Compatible headphones, headsets or external speakers for the FP3


There are different standards for the 4-pins of a headset with mic (and remote). Here you can find the explanation about the different types and with a simple measurement you can check what wired* headset you have:

The FP3 uses the standard 3,5 mm AHJ=CTIA (ground=2).

We do not have the capacity to test headphones and we are not in the position to endorse the use of any brands or types of headphones.
However, we invite you to visit our awesome community via the forum to make a nice list of good headphones that you and others have tried out.


Your device does not work

If your device does not work on your Fairphone 3:

  1. Make sure your device is compatible with the Fairphone 3 and/or Android devices. Headsets made for other phones than Android-based phones might not work.
  2. If the sound is still not working, please check that your head jack is not damaged. Try at least 3 different headphones to deduct if it is really the head jack of the FP3 that causes the problem and not a broken headphone.


*For any wireless device, consult the Bluetooth-issues article.

If your issue persists, use the Troubleshooter tool or contact customer support.
