I bought one of these tiny wireless headsets,

Quite amazing, it does work as advertized, at least with my cellular phone.
However I would like to adapt its 2.5mm stereo jack (3 contacts for ground,
speaker output and microphone input ) to the 3.5mm stereo jacks on my laptop
computer (for Internet chatting and Skyping). So I need some kind of

Is there such an adapter on the market?
I did some Googling but no luck so far. I would prefer a prebuilt adapter
otherwise I'll have to do it myself but in that case it wouldn't be as
compact.

You don't say what country you're in, but Radio Shack should have
a bin full of them. You plug the 2.5mm plug into a hole in the back
end of the adapter, and the rest of it is a 3.5mm plug. You might
want to check for "polarity", i.e., whether the mic and speaker
contacts are different for your dongle and your laptop, in which case
you'll have to do some hacking anyway.

Good Luck!

Sure. If there are standards, there's an adapter go go between
them. That's the great thing about standards, there are so many to
choose from (and so many people willing to take your money).

In any case, here is a 3.5mm plug to 2.5mm jack (I think that's
what you want) for $5: http://www.search.com/search?tag=se.fd.box.main.search&q=2.5mm+++3.5mm+++adapter Here is its reverse (also$5):

Did you try; "2.5mm + 3.5mm + adapter"? ;-)

I did the reverse - took my old headset from internet chat days and
modified it to fit my 2.5mm cellphone.

Bought a cheapo cellphone headset from the 99cent store, hacked off the

There's a ground, a mic line and a speaker line... trial and error,

Ok, go from the 2.5mm plug to a 3.5mm jack, then get a 3.5mm 'Y' cable.
