I do not know about these items but if it works on other phones then a few things spring to mind, that moto might use a different version of plug like a "3 ring + tip" plus there maybe one with 4 + tip. Another thought is the mic needs power if its an electret type which that moto does not supply.
The connection of those earbuds may be wired a little different to how moto needs, many manufacturers do this so you buy their bits and bobs.
Lastly the moto may need some feature selection in its menu system to be turned on so look through its settings for audio-microphone etc.
Hope this might help

SOURCE: wiring a mic

The Delta Force and Omega Force are wired the same way, so if the mic is not working on the radio, check the mic out to make sure it's working. Make sure you have the mic gain turned up on the radio. I assume the mic was not wired for another style of radio??

SOURCE: skullcandy earbuds one earbud not working

It is likely that your right stereo channel has either been severed somehow or there is a severe short in one of the cables. What you can try to do to test this theory is first turn on your music. Then wiggle the cable at the very base of the right earbud. If nothing happens wiggle the cord right where it connects to the stereo jack. If still nothing happens run your fingers along the right earbud audio cable bending and twisting it. If at any point you hear music again then you likely have a short. If it is near the earbud then it is going to be difficult to fix since these earbudfs have a large gauard. If the short is at the stereo jack then the fix is simple. A standard 1/8" stereo jack can be purchased from any electronics or audio store. You can then fairly easily seperate teh old stereo jack and solder this new one in place. Search the internet for tutorials on how to do this if need be. Even if you do not get any kind of sound when wiggling it at the base of the jack this is the most likely culprit since this is where most of the stress on the headphones occur. Be wary though, if you do attempt a stereo jack repair you will void whatever kind of warranty your earbuds may have so check before you try. But, in teh end you may end up saving a 60-100 dollar set of earbuds for 5-8 dollars. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: my skullcandy earphones are busted

could be caused by the way you wrap them up the cords should never be wound tightly it causes a short and it just so happens that earphones are made of light weight wiring to make them seem to disapear when wearing them so what to do is instead of winding them when your done simply fold them loosely so to speak

Either it's not plugged in all the way or there is a short in the line somewhere. I would pop the ear cover off to look at the wiring, it could have come unsoldered.

Why did my left earbud become silent?


Hi,
you can make both of the earbuds work. You can open the earbud where the speaker is that you use to hear the musik. Use a soldering iron and a lead. check if the wire inside has removed, fix it back and you will hear sound on both earbuds.

Take care.

One earbud stopped working


what happens is inside the cord where you have your ear phones connecting to your ipod, there is a thin wire that can easily brake. it happens if u for example, rap your ear phones around your ipod. if your rap the chords to tight, the wire can break. it can even brake when you move the cord too much. such as spinning it, shaking it and such.
the wire that breaks connects to one side or both sides of your earphones, which produces the sound. if you can hear only on one side, the cord is damaged and cant be fixed.

i would go and buy new ear phones
i perfer skullcandy in-ear earphones because the wire is secrurly wrapped, and doesnt brake easily such as other producers. the skullcandy ear phones are in my mind are much better then other earphones. you actually feel like your in the room or at a live show.
