    Default Using Headphones that have 3 buttons on a Moto X

    Using Headphones that have 3 buttons on a Moto X
    Any way to get these buttons working on a moto X, having issues with headphones that have this functionality (3 Buttons = Pause/Platy, Volume Up, Volume Down). I just tried a reliable headphone (Apple headphones) to ensure it wasn't just the headphones but same issue still persisted.

    Are the headphones specifically compatible with Android? Not all of those kinds of headphones work, especially if they're designed for iPhones. See this thread: Final Soultion: Why Most HEADSETS WON'T WORK

    My 3 button Jaybird Bluebuds work properly with my Moto X.

    Those are bluetooth headphones, I don't have any wired buds that have button controls to test.

    Nope. Samsung has their own slight variant on the standard, too.

    This is why I just gave up and bought a cheap Kinivio Bluetooth headset. Forward, back, volume up/down, and pause/play work just fine and dandy on every phone and tablet I own and my laptop, too. Too many competing standards on the damned plugs.

    Plus, on my Moto X, I can declare my bluetooth headset a "secure device" and it will keep the phone from locking while it's in range. Very convenient little feature when I'm at work, where I have to check my phone fairly often and typing the corporate-required 8-character password with one number and one uppercase letter and one lowercase letter auto-locked after 15 minutes is a real pain in the shorts.

    Have anyone gotten a wired 3 button headset to work with Moto X?
    I have read that many have problems with volume up/down not working.
    From what I understand there is a software update for this. But does it fix vol up/down buttons?

    I don't have my moto x yet, but at work I use the Motorola S10 Bluetooth headphones. I have them on for long periods of time especially when I am doing a big job like today while replacing a clutch. They are very comfortable, and work with my S4 beautifully. I would imagine it would be the same for the moto x I'll report back on Monday when my moto x comes in.
