Best Lightning headphone Adapters for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus iMore 2020

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus no longer includes a tiny adapter that lets you use the phone's Lightning port with 3.5mm wired headphones. Don't worry; you can still buy one separately. On this list, you'll find Apple's official adapter plus some third-party options to enjoy.

It's official: Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter

This adapter used to ship with iPhones. Now, you need to pay for this accessory separately. If you only buy Apple accessories for your Apple products, this is the (only) one you can buy for your iPhone.
