    So my aux inport is damaged so i cant listen to music with headphones, so i bought a usb-c to aux but the music still comes out the speakers.

    Does a usb-c to aux only work on pc/laptop?

    There are two different types of USB C-to-earphone adapters. One takes the analog audio from the phone and feeds it to the earphone jack, the other takes digital audio from the USB C jack and converts it to analog audio first, then feeds that to the headphone jack. Using one type on a phone that uses the other type won't work. Since the A5 has a DAC built in (it has an earphone jack), it needs the "just feeds the analog signal to the earphone jack" kind. Maybe. An OTG adapter goes from USB C to USB A - so where was he plugging the earphones into? From what he said, the Sennheiser has a DAC in it, so it needs a plain USB C to USB A adapter, not a USB C to headphone (3.5mm jack) adapter. But headphones without the adapter would need a USB C to USB A adapter, then a DAC (what he calls the USB sound adapter), and I don't know if a Pixel 2 earphone adapter would work. (The phone probably doesn't feed analog audio to the USB C connector.) And they're close to $20, so it's a bit pricey to try and find out that it doesn't work.
