This is a 3.5mm TRRS SMD audio jack. TRRS connectors are the audio-style connectors that you see on some phones, MP3 players and development boards. TRRS stands for "tip, ring, ring, sleeve," which reflects the fact that, unlike a standard stereo connector, this actually has three conductors and a ground. Some devices use the extra conductor for a microphone (like hands-free headsets) or to carry a video signal (like in some MP3/MP4 players).
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

It's rare and unusual component. But for connecting of earphone with microphone (i.e. for telephone set) or for connect a "three ways" cable is unbeatable and indispensable. What about a connection of tree channels audio components (bass, middle and treble)?

Just in case someone else is needing to interface to "standard" earbud/microphone sets, I'll share what I tracked down in the way of specs: from the plug (earbuds) side and from the jack (phone) side.
No dimensional drawing?
I put just put one up for you guys, cheers!
I believe there is an eagle footprint for this in the sparkfun library. There is a dimension tool in eagle so you could use that to get length and width. Wouldn't help you for height.
The photo is fairly orthogonal (front edge ~219px, back edge ~212px) - I'd say the height is about 5.2mm. This all depends on the package's outlines being reasonably accurate for the package, though - often a package outline is a bit larger than the actual dimensions. As usual, a datasheet would be nice(r) :)
how can I connect it to this bluetooth module http://www.elecfreaks.com/wiki/index.php?title=File:BLK-MD-SPK-B-G.jpg so that I can make a handsfree with microphone ?
Any idea where I can get a through-hole version of this one?
