Play your Galaxy S II on an iPod/iPhone dock with a Male micro USB to female Apple 30 pin adapter

Posted on Dec 30 2011 - 1:44pm by Brian

It seems like multiple times I’ve found myself at a social gathering where we need a DJ to play some tunes, but the only set of speakers in the house are Apple iPod docking station. If it weren’t for Apple’s pesky, proprietary 30 pin connector, we could simply hook up our Android devices to all those iHomes out there. Luckily, I’ve found the solution for you (and me):

After combing through numerous forums (both Android and Apple), I finally stumbled upon the dockBoss+ by CableJive. This cable system allows you to finally hook up your Android device tho all those iHomes that you or your friends already have–no need to buy a separate docking/speaker station specifically for your Android device.

The dockBoss+ is composed of a male micro USB and 3.5mm stereo plug for your Android phone, leading down to to female Apple 30 pin connector that hooks up to your docking station. This setup will allow you to charge your phone while simultaneously playing music. The setup will set you back a cool $30, but its definitely cheaper than replacing your iHome.

If you fancy yourself a DIYer, take a look at Chris Moor’s guide on creating your very own iPod dock adapter. Using an iPod dock connector, 3.5mm stereo plug, micro USB connector and some Polymorph (the white molding you see holding everything together). Although it helps to have a little electrical engineering know how, Mr. Moor has nicely diagrammed all the necessary wiring/soldering and the end result (with a Motorola Droid) looks quite spiffy:

I hope one of these two solutions can do the trick for all you Apple to Android converts! If you guys know of any other ways to hook up your Android phone to an Apple docking station, please let us know in the comments below!
