    Hi -
    Over the internet, I had mail-ordered a 2.5mm-to-3.5mm stereo adapter and had been using it happily at work, but somehow it's been lost and I want a replacement ASAP. Has anyone seen them on sale in retail stores? I'm looking for the name of a retail chain, or something local to Tyson's Corner, VA, USA.

    I know you can get them at Radio Shack..hope that helps!

    Don't get the RS one. it puts too much stress on the jack. You want one with the little wire. Sorry though, I don't know of a local store.

    I got mine at the Palm retail store at the Pitt. airport. See the link below -- is Union Station too far for you to go?

    Yeah, I can vouch that the RS 2.5-2.5mm adaptor puts stress on the jack. AND it doesn't maintain contact as well as a 2.5mm Right Angle to 3.5mm jack with a small cord.

    i bought the Radioshack adaptor and it sucks. DONT BUY IT! sounds are still mono on the RS adaptor.

    Get this and you can use any headphone you have.

    We had a long discussion about headsets in this thread:

    I also got the RS one the other day and only get mono. I am returning it today.

    I think I remember reading that RS has 2 different versions - one is mono and the other stereo. I could be mistaken, though.

    that's correct. there are two different ones. you have to be sure and get the stereo adapter. still not the best choice but it's all I could find local. if you get one don't break it off in the jack like I did.

    I got my Palm-branded one a year or so ago at Franklin Covey. Last time I was there they still had them in stock for $9.99. I've also seen them at the various Palm stores/kiosks located throughout the country.

    CompUSA retail stores also had a package a while back for about $15 that was (I think)a HP-branded generic stereo headphone/mic combo that included a 2.55mm to 3.5mm adapter plug.

    I picked one at Target for $15. It works great - no problems here. It's retractable and works with any headset. No problem reported from those on the opposite side of the conversation while using the integrated mic either.
