# Convert from line level to mic level, without worsening the sound quality

I have an audio signal coming out from an iPhone which I would like to record in iPad using its mic input.

I have tried this with simple resistor divider (and TRS-TRRS connectors), but it seems to worsen the sound quality.

How can I do this without worsening the sound quality ? Are there any off the shelf components I could use to achieve this ?

I came across this adaptor, but it says 50dB loss, I guess my sound quality would drop, which is not great for my application.

• 50dB loss refers to a decrease in signal amplitude .... it does not refer to signal distortion – jsotola Sep 27 '18 at 1:34
• "but it seems to worsen the sound quality.", where is your proof to back that up? - "I guess my sound quality would drop", that's a non-logical assumption you've made, unless you... again, have proof, or no proof. – Harry Svensson Sep 27 '18 at 2:59
