    Hey Guys,

    Just picked up an HTC 8X and I can't seem to find any Klipsch or any other headsets that work for volume/track changing. I just bought the Klipsch S4A II which are designed for Android devices and the remote built in just starts/stops the track.

    What am I missing? Most headphones with mics are designed for Apple so finding something that is compatible with this HTC is proving difficult.

    Thoughts?

    I get a similar issue with my Bose QC 15 headset. I can change the track by double pressing the change button but the volume button doesn't work.

    I'd also like to know if there are any headphones that support the volume. It does my head in having to reach for the phones volume rocker all the time.

    I haven't tried headphones but it's the same in my car, the volume on the radio doesn't control the volume on the phone which is very strange. I have to change the volume on the phone....

    Is it plugged in through the AUX port?

    I have tried my new Klipsch S4A II and only start/stop work, no volume or track change and this happens with my bose AE2 headphones too. Both are plugged into the headphone jack.

    CORRECTION - Next track works on both headphones but no volume.

    Search for HTC RC E190 or HTC RC E240 (both in-ear, I own the 240s and I find them very decent), volume controls are working with my WP7, so they should do that on WP8, too. Also tried my friends urbeats by dr. dre (from the sensation) and they were working, too, though the "volume controls" were skip and back buttons.... So I'm not sure about them ;)

    Do the HTC RC E240's activate the Beats Audio? The website says it doesn't...

    Actually, I am using the 8x with the Image S4A (II) and there is slightly more functionality.

    Long Press = Voice Command
    Short Press = Play/Pause
    Double Click = Next Track

    I think they do, because I read that the phone is allowing every headphones to use Beats Audio...

    I have the HTC RC E190 headset and It works with my 8X +/- adjusts volume and on the middle one press is play/pause/answer call , two presses is next track and three presses is previous track also the headset activates beats when plugged in quality is quite good considering I only paid 5 for them

    Every headphone activates beats audio. I use AKG 450 and although they do not have controls or mic they activate beats audio.

    Why?? They sound great!

    Don't get me wrong, i know there's plenty of better headphones on the market but I bought these cause they sound great, look great, fold up nicely, and have a very sturdy build! AND its detachable cable running from it! (cant tell you how many times i've broken those and had to get rid of perfectly good headphones)
