I have no idea how many headsets you've used. But once you've heard or owned a pair of headsets on this list (Mostly the ones over £60) you'd understand the difference. Personally though, I find the ear pods horrible compared to my M2's

This might seem a bit silly, but since we're talking about using higher-end headphones with the mobile phones, here's what I found when using the Ultrasone Signature DJ and the mic'd cable it comes with:

Galaxy S3 from home screen without built-in music app running:
Short Press: beeps, but does nothing.
Long Press: launches Voice Search
Double-Press: double-beeps, nothing else.

Galaxy S3 from home screen or app with built-in music app running:
Short Press: play/pause
Long Press: launches Voice Search
Double-Press: next track
(NOTE: I absolutely NEVER use the built-in music app-- I use Neutron, MOG, and sometimes Poweramp and Rhapsody. So when I originally tried to use the button from the home screen, it simply beeped for both short presses and launched Voice Search for long presses. I tried the stock music app to see if that helped, and it did. Even when I closed the stock app w/ Task Manager, using the button on the SigDJ cord accessed the stock app again.)

Galaxy S3 with Ultrasone IQ app:
Actually, this was pretty handy. I set the app to control my Neutron Media Player, and although it wouldn't work with Neutron at all before that, it worked perfectly afterwards. I was able to play/pause, skip track, and go to previous track, and it didn't make phone calls like it did on the DNA. This is a pretty damn good idea IMO.

Droid DNA from home screen:
Short Press: play/pause on MOG (which was the last thing I was listening to)
Long Press: launches Voice Search
Double-Press: plays music for a fraction of a second, then redials last phone call.

Droid DNA from Play Music:
Short Press: Play/pause
Long Press: launches Voice Search
Double-Press: plays music for split second, then redials last phone call. After ending call, plays next song in list (so it does skip track, but after making phone call).

Droid DNA with Ultrasone IQ app:
Can be customized to launch and control specific apps. Double press still calls most recent number though. I didn't play with it too much, but it was VERY wonky on the DNA. At one point I had plugged my SigDJ into my S3 and was testing it out, and thought I heard my DNA beep (although it was sitting motionless my desk). My suspicions were confirmed a few minutes later when it started playing the last song I had played in my MOG playlist. The app had crashed and was just randomly doing things (or perhaps responding very belatedly to the button presses I had given it earlier). Once I went into the task manager and closed it, naturally, it stopped with the weirdness.

So, long story short: the Ultrasone Signature DJ headphones can use the mic and button on the included cable with a Samsung Galaxy S3, but really only after downloading the Ultrasone IQ app (here). Anyhow, hope this helps somebody out!!

Are you referring to these? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marshall-001...ef=pd_sim_ce_4

if so I'll add it to the first page. If not, please list the exact model you own and report which button (or buttons) work the the S3, thanks.

It is possible to put all the earbuds with working volume control in a bunch together instead of among the rest of the buds?

I assume almost everyone reading this thread wants working volume controls, which is what is hard to find. Everything else is pretty much always mic/play

stop assuming wrong. most of us just want a working inline mic and main button. i prefer smaller design to larger 3 button design mic. piece.

also, with a free app you can configure one button to do 6 or more tasks.

Bunching them together would make it easier for you as well to find what you want, no?

It would be really cool if there where groups based on the level of functionality
