Default Just incase nobody knew about this

You know those noise cancelling headphones we all got, well as you know they have a mic on each earpiece. well if you put them in your ears and then into the phone a little icon comes up in task bar saying "configure accessory". click on that and instead of headset, choose microphone and then if you record video it records in true stereo and with less hiss than handset alone.
Basically, your headset works as if it is that 30 mic attachment.

Nice info! I only knew it has a mic for taking calls. It's good that it can be used to record video as well. Thanks!

Actually not ALL of us have them, as atleast in Finland we got SmartBand SWR10 instead of the noise cancelling headphones. But nice find nonetheless
