    Default Android and headphones

    Coming from an iphone I noticed that any android phone I've had has problems with Bluetooth and wired head phones. When I won't to stop or play my podcast it works sometimes but not all the time EX: after answering a phone call. Can someone help me?

    The headphones have to be compatible with Android. The iPhone ones don't work for phone calls or pausing music and most other brands are made for the iPhone.
    Which ones are you using?

    I think so there is some problem with the earphones. Try to change the same. Upon doing that I think so it will work properly.

    I realize there are different head phones for iOS and Android. I use the Bose IME2 and dogcatcher but after I take a call or text you someone I have to manually go and restart the podcast and then the headphones will work. There just somethings that are not as seamless
    one more thing why are there no headphones with volume buttons. Is it that hard to implement?

    I have seen posts from people about headphones with working volume buttons but I have yet to see an actual, professional review here or on any of the other review sites. If someone has seen one, can you please post a link?

    I haven't seen any reviews, but there are a lot of them made specifically for Android phones. I don't see why the volume control wouldn't work

    Perhaps so, but I still want to see a professional review. Also, I have yet to come across a manufacturer's site which specifically states volume controls will work on an Android 4.0+ device.

    The S4 II requires the Klipsch app for the controls to work. Per the app in the store:

    "Volume Control (Android 4.0.3 or later) The volume control function in the Klipsch Control app is overridden by the system command to launch voice search."

    I actually use the original S4A set every day. It is a single button control with mic. The app let's you customize the action of the button to control the volume........ on pre Android 4.0 devices.
