    Default earphone-microphone

    'the set with the earphone and microphone put together (e.g. for use in a car)'
    I wonder what you call it in English.
    1. earphone-microphone?
    2. earphone with a microphone?
    3. any other?
    Thank you.

    Thank you very much. Does the 'headset' always or usually have a microphone on it?

    'headset' is almost always a set of headphone / earbuds and microphone. At least that's what people will understand it as when you mention about it.

    Try doing an image search on headset in Google.
