Simplify Your Listening with Adapter Cables

Adapter cables add versatility to your audio system, allowing you to quickly change from one amplifier connection type to another. They also make incremental upgrades easier, allowing you to change your amplifier termination without buying a whole new headphone cable. Simply order an adapter that fits your new device and your existing cable.

We recommend the 4-Pin Mini XLR as a durable, low-profile connection option if you're starting from scratch. It is also compatibile with both balanced and single-ended amplifier connections.*

*Balanced headphone connections can be used with balanced or single-ended amplifier connectors, but this is not true of single-ended headphone connections. Combining a balanced amplifier connector with a single-ended headphone connector can short the circuit and damage the amplifier.
