TRS vs. TRRS Explained - What's the Difference?

When deciding between a TRS and TRRS audio connector, it's important to know the difference in order to choose the right one for your device. This guide will explain exactly what each connector does and how they differ, so that you can decide which is best suited to your needs.

The main difference between TRS and TRRS audio connectors is their pin count. A TRS connector (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) has three conductors, allowing you to receive or send stereo audio signals. It is the most common type of connector and is used in headphone jacks and guitar inputs. TRRS (Tip-Ring-Ring-Sleeve) connectors, on the other hand, have four conductors which allow for both a stereo input and output, such as microphones with a built-in headphone jack.
