Interesting I did not know that the PLAY and Forward/Revers works from a Wired headset. That is good to know.

I bought these Samsung earbuds and use them along with Jays Headset Control from the Play store. Thanks to the app the one answer button can handle all music controls and even initiate voice actions.
DEVICE: Samsung Captivate Glide
RETIRED: HTC Rhodium, HTC Kaiser, HTC Wizard

Gotta have me some QWERTY!

Here are some from Samsung:

Didn't tried them, but since they're said to be made for the Captivate Glide, they should work.

Finally got around to grabbing the HTC ones and they're working fine. Audio quality is half decent too.

Desire headset isn't working on calls for me. I hear fine but the other side says the sound is terrible.

Samsung galaxy one and newer Samsung phones use two different 3.5 mm jack
The newer jack like on gs2&3 are more standards. The remote doesn't work because on gs1 it's wired different.

As of today
Sony (not Sony Ericsson)
Use the same Standards 3.5mm jack
So of buy a htc ear headphone it work on all 3 companies

( i don't know about other companies)

Any mention of headset in the glide manual talks about micro USB.

(Drowning in google search results, most of which don't apply [Why do they assume if you want an adapter you want a crappy / cheap earbud headset too?]. So posting here to start from a list of those who have a glide and specific experience!)

Messages here seem to indicate that standard 3 connector, 2.5mm cordless phone headsets work. Can anyone confirm?

(I tried a friend's 3.5mm headset, got audio, but only for media not for anything else, per playing with settings / audio. It also has an additional doohickey / adapter where the headphones plug into a mic adapter, which in turn plugs into the 3.5mm jack instead of the headphones, directly - when using that not even media came through.)

(And even when audio came through, the navigator voice didn't come through, as it did not on a bluetooth headset. I can't hear the navigator across the car - how to get it to play to a headset?)

Source of a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter known to work?

Or 2.5mm to micro usb adapter?

Let alone, pc headset, 2 x 3.5mm, to micro usb adapter?

Thanks for any pointers / good search terms to known good working beasties, drowning in search results.

I need yet another crappy headset like I need ... druther just use one I already know and like and adapt it to the glide.

I'm guessing an adapter would need buttons on it for talk (and / or volume?).

I see on amazon there's a straight micro usb to 3.5mm adapter however I suspect it would be audio only (yes?), and worried that since it's a solid doohickey, not two ends separated by wire, that some end would get easily broken.

Advice, thoughts, experiences?
