Need help! Nokia earphones not working on other devices :(

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone smily_headphones1.gif

I'm new to these audio connector stuff like 2.5mm and 3.5mm things and i really need some help here!

Okay here it goes currently i have my Nokia E7-00 stock earphones with a bulit in button that you can click to i believe to answer calls? not sure myself. but it doesn't seems to work well with my devices such as Galaxy Note and PSP plus PC too frown.gif.

All i can hear is instruments in the music no vocal or anything. Or sometimes singing in the bathroom effect. when I plugged in this Nokia stock earphones.
I wonder why it doesn't works on other devices such as Galaxy Note, PSP or PC? except the Nokia phone itself. Can someone educate me with this?

I have another stock earphones which are from Samsung and it works fine on all of my devices PSP, Note and PC. The downside is frown.gif Samsung stock earphones are not good at all. Since there's no bass. Strange though both of them are 3.5mm and one of them works on all devices and the other one doesn't.

I know Nokia stock earphones has better quality since i tested with some music on the E7-00 in the past and it sounded really good with bass effect.

The reason why i am using the Nokia earphones is because i would like to use it on my other devices such as PSP,Note and PC and it has better audio quality then Samsung stock earphones.

That's because Nokia used a diferent (and older, not used anymore) TRRS standard as you can see here:

You can press the button (and use some tape or something to keep it pressed) and, it'll sound just fine.
