^infact, yes they are...its the same principles...

headphones can be used as microphones...

just like any piezzo can be used to make an electro-acoustic guitar (my friend managed to do that using a piezzo he found in a alarm-clock )

Why would you plug headphones into a powered signal? Speaker Ext. sends actual power to power a cab.

Maybe by mistake?

Some headphones do work 'backwards', as do piezo transducers, as Julvegetal pointed out.

well since my amp doesnt have a headphone jack why not just plug it into the speaker extension, sound still comes out of the amp but its louder on the headphones and doesnt bug everyone else in the house. =)

Why not plug it into the speaker ext? Because it will probably blow the headphones. Hurt the amp. Pretty much ruin stuff. The speaker ext requires a certain amount of ohms. The headphones probably don't match.

if you have a computer microphone, plug it in the headphones slot, you'll hear sound
