Sometimes we may notice that the end of the 3.5mm jack may have one, 2 or 3 metal rings. Their main purpose is to separate electrical impulses received from the devices to transmit information.

The two stripes are able to separate 2 signals and transmit stereo. This makes your left and right headphones sound a bit different. Three stripes are commonly found in devices that support microphones.
