Where is the mic located on these earpods?

I want to use these to record phone calls off my landline phone for my research project, and save the audio to my iPad. Is the mic located in the actual earpiece, or down by the controls on the cord?

    On the latest earpods, the one the comes with the 6s and 6s plus, the mic is on the actual earpiece and they respond to left and right channels. I can't find any documentation about this though except from a patent that Apple submitted.

  • To be precise it is located at the back of the controls on the cord if you look closely you can see the mic at the back of the volume controls on the cord.
