2.5mm to 3.5mm Headphone Adapter Question

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

First off - I have the Cingular 2125, which is the same thing as an HTC Faraday - correct? Which is very similar SP3i - correct? Anyways, I have been looking all over for a decent priced adapter so I can use regular stereo headphones to listen to music on my Cingular 2125.

WILL THIS ADAPTER FOR A SP3i WORK WITH MY CINGULAR 2125?

I'd appreciate any help anyone will give me.

Cheers,

Matthew

Not sure but if you have a local electronics store such as Maplin then you could probs get one from there? Or perhaps on ebay... always guys sellin them for cheap !

Yes it will.

All smartphones to date have 2.5mm sockets so it will work!

Okay, I just want to be a pain and reiterate. If I buy this adapter, it will bypass the microphone option on the 2.5mm jack and allow me to use my regular 3.5mm stereo headphones with no microphone so I can use my phone as a personal MP3 player. If I want to take a call, I need to unplug it and talk to the person on the phone? THAT IS WHAT I WANT.

Also, I've tried local Cingular and Radio Shack stores and they seem to have no idea what I am talking about - how nice is that? Don't have any Maplin stores around here.

Thanks again for everyone's help.

Cheers,

Matthew

Yes this is what will happen.

If you forget too unplug your adapter however your phone will think it is in headset mode and play sound through the headphones but no microphone input will be detected.

I use an adapter so I have first hand experience mate ;)

Thanks, a lot, Sam. I appreciate your input. What kind of adapter do you use? Do you use the adapter just for listening to music or do you have a headset with a microphone? I think the main reason I bought this phone besides time management and organization is for playing music. Now I don't need a PDA, iPod and cell phone in my pocket. I've got it all.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Cheers,

Matthew

Hey sorry for such a late reply I havent been using the forums that much recently!

I bought the adapter as a backup because I mainly use my Anycom wireless stereo bluetooth headphones but I tend to use the adaptor with some wiredheadphones when I dont want to take my wireless ones where they might get stolen.

I use a music adaptor that lets me plug my headphones in as my Anycom's double up as a headset
