4 out of 5 eggs Real solid connector with minor drawbacks 07/05/2013

This review is from: C2G 40639 6.3mm (1/4in) Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Female Adapter

Pros: Rock-solid build quality, attractive and sturdy metal construction, tight fit on both sides, no (that I can tell) decrease in sound quality for 3-conductor TRS 3.5mm connections (the standard headphone connector)

Cons: It's a little longer than other similar adapters, 4-conductor TRRS 3.5mm connections (like those for iPhone headphones with ControlTalk) will connect but sound pretty terrible

Other Thoughts: The silver metal construction differs from the generally gold style of a lot of high quality audio equipment. This can be a pro or con depending on your sensibilities but it really makes no difference in sound quality. Also, the 3.5mm connection might almost be too tight in that it might scratch your plugs. But I've never had that happen, so I'm probably just being paranoid. Overall, I highly recommend this adapter unless you use headphones with 4-conductor connectors (hint: look at the number of black bands on the plug and add 1 to get the number of conductors)
