headphones with mic on telus fascinate
Hey guys So I have a pair of beats solo by dr.dre which does not work with the samsung galaxy s models.
I read many articles regarding to it and could not find any solutions to it.
For those of you not faimilar with this, I have to hold on to my mic button to have hear the sound properly- otherwise, i only hear background and washed out voices. Of course, the mic doesn't work neither.
However, my friend (with galaxy s captivate) was using beats by dr.dre with mic with this captivate. It was functional, 100%, no problem at all. The mic was working as well!
So I was wondering if there is any solution to using this headphone onto telus fascinate Thanks guys

Unfortuantly for us lot of the headphones (with a mic) are meant for the iphone and it has diffrent specs when it comes to it's headphones compatibility.
I gave up and ended up getting a Sony Ericssion product: Sony Ericsson - Products - Extras - Overview - MW600
The good thing is that you can use with any headphones in the market and Rogers sell them. It is kinda pricy though ($99.99cdn).

With the original working then the wiring and/or pin assignment for the 3.5mm jack is different. There is no standard and having the same plug means very little. The button opens and closes a loop circuit and how its applied can be different between phones. You'll need to look for one designed for that model. The manufacturer should indicate which phones it works with.
