apple earphone inline microphone problem

3 replies 154 views Edited Feb 2, 2013

i just bought new earphone, my old ones crapped out on me... they are the new earphones for the iphones.... i actually like how they feel and sound, however, since they have an inline mic, they disable the vitas mic... is there anyway to still use the vita mic, while wearing the apple earphones?

No.  If you are using a headset, which is what earphones with a microphone is; then the Vita's internal mic is automatically disabled. There is no way to change that behavior. If the Vita microphone and speakers, and a headset microphone were active at the same time, feedback could easily result in damage to the Vita speakers.

for future reference, for anyone that wants to know a work around to this, if you have a splitter, you can plug it into the vita and plug in any earphone with a mic, and it should allow you to use the vitas mic :smileyhappy:
