Awesome.

What about them? Work fine? Sound good? Which one is better? Do all the controls work?

I find the supplied earbuds atrocius. I got mine in Germany, without contract, and the buds are worse than what I got with the DHD (or Sensation?). There is a little knob with a pushbutton that pauses/unpauses the music, and it might even be a handsfree mic and call accept button. To me this is utter garbage, and they don't even sound or fit well.

I would be interested in options that deliver maybe volume control (optional), next track, prev track and pause. And decent sound. Do I need to shell out for HTC "Beats" models? Or are the special features delivered by the "remote" on the cable standard and normalized between manufacturers by now?

Any good suggestions?

Pretty much any headphones with buttons will work fine with Android. To get the full range of controls you might want to install an app.

Jays Headset Control works a treat for me, and allows you to configure to what you would like - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...headsetcontrol

As to which headphones to buy, that depends on your budget. Something from Ultimate Ears with the vi or vm on the end of the model name if it were my cash.

Jays is awesome. Must install if you're stock because there's very little built-in support for one-button controls.

That said, I'm using a pair of id America Sparks right now. They sound wonderful, look great, have tons of color choices, and they have been going thorough a chain of price matches ($30ish) that have made it all the way to Amazon.

Just Google "id America Spark" Plenty of good reviews, and hit up Shopping to find where you can grab a pair.

I did According to argos (uk) they are worth 120 which is impressive considering they where free

Sadly, the US version didn't include this kind of offer. I definitely ordered one of the first 10,000 units. In fact, the US package doesn't even have cheap, crappy headphones in them, which I would normally use as a workout pair.
