Harsh Dave :( The BBS is about opinion.

Also as IoW has the 1st Gen the earphone socket was recessed I believe which probably accounts for his problem. This was rectified on the 3G Andy, all headphones fit.

Dave 17-12-2008 07:43 PM

Even in 1st gen it's a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, recessed connection or not

Yes but it was notorious for being a bugger to get headphones to fit. I believe there used to be adapter kits and the like to solve the problem unless you had a svelte headphone jack you were screwed.

i make ridcully right on this one. i have a special adapter as it's recessed back into t'iPhone

James 17-12-2008 08:23 PM

Yes - apologies are in order. It seems that he was right in relation to the old Iphone ...

Dave 17-12-2008 08:27 PM

It's a standard headphone socket, there are plenty of heaphones out there that will fit a 2G iphone.

Yes, but clearly many didn't fit it - and that problem has been sorted out in the 3g version.

It was a daft thing for Apple to do in the original design, which fortunately they seem to have fixed.

Oh and you have to use apple headphones as the other standard jacks are just too wide to fit in the socket.
This simply isn't true. Argue amongst yourselves about anything else.

I believe all you have to do is cut of the rubber part above the plug on the headphones, and it wil slip right in

No It is a fact. Not ill informed opinion, Three sets of headphones dont fit Fact. Other have also mentioned that due to the recess on older Iphones it doesnt fit. Fact. As was said kits were even produced to get round the problem. Fact. Been rectified on the 3G Fact. You on the other had obviosuly dont know what you are talking about and you might want to think before passing off ill informed opinion as fact

Having said that, I'm trying to find out whether Toshiba are even making the chips needed for a 32GB iPhone, and it doesn't look like they are as yet.

James 18-12-2008 01:27 PM

Just to settle the argument - my neighbour has a 2g IPhone - and he told me that he had tried FIVE different sets of ear/head phones - and NONE of them fitted. The mini-jack is, for some odd reason, recessed which means that any 'L' shaped plug and many straight ones with a large base simply will not fit. A couple of the earphones he showed me would go most of the way in - but that meant you only got one channel of audio.

What a stupid thing for Apple to have done. Still, at least they didn't repeat the mistake on the new 3g model.

Dave 18-12-2008 02:39 PM

Yeah, just ignore my photos

Dave 18-12-2008 09:19 PM

robot chicken on Joost, it's what the Iphone was made for

Random* 18-12-2008 10:16 PM

I've just ordered mine :D

Dave 18-12-2008 10:22 PM

Enjoy :)

What a ridiculous over-reaction. I make IoW right on this, I can't fit my regular headphones into my iphone either as the socket is recessed too far. Just google any combination of "iphone", "headphones" and "don't fit" and you'll find that loads of people complained about it.
