French translation:microphone/écouteur
Explanation:
Mouth piece = microphone; part of the phone in which you speak
Ear piece = écouteur; part of the phone that you put on your ear, hence the name

This is very basic vocabulary, a bit old-dated, because these parts have been separated very long ago (early days of telephone), then combined in one item with two clearly distinguised ends, but are now more and more integrated in devices that have for sure one end to put on the ear but get the sound of the mouth through a microphone that does no more have to be close ot it.
