LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

 

I tried using my sennheiser earphones on the LUMIA 520 to listen to music and it literally sucks!!! the bass is very feeble.

 

However, when i tried using JBL earphones, the sound quality is fantastic.

 

Anyone planning to buy good earphones for the LUMIA 520, please beware of this. Do not buy sennheiser earphones for this model.

Hi,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

Note that the Lumia 520 is compatible with AHJ wired headsets. To see the difference with other headsets, check the attachment for the diagram. You can also check the link below for other supported accessories:

Re: LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

This is not true to brand all types from one manufacturers portfolio to be uncompatable.

Re: LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

also bear in mind that the 520 does not have Dolby Headphone audio enhancement as the other WP8 Lumia's in Nokia's portfolio do.

I agree with jimmyireland - it doesn't really make sense to declare an entire brand of headphones no good for a particular phone based on trying just one model.

 

As it happens, I use Sennheiser IE4 earbuds when I'm running and the bass is far from feeble.  In fact it's a bit too powerful, but that's another story. :smileyhappy:

Re: LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

Can anyone help. I just bought a Lumia 520 and I'm looking for a decent set of headphones. These Sennheiser buds, where can I get them, in a normal music store or from a phone shop and how much are they. By the way, I live in Dublin so any shop suggestions would have to be there! Not hugely knowledged about phones, so any help would be great. Thanks!

Re: LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

Hi.  You'd find Sennheiser IE4's at a music shop (a shop for musicians, not a record shop) .  You could also get them online from, say,  http://www.thomann.de/ie/ or www.studiospares.com.  Around €70, so a bit more than most consumer models but I bought myself some as we use them at work so I knew they sounded good and they seem to be much less fragile than cheaper ones.

 

Slightly reluctant to recommend them for the Lumia 520 unless you like powerful bass, as they're a bit bass heavy and (so far) Nokia hasn't given us an equaliser to turn it down. (Hint, hint.  Please, Nokia. :smileyhappy: )

Re: LUMIA 520 earphone compatibility

It all depends on the impedance of the headphones, my Sennheisers are 300 ohm and only work when plugged into an amplifier.  I have a set a hifiman ear buds that are 150 ohm and work fine on a dedicated mp3 player, but sound anemic otherwise.   My Grado 32 ohm impedance headphones work fine no matter what.  Check the specs on the headphones, the same manufacturer can have phones or buds that go anywhere from 8 ohms to 600 ohms.
