    Not all USB-C headphones are compatible with all phones. I did some research last year and was looking to buy a set until I read that many of them are proprietary to the manufacturer that made them and will only work in their phones. So I stick to Bluetooth headphones and the USB-C dongle that came with the phone & wired headphones.

    Any wired headphones with a standard 3.5mm audio plug should work with the USB-C dongle. It's designed to work with any 3.5mm headphones.

    These bad boys should do the job. Might not want to crank the volume up too high though.

    As far as active forum users with a Z2 Force there are 5 that I know of. You, me, JKAOD, Pere Droid and Bruben. Since you, me and JKAOD don't use wired headphones with a mic, you might hear something from the other two. All of my calls are over Bluetooth (headset or car kit).

    I just spoke with Moto support and they are sending me a Moto branded USB to sterio jack dongle, that comes with phone, I lost mine, they say with that dongle any wired Moto earbud or headset will work for call,(going to order the $14 one) if after I test old headsets that are non Moto and continue to not work.

    So far I've tested with non Moto dongle and Sony earbud, and usbc direct to earbud noname, non work with calls.

    Let's see if end to end Moto works when I get the dongle. Kinda depressing that there are only 5 motoz2 force posters in the site? I sometimes see 1000s of reads in some articles about z2force, interesting..

    There are probably more than five Z2 Force owners that are Forum members. But there are only 5 active members that post regularly; that we know of.

    I remembered that my backup wired headphones (the ones I keep in my backpack as travel backups) do have a mic. They are JBL Marshmallow 2 headphones, around $20 at Walmart. I plugged them in to the Moto dongle that came with my phone and made a call.....worked like a charm.

    I see jvc marhmellow headphones on Walmart and Amazon not jbl. Can you send url or link if they still are purchasable on the web.

    Also don't you have the z force and not the the Z2 force

    Articles I have read on Google say it worked until a certain update in Z2 force but can't find which one

    The reason I am searching is for scenario
    1) if you have Bluetooth headphones you have to disable Bluetooth during takeoff and landing as a passenger on a plane although I have heard some airlines are changing that rule. If you have wired you can listen to music during takeoff and landing to drown out engine noise. If you have Bluetooth and have to disable Bluetooth then that doesn't work(lol) . If I had wired with mic working then when airplane mode is off calls can be instantly made or recieved , without that you have to use the headset or switch to Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth in
    2) I hate charging Bluetooth excerories so I avoid them and use them only when there is no other option , they need over the air charging anytime your say within ten feet of a charger ue your bedroom when you toss your blue tooth accessories on a table and not fumble with a cord. Apple has the right idea that I don't think has come out yet for a charging plate for earbuds, phone, watch but for Android you need me 3 separate Samsung or other brand qi2 charge plates or usbc or USB micro cords it's a mess of cords

    Any ideas based on this additional info. Also waiting for replacement USB dongle from Moto to arrive and test and see if the the 3rd party dongle is the issue
