Default Headset button

I received my new Bose MIE2 mobile headset. Anyone have any idea how to gain control over the button? I'd like to use it to mute/unmute while I'm on a call. It seems to end a call instead. I tried various headset button controller apps in the market but they all seem to fail taking control of the button despite their debug mode showing they are interpreting the button press (any idea what setting is retaining control over the function)? Thanks!

I've done a ton of reading. Its not a Bose issue. Its an Android issue. They changed something in Jelly bean that carried into Kitkat where the phone call app owns all the headset button input. There are third party apps out there that worked prior to the change. If you debug you can see the phone receives the button presses but the apps just can't control them. Seems ridiculous that we can't even program one button whereas iPhone has three button headsets that work.
