Hi there,

today I bought a new headphone for travelling and such, a Sony MDR-ZX750BN (sorry cant link because new user). Now this model has its own volume control and also a previous, next and a play/stop buttons, which picks up calls as well (built in mic). So I searched some forums and google for a way to change button actions, as it would be pretty great to launch google now with a long press etc. But all the apps I've tried have failed to recognize the headphone. Can someone point me to a tool which does things like this? Is it very complicated? I am not an expert in deeper andriod modifications but not a beginner either. Running a Nexus 5 with L release.

Thanks in advance
