$1 Headphone Adapter for iPhone

I’ve just reviewed the iMetal Isolation Headset for iPhone, a pair of iPhone earphones I enjoyed. But good sound quality and iPhone-compatibility come at a price. In the case of the iMetal headset, $70.

Cheap iPhone headphone adapter

If you’ve already got a pair of headphones you like, but which are not iPhone-compatible because they don’t reach into the iPhone’s recessed headphone input, then you might be better off getting a cable adapter instead of new headphones.

I’ve reviewed Griffin’s iPhone headphone adapter, a product I recommend, but I read in a MacRumors forum thread today that you can get an iPhone headphone adapter for dirt cheap. I’m sure this is one of the cheapest iPhone headphone adapters out there: for $1 at MonoPrice.com.

I haven’t tested this adapter, but if you need one, what have you got to lose? That is, except for $1.

They are ‘sold out’ at http://www.monoprice.com, but I did find another website for $2.99 http://www.igearusa.com/3stheadforap.html

It works great!

Or buy nothing, and simply file or cut a tiny amount of plastic off your connector so that it will fit into the recessed jack on the iPhone.


Just ordered these. Before I was spending $10 for a pair of Belkins at Target.


when you go to the website to order this adapter there is actually one on there for $.94. i ordered it and we’ll see how it works.
