Default Cassette Adapter

Ordering a X-Fi2 today.

Sold the old Zen Vision M Yesterday for $75!!

Q - I use a cassette adapter in the car...the headphone jack on the X-Fi2 is 2.5mm...right? Anyone else using a cassette adapter with their X-Fi2? Which one? Any work directly with the 2.5mm jack?

Thanks!

Um, I believe it's 3.5mm, not 2.5mm.
And if it just reads it like any speakers or headphones would then any should work.

No, the headphone jack is 3.5 mm. That's the standard size for a small headphone plug, so I think you meant that.
I'm not using a cassette adapter myself, I have one though, and I am certain that it will also work on the X-Fi2.

Are you sure yours is 2.5 mm??

Chiming in...I too use cassette adapters [from Aiwa and TDK]...all work with every mp3 player I have...the plugs on the adapters I have are 3.5mm standard plugs, just like on all portable headphones I have seen... Except for the headphones made for cell phones like Nokia [which require the 2.5mm plugs]

That's great news...I don't know where I saw that the X-Fi2 used the 2.5mm plug. Thanks for the corrections. I ordered an cig lighter plug powered FM Transmitter device - we're heading out on a week long road trip in a vehicle that doesn't have a cassette deck or an Aux Input. Looking forward to the X-Fi2!

Just wanted to chime in on a cheap transmitter I've been using. I got it off of Meritline for around $10USD and it works great with the xfi2. The cable it comes with is a 2.5mm to 3.5mm converter and it's garbage. If you get a cheap replacement for it though it works great. You can also just use it as an mp3 player and it takes a SD card. Here is a link for anyone interested.
