As I said, I had it apart and didn't see a mic. I'll take it apart again.

It has been explained already! The thing is an adapter that connects a certain Sennheiser headset to a sound card. It uses only one ground for mic and the mono headphone. The pot is the volume ctrl for the headphone. The switch is used to mute the mic.
I was using these things for an intercom my company makes. It bugged me that I could not use the little chip amp in that intercom (TDA 7050) in BTM because the headphone had one side grounded.
So, no mic in the gadget. Hardly any use without the headset.

Well, all righty then! Thanks for your detailed description. What kept throwing me off was the use of stereo plugs on both mic and headphone. Now I see only one non-ground connection was used, either tip or ring. Thanks again.
