Probably not unless you are handy with a soldering iron, and willing to experiment a bit.  What your issue tells me is the four connections on the plug, aren't setup the same as the four connections in the Lumia socket. There is, unfortunately, no industry standard for how these are set up. The controls are just as un-standard, but typically at least the call pickup/end works. That ususally does pause and play too. It may just be the length of each of the connections on the plug.


The reason I say, soldering iron, is my approach to fixing this is to make a short socket to plug cable, about 6: long that has the right socket layout for the headphones and the right plug layout for the phone. Not that I could tell you what is right on either end, but the parts are readily available on ebay. This isn't what you want, but it would look like this. adapter


There was a time when you could find conversion cables for the assortment of micro headphone plugs ready made. I haven't seen any for current smartphones. Probably because more actually work, except for the controls, and that includes proprietary stuff that would need to be licensed.

Whilst Lumia 920 has an AHJ/OMTP composite connector there will still be issues with iPhone compatible controls.

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0
