    Hello guys,

    Just wondering if anyone found or knows where I can get an external microphone for my Nokia Lumia 925.. It can be Bluetooth or wired as long as it takes over the built in microphone (as its not up to scratch) I wanted to to vlogging and editing and stuff like that.

    I know there is loads for the iPhone but I wasn't sure if they would work as the iPhone headphones don't work the same.

    Thanks

    The following microphone types are supported on Windows Phone:
    • Bluetooth-enabled headset
    • Mobile phone's built-in microphone
    • Microphones connected through the headset jack



    Working with Microphones

    So... pretty much any Bluetooth or wired mic should work for you.

    Are you sure the iPhone headset jack isn't proprietary? I thought that only headsets designed for the iPhone would work with it, meaning they wouldn't work with anything else? Maybe I was wrong.

    Edit: after a quick Bing search I've found several similar stories about Apple headphones and the mic not working on any other phones. The audio works, but not the mic.

    Yeah how annoying is that.. Does that mean if I were to buy an external boom mic for an iPhone that it probably won't work :/

    Apple doesn't follow the standard everyone else uses, which is too bad because so few quality 3rd party headphones/headsets with microphones are non-iPhone.

    If you're competent with a soldering iron you could always reroute the wires to connect correctly. They seem to have the standard TRRS connector, just a couple wires going to the wrong parts of the tip.

    I'd rather have a very small adapter that reroutes so I wouldn't have to do it everytime I changed headphones
