    Hi, I have a question regrading headphones that are compatible with the Lumia 830 that have volume, pause/next/prev controls. Are there any good in-ears that aren't too expensive?
    Or, are there any relatively cheap in-ears you would recommend for the phone?

    I've had a 620, 630, and 830. On my 620, headphones with iPhone controls didn't work. I scrounged around for a pair that had a single universal button. I ended up with a pair of Philips Fidelio M1 (on-ear). I initially was shipped a pair of M1i, which had the 3 button iPhone control. Philips makes in ear versions S1 and S2. However, on the 630, and 830, my at home pair of Fidelio L1 which only had iPhone style controls, the button works. Once for pause, twice for next, and thrice for back. I *think* with the 830, most headphones with iPhone controls should work, but be advised that the volume up/down won't work.

    This set has working Volume, Pause/Play, Next/Previous controls and a MIC to use with Cortana and phone calls. Only the S100A model works for Lumia though (and says so on the box and manual).

    First, thanks for the two advices. Sadly, these once are really expensive, my pocket would not allow more than 20 for headphones. Are all those with the controls and compatible with the 830 that expensive?

    You could look into Sound Magic E10

    They have a newer version the E10s that has a built-in smartphone controls.

    What's cool about that set, they have a switch in the plug that swaps ground/mic, so you can use it with some phones that don't use the Apple standard 3.5mm pinout.
