, tablets, laptops and multimedia devices. Great for use with Skype apps, gaming with voice chat and other VOIP systems which use a 4-Pole 3.5mm input. Wired for the CTIA standard on the TRRS plug. There's plenty of room between the female sockets for just about any 3.5mm plug barrels to sit side by side!
- 5 Year Cable Chick Warranty
- 3.5mm TRRS to Stereo Audio/Mic Splitter Cable

My students bought two TRRS splitters from another vendor and they only seem to work with iPhones. Having done a little research it seems Apple and all other brands have a different config of the TRRS. Is possible to know if this brand would work with android devices?
"We have an adapter that allows you to change the wiring type of TRRS so that splitters like this can be compatible with non-Apple devices: http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/35mm-4-pole-trrs-standards-bi-directional-adapter-ctia-to-omtp.html. We also go into more depth about TRRS in our blog here: http://www.cablechick.com.au/blog/understanding-trrs-and-audio-jacks/"

I have an Apple iPod Nano and wish to plug in my standard 3.5 mm stereo speakers into the apple ear piece socket. Will this splitter work for this application?
"Regular stereo headphones and earbuds are designed to work in the iPod Nano without any splitter or adapter. This goes for most TRRS sockets in iPhones, iPads and Android Smartphones and Tablets. If you're having audio problems using regular headphones in your iPod Nano, it could indicate a problem with one or both devices, and would need further testing to identify the source of the issue."

Is this the right product if I want to stream/rip music from my computer or audio device with a stereo output to an iPad or an Android phone? Does this product provide a stereo input to the end device (iPad, Android phone)?
"Recording on a handset using the Microphone input will be limited to mono, as there is only a single channel for incoming audio. The easiest method would be to rip the audio to your PC, saving it in a format such as MP3, and then copying it to the handset as a file."

Could you use this to connect beyerdynamic mmx 300's to astro pro mix amp and Xbox one for audio and voice chat?.This seems solid/better quality. If not, could you recommend one?
"The MixAmp Pro ship with a "PC Headset Y-Adapter", which would be recommended for use with your headset, as this adapter may not have the same pinouts (Astro don't show wiring diagrams). Ours also swaps left and right channels, which is fine for Music but less desirable for gaming."

Will a mono microphone work ok with this adapter?
"Absolutely. The 4-Pole side only has a single contact for Mic, so you wouldn't gain anything with a stereo Mic config anyway. Mono is the intention."

Hi - love buying from you, bought a few bits and pieces over time. Bought a TRRS1210 to use with my ASUS N550J so that I could use a headset but it doesn't work. The audio comes through fine but the PC won't see the microphone and I understand from your notes here that I might have bought the wrong one. It's fine, because it works ok with my iPad but I do need one to work with my PC - which would you recommend?
"It would seem that you require a CTIA to OMPT adaptor to enable it to work with your PC. http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/35mm-4-pole-trrs-standards-bi-directional-adapter-ctia-to-omtp.html
However we cannot guarantee that this will fix the issue as we don't know how the pins are wired inside the ASUS's 3.5mm socket."

"Yes. This adapter is designed to enable regular PC microphone headsets to work with Laptops and Tablets with combined stereo/mic TRRS jacks."

Hi, will this devise work as a 3.5 stereo to 3.5 mono converter? TY
"If you're looking to convert a 3.5mm stereo signal to a 3.5mm mono signal you can use one of our Stereo to Mono 3.5mm Mini Jack Adapter.
Please note, this adapter does not mix stereo to mono, using the mono jack in a stereo output socket results in the left channel being sent to both left and right channels on the stereo output."

Hi, I'm looking for an adaptor that will allow me to use 2 sets of headphones on my laptop/i pad. Not needing a microphone port. Do you have something for this?
"If you type AVC-C5700 into the search field on the Cable Chick website, our 3.5mm Premium Stereo Audio Splitter Cable should suit your needs perfectly."

I have à HP Envy Laptop with an audio combo plug i/o.
I have microphone with a 3.5mm jack 3 poles.
Will this audio splitter will work with my microphone.
"Yes. Both ADT-539 and TRRS2500 would be suitable for your needs and will work with practically any PC headset using separate stereo and mic connectors."

Hi I am wanting to have my iPhone earphone/mic headset plugged in to make calls but also have someone else listen in to the calls (headphones only) for training purposes. Is this the right product?
"No. This product only separates the stereo and mic channels into their own regular stereo plugs. This does not duplicate the entire 4-pole TRRS connection. While this could additionally be combined with a stereo duplicating splitter on the headphone side, the resulting connections would not be compatible with the Apple headset directly."

My Hperx Cloud 1 splitter stopped working. Just wondering if this will work with it on both a Galaxy Note 3 for calls and Windows laptop?
"Yes. We've not met a PC headset which wasn't compatible with our TRRS splitters. This cable is the equivalent of the accessory which came with your HyperX Cloud I, and will allow the same functionality."
