    Re: earphone-microphone

    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.
