    I still use my old Sony earbuds from my retired Discman. No matter what I try out I always fall back to those even though there is no in-line mic or controls. The sound is great, and they are comfortable because they wrap around your ears. This makes the in-ear experience much more pleasant.

    Does anyone have first-hand recommendations on third-party headphones with in-line controls that are compatible with WP7? (E.g. Pause/Next/Previous)

    I know some iPhone compatible ones aren't compatible with other phones so would be nice to have confirmations on some

    Thanks
    Anyone? Bueller?

    mine were a present, and quite frankly, had they not been, I never would have tried them...


    I do want the over the ear ones now, you would recommend the Bose ey? that's what I have my eye on based on my current quality.
    In a heartbeat; they're awesome. :)

    Cheap Ultimate Ears 100s until my Brainwavz M2s arrive. Samsung headset predictably broke. Not much experience with proper over-the-ear headphones because I don't like getting headphone hair.

    If you trust in reviews and anecdotes, perhaps you should check this thread out:

    I searched around and this was the conclusion I reached - you need an adapter. Samsung in particular screws around with its 3.5mm plug, so you need to invert or reverse some stuff with an adapter.

    Not sure if everything will magically work as a result of that, but anything that was made for generic HTC and such should work. I guess you can ask around, but I think it would be a wise choice to contact the company and enquire.

    I asked Meelec and they told me that they stock an adapter that will allow the O7 to interface with their headsets:

    Sorry, in a rush. But you can look around for such things, I do think that keeping away from "Built for iPhone" products is advisable (though will greatly limit the mainstream range).
