Thanks for clarifying, now I understand. Slightly smiling Face

 

There should be USB C to 3,5 mm adapters available. I'm afraid we don't have any ourselves though so you may want to check with local or online retailers for that. Using one together with a pair of 3,5 mm headphones would not be the same as using a pair USB C enabled headphones though so the sound quality would likely be the same as if you connect to the phone normal headphone jack.

Hi @fetch93, sorry for the late reply here.

 

Audio via USB is supported by the Xperia XZ. Just make sure that you choose to detect USB device after connecting one to the phone. Slightly smiling Face

 

Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Re: Xperia xz USB C as audio headphones?

Sure. If I want to use headphones through USB c then I need a adapter like the iPhones. They have the lighting connection and the other the 3,5mm for headphones.

I mean if there exist a kabel for headphones with one side 3,5mm and the other USB c then I dont need a adapter.

If anyone of your team can German :

Ich suche ein Kabel mit den enden USB C und den normalen klingen Anschluss damit ich keinen Adapter brauche, da man das Kabel bei meinen Kopfhörern einfach rausstecken kann.

I bought these two for my XZ PREMIUM and both work like a charm, just plug and play:

XIIVIO Audio Adaptor Type C to 3.5 mm

HTC USB-C Digital to 3.5mm adaptor

Re: Xperia xz USB C as audio headphones?

Im sure everyone knows what that guy is asking...You have earphones and the end plug is not a 3.5mm headphone jack but an USB Type C cable. 

Now, does Sony xa1 support usb c earphones or no?
