    Dear Razer Community,

    I believe this is a major issue that has yet to be addressed.

    I am a father of 3 year old boy and my second son is ETA soon in 1-2 months or so.

    I usually hang around my kid and sometimes i have to be around during nap time. Even more so when the newborn arrives.

    So HOW DO I CHARGE AND USE MY 3.5mm headphones at the same time. Dont ask me to use wireless bluetooth headphones, i have a few but it is too bothersome to always charge them, and i don't control how long the kid/baby sleeps.

    The razer phone has the 3.5mm adapter THX certified and what not, but battery drains alot during gaming. i dont always have a full charge when i start baby sitting, that is also why i have plenty of power banks.

    Anyone can recommend a good type-c splitter or is there exist a type-c to 2x type-c expander/splitter/adapter ?

    Can anyone here share their actual experience with a splitter if ever ?

    Thanks ! I want to play FFXV Pocket edition without turning down the vol when babysitting.

    From what I've seen here and elsewhere the phone doesn't support it.. At least no one iveI'seen has gotten one to work. Bluetooth my friend is your only option.

    Bummer~! So now i have to throw my razer hammerhead pro V2 into the second hand market and buy a new razer hammerhead BT ?

    Dear Razer
    "Give us an accessory to fix this ! People who buy razer products aren't worried that much about cost but rather functionality and cool factor*"

    Cool factor* alone without functionality is worthless.

    Also if they ever make project linda available i would buy it but for god sake, make an arced sink-in to fit razer phones using razer official phone cases so we dont have to remove the phone cases when docking it !

    Thanks again for quick reply !

    I saw so many accessories having the 3.5mm jack and USB c port ... but the question is , is it able to charge and play music in the same time.

    Ok, to put to rest most of us Razer phone owner's questions in our heads, i had spent my time and money so you can save yours.


    Cheap USB Type-C earphones online dont work, sound will still go out from the speaker no matter how much you try to thinker around the settings, no DAC = not going to work.


    Cheap USB Type-C splitters will not work too (again cuz theres no built in DAC), the phone charges fine but again no sound through the headphones.

    Apologize for the lack of quality of the images and messy background but hey i'm not a professional reviewer. After this i will go back and try these accessories on another device with Type-C port and get back to you guys.

    i'd love an update for this. i usually just use my BT headphones (i always use BT headphones for gym and jog anyway) when charging. but the option to use headphone cable while charging will be nice
