Sounds easy right? WRONG! I have just bought a pair of Beat Solos by Dr. Dre and I have no idea how to set it up I suppose? I need to to work as my headphones and microphone as well. Apparently when I get 1 I lose the other. Anyone know how to set this up?

You will need something like this http://www.amazon.com/GTMax-3-5mm-Female-Adapter-Computers/dp/B0046FMRGA/ref=sr_1_66?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1308871426&sr=1-66

That headphone jack has 3 rings and it needs to separate the mic and headphone line to two lines.

apple gear has mic/phone on single cable with 4 points on the 3.5 or 2.5mm end

also look before you buy and for the cost of these phones you would assume they come with cables for everything you want to connect it too. alas that appears to not be the case.

But does this work for all phones or just iphone?. I think the iphone has a slightly different pin configurations than the other phones.
