    3.5mm to 2.5mm headset converters

    Advertisement



    First, let me say that moving to a 3.5 mm jack is a big plus for those of us who want to listen to music on the Curve. However... it does pose one problem for me.

    I have a cell phone interface in my airplane audio panel which I use getting ATC clearances, or calling US customs to give an ETA during international flights. My problem is that the cabling is set up for a 2.5 mm cell phone connector.

    I am not at the plane now... so I do not really know if it is a 3 or 4 connector plug. I can check that tomorrow evening. The easiest solution would be a converter that converts a 2.5mm male to a 3.5mm male.

    Worse case is to have a custom cable made. For that, I would need to know the function and position of each of the four connectors of the Curve.

    Thanks in advance.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Go to Seidioonline.com. They are the only company that has the adapter you need. Just go to blackberry 8800 items.

    Thank you... that looks like the right solution. I'll order it as I think it will be what I need. I'll report back after it arrives and I get a chance to test drive it in the plane.

    Reporting in:

    I checked out the plane... and the cell phone interface is a 3 connector 2.5mm connection. I also have ordered the converter and I am waiting for its arrival. I probably wont be testing this until after new years.

    I tested the Seidio adapter, and unfortunately, it did not work properly. I think (but I am not positive) that it is related to the fact that the Curve has a 4 connector socket, and my plane has a 3 connector plug. I am not sure which of the 3 signals are being connected to the Curve.

    What I found was as follows: I called my wife (who was standing outside the plane) and she could hear me just fine (indicating that MIC is connected OK. However, I could not hear her at all. If I slowly pull the connector out of the Curve, then I could hear her momentarily. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

    Does anyone know the function of each of the 4 signals in the curve's connector? If I knew that, I could probably fabricate a custom cable. Also... I suspect that two of the signals are R and L audio out. How would I configure that for mono telephone conversations?

    Thanks in advance.
