Apart from the Chromebook (3.5mm connector) it is easily connected to mobile phones and tablets. However, it is significant to note that Chromebooks only support 3.5mm TRRS connectors that are not found normally. This headset works great because it has an added TRRS connector with it so that you can attach it to the Chromebook easily.

In order to make sure that these noises do your sanity no harm you can get a headphone with a built in microphone.

There are plenty of them available in the market but you need to check if they are compatible with the ports of the Chromebook because that’s the only issue Chromebooks have.

Mouse:

Chromebooks support Samsung’s own mouse series so what’s better than having one of those at hand. You only need to put the plug in the USB port and the mouse starts working fine. However, Chromebook Series 3 has a slightly different outlook and they have only one USB 2.0 port. This means that the one USB port shall be left undecided between using that mouse or the LED light or your headset.
