Wired Headsets with Controls
Alright...you can complain about pentile screen, HSUPA, it ain't the atrix, etc but I have a real issue . I've got a $200 pair of headphones that won't work to their full capacity. I've got a pair of Dre Beats which have the inline controls and they won't work with the Atrix. Everytime I push the controller, it dials the last number called. It worked without issue on my N1 with skipping tracks/play/pause.
I don't have any issues with the Rocketfish bluetooth headset...everything works fine.
Has anyone else tried a wired headset with controllers? Did you run into any problems?

Sorry to say, but it will never work. Motorola switched the pinout on the Atrix, Cliq and Xoom to a new standard. You could wire up an adapter cable to switch the two poles.

Not sure if this'll help you but I've got Etymotic HF-5s with inline controls (single button only, no volume control) and they work with the Headset Button Controller app.
I have limited control with the default music app but all I really wanted was next track which works fine.

I have the RF3 Envi set...not sure if the set is wonky or the controls...occasionally it works, as in the voice command thing comes up..sometimes it doesn't.
Though the mic works for calls. I had to long press to pick up the call.
I tried the headset controller app, but it doesn't work me...instead of forwarding as I set, it turns the music player on and off...
And it locks the mediacenter's process to 100% CPU.
Checked that on systemPanel.

Re: Wired Headsets with Controls
Disappointing, not that Motorola changed the pinout, but that they could have at least shipped the Atrix with an adapter or a working headset.
I think Nokia has done this with the new WP7 phones as well.
I can't believe that there aren't even adapters available online - that I gotta build one myself .
