Question [Q] Micro usb stereo audio output?

Hey everyone,

Having a bad GPS -signal as soon as I plug in my headphones (which renders GPS tracking basically useless for me), I am looking for alternative ways of using my headphones while doing sports. Searching the Internet, I came across various microUSB to headphone adapters (e.g. serach on amazon for: "LinkS Micro USB to VGA MHL Adapter+Micro 5pin to 11pin adapter + Charging Cable in Black 3 Feet Kit" or "Universal Micro USB Interface to 3.5mm Plug Earphone Adapter (Black)", I have not enough posts to post links/images, yet). Now I am wondering if our phone will support these adapters and if yes, can I control the volume of the output?

Many thanks in advance!

Using an USB audio device requires USB OTG which our device doesn't support.

MHL uses a different method.
If there is working OTG, USB audio support is enabled in the kernel and USB audio HAL is included in the rom, it can work. Older versions too support it.
