Quarter-inch phone plugs and jacks are extremely robust compared to their dwarf relatives, and are a preferred connector for professional applications such as broadcasting and recording studios.  Quarter-inch to 3.5mm adapters are predominantly stereo.

Stereo. Many audiophile grade components use 1/4" interfaces. Little MP3 players and smartphones, etc., do not produce audiophile grade sound. There are a few headphones that still use 1/4" plugs. Admittedly, there are far fewer of them today than there were when I was in high school. But they're still used for high end audio equipment.
