    Default Ear buds or HeadSet (Q)

    Nexus 7 running JB 4.2. unlocked and rooted. I can't seam to get the the volume up and down and pause play buttons to work on any of my headsets. I have ones from an iPhone and 3 or four like the Logitech Ultimate Ears 600 Noise-Isolating Earphones. I have tried Akimbo player, Audiobook Player 2 and the stock Play Music. I have also tried Headset Button Controller.
    I have had no luck and its really my only complaint with the first Android device I have owned.
    Any and all help will be much appreciated and I hope I will be helping others as soon as I get up to speed on android.

    PS: Moving from iOS devices.

    The Nexus 7 doesn't support wired headsets, it just has a regular headphone socket. It does support Bluetooth headsets though.

    Pretty much personal preference isn't it ?

    I like earbuds on the road - because they take up less space and weight but use better quality earphones when at home-base because they sound so much better.

    It's one of my big disappointments with my Nexus 7 - the headphone jack is only a headphone jack, and does not have integrated microphone support. That microphone support is what's used by not only microphones, but in-line controllers, and other accessories like the Square payment credit card reader.

    You may want to actually take the time to read the original post in a thread before replying. His question had nothing to do with preference of headphone style (though that's what I was also expecting from the thread title).
    Tablets: 2nd gen Nexus 7 32gb, 1st gen Nexus 7 16gb
    Phone: Droid MAXX

    LOL -- you may want to take the time to find a question in the original post versus the thread title. So which is right, the content without a question or the title ?

    It's all a matter of personal interpretation isn't it ? After reading it all again more literally, I have decided that the gent may perhaps need help finding the volume button and we all missed the point. /sarc

    Hmmm ... doesn't seem to me like you left much of anything open to interpretation in your post.

    Unfortunately, as you've seen in another response, the headphone jack is only for headphones not a microphone or anything else that may try to talk to the tablet.
