    Default Earbuds that will work as a volume controller and mic that are compatible with the Note 3?

    My Note 3 did not come with the earbuds that Samsung usually includes with their new Galaxy phones. Can someone tell me good, high quality, noise canceling earbuds that have a mic, and a volume rocker that are compatible with the Note 3?

    Thanks in advance.

    hum mm, Another iPhone convert like me I bet. I have looked for the same thing as you with no luck. I've got BOSE, Klipsch, Apple, and another brand? NONE do what you (we) want. The Klipsch folks say they should have volume control with the app, but on the Note 3 holding down button only brings up S voice ( I think) or some other app. Maybe someone else can prove me wrong, but that is my experience. I have an LG HBS 700 Bluetooth head set I use when riding my HD MC and it works great. Volume, pause, calls, fwd-rev. features all work like they did with my iPhone. Sorry I don't have better news but I Bluetooth is the best answer.

    Good luck.

    Yea. Would have to second this. I have the LG Tone+ hbs 730 bluetooth headset. I am no audiophile but they sound good to me. And all the controls appear to work as implied. Only complait is that some have commented on background noise.

    All bluetooth ones will work but as for wired ones I would imagine that the galaxy ones would be a better bet for you.

    The ones that came with my S3 work great on the Note 3. Volume up and down work as well as pause and play. You can buy the HS330 headset from Samsung for $29.99.

    I agree, except, go to eBay, and buy them there for about $5 a pop. I have bought several, and they work great. Make the search "OEM Samsung Galaxy Note 3 headset."



    Or just "OEM Samsung Galaxy headset"

    Yeah you must be right, my friend must have put his in the box to fool me because I'm with ATT. He got his at Best Buy on the first day Verizon released them and that must make me wrong. But hey, I don't know everything like others do.

    So I've been doing a ton of research on this over the last couple of weeks since I got my Note 3. I've been wanting a nice pair of on-ear cans (I hate earbuds) that had included in-line controls for volume and track skip/pause/answer calls, stuff like that.

    And I came up empty. Nothing. There is literally no third party on-ear headphones with a remote that works with Android phones. Everything is made to work natively with iOS devices. I DO have a pair of Klipsch S4A earbuds that were designed for Android, but like I said, I hate earbuds, they are uncomfortable, I cannot get a good seal on them and they sound like garbage. I ultimately decided that I wasn't going to find wired, portable, on-ear cans with an Android-compatible inline remote. So I ignored that feature set and focused more on audio quality for the price point I was looking at ($199 or below).

    So I settled on a pair of Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear (they have a larger, Over-The-Ear model for $100 more, but I picked up the smaller On-Ear model). It comes with a three-button inline remote with mic that I wasn't expecting I was going to use, because they do include a straight cable sans remote as well. Plugged it in with the in-line remote cable and it sounded fantastic and was very comfortable. So the deal is, I'm actually getting *partial* functionality with the remote. The two volume buttons do not work, but the middle "multi-purpose" button does, without any extra software too. A single press will pause/play. A double tap will skip to the next track. Holding the button for 2 seconds opens up S-Voice. And the mic on the remote also works flawlessly. When a call comes in, pressing the button will answer the call, and holding it in will reject it.

    I think this functionality is the most anyone is going to get out of a third-party set of wired cans. Even the S4A's don't have volume up/down, instead relegating that function to the same single-button setup. It's not perfect, but it's functional.

    I don't know what shipped on release date, but what ships now does not come with headphones.

    Let me repeat my above post. Pleeyuz, people. There is no problem Just use the same headset that comes with the Note 2 or S4. You can get them from US sellers on eBay.


    Or



    I mean, sheesh! All the buttons function (volume up, down, pause, double push the pause button to skip to the next song, etc.) right out of the box, no special apps needed.

    I use JayBird products. I've never had an issue with any of them. I have the bluebuds x, and I bought comply memory foam tips. They sound awesome for bluetooth. They are guaranteed for life against sweat, and the microphone and volume controls work great with my n3

    The stock ones only work with the stock player?

    I don't use the stock player and I can get the volume rocker to work and sometimes the pause button. The skipping tracks function doesn't work though.

    I didn't say the stock ones work only with the stock player. I use them with Google Play Music and the Samsung player. The pause and skipping tracks functions work.

    I too am looking for a set of decent android earbuds, that have volume and track controls. I hate the stock samsung ones.
