Default Seidio Audio Adapter with Built-in Microphone and Answer Button Available!

Please Login to Remove!



This adaptor converts the 4 conductor jack to a 3.5mm standard stereo headphone jack and includes a built-in microphone and answer button. This adaptor will allow you to use the built-in microphone for multiple reasons: to make calls, to use in an application (such as taking notes), or as a voice recorder/voice commander or skype.

Without unplugging it from your phone, this adaptor will allow you to have phone conversations. And with its integrated one touch button and built-in microphone, you will be able to answer and hang up on calls and then immediately return to your music.

The cable is approximately 10 cm long and comes with a standard 2.5 mm jack on one end that converts to a 3.5 mm female jack on the other end, allowing you to directly plug in any stereo device that has a standard 3.5mm audio jack, such as your favorite pair of headphones or headset.

Maybe I'm totally missing something here but I've always wondered, Why is the cord so short? I thought about this adapter but haven't figured out why such a short cord? Doesn't it put the mic too far away?

I sure figured someone would have an obvious answer to this question. I know I'm just missing something. Anyone?

Speakerphones work without being close to your mouth. They don't work well but they do work...

Here's what I want. The Pearl is in it's holster on my hip playing mp3's with this adapter plugged in and my iPod headphones in my ears. The phone rings. Do I have to pull the BB out of the holster and move the mic to somewhere close to my mouth? Most mics hang 6 inches below the chin or so and work just fine. I'm just trying to figure out how this works. I'm not trying to be hard nosed...I'm just trying to figure out how this adapter works.

John you nailed it. Must hold very close to mouth. While I don't specifically know why I'm assuming it's because with a cord long enough for the mic to be close to your mouth + a standard headphone cord connected you would have ~5-6 feet of cord. That would be undesirable as well IMHO.

Just received mine yesterday. I didn't specifically buy it for the phone features but figured I might as well get this one over the standard adapter (just because).

With a holstered BB at the hip, I don't think you'll find the mic on this suitable for phone conversations. It works but pretty poorly and that's in a quiet room. It's about like a (bad) speakerphone IMO which shouldn't be surprising given how far the mic is from you in this situation. My testing was done using voicemail at work to record and playback messages. It might be a bit different with a live person on the other end. I've generally found our voicemail's audio quality to be good enough to clearly and accurately reproduce the human voice but YMMV.

Extra cord length could help in placing the mic closer but it would also need a clip or else the mic would instead be at your knees. I suspect that Seidio also didn't want to make a tangled mess with a long cord and ended up using this length as a compromise. I'm not sure exactly how long the cords are on my Ety ER-6i's but they're close to 3' already on their own...

The button works well. You can answer/end calls, mute/unmute, play/pause music, and activate voice dial with it. Despite the poor audio quality voice dial seems to work well with the mic so far.
