An Overview of the Different Types of 3.5mm Jacks
There are four types of 3.5mm jacks: stereo, mono, TRS (tip, ring, sleeve), and TRRS (tip, ring, ring sleeve). Stereo is the most common type and is used for headphones with two channels of sound. Mono is used for one-channel headsets such as those used for making phone calls. TRS is commonly used in audio equipment with two signal outputs such as microphones and keyboards. TRRS is often seen on modern mobile devices with an integrated microphone and headphone combo port.
What is the difference between TRS and TRRS?
The most common 3.5mm audio adapters are the TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) and the TRRS (tip-ring-ring-sleeve). The main difference between these two is that the TRRS adapter contains four contact points while the TRS adapter only contains three, allowing it to carry a stereo signal. In addition, the TRRS adapter is necessary on microphones or headsets with an inline mic/volume control as this requires the extra connection point.
