    I have a Switchcraft 35RAPC4BH3 3.5 mm stereo jack.

    See: http://www.mailsack.org/swcraft.gif

    Clearly, there is going to be a left, right, and ground for a headset
    and a signal and ground for the microphone.

    However, the jack has 5 pins and I'm a little confused as to what they
    correspond to in a typical computer audio environment.

    I think not.
    It has a ground, And 2 switched signal connections.

    If you look at the plug it has a Tip, a small ring and a larger ground.

    The other 2 connections are switched for switching when the plug is
    inserted.

    Thank you for the response. Would it be safe to assume for a
    headset/microphone:

    1 GND
    2 Left
    3 Left Switched
    4 Right Switched
    5 Right

    Regards,
