Using headphones as microphones.

Earbud Microphone
Probably a bit late, but I never knew this, and it seemed to work. Quite amazed by this, but just a general question. Does it damage the IEMs/Headphones in anyway at all?

I doubt it - I suppose you could collapse the diaphragm. It's cool but the technology for speakers and moving coil microphones is exactly the same.

Doubtful. Unless you put it too extreme use (blowing hard, or like), and then I suppose a "real" microphone would have struggled as well.
