Can you switch between the mic on the earphones and the microphone on the iPhones whilst using the earphones?

In other words, I want to disable the mic on these earphone (while keeping all the other functions, if not, just the speakers) so I can just use the microphone on the iPhone. I like the external mic funtion but sometimes it can get in the way of some of the apps I use such as Smule's Ocarina and Leaf Trombone.

  • no you cannot. not until apple allows it. the iphone (or ipod) recognizes the new mic is there so it runs the way it was programmed, to use the new input source until it is not there
