Has anyone found a left angle USB cable that doesn't block the headphone jack? I've bought a few right and left angle cables on eBay and Amazon and they all seem to right angle ones. The pictures are so small that I can't make out the true orientation of the cable.

Out of curiosity, which headphones are you using with such a large plug? Are you using an adapter with your headphones?

Based on the orientation of this cable (in the picture), it would definitely block the headphone port, as OP didn't want. Just a heads up.

But keep in mind that based on the orientation of the plug, for the M8 you will want the right angled cable instead of left. The narrow interface is on the bottom on the M8.

Just need to go to Related Items and pick the Right one instead. No biggie.

The request was for a left angle so that's what I posted a link for but they sell right angle also

Yeah, I'm just letting the OP know that not only does he need to worry about the direction of the cable itself, but also the orientation of the actual plug. Not saying that you are wrong, just a heads up for the OP, and anyone else who may be interested.
