Volume - forget about it, its proprietary. In order to make it to work, you need to crack remote open and replace 2 resistors inside. It's very tedious and these in-line remotes are so small, you might break it before taking it apart.
Regarding control and MIC - it absolutely DOES work. Get JAYS free app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...headsetcontrol
- and with a single multi-function control button you can play/pause audio and video, pick-up/hang-up calls and use MIC (you don't even need app to use any of these functions for single button and mic use), then also assign double and triple click for playback control to skip Next/Prev tracks and adjust timing between clicks (very important because if timing is too short it will think you did a double click and a single click).
Look into my signature link and over a hundred accessory review I posted on XDA, including headphones with dedicated Apple controls. Everything works great
Btw, how do you like x10i? I have S4A II (supposed to be for android, but they simply removed volume buttons from apple version, leaving a single multi-function control button). My favorite under $100 headphones are UE 600vi with "apple" control, about $59 on amazon. Wireless, I can't get enough of new Plantronics BackBeat Go 2. Also, might get x7i to review, heard some saying it sounds better then x10i? Also, Klipsch released x11i too.
