jon crows, wondering if this is something that you are looking for. Check on here and of course right here. This should be all the information needed, if you are going to build your own cable. So, yes you can use your old headphone jack, if you know how to use a meter to determine which cable goes to which point of the jack. If you Google it, you'll find a few good images. hope this helps, good luck.

:-) jon crows, what you are looking for is called a TRRS connector. You can get them at places like this and many others. I have just looked at my Apple headphone and mine do have the TRRS, probably because they are for some new iDevices. The ones for my older iPod indeed only have three contacts. Let us know how it worked out, good luck.
