[Solved] Splitting the lightening cable audio
A "Bus Buddy" (I commute to work on the bus) and I listen and play a trivia podcast together on our commute.
With iPhone 7 and the "Lightning Only Audio", I find splitting the audio tedious since we both have recent iPhones.
Is there a way to get two headphones connected to the iPhones without my current method of "Lightning -> 3.5mm", "3.5mm Y", "two 3.5mm earbuds".
Most of the adapters that are dual lightning play audio through one and charge on the other.
That's exactly where I ended up going... Found one at Target for $5
I looked around a bit on Amazon, and most of the stuff there will only support audio on ONE Lightning port at a time.
In fact, it seems like this may be a limitation of Lightning, though I can't be certain.
That said, I found this 3-way adapter with two Lightning ports and one analog headphone jack. This might be the way to go!
Just found this in the description:
- 【Note】 Don’t support using the Lightning audio jack and the 3.5mm audio jack at the same time. If both audio jack is plugged with headphones, only the Lightning audio jack will work.
