Question [Q] Need Slim 3.5 mm Adapter for Spigen Neo Hybrid Case

Hey,

I bought a Spigen eo Hybrid case for my Nexus 5. I like to use Sennheiser headphones with it for music playback the 90 minute trip on the transit each way to and from work. Trouble is the headphone jack doesn't fit the recessed hole in the case.

I thought I could find a 3.5 to 3.5 slim adapter for them but the only thing after an hour of Googling is a 3.5mm to 3.5mm slim IPhone audio adapter.

Any suggestions on what I can do other then buy a headset?

Peace...

Is there any reason the iphone one won't work? It's just a 3.5mm to 3.5mm adapter isn't it? the iPhone part is probably just a name they add to it for marketing purposes.

True that!

@OP
You can even take a sharp razor and cut a small portion of the case to widen the hole. However, this may lead to some lint accumulation on that area.

I've used a razor in the past to shave the headphone plug slimmer to accommodate the smaller hole.

i bought an IPhone 3.5 to 3.5 slim headphone jack adapter, it does with with my 280 Pro headphones. Just tested it with my headset, mic works as well. So for $2 or so from Amazon and maybe a couple bucks shipping you can use any headphone with any case.
