    Any headphones with a 3.5 mm jack will work.

    Generally, that's how it's supposed to work. But i was surprised when my sony mdr-xb30 didn't work on lumia 630 and when i contacted Microsoft and sony support both of them didn't give me a proper answer, and they just said some headsets are not compatible. They were talking about AHJ (AMERICAN HEADSET JACK) model headsets and another type, which i don't remember now. The said it's because of that type incompatibility. That's why I'm truing to get a confirmation before making a purchase. I'm impressed with everything else about the phone. Thanks for your reply by the way

    Hi thanks a lot for the information. This is exactly what I'm looking for and glad to know there are connectors which I can use to connect any type of headset or headphones. By the way, i would like to know what different brands of headsets that people are using with lumia 640, which are working without any problems. Once again thanks a lot for the info. I'm not a tech savvy but techcurious :)

    That really bugs me when brands make headphones with different jacks. Whoever came up with adapters is a genius though! Id be lost without my sd card adapter.

    If you have time when you get it can you write up your own user review for people wishing to buy the 640 only if you have the time it would be great to add it to the database.

    My Apple Earpod works very well. The remote buttons also controls on/off calls, except for adjusting -/+ volume levels.
