    I have a set of Creative Fatal1ty gaming headphones (with 2 male TRS jack connectors, 1 for stereo in an the other for the mic). I would like to attach these headphones to my blackberry (which uses a single TRRS jack socket) so I can use them for hands free calls.

    Does anyone know of an adaptor I can get to do this? I can't be the only one who wants do do something like this.

    Hi Mike,

    You probably need something like this:

    3.5mm Jack Splitter Cable for use with Headphones / Mic

    However, it is still not a guarantee that you would be able to use them with your Blackberry; the wiring of the Blackberry's jack socket should be compatible with the 4 Pin TRRS connector of the adapter. I would kindly advise to check with the merchant you bought your phones from or the manufacturer itself, I am sure either will be able to help you with this :)

    Thanks for the reply Kornel HiFi

    I think I need more than a splitter. I need something that can separate the TRRS signals into separate TRS jacks for Mic & headphones.

    I hunted around some more. The closest I can find is this

    iPad Audio Adapters

    which says it is for iPhone. The question then becomes whether or not the TRRS pin out for iPhones and Blackberry's is the same or not.

    Hi Mike,

    I am sorry about that, that is what I actually meant to post - I just had a look at the title of the item which is a bit misleading and I posted it without checking the description.

    Most Blackberry products take the Apple compatible 4 pole connectors, here is a list of Blackberry models that work with the same pinout as Apple:

    Here is another useful site:

    Hope this helps!
