Just plug it in...? I'm not understanding why you would have a problem with this. I don't have experience with those headphones so is there something that would prevent you from plugging them in?
Hey! Thanks for the reply
The reason why I am asking this question is because this headphone only has one jack i.e. only for both audio and mic. (it was originally designed for use in iphone). So i was wondering if i could use
this like a gaming headset by attaching some sort of adaptor? or splitter? or some sort like that
Whenever I plug this headphone to my macbook, I can only use it as headphone, not both.
If you buy 2x these and solder (or get someone to solder) these together with the pins connected in parallel (1connects to1 - 2connects to2 and so on), you can couple the beats by dre headsets to the iPhone converter/adapter cable:
(3.5mm 4 Pole In Line Jack Socket)
then all you need is 2x of these 3.5mm jack to jack cables, one for mic in and the other for line out (these connect to the iPhone adapter cable respectively):
(1m - 3.5mm JACK(TO PLUG) MALE HEADPHONE CABLE/LEAD iPOD)
My biggest issue here would be the fact that the iphone as well as blackberry and other phones use a 4 pole headphone plug. The listed adapter above is for splitting headphones and does not mention the mic at all.
but hairystuff is on the right idea.
What about getting one 3 pole headphone extension, chop that bad boy in half
So now you have a plug for the computer for headphones and mic
Now wire those 2 sets of 3 wires into the 4 pole female socket
Yep you could buy 1x 4pole 3.5mm female jack and 2x 3pole 3.5mm male jacks and do that to cut out the iphone headset adapter, I've built similar leads for Yuasa/motorola 2way radios and they seem to work fine. Thanks nukemaster for the wiring digrams.
