I recently purchased a second hand black X8 with a no-name headset. When I plug in the headset, it shows the headset icon next to GSM signal, but the sound is low and not clear. The headset has a button where the wires split,along with a microphone. When I press that button, the sound becomes stereo and louder, clearer.
I'm considering buying a SE headset, but before I do, I want to ask if the phone plug is damaged or its just headset incompatibility ?
the 3.5mm jack has 4 connectors on it(2 inner rings, 3 plastic spacers) same as MH610 or HPM-60JS.
I'm also considering gluing the button to clicked position, what functionality would I lose by doing so? I'm assuming its used to answer incoming calls while headset is plugged.
