    I don't think so. I have read that a headphone jack mic will work.

    Do we even know if the headphone jack will accept input signals (a mic)?

    Jacks that are on phones are wired to accept input and output, but it is entirely possible that B&N never intended that jack to do anything other than send audio out.

    Has anyone here actually used it as a mic jack, or is it all 'i read it somewhere'...not slighting Carbira, as I have read it would work too (probably the same place) but I haven't actually spoke with someone that has used it themselves.

    From what I've read of the tear downs the headset jack is supports audio out only.

    See, this seems WAY more likely...its just like the speaker jack on the back of your PC.

    On a side note: My Altec Lansing 2.1 system on my PC has an Aux In jack on the back of the sub...and works AWESOME for my NC audio while sitting here at my desk.
