    My phone is Samsung galaxy Note 3 (Android 5.0), I'd like to use the headphones just for the sound. My headphone's mic lacks quality, So I'd like to be using the Mobile's built-in mic while the headphones are connected. Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! I'm not sure, but SoundAbout might be able to do it. The feature list mentions a Wired Mic Toggle widget that toggles a wired headphone mic on or off. But I don't know if that means the internal mic is then used.

    Good point. I was thinking that the OP really liked the sound quality of their current headphones, and therefore still wanted to use them for sound.

    SoundAbout should work.

    Once you installed the App, open it and set

    Media audio: Weird Headphones
    Phone call audio: Weird Headphones

    Go back to main menu then tap on Connectable devices. Next, tap on Weird Headset Settings: then Untick Weird Headset microphone.

    Once all the above steps are done, then RESTART your phone. Test It and it should work fine.

    soundabout crashes on start. any alternatives? seems like soundabout has no further support planned based on lack of dev activity, so im not going to try the 2.99 version since the trial wont even open. other apps seem to only reroute audio. i would like to switch off headset mic
