recommend female TRS to Female XLR

Postby Wiz » Fri Aug 16, 2013 9:37 am

Heres the thing.

I run a multicore in my studio. Its a 16 X 4. I use the 4 to send back headphone mixes via my patchbay.

So I run a cable that is female XLR and needs to end up female TRS, so I can plug a set of headphones into it.

Over the years I have used many different types of cables, adapters and they all have one thing in common, they all end up broken and suffer from poor connection at the female TRS end of things.

I want to build the following

A small box that I can clip to the mic stand, the has a female XLR to female TRS connectors.

I want a really REALLY good TRS connection that can be mounted in a box.

Anyone know of one, I wont be replacing in a couple of months time?

thanks

Peter, what about the panel mount 1/4" Neutrik sockets; NJ3FP6C They are very solid and a whole lot less breakable than what you have probably been using. The only annoying thing about these, is they are locking, so you have to push the red tab to extract your headphone plug

Element 14 have them, part no: 212180, you might be able to find a cheaper source elsewhere.

... and then what about mounting it into a small diecast aluminium box and either have an xlr socket on the other side of the box or a couple of meters of mic cable back to your multicore box.

Just a thought

That is essentially what I do. I run xlrs everywhere in my studio and then have a little junction box that has an xlr on one side and a pair of trs on the other for the headphones. All female inline trs sockets suck.
You could always make up a few of these boxes that have xlr m and f and trs sockets all paralleled together so that you can easily gender change or connector change anything.
