Issues with 2.5mm to 3.5mm Adapter

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

After I bought my Cingular 2125 (HTC 2125/Torndao/Faraday) I was on a mission to find a quality 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter so I could use my phone as a personal music player as well. After some searching I read in a few places that this Motorola Adapter was one of the best out there and that it's got the 4 pins for ground, left, right, and the microphone if I wanted to use a headset. Once I received my adapter in the mail, I went to go use it and if I push my 3.5mm headphone jack all the way into the adapter - I only get mono sound out of the right ear speaker. But if I unplug it about halfway, I get perfect stereo and it sounds great. Why does this happen? Is it because of the 4 pins and the fact that I am just using regular music headphones and not a headset with a microphone? There's only the standard ground, left and right pins on my headphones. Is it the way that the 3.5mm female jack is set up and because I am not using a headset with a microphone pin? It wouldn't be a problem if the 3.5mm jack would stay in place, but I wouldn't be able to put it into my pocket, let alone even touch it without the sound cutting out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Matthew

There was an issue with the Moto MPX200 Smartphone not being compatible with HTC (and other) headsets due to a slightly different pinouts. I believe Maplins sell compatible ones here in the UK, not sure if they post to other countries though :/

After posting this, I came across some other threads on the forums here and I guess I should have done some more research before I made my purchase. Luckily I got a deal on it, so I'm not going to worry about it.

Has anyone found an adapter out there that DOES work properly yet? There seemed to still be some confusion in the one post I found regarding this issue.

I'd appreciate some guidance in finding the right adapter.

Cheers,

Matthew
