See photo. A few years ago Nokia supplied this kind of headsets with their phones.
I tried it out and it worked on both the N810 and 5800. I am still unsure whether this was the headset supplied with the N810.

That's it. The little "box" there is the mic. Notice the three black rings on the 1/8" plug: two rings for stereo audio and one for mono microphone.

If you have Easy Debian you can also have a play with he gnome alsa mixer. You can then increase the mic volume. I am not sure how much it helps as I haven't tried listening from the other end of the call.
Also don't forget that on the n810 the mic is under the desk stand directly below the 'm' key. Talking right at the mic helps.
I found the delay to be offputting for users when on slow networks, but in general gizmo has done the job for me when I have needed it.

hey guys,


I just tried to pair my BT headphones with my n810 and was able to hear thing but not at a very good qaulity ( with gpodder it sounded like the bluetooth signal was giving out, really scrachy and low no matter how high the volume was ) but once I put the dongle into the tablet it was better but i was concerned that the tablet may not support A2DP ( for making calls utilising the bulit in mic as well as listening to music,) If you guys have any insight on the BT function I'd apriciate your help on this.


Thanks,

By default, Maemo 4 does not support A2DP. You can make it work, although it affects battery life:

Maemo 5 will support A2Dp out of the box, but won't, of course, run on the current tablets.

I have a variation of this problem; instead of too quiet, the mic is too sensitive, it picks up too much of the background noise and amplifies it quite a bit. This is the same with the included wired headset. I've used gizmo and the built in internet call app to test this as well.

Also, does blues-utils test support A2DP?

I could't find out if the original question "How to increase (internal) microphone volume" was answered... does anybody know if is possible?
Thanks in advance

I believe that is correct. I acquired a new-in-box N810 and it included the earphones/microphone set shown in the photograph, only in black, not blue.

The four contact 3.5mm plug is typical of the earphone + microphone combination.
