Now only the volume rocker doesn't work! :)

This cable works like magic, it made headphones with mic that only works for idevices work on my old android phones that doesn't have CTIA. Everything sounded normal to me now, unlike the very hollow feel and wrong sound output when you don't use LU1! However, it will only manage to make your answer button work. So if your headphones have volume controls expect it not to work at all, not a big issue though as this one is made to make the sound output correct and make the microphone work.


This unit is perfect if your phone doesn't support CTIA and if your headphones with mic only have the answer button. Then if your unit have a volume rocker unfortunately it won't work most of the time, but the important part there is you get the correct sound output and get the answer button working!
