iPhone Gripe: Headphone Issues

My first complaint about the otherwise luxurious Ableplanet Noise Canceling Headphones I reviewed this week was the fact that they don't work with my new iPhone. Why? The iPhone has a recessed headphone port and requires an adapter. Sure, the iPhone ships with a regular white Apple iPhone Stereo Headset, but what if you want to take it up a notch and use a more comfortable and sound-focused set? You are in trouble. If you plan on using a third party set you'll have to buy an adapter like this one from Belkin, $10, which lets you plug in to the recessed port. Of course, that means you have to plug one end of the adapter into the audio jack of your iPhone and the other to your existing headset. A tad clunky, no?
