$1 Headphone Adapter for iPhone

Jun 8, 20085889Views7Comments

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

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


Buy on MonoPrice: iPhone Headphone Adapter Cable


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
