    Since i've used iPhone the last little while, all the earbuds I have are specifically made for iPhone functions with respect to volume control, switching between music tracks etc. I know the microphone still works as I've tested my earbuds with my Nexus 7, but I can't control the volume with the earbuds.

    Does anyone have any recommendation of earbuds that work with Android devices and include volume buttons/track changing buttons?

    Don't the beats earbuds that come with the rezound have volume and track buttons? I think most HTC one's do.

    No idea, the Nexus 7 is the first android device i've owned and the Nexus 4 will be the first phone. Just looking for some recommendations.

    I'm afraid I wont be much help there, I usually don't use earbuds, but if I do there ones from past devices i've owned while running or at the gym.

    Beats by Dre should work, you could buy a pair of htc (not the beats but their cheap ones) of ebay, their not the best.
    Apparently these:
    List for headset and headphones that work all three buttons & mic
    - urbeats
    - htc beats solo
    - Sony smart headset
    - Nocs NS200H (you can download Nocs app for 3 button or 1 button version)

    just to let you know. The ones that work android are all 1 button, not 3 buttons. yes beats headphones work for htc phones, but I'm not sure If they work for other phones. I had given up looking for a 3 buttons headphone that work with Android. I now use a bluetooth headsets instead. they are the only ones that have buttons that can control all your functions.

    I bought these as well, and they sound good, but JB breaks volume control. Long press defaults to Google Now. I picked up the Ultimate Ears 985-000359 Logitech 350vm Noise Isolating Headset - Grey (for android) for the gym, and I really like them. They have physical volume control and sound as good as the Klipsch.

    Wish I had read this before I bought. I installed the Klipsch control app but the button doesn't seem to work even for play/pause of tracks. Am I missing something?

    Regular headphone jacks are too long. I can insert the headphone jack, but it sticks halfway out... are there SHORT headphone jacks that fit this type of plug?

    Googled it and found that the jack is very tight. You have to push hard to get it in. No jokes about Virgin Mobile.
