    If you are frustrated that your sweet High End headphones don't work in the iPhone's jack, go out to Radio Shack and get a 12 inch long 3.5mm (1/8th inch) stereo jack cable that has the in line volume control - I bought mine a while ago but they can't be more than 5-10 bucks. Shave off just enough of the black plastic at the male end (that goes into your headphone jack) to make it fit, and voila - you have an adapter that sounds great, has a built in volume adjustment so you can leave your iPhone in your pocket, it's cheap, and you don't have to cut up your actual headphones, possibly voiding their warranty.

    you could just buy the Belkin adapter for 10 dollars...and not shave off anything......

    Any thoughts on the possibility of Sony and others following up with compatible headphone/microphone sets?

    Of course you could, but I was just responding to the fact that so many people dislike the idea of a hard (albeit slightly flexible) plastic thing sticking out of the top of the iPhone - this solution just looks like a small extension of your headphone cord

    I believe the belkin adaptor has a microphone.
