Apple Earpods not working with OPO

    I've tried a pair of Apple Earpods with my Oneplus One and they do not seem to work for calls. Is there a reason for this? Are there any other incompatible brands of headsets?

    I am too experiencing the same phone call problem with my OPO phone. I have tired using my apple earpods with the device and I'm told that every-time by the caller they can't hear me...they hear white noise.

    There are two standards: CTIA vs OMTP. Earpods connector is CTIA. Android mostly uses OMTP.

    for "classic" Android (on my Nexus 7) there are no issue with Apple.
    This is ether SW limitation or HW limitation.
    It would be good to finally hear the statment on this, as it is also troubling me.

    Thanks for the CTIA vs OMTP information. Good to know there's a technology difference.

    Quick solution to your problems...press the middle button on the EarPods and it will work just fine

    It's because Apple earpods use a standard not used by the OPO, I believe you can get insanely cheap adapters online if you research what you need.
