    Hermes headphone adapter warning

    Several mini USB to 3.5mm jack socket adapters have started to appear for sale on the web and on eBay etc.

    It would appear that these adapters are designed for some other phone or device as it DOES NOT work with the HTC Hermes (M3100, TyTN etc). I got hold of one of these to test. No sound is heard through the headphones and the Hermes internal speaker is not muted.

    The reason these adapters do not work is that the utilise a normal mini USB plug. Standard mini USB plugs only have connectors on one side which means that it can only connect to the USB data side of the socket.

    Be careful what you are buying, if it’s a standard mini USB to 3.5mm jack then it’s no good.

    I’m not aware of anyone making a compatible adapter for the Hermes at the moment but if you know otherwise, please let me know!
