Bear in mind if you use these with Android and they have a power limit unlike the US versions .

Have you got a link to the Samsung / Google / LG / HTC / Nokia / Moto versions for less than £6.99?
Very poor according to all reviews.

The Sony one which is just a pass through type like this is okay, and less than £5 delivered in the UK, as long as this works with your phone.

You can get it from Ali Express for about $3 too

These are considered to have much better audio performance compared to similar dongles from other brands. Great price for a great bit of kit.

Can you expand on this? I'm looking at getting a new USB-C:3.5mm DAC and want to do due diligence.

Due to EU laws they have a lower power output. Have a look on Google as well.

Thanks. I did google before asking, but I didn't know what I was looking for without more context.

It does have a DAC in and it does work with Pixel phones (which need a DAC as they don’t have pass-through).

This would only apply if other manufacturers didn’t charge the same (or more) for similar adaptors.

Extra 24p on Amazon if you like next day delivery.

These definitely work with a Pixel 2 XL then? Lost my adapter this week along with my very expensive IE80s earphones
Now that 3.5mm headphone output is nearing extinction in smartphones, it's time to start compiling the list for the best USB-C to 3.5mm adapter DACs. Many phones don't even offer analog output anymore on their USB-C output , so the only option is to have a dongle/adapter with a built-in DAC.

Unfortunately, the output power and sound quality of these DACs is mostly mediocre or downright poor (here's looking at you Google with your useless Pixel adapters).

So, what are the highest quality and best bang for your buck USB-C to 3.5mm Digital output DAC adapters (small size)?

The short list so far (6/2019):

Apple USB-C to 3.5mm adapter ~ $10 USD
apple.com/sho…tin
Output power: 31mW @33 Ohm (tested)
Sound quality: good (for a dongle/adapter)
Volume control: digital
Line-in mic support (in Android): ?

Shockingly the best one for most people is the Apple iPad Pro dongle. £9, widely available, an excellent dac and reasonably sized with broad compatibility afaik.

The Apple usb-C adapter is indeed excellent. It actually outperforms this adapter’s main competitor at less than 1/3 the price and a smaller package:

Vs

Notably the poster here is an anti-Apple fanboy if anything. Apple really nailed the adapter, and it’s priced unusually low.

I use the Apple dongle with my Pixel 2 every day. I don’t think it has been mentioned in these comments, but the BEST feature for me it allows the headphone buttons that only used to work with iDevices now work on my Pixel. All of the buttons (volume up/down and play/pause) on my Westone W10 headphones work flawlessly using the Apple dongle. Using other dongles, only the play/pause button works. Minus the questionable quality/longevity of the other USB-C dongles I’ve bought, this had been my biggest gripe, and Apple solved it.

Apple USB-C adapter is truly universal (only one possible negative: low volume) [not a sound quality post]

So I went to an Apple Store and got me the USB-C to 3.5mm adapter (had to ask, they had them in the back even though online it said they'd have it on Nov 7). I had suspected that it would work better for MFi wired headsets, cause the inline remote of headsets for Apple devices can't control volume on Google phones (don't know about other Android devices). Sure enough, volume does work, so now I can use my earpods and my QC25's to their full extent on my Pixel phones (got the 3 and 2XL currently).

What surprised me and I wasn't counting on, is that it also works with all buttons including volume with my Android headsets (Sony STH40D, STH30 and STH32). This makes it the only adapter I know that will take both types of headsets and fully work with media controls on Android. It remains to be seen if the converse is true, if they will also work with the new iPad Pros. Right now Android headsets can't control volume on iOS devices with headphone jacks. I don't have a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter so I don't know about that scenario.

The size is considerably smaller than the Google one, and the cable is as thin as the Earpods' cable. See here for comparison: imgur.com/ooM…jIW (left to right: Google v1, v2, Apple). Not sure about durability, we'll see. It's also very nice that they are following the Android guidelines which state that the adapter should correctly detect if a headset (with mic), a headphone, or nothing at all is plugged into it. The third-party adapter (LIOOTECH) I have, and I suspect others, don't follow this, and the phone always thinks it's connected to a headset. This will prevent you from successfully making calls if you have a headphone plugged into the adapter, cause the phone won't use its internal mic because it thinks there's a headset connected. This is not a problem with the Google adapters and this Apple one. Nice touch.

The only negative I see right away, which may or may not be a deal-breaker for some people, is that the volume output is noticeably lower than the Google adapters.

As in the title, I'm not comparing sound "quality", mostly because as long as it doesn't sound perceptibly different or distorted I don't care. I care more about usability and practicality. I'm sure other people will open other threads when measurements start coming in. Right now the only glaring difference regarding audio output is the low volume.

Edit: and oh yeah, IT'S 25% CHEAPER.
