Not sure if there is already a thread like this but I just found out something that I found was pretty freaking awesome!
Was listening to some B.o.B when I tried clicking the volume buttons on my earphones. ( Monster/Nokia purity) then boom the buttons act as a previous and next. For me the volume down is next and obviously the volume up is the previous

And just found out that holding the middle button activates the voice search

Do you have any other headphones that u can test with? You're positive that it didn't work on ics? If yes to both, I can't wait to flash jelly and try!

I have headphones with a single button on them. Long pressing opens up voice search, single clicking while listening to music acts as a play/pause actions, double clicking moves to the next track and I hope triple clicking moves to the previous track.

My Etymotic buds don't work.

The play/next track button just pauses, and volume buttons do nothing.

Triple click does not go to previous track. Single pauses/plays.
Double moves to next track.
Long press brings up Google now.

Haven't been able to figure out previous track yet.

I have a pair of Sony Wired with music and volume control. They seemed to work better on GB when using my LG G2x, but the ICS on the Nexus only registered the 1 main button (Previous, Skip, volume up and Volume Down did nothing). On the LG G2x, everything worked great except Volume which I read was a Apple exclusive.

I also have a A2DP BlueAnt Handsfree unit for calls, but has 2 Volume buttons and a main button. I'm curious to see how it handles it when playing music.

I'll give them a shot again tonight to see how JB handles it.

I can confirm my handset didn't burst into flames with an Apple headset and while the vol up/down buttons didn't work, long press on middle opened search and short press pauses/plays. I don't have any music on my GNex to try the next/previous tracks.

Ok good, I didn't want my nexus to explode. Thanks for being the Guinea pig
