What are the MAX II headphone jack electrical output characteristics? I am thinking about using the output signal in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi/Arduino/Adafruit etc.. Any information will be healpful, even if it is where to look elsewhere.

Thanks,
Robert

Is this the type of plug it uses?

TRS Headphone Jack

TRS headphone jack refers to a audio jack which is portioned into three parts - Tip, Ring and Sleeve. Headphone jacks with the construction of Tip, Ring and Sleeve commonly have 3.5mm diameter. TRS earphone plug are always found on standard headphones that support stereo sound but don't have a microphone. That is, TRS supports stereo sound but doesn't support microphone which make no phone calls with headphones.

On TRS audio jack, there are two colored insulating rings on the shaft, with the Ring in between. The Tip handles the left audio channel while the Ring handles the right channel. At the end of the plug, Sleeve functions as the Ground.

Suppose you could see the internal environment of a TRS headphone jack, you would find that there are signal circuits connected by different colored wires which serve as different functions. Usually the red wires handle the right audio channel while the blue wires are the left audio channel. Black, silver or gold wires are the ground wires.

The unbalanced TRS connector is wired as follows:

  • Tip: left channel audio signal wire
  • Ring: right channel audio signal wire
  • Sleeve: common return wire and ground
In this configuration, the sleeve wiring is split at the Y in the cable and connects to both drivers.

The TRS unbalanced stereo wiring scheme is used in 2.5mm, 3.5mm and 6.35mm headphones jacks/plugs and is common in professional headphones.

Note that another common wiring standard for TRS jacks/plugs is balanced mono though this is never really used in headphone design. The balanced mono TRS is typically used in professional audio patch bays and in studio monitor and loudspeaker hookups.
