Probably the most Noddy, simple question asked this year, but I don’t know and need to know, so I’m up for the lambasting
Above is a picture of the 2 ends of my headphone cable. Both jack’s are 3.5mm.
If I plug the 3 ‘element (?)’ jack into the headphones and the 2 ‘element’ jack into the headphone amp all works perfectly. If, however, I reverse the cable, I only get output on the right hand side !
Why is this and is it usual ?
Also I need to order a longer cable, so what is the correct terminology for what I need to order ?
Thanks for your understanding and for helping the needy.
