3.5mm Stereo Plug to 3.5mm Stereo Plug Adapter: Why?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Can anyone—from Canada or anywhere else—tell me why would you need to use this 3.5mm stereo plug to 3.5mm stereo plug adapter? Joel Johnson has a possible explanation:

Yeah, I can think of a couple of weird scenarios (need to trick a jack that checks for stereo into accepting a mono plug), but nothing typical.

Seems like a very rare occurrence indeed. Other than that, any ideas before I file this under "Absurdly Stupid Adapters"? [Thanks Karl!]
