    can anybody please explain to me what is it? is it that we won't need any converters to use a normal 3.5mm jacks?

    Flush means that the contacts are right at the top without there being any inset contacts. Present gen iphone and ipod touches have a this gap at the top so that anything with a wide bottom where the contacts are has trouble fitting in the hole (you know how the white bit of lead goes in slightly as well as the metal plug.

    Anyway I think the headphones have to be pretty bad before such 'compatiblity' issues raise their head. It's not like some totally bespoke connection like with Bang and Olufson. I have grado headphones and they have no problem interfacing with the socket
