Recommended adapter for 2.5mm to 3.5mm

Recommended Posts

Annoying!  I have a nice Alo Audio Litz cable to replace the now broken (and annoyingly stiff) original cable on my Shure 535 IEM’s.  I pulled it out of its nice box and it’s got a tiny 2.5mm balances male connector.  


What are these used for anyway??


So given it’s a nice cable, can anyone recommend an adapter?  Can I even use one?


I need a standard 3.5mm male plug to go into iPhone/pad/pod.

Ideally don’t want to degrade the sound of a nice cable.  Also needs to be reasonably tough for daily bike use....


Am I best selling it and getting the correct one?

Fiio make one. I have the 4.4mm to 2.5mm version, its nicely built.


The 2.5mm balance is a common balanced out for DAPs. Balanced out generally gives a bunch more power.

Cheers.  At least I know not to stuff up again!  I’ll have a look, else maybe sell up and try again....!
