    Audio cable for iPad® & smartphones (TRRS male to 1/8" TS female input & 1/8" TRS female output) - 1 Foot

    Record your voice while simultaneously listening through your headphones with this Audio cable for iPad® and smartphones from Monoprice!

    Typically with other cables you can only record your voice with an external microphone, or simply listen to your tunes with your headphones. This cable gives you the ability to record your voice or musical instrument(s) through your iPhone®, Android™, or other device, and simultaneously listen through your headphones. Once this cable is plugged in you are good to go! Record and listen with your favorite third party application (such as GarageBand®, AmpliTube®, etc.).

    The 4-conductor TRRS plug on this cable uses the CTIA standard configuration, which puts the microphone signal on the sleeve (versus being on the second ring in the OMTP standard). The CTIA standard has always been used by Apple and HTC, while older Samsung, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, and Wiko devices initially used the OMTP standard. However, the latest versions use the CTIA standard. This cable is therefore compatible with:

    • iPod touch® 3rd Generation and later versions
    • iPhone 3GS and later versions
    • iPad (all versions, including iPad mini)
    • Samsung Galaxy S® version 3 and later
    • Samsung Galaxy Note® version 2 and later
    • Any Android device using the CTIA standard TRRS connector with the microphone on the sleeve, as described above

    While the TRRS plug is wired to the CTIA standard, the TRS headphone jack and TS microphone jack use standard wiring. The microphone input is compatible with microphones equipped with either a TS or TRS connector, such as those used on PCs. A combination mic-headphone assembly, such as those normally used with smartphones, is not a compatible input device.

    Usage Notes:

    1. Plug the 3.5mm (1/8") TRRS plug into the headphone jack on your compatible smartphone or tablet.
    2. The smaller of the two 3.5mm (1/8") female jack bodies is the TRS stereo headphone output. Plug your standard earphones or headphones into this jack.
    3. The larger of the two 3.5mm (1/8") female jack bodies is the TS mono microphone input. Plug your standard PC style microphone into this jack.
    4. This cable only provides the electrical connections, allowing the physical use of the external microphone. To record the signals sent to the device you will need to have a software app, such as GarageBand for iOS®.
    5. If using GarageBand for iOS note that the app generally cancels the monitor output during recording. This can be modified in "Settings" under "Crosstalk Protection". Be sure to minimize the input volume first.

    iPhone/iPad TRRS to TS female input and TRS demale output

    • Grant,

    Pros: Pros: I haven't been able to use it and cannot accurately rate pros.

    Cons: Cons: The cable is too large to fit through the hole in the Monoprice iPhone case I previously purchased.

    I was looking for something that would allow me to plug my 1/8-inch-to-cassette output into my iPhone with Monoprice case, however the cable I received is too large to get through the hole in the case which is very narrow.

    Great solution

    • Kevin Y,

    Pros: Works as described and great customer service.

    Cons: Product arrived damaged. It worked but the sheathing was peeled back, could fail in the future.

    I have a iPhone multi cam recording kit. I need to be able to get sound from the FOH board. I ordered two of these cables from MonoPrice. When my package arrived one of the cables was damaged. Good thing I ordered two. I contacted them on their website to request a RMA. They just shipped me a new replacement part, and told me to keep the damaged one (the sheathing was peeled back.) The shipping was fact and I had the new one in two days. I love the customer service. The cable works great for me, clean sound from the FOH board and I can monitor the audio with my headphones.

    Pros: None so far...

    Cons: No one likes being ignored

    I've sent your tech support an email requesting help with a Monoprice product. So far, after two days, no reply. I'll respond to your request for product reviews when you respond to my inquiry about my problem.

    Hello George,

    Have you already been assisted regarding this issue? Please let me know so I can assist you directly as necessary. Thank you!

    I'd hate to be running a business like Monoprice and have people like me nit picking about a bunch of little crap. Fact is, Monoprice is not like other online businesses. They somehow didn't forget quality service or on-time delivery. Maybe when they get bigger, this will happen, but as big as they are so far, it hasn't happened. I keep recommending Monoprice and Monoprice keeps giving me reasons to do so. The economies of scale, that exist in online shopping, versus retail, are not just another way to boost Monoprice's profits. Monoprice is obviously passing those economies along to their customers.

    Mine was defective.

    • Justin in Austin,
    •  Austin, TX 
    • 12/12/2015 3:55:56 PM

    Pros: Headphones work, but they did before, so that doesn't really matter.

    Cons: Waiting for a $5 product for a week and it being defective when it arrives is pretty annoying.

    So, the price isn't too bad, but the shipping took a while and once it got here it didn't work. The headphones worked great, but the mic does not. I even adapted my mic from stereo to mono so it would work correctly, and tested the adapted configuration on my PC (successfully) when it continued to not work with my adapter. I tried it with several different devices (I tried it with my Galaxy S5, Dualshock 4 controller, and my Latitude E6400.)

    It just doesn't work, and after buying adapters for my adapters and trying things out and waiting for the shipping and testing and reading and testing some more, I'm fed up. Gonna get one on Amazon Prime. I'll have to wait some more, but at least it will only be a few days and not the week or so Monoprice had me wait.

    I'd recommend working on you QC a little more, Monoprice. I know it's a cheap item, and that you make much more money from not testing (especially considering it's cheap enough that most people wont return it), but I'm not doing this again.

    Useless for making phone calls

    • Cal920c,
    •  Thornhill, ON 
    • 9/8/2015 8:05:44 PM

    Pros: Basically an extension cable, at least it fits with an otterbox on my phone.

    Cons: Doesn't work, doesn't seem to allow my mic to work with my phone (Modmic 4.0 muted, and YES THE MUTE IS OFF)

    Bought 2 of these for use with my sisters G771J and my iPhone 5 (the original one), and it doesn't work with my iPhone. I tired to make calls, I tried to use voice memos, neither worked.

    Haven't had a chance with the G771 to try it with that.

    by Monoprice Administrator

    My apologies for the issues experienced with PID 601030. If I may ask, when connecting the Modmic, is it plugged into the cable's larger female jack? Do you happen to have headphones/earphones connected to the smaller jack when attempting to use this cable?

    I also wanted to mention that this cable will not work with the G771J as it is only designed to work in 3.5mm TRRS ports which are often found on smartphones and tablets. Computers typically have two separate 3.5mm TRS ports (one for headphones, one for a mic) rather than one 3.5mm TRRS port that accepts both. The exception for that would be most Macs. My apologies for the trouble and I hope this helps!

    Yes, I had audio coming out of the headphones (A pair of HD25-1 ii), but sound was not going through the mic on either cable.

    The G771 has a combo headphone/mic port.

    by Monoprice Administrator
    Got it, sorry for the confusion. I did not notice that the G771 only had one port on it. Is there any way that we can try the cables with a different headset that has a mic built into it (such as a PC headset)? What about with a different phone or the G771? Please let me know your results from there and I would be happy to assist you further. Thank you very much for your time and patience in troubleshooting with me.
