There are a lot of adapters that add control functionality to existing headphones pre-made. A discussion of a couple are in another thread.

Smile AKG Q460

I use a set of AKG Q460 - you can pick them up on eBay (From the US) for a reasonable price. They give you the option of a cable with inline controls, or one without for other devices where need be.

The volume controls don't work out of the box though - but they should be controllable using an earphone control app, although i've not looked around enough to find one.

Regardless, they sound awesome and are very comfortable and they also come with a little carry case thing.

I use the triplefi10vi.
Can pause, play and skip songs with the control on the cable.
Also answer calls with the mic on it.

works perfectly!

Work straight out of the box, no issues as far as i have discovered.

I was really surprised tbh, as i bought them for my old iphone.
When i decided to take the step over to android, i was a little annoyed that i could not use my triplefi as before. But i was very very happy when i found out it worked like a charm

I am currently using the ibeats that came from the HTC sensation XE on my GN but I am eyeing out on this one. You can also download the app from the marketplace and customize the headset functions to your liking =)

I read somewhere that Klipsch App is not working for the Klipsch Image S4A Headphones (on the GN). Can someone confirm that? Also are they working properly with Jay's headset control?

thanks
