TRS - Tip, Ring, Sleeve

TRS - Tip, Ring, Sleeve describes a stereo/dual-channel or balanced connection using a 1/4" (6.3mm) phone plug or smaller 3.5mm plugs for audio. TRS is widely used with headphones/headsets. Musicians connect instruments and backline hardware. Also common with vintage analogue studio gear (mixers, effects units, patch panels), TRS provides easy to use connections.
Unfortunately, minor quality sockets or wrongly wired connections often cause annoying sound problems.
