Default [Q] Headphone port extender suggestions

Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone had any recommendation for headphone port extender?

I have a UAG and Spigen Neo-Hybrid and it's such a hassle to have to take off the the case in order to use headphones or car's aux port.

I found some on Amazon and was wondering if anyone had any good experience with this.



Here is what I found:

I had the same problem with the same case (and other cases). The jack I was using was too thick, and wouldn't fit in the case hole. I used an adapter for a while with no issues, so I think any of the ones you linked to will work. I ended up just getting a new AUX cable that has a small end, and now just use that, but thanks for the links. I may pick one or two up for safe keeping.

I had the same problem and I solved it by trimming the plastic / rubber around the base of the 3.5mm audio plug. You may not want to do that to an expensive set of headphones but audio patch cables are like $2 so I don't care if they fall apart after a while.
