Best Headphone Adapters in 2020



Headphone Splitter, Syncwire Nylon-Braided 3.5mm Extension Cable Audio Stereo Y Splitter (Hi-Fi Sound), 3.5mm Male to 2 Ports 3.5mm Female Headset Splitter for Apple, Samsung, Tablets & More (No Mic) Review:


This product feels high quality with the woven cable and metal end caps. It feels like it can take a lot of unintentional misuse and keep on working. It is very flexible and does its job as a headphone splitter well.

Do I Like it: Yes

Do I Recommend it: Yes

Are there any problems with it: Not that I am aware of

Whether I am listening to music with someone or in a public space watching youtube or Netflix these do exactly what they are meant to, and at an attractive price.
As with all of my reviews if anything goes wrong with the product I will come back and update my review, but until then you can know that I am still enjoying relatively frequent use without troubles.



Headset Adapter, MillSO 3.5mm Jack Headphone Splitter CTIA Headphone Adapter Mic and Audio Cable with Separate Microphone and Headphone Connector for Gaming Headset to PC - 8inch/20CM Black Review:


I bought this so that I could use my Apple headset with a Zoom H6 audio recorder. And it works with a few caveats. I noticed that some of the reviews indicated that it doesn't work with one headset or another, but I'm wondering if those people are aware that condenser microphones require power, be it from a battery compartment that is part of the microphone, or via phantom power or plug in power from the connected device.

In the case of the Apple headset, power normally comes from an iDevice via plug in power. In my case, the Zoom H6 can provide plug-in power. This would be a requirement with any cable or adapter. In any case, it works - I can hear sound from the Zoom via the headset and I can also hear my own voice from the headset mic.

It may be worth mentioning that this particular cable is a little bit shorter than ideal for the Zoom H6, since the headphone jack is near the bottom of the left side and the mic input is at the upper right, on the X/Y capsule. It reaches, but one has to either run the cable under the recorder, or over the top of it. I attached a photo so you can see what I mean. That's not really a knock against this adapter, unless one intends to use it for exactly the same purpose, and even then, it is workable.

As for quality, when the headset is the only thing connected to the H6, that audio quality is quite good. Much better than one might expect after hearing the same headset used with for a phone call from an iPhone. It is as good as some dedicated lav/lapel mics that I have. There is no audible hum, although Apple's mic does have some self-noise, again, similar to some sub $100 lavaliere mics. I believe that one could reasonably use a similar setup for any number of applications and that 99 percent of listeners would think it sounded great.

With that said, there is some cross-talk/bleed between the headset and the microphone. If I max out both the mic gain and the headphone volume on the Zoom H6, it actually causes feedback. Keeping in mind that there is a lot of gain going on when I do that. I can hear my own breath quite loudly, so the levels are way beyond anything "normal".

Other reviewers have stated that this adapter causes bleed-through with their headset, but I'm not sure that it's fair to blame the adapter because I have used this same headset with the Rode Rec app on my iPhone (and thus, no adapters), and it is possible to cause feedback with that setup as well. So I would conclude that most, if not all of the cross-talk/bleed-though/feedback with this particular headset happens within the headset itself. I would expect differing results with other headsets.

And then the shielding issue that some have mentioned. If I connect my digital piano to the H6 at the same time as the headset, I then hear some hum. It's not a lot of hum, but it's there. If I handle the TRRS jack on the adapter cable, it then hums much louder. It's not clear to me exactly what is taking place, but I can only assume that the piano connection exposes the recorder to the AC lines in some way, although, to be clear, there is zero hum when the adapter/headset combination is not connected. For example, if I connect the piano and my iPhone at the same time, that does not cause any hum at all. And other self-powered microphones plugged directly into the H6 also cause no hum.

I have a working theory that it has something to do with the CTIA standard itself, because contrary to good engineering practice, that standard puts the mic line on the shell of the connector, which by all logic, is where the shield should be. The only way that one could effectively shield a CTIA connectors would be to use a secondary shield around the entire connector body, which is something that I have not yet seen done. Interestingly, the competing OMTP standard does, in fact, make the shell ground, but Apple has traditionally gone out of their way to buck any and all industry standards, so it's not too surprising that they didn't adopt OMTP. One can only wonder why others followed.

If I'm right, then all CTIA-based microphones are going to be prone to hum, which would be no fault of this adapter. One could argue that MillSO could have come up with a way to provide shielding, but at the same time, it's not hard to imagine that they would just go with the standard, even though it may have a tragic flaw. Apple has since abandoned their own standard in favor of Lightning, yet another proprietary standard, and most recently, now that the world has purchased untold millions of dollar worth of Lightning adapters, they appear to be moving toward USB-C, which is bound to be the first time that Apple has ever adopted an existing industry standard. One might applaud if it were not for the investment in Lightning.

