    Hiya, my 3.5mm Earpods are in need of replacing and I have my brand new Ligtning Earpods that work great on the iPhone/iPad but I really need to be able to connect them to my Work Laptop so that I can make/Receive Calls

    I can't go for in-ear phones as I have stupidly small ears and over ears are not practical in the office as they block out too much and I cant wear them all day

    Apple earpods are the ONLY phones that seem to fit my ears well but not being able to connect them to my laptop is a biggie.....I know I could buy another 3.5mm pair and use the adapter on my iPhone but I'll leave the office and forget to take the adapter with me!!

    Is there a device that can allow lightning phones to connect via USB or 3.5mm???

    You'd need a 3.5 to 3.5 jack to use in combination with the adapter.

    The adapter allows me to connect 3.5mm phones to a lightning port

    I want to connect lightning phones to a 3.5mm jack or USB

    Looking for the same. I can't plug the new lightning earphones into my MacBookPro.

    Wrong adapter.

    Cheaper to just buy a new set of the 3.5mm Apple EarPods. Seen them on eBay and even a Groupon new for like $7
