    Hi all,

    Just switched from iPhone to Lumia 1520, and I'm hooked. So glad to have ditched Apple after so many years.

    Anyways, I've been using the standard iPhone headset, as they are bundled with all the devices. However, I know they don't work properly on many other devices, including this one. At least, my first experience with it seems to suggest that it doesn't work properly. So my question is, what are some good options here? I know this isn't particularly related to this device, but I figured I'd ask fellow 1520 owners what they are using. Of course I'm looking for decent quality audio, but with easy access to phone controls as you would expect.

    Thanks!

    Right. I'm sure you're using a $16K pair of headphones for your phone. Fantastic suggestion for my dilemma!

    Which iPhone did you have? How does the Lumia sound (on the same earphones) compared to the iPhone?

    I would recommend Westone UM1. But it doesn't have convenience features.

    Thx for responses all. In my search for a good wired headset with controls, I think the only real options are either the Nokia Pure or Coloud Pop. The Coloud looks like a great value, but doesn't have volume controls, just multipurpose button. So I think I might just get the Nokia Pure. Can anyone comment on the comfort level for those?

    I had the Nokia Purity on ear set. They cost around 70-100. Personally, I thought they sounded awful, but they do include a nice three button controller that works with Windows Phone.

    I ended up ordering the Purity's. They seemed like the best choice. I only paid $45.99 for the black ones on eBay.
