Best 4.4mm to 3.5mm adapter?

Hi all, looking to use my headphones that have a 4.4mm balanced cable with 3.5mm outputs, like a Dragonfly Cobalt. What's the best quality adapter on the market? 4.4 female to 3.5 male. Thanks!


I find that adapters, regardless of quality materials, always degrade sound quality. Are your headphone cables detachable? If so, consider getting different cables with 3.5 male tips.

Unfortunately Furutech doesn't make the adapter you're looking for (my go to for headphone connectors and adapters). Cayin makes one for $30, not sure how good it is. Moon Audio might be your friend in this case.

Geekria on amazon - runs around 10 bucks. I use the 4.5 mm to 2.5 mm balanced adapter and it has worked fine. Plus you have the option to return it if it doesn't work out for you.

Thanks to you both! I ended up getting a Moon Audio cable for $150. Will see how it performs. I thought about getting another headphone cable, but opted to save a little $$ as this is for occasional use where I just want to listen to my computer's audio through a Dragonfly Cobalt.
