Earphones that work with both laptop and mobile

ujjawal joshi

Ques. I want to have an earphone which works with laptop plus mobile phone but I am confused whether one will work with another? Please help.

Ans. Any headphones with an inbuilt mic and having only a single output/input jack will work will with your phone. But the only problem will be that the mic will not work when connected to the laptop (will work on some Lenovo laptops) if your laptop has an inbuilt mic then not a problem.

Some examples: Philips SHE3595BK/00 Headset http://www.flipkart.com/item/ACCDCUJ8SM6WHSTH

Nokia WH-208 In-the-ear Headset http://www.flipkart.com/item/ACCDK2G5PGREPWBS

Sony MDR-EX110AP/BQE EX Monitor In-the-ear Headset http://www.flipkart.com/item/ACCDNGPRKHFWPFAN

Do remember that sometimes the  Headphones of competing mobile brands like Samsung and nokia do not work with each other so be advised to read reviews on flipkart before buying anyone to be sure of compatibility.


  1. Theres one loose jugaad that I try so that phone headphones work with laptop. Though only the headphone part not mic. Do you mind if I share it?

    1. Please feel free to share...

  2. Insert the headphone jack in the point,,now pull the jack slowly out, there will come a point where you will be able to hear the sound clearly, . Works with headphones of all mobiles. Remember that point is just where the jack comes out or stays in. You will have to do it no. of times to find it. Good Luck
