I received a Nokia Numia 635 (T-Mobile) yesterday for my birthday. I've since noticed that when I try to use headphones with it, the phone doesn't "detect" them, i.e., it keeps using the speakers. I'm using a pair of Skullcandy Hesh 2 headphones. Is there anything I can do?

  • I have a set of sony headphones with a mic and the mic regularly doesn't work. I think that it has issues with sony products.

I just found the solution - A simple restart fixed it.

EDIT: The phone was brand new when I posted this, and I'm going with the assumption that it had something to do with the updates needing a restart to finalize.

  • Does your Hesh 2 have a microphone? Headphones which doesn't have a mic won't work with Lumia phones. Check with a headset which is having a mic, preferably a Nokia headset.

  • ^ Yeah. Mine don't have a mic and they work fine now with my phone. It must have been something with the software updates that required another restart. Sep 22 '14 at 16:49
  • From my experience, I've connected the default Nokia headset to my Lumia 630 and I could hear the sound well. But I connected a SoundMAGIC E10 headphone to my phone which doesn't have a mic, thinking that I could get the best sound experience, it isn't working or recognizing. Later then I tried a Sony MDR- XB30EX Extra-Bass Stereo Headphone without mic and it also disappointed me. But then I tried connecting a Samsung headset which is having a mic packed with Samsung Galaxy S2 and it was working. From this I understood that headphones without mic doesn't work with Lumia. That's what I said!
