Recording with headphones as a microphone

What do I need to do to record audio with my headphones as a microphone? Has anyone tried it out yet? How good is the audio quality?

you'd just have to make a connector to convert the stereo jack plug to an xlr to go into a mic preamp. I've done it before with an old style earbud one. It sounded very lo-fi but it was perfect for one particular song..
