I've been using Ultimate Ears 400vi on my iPhone 4 and it've been working great. Recently I got myself a Note 3, the earphone play/pause button works but not the volume up and down.

Any idea?

I had the same earphones and the volume buttons never worked on any Android device, I learnt to live with it.

Robust buggers they were too, survived a full wash/spin/tumble dry in my washing machine. A Samsung washing machine, obviously...

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll have to start living with it till it broke.

You could try Headset Button Controller app from play store.
I used it on my girlfriends Nexus 4 to be able to use my Beats headset buttons.
They have a free trial version:

Maybe worth a try

It's a common problem you can't fix. Apple has an own style/method of using the headphone buttons,which differs from the - common - android like method, which is used by samsung, htc and so on.

As far as I know, Android does not support the Volume controls on any headset remote.

Some mediaplayers like N7 support double/triple click skipping, but not volume.

As for f.lux, there's Lux Auto Brightness: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.vito.lux (There's a free version, too).

Volume works with Headset Button Controller on Nexus 4. I'll give it a try on my Note 3 tomorrow to see what it does on that one.

.

Incorrect. Samsung ships headphones with the S4 that control volume as well as song pause/skip.
Look them up on Amazon. Sound quality is O.K., nothing stellar, but they work.

Apparently http://www.jays.se/a-jays-five has android specific versions with volume as well, but I haven't tried them.

Read a rumor that the Jays software will enable volume for any headphone, but I've not confirmed it.
