Does the MBA stereo out work as a mic jack?

    Pretty simple, the iPhone, new iPod touch and classic can use their headphone jack as a mic in with the new iPhone headphones for voice recording... can the MBA?

    No - I tried this yesterday using Garageband. inserted my iphone headphones into the headphone jack. the microphone on them is not recognized.

    It is not in the Rev B MBA unfortunately, just the new MB and MBP.

    I was a bit disappointed too. I thought it would be included in everything going forward. I would guess that it is like the trackpad, Apple just didnt want to change any more components then they had to when they refreshed the Air.
