Am I missing something here? How will this work? It's micro to micro, not micro to mini. Wut.

As just reported by Ripplinghurst, these won't work. I have bought a couple off eBay and they both work. The following one works but is a little stiff for my liking. http://www.ebay.com/itm/mini-USB-OTG-Host-cable-lead-Archos-Home-Tablet-7-/261127669335?_trksid=p2047675.m1985&_trkparms=aid%3D444000%26algo%3DSOI.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D13%26meid%3D3932288029254846192%26pid%3D100012%26prg%3D1014%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D251147285033%26 I believe the following should also work but I don't own it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3Ft-1M-coiled-USB-Mini-B-5-Pin-male-to-Micro-5pin-male-Adapter-Spiral-cable-cord-/270878975614?pt=US_USB_Cables_Hubs_Adapters&hash=item3f11a5267e Search eBay using "USB Mini B 5 Pin male to Micro 5pin male" I just received a short 6" one from China that I paid $3.00 for (including shipping) and it works just fine. Good luck!

Yeah i found it weird that people were saying "thanks i'm buying these!" when they clearly won't work, oh well. Probably gonna buy the silver one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Micro-b-male-Mini-b-male-data-cable-lead-adaptor-/261135697830?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26meid%3D3959359792674023981%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D251147285033%26

I think these are the same as yours, chinook9, but it says mine are about 4", not 6". Not that it matters.
 

EDIT: just read the description twice, it says "about 10 cm" under "Item Specifics" but then it says "about 15 cm (1/2 ft)" under "Specifications"

So i guess it's the exact same cable...

Btw, you mentioned that you found the cable stiff, is it too stiff to have in one's pocket together with an amp/dac+phone? Can you wrap it around the phone perhaps?

That's the one I purchased, still awaiting delivery. Very slow, as it was last year when I brought my original USB OTG cable from them (incidentally the most famous OTG cable in the world!).

Do you find it stiff? I mean Is it soft enough to fit comfortably in a pocket?

Have you guys compared the output from the S3 against the external DAC's?  I wish there was an easy way to ABX it, but it seems to drive my m50's pretty well!

post #40 of 63

As I compared before, the sound with DAC+AMP (ODAC+Headstage Arrow 3G) was much more dynamic and better soundstage (more deep+wide), also much more silent the background (low noise). 

After I switched back to SGS3 direct, I can confirm phone has enough power to drive my IEMs, but I always felt boring and dull, closed sounding.

And it seems the phone also makes sometimes small noises which an be easily heard when music is quiet.

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

 

::edit:: just clarifying,  I shouldnt have posted in here about a micro to micro I'm sorry. 

           The cable from hakshop is MICRO to MICRO.  If you are looking for a micro to mini there are many around the web.

post #42 of 63

well for those who didn't read carefully enough, you can still connect your s3 to your friends s3 for "some peer to peer pwnage!" rolleyes.gif

post #43 of 63

Are you saying that with the Galaxy S3 and Note 2, a standard Micro usb to mini usb could be used to get audio through an amp? Or, would we still need an OTG variant?

post #44 of 63

Don't know if your answer has already been answered, but if you need a Micro-A to Mini-B USB OTG, I know of someone who can sell you some from China. It's going to take me a couple weeks to get them, but he only charges like $4.00, $5.00 with shipping and I live in Wisconsin. Here's the address:

What we need to do is get a group buy together for the cable they ship with the iBasso kit:
