GTA: Where to buy USB-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack cable

My nephew has an Essential phone from Koodo and lost the USB-C to 3.5 mm cable adapter. I attached an adapter from a Moto Z but it didn't produce any sound through the headphones. The same adapter works fine with the Moto Z.

Anyone know where I can purchase this cable in the GTA or a link to a compatible unit on eBay or Amazon.ca?

Thanks for reading.

I know it may not be compatible because I remember having an extra adapter from my old moto Z and didn't work when I got the Essential.

Thanks for the link! My nephew has been bugging me for days lol.

Edit: I see that the Apple adapter should work too for $9.99 from Best Buy: https://9to5google.com/2018/11/01/hands ... headphone/

I would recommend the apple adapter, you can find it at any apple store. USB C to 3.5mm adapter, it was for the new ipad pro but I've been using it on my android phones just fine.

Any reason why you can’t use Bluetooth headphones?
It's not for me, it's for my nephew. He has a few wired ear buds that he prefers.

Edit: Apple adapter works perfectly with the Essential.
