I'm 99% certain the micro connector is shown on the far left in this image.

It's not the same as the one on the far left. That's the older type Micro USB. The newer Micro USB Type B is the same width as Mini USB, but a little thinner. The giveaway are two little "locking tabs" on the bottom flat side for the newer Micro USB Type B.

I have some older devices that use (some digicams and a bluetooth headset). The newer Micro USB Type B is pretty stupid because it's not really that much smaller than the old Mini USB. But it's been adopted as a standard charging connector for phones internationally, so get used to it. At least until they make something else "standard".

Newer Micro USB B (smaller connector on the right, shown with flat side up, notice the two locking tabs)

To make things even more confusing, here's the oddball Micro USB Type A.

To be honest, I'm not surprised. On paper at least, nothing can touch it as a portable IEM amp.

ed, i think the amazon kindle has a micro usb...not sure if it's the newer type B, though...do you happen to know?

i also think the mophie battery cases for the iphone have micro USB plugs...not sure about the version, though. i should probably check in case i do need the cable from justin...
