Yeah I've been having some trouble. The adaptor from my last Huawei phone won't work with it. Apparently the USB C adaptor standards are different across manufacturers so that's why some of them won't work.
I do have this USB C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter
that allows me to charge my phone and listen to my earphones at the same time.
But even with that I've found some issues. I can charge or listen to the earphones but not at the same time.
The workaround I've found is that I need to plug out the earphones from the adaptor, plug in the adaptor into the phone, go to the USB settings, plug the earphones back in and switch the "USB Controlled by" option from This Device to Phone and then back to This Device to get it to work. My battery does seem to drain though using this adaptor even though I have the charge device option set to no. Didn't have that issue with my last phone.
