Hi,

have any of you guys found any decent replacement headphones for the SPL or better yet a 3,5mm adapter that goes into the utterly stupid usb-connector?

...can't wait for WM6 ;)

Had to do my own. not very complicated.

cut the original headphones.

solder a 3.5 jack from Maplin on it.

easy. works well. cheap.

only problem: the phone switches to headset by measuring low impedance of headphones. so it works with my headphones, but doesn't if I put a cable to my hifi...

I haven't found any in the UK yet, although ebay lists a couple if you don't mind paying to ship them from the US. Here's one for about a fiver all in:

I have a V3 headphone and it doesn't work for i.mate SPL . So don't buy nothing.

Not being able to use proper headphones with it is a real pain. I bought this phone with the intention of using it as an mp3 player - but the phones that come with it (and so far, it seems, the only ones that are going to work) are utter rubbish.

Darn! I think I'm going to end up sticking with my trusty SPV C500...

here you are:

RED wire goes to copper side of the connector

GREEN goes to steel side of the connector

Both ~grounds go o middle (underside of the connector)

Yes, I am a micro-electronics engineer, but it is so easy, just soldering skills.

Have fun

Great thank you, but I have another idea, because I don't want to destroy my original headphones.

I want to buy the motorola miniusb/jack 3.5 adaptor like this one:

or this one + jack

than I want to open the miniusb connector and cut & sold skills, but I dont know the SPL connectors.

Can you tell me something about this project?

shame, I had bought connectors for motorola AND HPC something, but trashed them as they were useless.

one thing I can tell is official motoroal usb to phone cable charges the SPL fine. I'm doing this right now with a colleague's cable

yes, it is a valid solution.

just have to find which wire connects to which pin.

I could try to find out. what would be really cool, would be to make a connector that charges and allows headphones at the same time. but I doubt it is possible. (5pins: 1 common, maybe 2, 2headphones (left and right), 1 microphone)

I think my solution fits my needs better, I as I can make use of the microphone for calls too, rather than just listen to music.

If I had to do it without cutting my original headphones, I'd rather start from scratch. you may need to get thermoshrink sleeve to make it look ok-ish. the motorola connector doesn't have much lenght, it may make the process uneasy, + if you badword up ....
