2.5mm Plug to 3.5mm Socket Adapter

Allows a 3.5mm mono jack plug to be used with a 2.5mm mono jack socket.

Can this be used with a 3.5mm car stereo microphone input? My Pioneer stereo has a 2.5mm jack but my microphone is 2.5mm.

Asked by: gazzabazza1000
Whilst this will convert a 3.5 mm mono down to a 2.5 mm mono, unfortunately we would be unable to confirm suitability with your car stereo. Typically a car stereo will have a stereo auxiliary input so you can attach external devices such as a Mobile Phone or MP3 player, but it cannot be used as a microphone input. You may need to check with the radio manufacturer with regard to compatibility and usage in the manner you suggest.

Hi, would this adapter work for plugging a photography flash sync cable in or is it only designed for audio use? Thanks!

Asked by: Suzy
It can be tasked to any use as long as the original jack is of a 3.5mm mono variant.

Am I right in saying that this plugs into a 2.5mm socket and allows a 3.5mm plug to be plugged into the back of this adapter

Asked by: Another confused person
Yes, I am pleased to advise this will do exactly this.

is this the right adapter to connect an xbox 360 headset to an xbox 1 controller? apparently xbox 1 is the standard size but the xbox 360 controller had a smaller size

I just bought this adaptor and it only outputs sound to one earphone from my Nokia phone. Is it a problem with the adaptor or something else? Thank you

More than likely an incombatability issue.
