Okay, that's interesting. I didn't know that term, but it makes perfect sense, considering the other cables that have two RCA plugs on each end, one for each jack. Pam.

'Single point stereo,' is a handy phrase used to describe such sockets.

Oh yes, in the devices they have now, when you order one, you should order
3.5mm stereo, because most of the jacks are now stereo, even if they might
be configured to mono, in some cases. Pam.

Oh yes. Patch cords were what they were called back with the cassette
recorders.

Bye for now,

Hi there Guys!
Not certain of just what they might be called now, but when I was a teenager
I believe we called them 'patch cords'. The plugs were known as, the
standard headphone, the miniplug and the sub-miniplug. They also came in to
types, sterrio and monos. Hope I spelled everything correctly? Thanks and
Have A Great Day! de Jim.

Hi,

Yep. That’s my question. What's a cord with a 3.5-inch jack plug at each
end, called? (Someone who apparently doesn’t have one, wants one.) Thanks.
