Joel, I noticed you posted a link for the Belkin iPhone headphone adapter yesterday. I've been in contact with Griffin as I was waiting for theirs. And it's now for sale on their site (starting today!).

They show both the black and white model but they are only selling the black one right now (I've contacted them to make that clear on the site).

Griffin is selling theirs for $10, plus shipping, putting it in the $13 range. That's not too bad as these things go, but I'm still too cheap to miss with it, not only because I think it's too expensive, but because it's one more thing to lose. (Yes, I'm that guy that will drop $600 on a phone, but not $13 on an accessory.)

Besides, what I'm really looking for is something that adds an extra line with a microphone, so that I can use any set of headphones I wish—iPod headphones don't even stay in my ears when I'm sitting still, let alone moving—along with the phone functions. I'd maybe pay $13 for that.

Here's what I did to my headphones to get them into the iPhone's goofy little headphone jack: trimmed the outside plastic with a box knife, then sealed the whole mess up with a tiny piece of heat shrink tubing.
