Wireless In-Ears: Use The Right Cables

Personal Mixers are great tools for fixing the age-old problems caused by having monitor speakers on a stage. We frequently get questions about how to connect a Personal Mixer’s headphone output to a wireless in-ear transmitter system. This is easy to do, but you need to use the proper cables to get the job done.

The stereo output of an A360, A320, or A-16II Personal Mixer uses a 1/4-inch TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) connector. The TRS headphone connector has a left side output, a right side output, plus a common ground connection shared by both. To adapt this output for use with a wireless in-ear transmitter’s individual left/right line-level inputs you need to split the TRS output into separate signals. This is easily done with an insert cable, also sometimes referred to as a Y-cord.

A insert cable has a TRS connector that gets split into individual TS plug for left and right.

Simply plug the insert cable into the Personal Mixer’s stereo output and connect the separate left and right (tip and ring) plugs to the transmitter’s line-level inputs. You’re now ready to monitor using the wireless system.
