How to get these Sony Headphones with my Samsung Galaxy S8

I bought these Sony Headphones from ebay a week ago with the purpose of recording certain phone conversations on a needed basis. 

https://www.ebay.ca/i/253802746456?chn= ... 2affd1888a

Even though I am inserting it into my phone socket, it is not recording conversations at all  Have even bought a splitter with a microphone socket but that hasn't worked either. 

Will appreciate a tech genius helping me out here

I've never heard of anything like this. How are headphones supposed to record phone conversations?

These are what normally called "spy gadget" which is meant to be a microphone disguised as a headphone. Normally paired up with something like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XF ... martcom-20 to record.

Problem 1: If you plug this into your phone, you will have to make sure the app you used supports something called line-in recording. Most apps out there always use the build in microphone by default. Try something like "RecForge II - Audio Recorder". I believe this one support line-in.

Problem 2: On the phone side, you need something specifically "3,5 mm TRS source (female) to TRRS output" like this: https://www.amazon.com/Movo-MC3-Microph ... B01N9CJDVE which i am not sure will work with all iPhone.

If you already have an adapter like this, the problem is most likely your app.

If you just want to record phone conversations, just use an app called ACR.
