    I've been searching for, but cannot find an adapter for a computer headset (3.5mm stereo + 3.5mm mic) to the Droid 3.5mm stereo+mic headset. It seems like it should be easy to make.

    I have a nice computer headset on my desk that seems like it would work nicely for listening to music as well as making phone calls.

    Has anybody seen such an adapter or have better search skills than me and care to look?

    I have an old iPhone headset and it works fine for calls. That should be a good start

    The point is that I already have a headset that I really like. It's comfortable, blocks external noise well, and has good sound. I'd like to use it if possible rather than buying another one that is probably not as nice.

    Also not cheap. However, it's the first thing I've seen that might work. Thanks!

    Are you good with wires? If so, you could buy one single-channel 3.5mm cable, stereo cable, and stereo+mic 4-wire cable and splice the wires together. The mic and stereo cables have to have at least one female end though.

    Edit: Or you could get this, although you'd have to use the in-line mic.

    I was looking for that but couldn't find it anywhere. Yeah, that'd work perfectly.
