How to use my IEMs as a headset?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for an adapter which had a built in mic to be connected between my IEMs and my phone, so that I can use them as a headset.
I've seen a HTC one a while ago, but this was pretty expensive at £20. Anyone got any ideas if there's something cheaper out?

Shure makes one, and Fiio makes an amplifier with a mic and remote too. Not sure how much they would cost where you are.

I had a look, but I couldn't see it... Could you possibly link me to it?

This might sound silly but they wouldn't affect the SQ of my IEMs right?

Unless the cable is really high impedance, there probably would not be a noticeable difference in sound quality.

Cheers. I've realised I forgot to mention that I have an android device and I'll assume those ones you've linked only work with iphones

Oh. But don't one-button remotes work with Android too?

I have no idea, I'll see if I can find out

If you have a friend with an iPhone, just borrow their earphones and test the middle button. The volume up and down buttons will definitely not work.

Ok, I'll ask.
Answering calls will work though, right?

If the middle button works. If it can pause and play music, then it will answer calls. But you will need to test. As I suggested, borrow a friend's iPhone headset and try it on your Android.

I haven't had a chance to test it, but reviews online suggest that the Middle click should work.

I read that article, and the bluetooth adapter is way too expensive for me to get at the moment, so I've been looking into the wired adapters.

Check this out on Amazon:

Belkin Mic with Remote for iPhone

Very similar to the Griffin one mentioned in the article. Most of the complaints are to do with the position of the adapter (I'm fine with a band wrapped over it) and the durability of the connection between the mic bit and the cable - am I right in that putting something over it like some sugru/play doh should fix that problem?

I've been looking online and wanted to know if getting a Female-female coupler and a male-male cable with a mic would work on my phone?
