I used 30 pin to USB and 3.5mm male cable for older iPhones. I tried a lighting to 30 pin adapter off eBay to use the same cable. But the off brand adapters will rarely work with 30 pin adapters and same happened to me. It would charge but won't carry audio signals. I know for sure an apple lighting to 30 pin adapter will work with the cheaper version of 30 pin to USB and 3.5mm cables. But $30 is a bit on expensive side for an adapter.
