Headphones with Audio Controls
There's a thread
over in the international forums about this, but nothing (that I found) over here in the US forums.
I'm looking for a reasonably cheap (but I'm flexible) pair of headphones that include in-line audio controls.
It's my understanding that the standard urbeats headphones (like the ones that come with the Rezound) work, although it'd be great to see someone confirm this 100%. My problem with them is that they're butt-ugly. They do have a version
with white accents, but it still has that ugly red cable.
I'm looking for something with a little bit nicer look to it, like the a-JAYS series. My problem with that is that they only have 2 versions with audio controls... The a-JAYS One+
) should work fine (made for Android specifically), but I'm not a fan of the 1-button. I know they have a free app to configure what it does, but I don't want to have to, for example, press the button 3 times to advance songs or something like that.
They also make the a-JAYS Four
which comes with the apple-style 3-button controls (and even comes in a white version
, which would look sweet with the white SGSIII). But from what I understand, those controls don't work with Android. Confirm?
I'm no audiophille, so even cheap-o headphones like the official apple ones
would be fine with me if they actually worked.
Does anyone know of any adapters that would make these, or perhaps the a-JAYS Four (since they're way cooler), actually work
Like I said above, I'm not not an audiophille so I'm not really picky about quality. I've been using these
for the past 4-ish years:
so you know how much I really don't care about quality.
I don't mind something cheap, as long as it get's the job done. If there's some cheap adapter that might look
funny but will work then I'm all for it. But, if I'm going to be paying a lot, I want it to actually look nice... which is why I'm turned off by the urbeats. I really like the style of the a-JAYS (especially the flat tangle-free cable).
Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
(P.S. I don't want headphones,
per se (despite the thread title). I want earbuds... and I don't care if they're the in-ear type, or the outer-ear type (like the apple ones, or the ones I'm currently using)
