wait - there are just TWO earphones with cable for mobile phones that are compatible ??
Thats just hillarious.
Thanks INTEL for non-compatibility :-(
update: the apple earphones do NOT work. Strangely, the user just reports that on one point the headset worked - then it did not.
Intel does not attempt to provide an exhaustive list of compatible products; it is just meant to be representative. Unfortunately, Intel cannot just accept the fact that someone saying something works for them means that it will work for everyone. Thus, the items that appear in this list are only those that they (Intel's NUC/ICS development and marketing teams and Intel's Customer Support personnel) have personally tested with and/or have been tested by Intel's Compatibility Validation Labs.
Which Operating System are you using?
the solution was simple > updating the BIOS.
Obviously INTEL had a bug in the old BIOS.
It now works flawlessly with any headphone.
