    So I brought my headset in to work today and wanted to listen to a online video to only realize that apple only provided one side of the solution not the other. I need a lightning to 3.5mm headjack adaptor

    Anyone can point me to the right one that would be great.

    Add Apple pencil charging adapter and you should be good to go!

    Don't you have any 3.5mm headphones. It's pretty much a given that a pair of lightning earphones are only going to connect to Apple products.

    You will not find a simple adapter. The Lightning headphones (and their inbuilt DAC/amp) need a power supply, which the headphone jack cannot provide. Of course it'd be possible to build an active adapter with a battery, but it'd be much simpler (and probably cheaper) to just buy a set of earphones with a 3.5mm jack.
