Nowadays, there are many occasions when people need to use their headphones and their iPhone’s microphone at the same time. For example, when making Skype or Facetime calls or recording podcasts. It is possible to use both these accessories at the same time. Here’s how.
Setting up iPhone audio output
In order to use a mic and headphone simultaneously, users will first need to configure their iPhones. On the home screen, open the Settings application, then choose Sounds. Tap Headphone & Headset then disable Enable Mono Audio to configure audio output for both the left and right channels. Tap the volume control to adjust the balance and make sure that it’s properly set.
Checking mobile devices
After configuring the iPhone sound output, users should connect a pair of headphones to the device. Then, certain headphones even have a built-in mic and a control button for media playback and voice calls as well. If these types of headphones have a control pad, users should tap and hold the control pad button in order to check whether the headphones are well connected to the iPhone or not.
Using Apple-made accessories
If the users are using Apple-made accessories such as Apple’s EarPods with Remote and Mic or AirPods, they should double-click the control pad button to start recording. As long as the device is properly configured, users will be able to make recordings and calls with their iPhone mic and headphones at the same time.
Using third-party accessories
For non-Apple accessories, users should check whether their headphones have a compatible control piece or button capable of answering calls and functioning as a microphone. If their headphones match these criteria, users can click and hold the control piece to make recordings with their iPhone mic and headphones at the same time.
In cases where the headphones are not compatible, users may be able to purchase an adapter separately to make their accessories compatible with their iPhones. This is a great option for users who cannot upgrade their current headphones.
In conclusion, it is possible for many users to record sound and use their headphones simultaneously by configuring the iPhone audio output, checking the device and headphone connection and understanding if compatible accessories are being used. In order to do this, it is best practice to fully understand the device and headphones so one can make sure they are compatible.
