It is a three conductor stereo plug. The third conductor being used to key the mic. I compared it to the earpods that came with my iphone - looks the same. The iphone has an mic, answer/hangup, pause/unpause button that uses the third conductor. The scanner is not wired for nor does it use the third conductor. If you can use the ipod/iphone earbuds with your scanner you can use this mic with no ill effects. I've been using my mic with my scanner for months with no problems. Keying it does nothing.
