Question 3.5mm Stereo Output on Nokia E90

I love my E90... however, I don't like the earpieces that ship with the set. While they are functional, and the radio sounds great, I would really prefer to be using my Bose QC headphones for listening to music.

Using a standard 2.5 mm to 3.5mm converter (RadioShack) I get sound only in one channel. Looking at Nokia's site - all the stereo adapters available seem to be for phones with Pop Ports.What am I supposed to be using? Is it that the FM antenna and Microphone connections somehow mess with using the 2.5 mm jack as a standard stereo output?

I tried using the adapter, and then with a 2.5mm "standard" headphone(EarGlove) -- same story , sound only in 1 channel. I am tired of looking for these adapters in RadioShacks, CircuitCities, and other electronics stores.

Any suggestions?

regards,
Sudipta

The Nokia AD-50 is what you need. See here: AD 50

There must be some quite subtle differences in the length of the contact points of the various adaptors. I am able to use a generic one I bought in Maplins, and have read other posts from people some saying they can and some saying they can't use a standard adaptor.

Someone else's experience with AD-50 - I am just concerned that I will have the same trip even though he is talking about the E62......

"...the Nokia.ca site stated they were compatible with my phone. The speakers came with an AD-50 adapter to connect the 3.5mm speakers or headsets to the 2.5mm adapter of the E62. When I plug in the adapter, the Phone says "Enhancement not supported" Is there some sort of firmware upgrade or software update I can apply/install so that the adapter is recognized? Is there something to configure on the phone? "

"Thank you for e-mailing the Nokia Care Contact Center. We understand that when you connect your the Nokia Mini Speakers MD-4 and the Nokia OEM 2.5mm to 3.5mm Stereo Adaptor AD-50 to your Nokia E62 device, the phone displays "Enhancement not supported". John, to better assist you, it is necessary to research this issue, to obtain additional information. Please allow 5-7 business days to receive our information and respond to your inquiry. Thank you for your time and patience."

I suspect they are going to come back and say the AD-50 doesn't work with the E62 because it needs a three ring connector not two (which the AD-50 has).

The AD-50 has just 3 electrical connections, but is intended to adapt ordinary headphones to work with Nokia 2.5mm headset sockets which have 4 electrical connections, and so I would think that it ought to work. This is precisely what the Maplins adapter I bought does.

Thumbs up Nokia AD-50 Adapter works!

Thanks jah for the AD-50 tip.

I bought one on e-Bay, and plugged it in. Can definitely attest that it works great on my E90+Bose QC-2 Headphone combo. One other plus point is that the radio application still works as well (ie. the phone doesn't complain that the antenna is missing) and I get great STEREO FM.

The MP3 Music player quality is great, would love to be able to crank up the volume a little more than is possible... but hey...

I'm lovin' it.

Regards
Sudipta

Hi friends,
I have few doubts. It this AD50 durable enough? Is the sound stereo?

Thanks.
