Default Headphone adapter i got at Best Buy. Not bad

Please Login to Remove!

(did a search and couldn't find anything on this)
so i've been thinking about getting one of those Seido adapters to use regular headphones with my pearl. but i hate shopping online and figured i would check the usual spots before going online. i found this at Best Buy. its pretty legit. got the pause/play/answer/hang up button, decent phone sound quality, and the cord is retractable.

sorry, i meant to save the packaging but forgot. the name on it is "Just Wireless". it was $15.98 (which is pretty close to the Seido one with shipping).

the odd thing is, the headphones that come with the pearl (and the other models i'm assuming) has 3 bands on the plug, and this adapter only has 2. i figured it wouldnt work for phone calls or maybe the button wouldn't work, but everything checks out.

That's because the headphones that come with the pearl are for listening to audio from it (MP3s) in stereo where as what you bought is designed for just one channel and a mic. The 4 connections on the OEM plug are for left, right, mic, and ground, the new one just uses left, mic and ground.

if your saying that the adapter isn't broadcasting "stereo", it is. thats what i'm saying is odd. it IS in stereo, and the mic works.

Well, it may be playing through both left and right speakers, but that doesn't mean it's playing in stereo. It's probably mono, but on 2 speakers.

Exactly, the audio source is monaural, there is no way to get seperate left and right audio along with a microphone source from only a 3 wire connection.

don't mean to come off like a jerk or something, but i have a recording studio in my home and i know the definition of stereo seperation. there IS two seperate channels. all i'm saying is one band on the plug must be shared.
