Different types of earphones

Postby MrXT » Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:56 am

My lenovo a820 only takes the ear phones that came with it any other ones i try i get a distorted voice usually music plays but when people speak its totally distorted and you cant make it out and thats the same when you put those earphones that came with the phone into another device.

I just got a hero 2 tablet and that only takes the earphones from my lenovo phone and not any of my normal earphones which is a problem because i now have no idea what earphones i cant buy that will be compatible with it, so im wondering if there is a system with earphones like with hdmi cables ect hdmi 1.3-1.4 ect because i dont understand why these normal 3.5mm earphones dont all work with each other.

are the earphones that you are using ones with an inline MIC and remote - if so then there are different standards used by different coimpanies

if you get a standard earphones with NO remote or MIC they should work fine

  • Phone: Samsung Galaxy Mini / Huawei G300 (just ordered)
  • Fav App: Strava, IMDB, Jewels
  • Portable Audio: currently none
  • Headphones PC: Brainwavz HM5

The ear phones that work on the pipo s1 and every other device are iPhone clone earphones, the lenovo earphones have a mic and a sort of pause button and they work on my lenovo phone and the hero 2 tablet but do not work on other devices like my mp4 player or pipo s1.
Confusing situation.

well, like i say there are different ways to make earphones with MIC and REMOTE so you need to find out what technology/method the Lenovo uses, you sould be able to email them and ask of look on their website for full tech specs

afaik there are just 2 standards (?)
buy a cheap TRRS-adaptor and it should work.
I had the same issue with Sony mobile & IEM combined with other phones / devices

I would recommend finding out what connector your phone has, then you will know the standard it uses and from there you can get a adapter that will let you connect other types of earphones with mic/remote with it. However you should have no problem connecting earphones that do not have mic/remote to your phone.

Im trying to get earphones that work with my tablet not my phone. I just said the earphones from my lenovo phone work on hero 2 tablet but the others don't.

The lenovo earphones have a mic and a button that starts and stops the music player when plugged into the phone. The earphones i used on my old tablet are cheap iphone clone earphones that have a vol up and down button and a mic.
