    MiniUSB to 3.5mm adapter for asus p320

    Post  TheMafioso on Tue May 26, 2009 6:46 pm

    Hi Guys,

    I know this is not accessories forum sorry...but still i'm this question here since there no other dedicated forums for asus mobiles Very Happy
    I am searching for a miniUSB to 3.5mm adapter for connecting normal earphones to the phone...

    There are plenty available for HTC phones and i'm sure ASUS has similar mini USB interface as HTC but problem is HTC have extUSB which has slightly different shape than regular miniUSB...extUSB pin is curved one side only unlike miniUSB which is curved at both ends...so it can not fit my phone Sad



    Are there anywhere selling miniUSB to 3.5mm adapter, which ship internationally and preferably having form factor without wires like this


    Regards,

    You can use the data cable and charger of HTC but not the head phones..you could also use the charger of motorola v6 (or some variant) but the headphones of asus p320 is unique, I have been searching for the past one year for a mini usb to 3.5mm stereo jack but in vain. I even tried in futility to cut a usb cable and solder its leads to the female end of 3.5mm stereo jack....didnt work pale pale

    the p320 has miniUSB, HTC has extUSB...so adapters for HTC cannot be fit in p320...as extUSB jack is not compatible with miniUSB but vice versa is true i.e. miniUSB jack can fit in extUSB..

    Simple cutting the miniUSB cable to get audio output won't work as ASUS also has extra pins for audio output like HTC (ie the 11 pin cable)...there's a guy on same other forum(thinkdigit forums) who has been using HTC adapter with p320 and it has been working fine...luckily he found a miniUSB htc adapter, most sold online are extUSB Sad

    Ok guys, i managed to fit the HTC adapter which i've bought for my asus by filing the extUSB to minUSB



    it now fits. When i plug in the adaptor connected with an earphone i do get the handsfree icon on my phone....but when I play i don't get any sound in my earphones..
    I fear the some of things i tried with the adapter before filing it may have damaged it, so there's no sound now...

    Do you guys think it would work if I should get a new adapter and file it again since I do get the earphone icon on my device when i connect it?

    Just because you are able to get the slot to fit and the number of pins match does not mean that the HTC and the Asus have the same pin configuration.

    Check this link on ebay ....

    Would love to know if something works as the headphone don't sit well for me.

    Cheers,
    Vikram.

    I've got the same adapter shipped to India and it took about 10 days to reach it...however I feel the cord of the adapter is quite long..
    Here's another one available...with a shorter cord but no mic...

    Query

    Post  smart2smart on Thu Jun 18, 2009 7:04 pm

    Hey thanks for the prompt replies Themafioso & O2, am going ahead with this but I have some questionss.

    1. TheMafioso did you buy with headphone or the same as O2, if yes, how are the headphones ?

    2. Since I have never used paypal before, did some reading up, the page says that you need to be verified paypal only. For verifying, does the $2 revert to your account of is it used for the next purchase or is it completely lost ?

    3. Did either of you guys opt for that insurance ?

    Sorry for the trouble Smile

    Thanks !

    I've used paypal also for the first time:-) They charge your credit card $2 and after that they return $2 directly again to your credit card as cancelled payment.
    So it's free - as a result you'll have a confirmed paypal account with balance of $0 and no change to your total credit card balance is done (-$2 and then +$2).
    Then you can make your order. When you make payment via paypal, your credit card will be automatically charged that amount (so, you don't need to transfer money to your paypal account in advance).

    I did not use the insurance, the goods came as a letter in a protective envelope with air-bubbles, I guess it's unprobable it would be damaged in transit.

    I also did order without the headphones...the $8.99 ones and did not opt for insurance as I didn't see it earlier...otherwise I wud have Wink
    For me the $2 were not returned back to the card...but I was given credit of $2 in Paypal account which can be used to pay through Paypal later on...

    Hey O2 / Mafioso, Thanks for the update Smile I guess you guys understand all the apprehension for a first time user !

    Looks like I won't get the $2 back like Mafioso being in India myself Smile I'll just look at it as a $11 product and be done with it.

    Thanks again
