    this is kind of a general question about the headsets which will be offered by nokia for the 920

    Nokia Purity Pro Wireless Stereo Headset by Monster <- don't think it's out
    Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster
    Nokia Purity Stereo Headset by Monster

    how do these compare to others in terms of sound quality? I'm highly unlikely to get the wireless one (too easy to lose & steal), but I'm thinking about getting the other 2 when I get the 920.

    Do you just want headphones or headphones that have compatible call/volume buttons? If you want to have those call/volume buttons you might be better off with Nokia Purity Stereo Headset or similar.


    If not, you have much over 50 brands in the $80-150 range, not to talk about models. Just visit Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors and look around.... then spent $100 over your budget like i usually end up doing. ;)

    I recommend Denon's or Ultimate Ears, Sennheiser's do just fine as well.

    The hd headsets are on ear, while the regular purity's are in ear. I have both, and I think the in ear sound much better. I was very underwhelmed by the purity hd's. Thin is the best way I can describe them. The two are very different form factors, so that may decide it for you. If I was you I'd get the in ear set.

    Personally I'm very anxious to try the bluetooth set. As you could see from one of my other threads, I'm pretty crazy about bluetooth headsets. I've tried most of the great ones; I'll be purchasing the Parrot Zik's this weekend, and I'll certainly get the Purity Pro Wireless set when they come out.

    I just hope they aren't outrageously expensive compared to the quality they are, like beats.

    if you're talking about the purity pro wireless, I'm guessing $299-$349.

    It does, but no volume controls.

    Does anyone know any earbuds that has compatible inline volume controls? Tried using my beats solo hd and skullcandy but the volume controls don't work :(

    those are made to work with ios. You need to find a set that are compatible with windows phone. Try the nokia purity in ears, they sound great.

    Now, keep in mind the 900s have a problem with the controller not working consistently when the screen is off. I have no clue if they fixed this issue with the 920. I'll check when my yellow 920 gets here ;)

    Try
    - urbeats (HTC)
    - htc beats solo
    - Sony smart headset
    - Nocs NS200H-001
    - Nokia purity hd and inears
    They all work for Lumia I tried them ( BC of marketing reason it does not say it on package)

    The controller that comes with the htc beats solo works with windows phone? Next track/previous track/volume? This is from personal experience? If so I'm wondering if they changed the controller, because my experience was different.

    Keep in mind, when you say it does, you might be convincing people to plunk down $100+

    The HTC beats work on Nokia HTC Samsung windowsphone i don't know about any other company. Also keep in mind that HTC beats track buttons work as volume buttons even for the HTC windows phone. To change track you double tap the play button. Keep in mind that you need to buy a HTC version of beats.the iphone beats will not work
