A headphone jack adapter allows you to connect your headphones and other gadgets to a 3.5 mm jack. It is typically used in conjunction with an electric guitar or other musical instrument. An adapter often offers a great option for Apple iPhones and iPads, as well as Android devices, that lack a 3.5 mm jack. Various adapters are available that support different versions of Apple iOS. An adapter may consist of metal with rubber coating on the top. Adapters may be sold in sets of 2 or more, so if you accidentally lose an adapter, you'll have a backup readily available. Some adapters support assorted headphone controls, such as volume and skipping songs. Myriad adapters even come with a remote control and other advanced capabilities.
