    Anyone know what earbuds with adjustable volume (vol. up AND down) will work with the 520? I'm looking for something on the inexpensive side. I can't even find any at Headsets & Headphones for Mobile Phones - Accessories - Microsoft - USA

    Nope. I reviewed several and I don't see that they have volume controls. I'll buy one without volume control if I have to but if there's one with it I'd rather have that.

    After reading the wirecutter review I bought and am quite happy with my brainwavs ear buds. See if they meet your needs.

    Yes! I read about the problems and the fix and it sounds good. Someone on Amazon confirmed it should work with Nokia phones. I assume the volume controls work or else you wouldn't have recommended it. (the volume controls work, right?) I'll just do a little more research before buying. I hate when the title of an ad says something like "For Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod & Other Apple iOS Devices" when it also works with Windows.

    There's a model for the iPhone and a different model for Android according to this video. I'm afraid to order now.

    I think I found a couple. AJays 5 and Nokia Purity. The Purity is on that Microsoft page that I had checked. I thought I read that the volume controls don't work but now I'm reading that they do. The only problem is the build quality. The problem with the AJays 5 is the weight of the cord causing the buds to fall out of your ears. But at least I have two options.

    My mistake. The brianwavs android version do not work for controlling the volume up and down.
