Hi All,

After a lot of going through message boards and review websites I decided to go for the Audio Technica ATH-ANC7B Noise Cancelling Headphones. They seem to provide way more value for money than the BOSE QC15. I haven't ordered them yet so if anybody wants to provide a different opionion please do so.

My main questions is rather if a cheapo microphone adapter like these will impact the quality of the sound I get from my iPhone:

The reason for this is that I travel a lot (hence the NC headphones) but when I am not in a plane I would like to be able to use the headphones while calling. From what I understand the ATH-ANC7B does not come with a microphone cable..

Thanks in advance

Probably not. It looks like the device is passive with respect to the headphones.
