Adaptable for any setup combining headphones and microphones
Buena Park, CA, July 2021 — Hosa is adding to its already extensive catalog of breakout and splitter cables with a TRRS breakout designed for headsets and microphones.
With an ever-increasing number of people working remotely, streaming, and gaming, single-connection headsets with built-in microphones are becoming more commonplace. Likewise, existing setups with separate mics and headphones are having to conform to single TRRS jacks on newer devices.
The Hosa YMM-107 Headset/Mic Breakout Cable splits a TRRS connection into separate TRS outputs, making it ideal for gaming headsets requiring a connection to computers using separate jacks for microphone and headphones. Simply plug your existing TRRS headset cable into the breakout and you will have separate male connectors for headset and microphone on the other end.
The Hosa YMM-108 flips the connector configuration with a TRRS plug and two TRS female connectors designed for microphone and headphones. This can be used to combine separate mic and headphone outputs into a single TRRS connection. When using a professional balanced microphone, simply add a Hosa XVM-100F series cable to complete the connection.
Both breakouts use the CTIA wiring standard for the TRRS jacks, making them compatible with most TRRS inputs. Each of the dual plugs is color-coded and identified as microphone and headphones.
“TRRS connections have been around for a while already, but with so many new headsets, TRRS-based equipment, and rise in remote work, the number of people needing an effective breakout to connect their legacy equipment has increased,” adds Jose Gonzalez, Hosa’s Director of Marketing & Product Development. “We’ve answered the many requests to bring in these solutions that perfectly complement our already vast array of splitters, breakouts, and adapters.”
The New Hosa Headset/Mic Breakout Cables are both available at an MSRP of $9.95 each.Hosa
