On the website it is written that the zenfone 7 Audio output only support USB-C® to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter with Driver Ic. What does driver ic means? Is the phone compatible with any adapter? I have a Split adapter to plug a 3.5mm and to recharge the phone at the same time and my phone says it is not compatible. Is it only because it is plit?


  • Needs one with a DAC

    Honestly, removing 3.5mm jacks is the stupidest idea ever. This makes tons of perfectly good vintage equipment obsolete. What gives?

    Zenfone is my first and last phone that I buy without 3.5mm. I did not realize how bad it is until getting one.

  • Not obsolete. Just buy a 3.5mm to USB-C adapter but make sure it has a DAC.

  • Most are just rubbish and now I cannot charge the phone while listening unless I buy another ghetto looking extra device. This is a problem that nobody needed. Oh, and don't forget to carry the 5 dongles with you... This is not OK.
