  1. How do I connect headphones to my Game Boy Advance SP?

    Before Installing Headphones:
    • To use headphones with the Game Boy Advance SP, you will need to have the Headphone Adapter. Please note, any headphones with a 3.5mm jack, which is standard, will work with the Game Boy Advance SP Headphone Adapter.
    • Before use, be sure to set the volume slider to a low setting.

    To install the Headphones

    1. Insert the Headphone Adapter into the EXT 2 port, on the top of the Game Boy Advance SP.
    2. Insert the headphone jack from the headphones into the connector on the end of the Headphone Adapter.
  2. The manual says that I have to use Nintendo headphones? Is this true?

    The text in the manual refers to the use of Nintendo headphones in conjunction with the Nintendo e-Reader.

    • With the e-Reader: When using an e-Reader, we only recommend the use of licensed Nintendo headphones. For the Game Boy Advance SP, the Game Boy Advance SP-specific headphones are available. For the original Game Boy Advance, licensed headphones are no longer available. We recommend against using unlicensed headphones with the e-Reader due to possible radio frequency interference.

    • Without the e-Reader: When not using an e-Reader, the use of any standard headphones is fine. When playing the Game Boy Advance SP with standard headphones, you will also need to purchase the Headphone Adapter.