None of that speaks to the needs of any serious audio production work, but it certainly will muddy the waters for headphone and headset makers. And I have not offered a complete answer as to the quality of this adapter. All I can offer at this time is that I plan to try building my own. We have a cable shop here, so I am wondering if we can do a better job with using off-the-shelf components, but my initial searches for shielded TRRS jacks did not turn anything up. FWIW, I intend to use this adapter for a while and see if the hum is a problem in a real-world recording. I think it may be okay, and beyond that, I’m not sure that any other adapter would be any better. Most of the sellers on Amazon aren’t even willing to commit to the CTIA standard, let alone reveal any technical details like shielding, so while this adapter may be imperfect, it may also be as good as one can easily get.



CHARGEWORX Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter, MFi Certified Audio Connector for iPhone 11/PRO, X/XR/XS/XS Max, 8/8 Plus, 7/7 Plus, iPod, iPad Supports Music Control and Call Functions (White) Review:


I recently had to switch to an IPhone for work, and I was dreading it because of the ways in which Apple is a pain in the ass. One of those ways is the absence of a 3.5 mm audio out port in the bottom of the phone. This solves that problem nicely. I have a pair of One tripple driver in-ear headphones with volume controls and a mic for phone calls, and I was concerned that they wouldn’t work on my new iPhone XR, but they work perfectly with this adapter. The connection on both side is also nice and solid, and 3.5 mm plugs click in quite firmly.

So this adapter solved some problems. However, I do remain concerned that using the main port for headphones is going to put a lot of stress on it over time, going in and out of pockets, but that’s Apple’s fault for doing away with the 3.5 mm port, and not this adapter’s fault.



(2 Pack) PINEKEN Lightning to 3.5mm Headphones Jack aux Cable Adapter, Earphones Cable Compatible with iPhone11/11Pro/ Xs/XS Max/XR/X / 7/7 Plus /8/8 Plus iPad iPod (iOS 11,12) White Review:


 Hands down, this is my favorite fidget spinner I own. I have about 8 of these in the house between me and the kids and this one by Esoap is our favorite and is the one the kids battle over to see who gets to take it to school or to play with it. It is much heavier and thicker than all of the other spinners I have used and that we own but to me that is a good thing. It's really comfortable to the touch with the material they used to make this spinner. The finger rests are contoured perfectly and the spinner is well balanced. It is very smooth when spinning and is very quiet. I took a video and sat it on the counter which makes it sound louder than it is if you have it in your hand. It is real quiet and smooth when spinning it in your hand. The color is awesome, I bought the red/blue one. And the design where it looks like a rolling fireball when it is spinning is much cooler than the traditional fidget spinner designs. The product feels extremely well made and sturdy and I expect it to last a real long time. I've only had this for a short time but it is already my favorite one. A+. I highly recommend this one!

Kingtop 3.5mm Combo Audio Adapter Cable for PS4,Xbox One S,Tablet,Mobile Phone,PC Gaming Headsets and New Version Laptop Review:


This cable allow you to split cellphone or computer that has a combo port for both mic and headphone.

I want to record music on Microsoft Surface Pro. Did a lot of google and can't find a real answer. I finally figured it out. With this cable, it allow me to use external microphone, at the same time, I disable the build in microphone in control panel---sound, now I can record high quality sound and music using external Rode NT1A.

By the way, sometimes, windows doesn't detect your external microphone and gray out the microphone setting in control panel, all you have to do is unplug the external mic and then plug in this slitter cable first, then plug in the external mic to this adapter.

In recording software such as Audacity, you can just set windows mapping.
Hope this tip help you.

I plan on posting a video review the next time I buy a bottle of wine, but let me just say that this is the easiest hand operated corkscrew I've ever used. You simply put it on top of the bottle, and then while holding it and the bottle you turn the top clockwise. The non-stick screw drives into the cork, and then as you keep turning the handle the cork just starts moving up the corkscrew until it's out! I've used it about 6 times so far, 5 bottles had the fake corks,and the last one I used it on had a real cork, it made no difference, the twister got all corks out easily. As you look around on Amazon as I did before buying this, you'll find many similar cork removers, some of which may have been around a lot longer than this one, but a couple of things caused me to buy this over the others. First of all I had already used the Vacuvin wine saver vacuum pump,Vacu Vin Wine Saver Blister Pack -1 Pump 1 Stopper which had worked great for me the last couple of years. And secondly this particular corkscrew has rubber grippers on the inside so when you put it on the bottle it seemed it would help hold the bottle more securely. Turns out I was right, it feels very secure on the bottle. Also the wine cooler works well, it's simply a freezer pack that slides over a wine bottle. Lastly the crystal (plastic) server is also amazing, I've used it with each of those 6 bottles of wine, and it is literally impossible to drip when this thing is used. And don't be nervous about this seller, JellyRivers either, they shipped the set to me as promptly as any other Amazon order I've placed and product was exactly as described. I will update my review as time passes to inform about longevity, but for now, well I'm a very satisfied customer.
