    Does anyone know of some sort of converter/cable that lets me use my earphone mic/volome control so that it works to both play/pause and volume up/down. I currently have these PowerBeats by Dr. Dre - Earphones from Beats by Dr. Dre and it work to play/pause and skip tracks but not wolume control...

    The controls either work or they don't. You get the best experience with the controls with an iphone/iOS devices, also you get some stuff with Android, but I think that's it. It's the OS that matters, and if it supports it.
