So you picked up a pair of those cheap E2C’s– awesome– but now you have to figure out how the hell you’re actually going to use them with your iPhone. Of all it’s quirks, the recessed headphone jack is the one thing that I can’t seem to justify to critics (or myself, for that matter.)
Sure, you could splurge and pick up one of Shure’s Music Phone Adapters and keep the fantastic talk and control features of the default earbuds, but that means spending more on the adapter than the earbuds themselves.
For the rest of us cheapskates, there is the Helium Digital headphone adapter, selling for a miniscule four dollars shipped. The only catch is that they’re in such high demand that there is a 2 week wait to place an order. [via]
