Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter is retailing for S$20.90 and has a feature that most audio splitter doesn’t have (even the overpriced Belkin Audio Splitter), which is the ability for one of the two connected earphones to support microphone.
An audio jack splitter allows two person to share music from just one device each using their own earphones. Moshi did a very good implementation by allowing one of the earphones to be the master (the one with the microphone icon) and hence the ability to use the microphone (if your earphones comes with it) to answer any incoming voice/Skype calls. Of course, if the other party’s earphones are still plugged in, he or she will be able to listen to your conversation.
The Moshi’s audio jack splitter supports Apple’s 3-button control for both connected earphones, but only the master audio jack can increase/decrease the volume and play/pause/switch the music tracks!
I am also very impressed with the build of the audio jack splitter, it is encased in aluminium, giving it a more solid and premium feel to it.
If you are considering to get an audio jack splitter, please do consider the Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter and not the Belkin Audio Splitter!

Where To Buy
You can get the Moshi 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter from physical stores such as EpiCentre or Infinite (Apple Shops at Best Denki). Alternatively, you can also get it online from Ban Leong’s eStore.
Notice on the right there is a headphones icon and a microphone icon, that means that the audio input supports both microphone and headphones while the left audio input only supports headphones.
