XLR to 1/4″ TRS Connector (wired for balanced mono)

The usual way to connect a 3-pin XLR to a 1/4″ TRS (AKA stereo jack plug) is to use the following pin allocation:

  • XLR pin 1 to 1/4″ plug sleeve
  • XLR pin 2 to 1/4″ plug tip
  • XLR pin 3 to 1/4″ plug ring

XLR to 1.4-inch stereo jack plug

This wiring configuration gives you a balanced mono audio cable.
