Known issue, Pandora was in development before or around the time iPhone barely came out, the standard used on every other phone at the time had the ground ring in a normal sane place. However Apple decided to swap the Mic and Ground rings to force iPhone users to only buy their standard of headsets. Eventually due to the popularity of the iPhone all other manufacturers swapped to the Apple Standard.Hi
Does anyone else have this issue? Headphones with a mic button and vol control produce a muddy sound unless you hold down the mic button!
Driving me mad
pretty sure, for a while many referred to the Old standard as the Nokia standard and the apple. Think when Samsung starting using Apple's style everyone else fell in line.Are you sure they actually swapped and did not just start to use ICs that could sense the order of contacts and switch around the lines, like the Pyra?
