I just replaced my Samsung Note9 with a new Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and now I no longer have a headphone jack. I don't use it all the time, but when I want to use my phone to listen to hi-res music and use my headphone amp I'm no longer able to. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to a quality adapter, or if they are pretty much all the same and I should just get a cheap one? I was looking at one from Anker, as I've used their products in the past and have been happy.

I’d buy the Apple one.

@its phillip - Sorry, but this is incorrect.
USB-C to 3.5mm has 3-4 different flavours and as expected Apple's one is only fits Apple devices. The issue this isn't just a wire, but there is actual DAC inside that tiny cable.

@GlocksRock - Go with your gut feeling and get an Anker adapter, but make sure it is fitting for Samsung devices, like this one:

I was just wondering how a digital signal could be converted to analog without a dac....but a dac might be an idea....what's your headphone amp make/model?
