Is there any issue with the sound quality after using these? I bought another brand and immediately the freq response and stereo separation was off.

No sound issue. Sounds fantastic.

It looks like they've finally updated the design, screwing on the connectors onto the metal body. The ones I purchased through Amazon are attached via glue, which I've had to return/replace because the connector came unglued. All in all, a very aesthetically pleasing adapter which now looks to be even more robust than the original design. Well worth it!

You can literally buy a pack of these on amazon for like $4.99. Been using them for a decade for my classes. What a rip off

@micahjrose , @BrakeRewis is probably referring to some old adapter and not the Pentaconn to 3.5/2.5mm adapter, especially not DDHifi's iteration. There's no possible way he has used this adapter for decades - Pentaconn connectors haven't been out for that long.

Drop, Is it possible to purchase a pair at the same time thereby saving shipping cost?

"the last thing you want is excess weight or bulk." >makes them out of steel with giant unnecessary collars, instead of light inline cable giving no extra strain to the device

It is 10g and has the minimum size of 4.4mm socket. Maybe strain will be an issue but it is indeed the most compact and light 4.4mm adapter I've seen.

That design is god-awful. 2.5mm plugs should not have a collar, as the 2.5mm is super frail. The coupling to the player should be as broad as possible. The bulk of the 4.4mm jack and t-shape also produces more opportunity for leverage to break the 2.5mm plug. They should pull this design.

That is patently false. PlusSound, Double Helix, Effect Audio, Satin Audio, PWAudio, Oyaide (also make a collared connector), Dita, RHA, Fidue (also have some collared), ... I could go on don't have collars. It is primarily budget cables that have a collar. "Budget" includes FiiO and Dunu cables.

The bigger question is, if the headphone cable terminates as a 3.5mm trs (2 rings meaning single ended), and you are connecting 4.4mm which is a 4 ring trrs to balance....then, do i need the adapter to be a male 4.4mm trrs to a 3.5mm trs 2 ring or does the female side of the adapter is going to be a 3.5mm trrs 4 ring? Seems to me that one would need a 4.mm male trrs to a 3.5mm trs female so you have the proper connection but that leaves the magical question......will this be considered semi balanced but will work fine or will it cause issues? Either way, no one really knows the exact answer and no seller usually states what is on the female side of the adapter 3.5mm trs or a 3.5mm trrs. And i am not referring to a 4 ring trrs for a mic for cellphone use. Im referring to be used as a balanced connection between the headphone n the dap. None of my adapters work efficiently, they cause ups n downs while the music plays because something is wrong in the loop. Tony

You need a balanced cable for your headphone (if that is possible), not an adapter designed to short out your equipment. Otherwise just use the single ended output.

I have seen products on Ali that are sold as female SE to male BAL adapters. Great! It will work somehow for a while but since you short the dual amps you will eventually hear a poff and everything is gone.

I got them at aliexpress. Confirm those adapters are great. Build quality is superb, a hammer like design looks cool and no changes on soundwise. If you're looking for adapters something special but don't wanna spend 100+. Those are right for you.

I don’t understand the need for this. I mean what headphones have a 4.4mm connector

I'm not saying people can't want this, but retermination of a cable won't cost much more and is a better solution than this 4.4mm to 2.5mm adapter, albeit potentially slower (though Drop is not known for speedy delivery). As I've said before 2.5mm is frail, so having the plug body not press directly against the source is bad design. The collar prevents the adapter from having the broadest possible base. I'll say one more time: the need for 4.4mm to 2.5mm is rare, and if you have this need, this is not the best solution. Best solution is reterminate your cable, 2nd best is an adapter that is not of the direct connect variety (that is, wire between male and female connectors). If ddHifi wants to make a 4.4mm to 2.5mm adapter, they should ditch the collar on the 2.5mm plug and give a broader base. I also have it on good authority from a cable manufacturer that right angle connections break more, because they rotate and leverage breaks the connector.

Does 4.4 mm mean a 1/4 inch plug? If so, do they make a 3.5mm (female) plug to 1/4 inch (male) version?

4.4mm is the new Sony standard for a balanced connection. It's made to replace 2.5mm balanced connections which are much more fragile in comparison. Look up 4.4 Pentaconn or Sony Pentaconn on google. It is becoming very common in new DAPs: Hiby R6/R6 Pro, FiiO M11/M11 Pro, FiiO M15, iBasso DX160, Shanling M6/M6 Pro, etc. It is also beginning to show up in some desktop amplifiers.

Actually the 4.4 pentaconn is not a SONY standard. They just adopted it, like many other DAP/audio companies. It was created by Nippon DICS and is a fixed 4.4mm 5pole (penta of its name) TRRRS jack.
