mh650 handsfree incompatible with xperia tipo

I have recently bought a sony ericsson mh650 headset for my sony xperia tipo, because it appears as a recommanded accesory on its support page, however, when i plug it in i get a message, that it is incompatible. Is it a software problem, can it be resolved by an update/patch, or is is incompatible? thanks in advance!

Re: mh650 handsfree incompatible with xperia tipo

I suspect that you might have bought the wrong version of this headset. You see, there are two versions; one called MH650 and one called MH650c. Xperia Tipo uses CTIA standard and therefor needs the MH650c version. The one without the c is for OMTP compatible phones. All phones since Xperia S uses CTIA whilst the older ones uses OMTP.
