    I have a samsung Galanxy S5 that I have loved. I thought I would make it more useful by getting an earpiece with a mic boom for driving and talking hands off. I wanted the analog connection because it is more reliable, etc. When I plugged it in though, the mic is not picking up anything. Does the jack on the S5 not support the mic/headphone combination? I was really surprised when it did not work.

    It does but you gotta make sure the wiring is correct. Unfortunately there are a lot of wiring 'standards', and if your headphones use, for instance, Nokia's or some older iPhone ones, the mic or the 'action button' on the headphones might not work.

    No problems at all. I've used both Samsung and Apple earbuds, mic and phones work perfectly
