To slim out devices, companies are leaving out the old and reliable 3.5mm audio jack and using a USB Type-C slot instead. That Type-C port works as the only input and output hardware port in such devices. The Type-C port is advanced in many aspects. It’s faster and more reliable but because of it, smartphone users have to deal with not having a port for headphones. In such cases, one needs a converter to convert the USB Type-C port to a 3.5mm audio jack. To help you find the right converter for your needs, we have curated a list of four such devices based on their availability on Amazon and their listed features.
The ONCRO Audio Jack Adapter converts a USB Type-C to 3.5mm Stereo Earphone Audio Aux Jack. It has an L-shaped (or 90-degree) design that helps with better cable management. This adapter by ONCRO is small and easy to carry around. It does not take up much space and can be carried in a purse or in your pocket with ease. The high-quality hardware and chip should ensure the stability of the transmission, which should help maintain the original sound quality while users enjoy their favourite songs, videos or movies. It also has a plug and play function so it works the minute you plug it in, without the need for any other software or application. Users can use it to listen to music as well as facilitate calls without any issues. The adapter is also compatible with a variety of devices.
The Portronics iKonnect-C Type-C to 3.5mm Aux Adapter Splitter Cable is ideal for picking up calls or listening to music without any issues.

The adapter cable only works with smartphones with a USB Type-C port. The adapter does not require any additional software or application to work with. It can simply be inserted to start working right away. The nickel-plated connectors should ensure continuous transmission and better durability while the TPE adds to the durability as well as wear and tear.
