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 Read More

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!

Hi there! I did find a good one. The link you provide to Amazon looks like a nice one too. I got mine from here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32963167200.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.58284a9e6S7Eaw&algo_pvid=c2333076-f4fd-4b67-b7c5-2d78444966d9&algo_expid=c2333076-f4fd-4b67-b7c5-2d78444966d9-0&btsid=f20fc2d4-d7f8-4c16-b144-2aca9874d804&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_53 It plugs right into the amp so it is very convenient as I've been making most of my cables with 4.4mm ends now and it's like the amp has a built in 4.4mm connector because it's right there with no cable. Thanks for helping out with the link. You never know what you are going to get from these random sellers but someone else linked me to Aliexpress for this one and told me that theirs worked great. I can give it a +1 as well!

So, this will not work with Acoustic Research ER-10 earphones that come with 4.4 mm balanced cable, right? Can there be any adapter for this?

This is one of my best purchases for 2019 and one of the most costly; as it has opened up a new layer, to my enjoyment of my burgeoning IEM collection. The Balanced output option has really worked to the advantage of some of my IEMs; but this also means having to convert them to 2.5 mm, from their (usually) mediocre single ended, stock cables.

Anyone know why this adaptor does not work with a XLR 4 pin extension cable?

Has anyone received theirs from the May drop? When were these supposed to be delivered? I got a shipping notice in June and the tracking info still says that it is in my city since June, but nothing about being ready for delivery.

Got mine several weeks ago, May drop, and that's taking into account the horrible 2-3 week delivery time that FedEx ShortbusPost usually takes to deliver anything from MD to my location.

Beware International shipping to UK on this. Been given the complete run around with DHL customs charges, basically Drop DHL tracking says item went from USA to UK. But the local tracking reference shows originating in GERMANY POSTFACH 1020. Royal Mail want £12 in fees too. DHL won't help get to the bottom of this as no WAYBILL given on shipment, no card left by courier or anything. Nightmare.

It seems the same, Venture Electronics cares quite a lot about the build quality.
