I just got the Westone UM3X recently. I like the phones, but this isn't post isn't about them.
I've been having a problem with phone calls. When I plug any other headphones into my iPhone 3G, I can still make phone calls -- that is, I can hear the other party to the call through the headphones and I can hold my iPhone up to my mouth and speak into the microphone and it would work fine.
With the UM3X, I can still hear the other party through the headphones, but for some reason it seems that the microphone on my iPhone doesn't work them I try to talk -- the other party can't hear me at all. So now I have to unplug the headphones, take one out of my ear, and use the phone normally.
Now I know that one option is to get one of those microphone adapters. That's not my question here. My question is, why don't these headphones work the same as any other headphones? Has anyone else had this issue?
