Hmm, that's definitely no good. Have you tested another wired headset? If it came with one, you shouldn't need an additional adapter. As long as there's no damage near the jack and headset fits snug, you shouldn't need any additional hardware.
Again this is NOT just ear buds but a "headset with microphone" (a four
conductor 3.5mm plug with 3 insulator stripes.
Immediately after opening ur email I again tried a 3 of my headsets and (go
figure) all 3 are now working.
I may just go ahead and spring for a bluetooth headset to avoid having to
always have the adapter handy. Did just buy via AMAZON 5 USB Type C
Adapter USB-C Male to Micro USB Female Convert Connectors since I have,
probably, 25 Micro USB cables. One in the car, one in my backpack, one in
my "travel" bag, one in my golf cart, and one at my charging station. Five
for six bucks, can't beat that. Missed, completely, the fact that my new
phone didn't have a 3.2 jack. Will work around that.
Thanks for the response. Have a great weekend.
Oh wow. Go figure is totally right. Glad it's working for you buddy. Thanks for coming back to let us know. Wow that's a lot of cables! You seem to be someone that's well prepared which is awesome! Hope you find a Bluetooth that works out for you.
Thank you to all. I found and fixed the problem.
