I have a set of headphones that have controls specifically designed for the iPhone, that is, they send signals through the 3.5mm cable and they are interpreted by the iPhone. I would like to connect them to my laptop and continue to use their controls. Does such an adapter exist? If not, I will make a new post on electronics.SE about building such a device.

Regarding that last bit, editing it out and asking for instructions instead of opinion on Electronics.SE might be the way to go. – Karan Mar 8 '13 at 9:29
Good point. I'll remove it and make a new post if I don't get an answer to this one in a week. – Seanny123 Mar 9 '13 at 12:36
