Do stereo headphones without microphones work with the PS Vita?

Yes they will.. – 5pike Jul 23 '13 at 13:57
I've been using an Apple iPod headphone on my Vita for years. It works. – Nolonar Jul 23 '13 at 14:52
Thanks guys. I guess I was being paranoid! – garrettendi Jul 23 '13 at 14:53

Anything that is a standard 3.5mm jack headphone will work on the PS Vita; it's a standard output and will work with mono/stereo headphones/speakers that use that port.

Moron question, but I assume "standard 3.5mm jack" extends to the same kind of headphones you might have used on Walkman players long ago? – garrettendi Jul 23 '13 at 14:46
@garrettendi yeah, the little tiny round ports with a single hole, as opposed to micro/mini/USB ports or XLR ports – Ben Brocka Jul 23 '13 at 14:50
Thanks Ben, I know that was a moron question to ask but I wanted to be sure I wouldn't damage my Vita – garrettendi Jul 23 '13 at 14:51
