    Anyone know where I can order an audio extension cable with male & female 2.5 mm jacks that works on the Apple earphone / earpods? I ordered one from Amazon that didn't work well with the Apple model phones as it didn't make a good solid electrical connection. I need about a 3 ft. extension to use my phones from where I sit while on my computer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    First off it's 3.5mm, not 2.5mm, so searching on that might give you better results.

    Do you need mic? If just sound & no mic, any standard stereo extender would work. I've never had luck with the 4-conductor extensions that would be needed for mic, but others here have said they've gotten them to work.

    Yes, 3.5 mm is what I meant and I only need audio. What brands/vendors have worked for just an audio extension? The one I ordered from an Amazon vendor did not function.

    Thanks!
