base = ground 
speaker left  (internal impedance 33R) to ground. (+jackinsert detection)
speaker right (internal impedance 33R) to ground.
tip = mic electret condenser type, to ground. 
      bias (power for mic) 2K2 from +3.3v(wolfson codec) 
      (+HoldButton shortcircuit to ground)

Due to the internal 33R resistors, any low impedance headset will not work (or 
only low sound). I guess 40R should be minimum impedance for the speakers.
