The answer is yes. The other answer is just trim the collar of the adapter. I did this with a cheap micro to HDMI cable and it took about 30 seconds. It went from not working to working just that quick.
Thinking about picking up a Toshiba Dynadock Docking Station for $130 bucks. Seems pricey but you can run up to 2 secondary monitors and all your peripherals off a single USB 3.0 connection. One plug and you are golden to run 2 monitors, mouse, keyboard, external speakers, etc.
