Basically I need this but USB Type C Female. Quite the opposite to what most people are looking, but basically got a pair of Active Noise Cancelling Earphones Type C male connector but wish to use in device with only 3.5mm Audio jack (headphone extender to DAC). Or if you put a USB Type C to Type B convertor on the end of the type C earphones you think this cable would suit?
Or I'm I completely wrong and they would not work, being Active Noise Cancelling, requiring the Type C to draw power?

Double ended USB C Female. (almost sounds erotic lol)
USB C Aux connector
That's probably your best bet getting the female-female usb c converter and see if that would work?
And no USB ports with audio support?
You'd need a device that was specifically designed to drive a USB audio device like speakers or headphones. You could set something up with a cheap computer (Raspberry Pi etc.) but whether there's an already existing device I'm not sure.
Nopes, as the AUX end is female,need AUX end to be male and Type C end female. Basically the opposite to those ones. (edited)
Ty. I was thinking that myself also. Earphones free but thought I'd try to find a use for them.
Thank you. Might try that cheap option of the Female to Female Type C. Already got a male Type C to female 3.5m adapter somewhere, then use a male to male 3.5mm into the DAC to try. Cheap option so worthwhile attempting anyhow.
You mention a DAC. If you're trying to plug USB headphones isn't a DAC then that's not going to work. Any USB speaker/headphones does the digital to analogue conversion itself, it's not possible to use them with an external DAC.
What are you using them with? A phone?
A TV that doesn't have a headphone socket. Just being cheap and trying to find a use for the free earphones lol. Trying to avoid going down the selling route.
How are you connecting to the TV? By the Optical?
Yeah by optical. Already had that setup running past 10 months, though off course normal 3.5mm earphones.
Thanks for the reply. USB's on TV don't support audio. Never thought also of the Pi route, happen to have one sitting gathering dust also (previously used to runLibreELEC). Will investigate that route further, thanks for the idea and project, off work next week
This with the gender changing adapter must be worth a shot? At worst its £5 and a few weeks wait from china down the drain at best it works. Else maybe find a better DAC with more output options?
