Would anyone happen to know if the microphone would be compatible with other mobile phones with a 3.5mm jack (such as my Nokia 5530) ? Thanks.

*Found the answer, they work fine with the 5800 so no reason why they wouldn't work on the 5530.

I don't suppose these would work with Skype? My dad wants a headset for it for Christmas.

I wouldn't mind a pair of these myself though!

Don't quote me on it 100% but I doubt this would work with Skype, because a PC needs either Mic and Speaker support over either USB or two 3.5mm leads, one to the green headphone/speaker socket and one to the pink microphone socket.

This only has one 3.5mm jack, and obviously isn't USB...so I somehow doubt it. Unless you are talking about skype support on a mobile phone?

Ah right, I meant on a computer. I might just get a pair for myself then :P Thanks!

May sound silly but a genuine question - Can these be used for listening to music on the PC? The PLAY.com description states: For iPod, iPhone, BlackBerry and MP3 players with a 3.5 mm jack. :oops:

Yes, I would think that would be fine, just the internal wiring for the microphone wouldn't work.

It will work with your laptop if you have the standard 3.5 jack imput? :whistling:

Thanks for the replies cicobuff and luke-kirk. I'm thinking of buying em for the sole purpose of sticking them into the PC speakers I have: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-X-140-Multimedia-Speakers-2-0/dp/B000JCDRTU

Part of the description for the speakers: "Use the convenient 3.5 mm auxiliary input to connect your portable MP3 or CD player."

Have some heat. These sound pretty good!

Thats an input for an mp3 player - not an output to connect headphones to.

Ah, yes you're correct - I pasted the wrong part. :oops:

Pasted from PLAY.com:

-3.5 mm auxiliary input: Connect your portable MP3 or CD player
-Stereo headphone jack: Connect headphones to enjoy your music privately

Yep, that would be fine, these will work as regular headphones in any 3.5mm jack that is an output socket. The only thing that would not work is the inline microphone, that would only work on devices that have a 3.5mm socket also wired for microphone, such as IPhone and other Mobile Phones.

So as long as you are ok with a redundant inline microphone, these are fine.

good point. i've ordered it.

Thank you very much for clearing that up for me mate! ;-)
