Hello, this is my first post here. This looks like a website where people really know what they are talking about, so here i go.
I want to change my stock smartphone headset, but i want to keep the mic+button to answer calls and change/pause music. So i need a earbud with this features, but as my smartphone is "old" (Xperia neo, 2011) it isn't CTIA, but OMTP and the majority of headsets with mic won't work.
So i bought a very cheap adapte (the only one i could find...) like this:
(not exactly this one)
And i pretend to use it with a nice quality earbud to have both the controls and a good sound. So I'm planning to buy the ATH CKM500, since it have an extension and i can just use the upper part with my adapter and be happy. Now my two questions are:
1- Will the sound quality be significantly reduces by this cheap adapter? I think the answer is no, since 99% of the quality of the sound is related to the speakers, am i right?
2- Is the ATH CKM 500 a good earbud to buy?
