Can I use my iPhone earbuds as MacBook Pro headset, probably with an adapter?

Contrary to some, I actually quite like my iPhone earbuds. In fact, I use them in combination with my MacBook Pro whilst at work.
Since I use voip applications like Skype quite often, I'm becoming annoyed with the built-in microphone of my laptop.
Is it possible to use the microphone part of the headset on my laptop? I guess I need some kind of splitter adapter to split the line-in and line-out to the specific ports on my laptop. Do these exist? Or can I built it myself? I'd need a jack that accepts the 4 parts of the earbud plug so I can keep stereo sound and the mic working. Where can I find this?
