    i bought a pair of monster beat studio and it comes with a wire to use with your iphone. one side has the 2 prong jack and the other 3 prong jack. i put the side with the 3 prongs into the actual headphone instead of the phone like it was suppose to. They are the same size one just has 3 rings the other has 2. would this by any chance ruin the headphones i only did it once. not like it was a struggle to put it in our out. not sure if the 3 rings vs 2 mean anything.

    No, it won't damage anything, but the remote won't work unless the connector with the extra ring is plugged into your iPhone.

    The extra ring allows your iPhone to use the remote and mic built into the wire. The tip and first ring are for left and right audio channels, respectively.

    Love the Beats Studios. Awesome headphones.

    Yes. The connectors are the same size and length. I plug the extra-ringed connector into devices that don't support the extra ring all the time. If you're still getting left and right audio, and the remote works when plugged into a device that supports it, you didn't damage anything.

    The White Beats Studios. I tried the Solos and didn't like them. (They sounded OK, but hurt my ears after wearing them for a while.) The Studios are perfect though.
