Hi there,

Bought a pair of the Beats Tour earphones with Control Talk for my HTC One X today. The Play/Pause button works as it should but when I pressed the volume buttons it does nothing...

I have read a post somewhere that HTC phones (especially the One series) will work with any earphones with in-line remote control...
It seems so strange to me that the One X delivers the Beats technology but does not work with Beats earphones...

Is it a pair of genuine Beats Tour? Try w/ an iPhone to see if it work. As far as I know, volume controls only work for the iPhone and iPod.

Try the Headset Button Controller trial app in google play. You can map out the buttons like long click for volume up, double click to skip tracks etc etc. Tried it with Desire HD's stock earphone today and it worked (Used DHD's stock earphone because I don't have any other headset with 3-button control)

I've got some ControlTalk Beats too and the volume control is the only thing that doesn't work. They were bought for an iPhone so I'm not entirely surprised. I bought the Headset Button Controller (think that's the name) App and it allows a lot of customisation, including skip forward/backward, but still no volume control.

It just seems like only the centre button works, not the extra side buttons.

Hi

Considering getting this. Does the mic and call answer at least work with this "HTC ControlTalk" cable? I know the standard Beats one doesn't.

Are you talking about Beats Tour or UrBeats??

The Beats Tour ControlTalk controls are designed for iPhone. Like most of the guys have said here, download a third party app to map the controls

If you're talking about getting the UrBeats/iBeats. then the ControlTalk controls work fine (I got a set of UrBeats for my One X and work great)

I bought mine HERE. They have them in black and red to. They are genuine as handtec is a reputable company.

The HOX says its Beats compatible.
and whernever i use any earphone or speakser, the BEATS is activate.

So, is it necessary to have the Beats Earphones for getting the Beast Dre effect ?
or its built in already in my HOX. and can be same effect with normal earphone which came with HOX.


thanks,
Pramod
