Default A shot in the dark (Mic issue)

I'm no where near qualified to place input on ROM development but I did have a random thought.

Is it possible that the Mic issue with most KitKat ROMs, could be caused/fixed/related with the headset jack?

I remember hearing somewhere that random occurrences of mics not working when a headset that wasn't made for your device was used and taken out, that it may cause the device to not recognize the removal and therefore not switch back to the mic.

Like I said, im sure it's not that simple, but hey, it's a shot in the dark.
