I'm quite sure this won't work. I believe you need a Micro-B to Mini-B, but for it to work, and two of the five pins on the S3 side (I don't remember which ones) have to be shorted to put the S3 into USB Host mode.  My cables work well but they are a little messy. 

 

I have seen a YouTube video on how to short the Micro-B pins to make it work but I haven't tried it yet.  If I can't find a ready made "neat" solution in the near future, I will probably try making one myself.

It's supposed to be an usb otg cable with one side as host.
The coiled cable aren't otg so it won't work.

Has anyone managed to find a short one of these yet? Like LOD type lenth?

That xDuoo one looks perfect, I wonder if it can be bought aftermarket anywhere?

Ideally I want one in the UK though...

I just ordered some short micro-b to standard usb, and mini usb to standard usb cables from dx.com. I plan to make my own short micro-b to mini-a cables (for LOD)

Shouldnt be hard.

 

And check this out if you want to do something like me.

Sorry I can't offer any advice on what type of USB wire is correct.

The Galaxy S3 can do this on ICS firmwares too, Samsung added proper USB audio themselves quite iindependently of the rubbish 'USB audio' that Google added in JB.

My apologize for being blind. I saw them a bit after posting and found another thread saying they work.
