Product Description
A common request among members of the Audiophile Community, this 4-pin XLR-to-2.5mm TRRS adapter is the easiest way to connect 2.5mm balanced cables to the balanced outputs on some of your favorite Massdrop amplifiers. It works with the Massdrop x MEE audio 2-pin balanced cable set and all other balanced cables currently sold on Massdrop, and makes a great complement to the Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Liquid Carbon X amp and the Massdrop x THX AAA™ linear amp ...

We are excited to finally offer the adapter we have been hinting about. Several observant individuals have noticed the adapter used in photos of previous Drops and have asked questions.  Wait no longer!

Now you can get the most out of any IEM or headphone cable terminated with a 2.5mm TRRS connector. This adapter helps you use the balanced output from our two balanced amps: Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Liquid Carbon X and Massdrop x THX AAA 789. The Cavalli Liquid Carbon X amp was originally designed as a balanced IEM amp by Alex Cavalli.  The balanced topology allowed Alex to use very low noise specific parts in the design and the low gain has been set for IEM use. The THX AAA 789 amp low gain setting was also specifically designed to be able to drive very sensitive IEMs with an inaudible noise floor.    BALANCED DRIVE Improvements in bass definition, overall control of the drivers, and a lower noise floor overall are some of the potential benefits of a balanced system.   HOW DO YOU USE IT? Use this adapter with the balanced 2.5mm TRRS cables that we have been offering as an additional option with the Massdrop x Noble X IEM, the Massdrop x Noble Kaiser 10 IEM, and the Massdrop Plus IEMs.

The adapter also works with our new Massdrop x MEE audio 2-pin Balanced Cable and Adapter set. The Balanced Cable and adapter set can be purchased here and used with most 2-pin connector IEMs: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-mee-audio-2-pin-balanced-cable-set

READY TO GO We hope to provide an easy and affordable way for anyone interested in building a balanced listening system. For many, this is the ultimate way to listen to your IEMs or headphones that can use a balanced cable. The adapter is entering directly into our Massdrop Made store with immediate inventory to ship within one business day!

It actually turned out to be junk with short circuits inside and I had to get my money back. I did find the link to the ones Massdrop is renaming as their own. I'm thinking of getting one from there and then I can post a link.

Did anyone else instinctively wince in pain when seeing the picture in the overview of the MD+ plugged into the THX 789 on 2nd gain and at 12 o'clock on the volume pot? Good way to blow out your ears! :D

I have one set of in ear headphones from 1More, the 4 driver version, that have a cable that is balanced and the terminator is a 3.5mm plug like most of my other headphones. I wasn't aware that 2.5mm was standard now... I'm not seeing it... I needed the 3.5mm version found a very good one here, they also make 4.4mm and 2.5mm versions. About the same price:

I have that cable like that but it goes from 4 pin XLR balanced to SE 3.5 mm and it doesn't work on my 789. I guess the way it's wired triggers a safety in the internals and the red led turns on and the amp shuts off. It works fine on my other tube amp tho.

I am guessing that Massdrop \ Drop is working on a 4-Pin XLR-to-4.4mm. Am I right? I have two devices with 4.4 and none with 2.5, meaning there is a market outthere for it.

Is this at all related to the adapter made by Venture Electronics? Looks identical except branding to be honest. And they even have it in 4.4 and balanced 3.5 variations (although this one isn't exactly common) https://www.veclan.com/engappliance_sel_one?eng_ApplianceVo.eac_id=36
