Default [REF] WP7 Compatible Headsets

Decided to start a list of wired headsets that have working in-line buttons / microphones for Windows Phones. Current material is scattered and mostly found in device-specific forums. I hope I am right to assume that all Windows Phones comply to the same standards, though I do know that the HD7 at least does not support forward/backward controls. As a safeguard, I've included "Device" to indicate what phone the headset was tested on.

A lot of the posts I found around the forums are too general and not relating to specific models. I need specifics for this list to work. Please object if a listing is incorrect, or add confirmation if a headset works with your device too. If you are personally testing, be sure to push the jack ALL the way in.


Required Information

Device you tested the headset with

What is working and what isn't

Same with my Omnia 7.

Strangely, it didn't show tags with Sony's own Xperia Arc.

Default The Focus default headsets

I have purchased like 4 off Amazon only one of the vendors sells the 3 button version, everyone else keeps sending the volume only headset. I think the 3 button headset sounds better.
History have had plenty of Pocket PC's, and other PDA devices.
Samsung Focus (Custom Rom) and Focus S (Interlop Unlocked) and Transformer TF101 w/Megatron and 17C (Stable for work use)

I'm including skip, pause and backtrack under the "Answer/End" button. AFAIK there are no buds which support one without the other, but I will separate them if I encounter one.

This thread was supposed to be for wired headsets, as Bluetooth ones generally don't suffer from the compatibility issues of the former. However, I'll add Bluetooth headsets to the third post for now.
