Mobile Device Cables and Adapters Selection Guide
Adapter Selection Guide
 
kVconnection carries a large variety of adapters which allow you to connect just about any standard microphone and/or speakers or headphones to smart phones and other mobile device headset jacks. The typical headset jack used on these devices is called a 3.5mm 4-conductor jack which incorporates a microphone input and a stereo audio output from the device. Other alternate names for the 3.5mm 4-conductor jack are; 1/8 inch or mini jack, 3 ring jack, TRRS jack and 4 pole jack. These headset jacks are not all wired the same and therefore headsets and adapters are separated into two main groups of compatible wiring. We currently only sell adapters that use the iPhone style wiring. We test each of these adapters with the iPhone/iPad/iPod, other phones that use the same iPhone compatible wiring may work with our adapters but they are not tested. This guide will help you decide which mobile phone adapter you will need to connect different styles of microphones and headphones to your mobile device.

Device Headset Connections:
There are several types of headset and/or A/V connectors in use on different mobile devices. Some devices may use the same connectors but use a different wiring making them incompatible with the other models. Below is a brief description of the variety of headset connectors used.
 
2.5mm TRS Connector
2.5mm TRS connector Headset connector used on some devices for mono audio out and microphone in. Other Names: sub-mini connector, 2 ring connector,  2.5mm stereo connector, 2.5mm 3-pole connector, 2.5mm 3-conductor connector
2.5mm TRRS Connector 2.5mm TRRS connector Headset connector used on some devices for stereo audio out and microphone in. Other Names: sub-mini connector, 3 ring connector,  2.5mm 4-pole connector, 2.5mm 4-conductor connector

 Non-iPhone Compatible Wiring:
Motorola Droid Headset Pinout

The Droid style wiring uses the same 3.5mm 4-pole headset connector as the iPhone; however, it uses a different wiring and is therefore not compatible with the iPhone adapters. Phones that use the Droid style wiring are Motorola Droid, Droid2, DroidX and others... We do not carry adapters for phones using the Droid style wiring.
