    I'm making the switch from iPhone to Android today, but one feature I will be sad to lose is the multi-button control on my apple EarPods. I've gotten used to the ability to play, pause, control volume and skip/navigate in songs and podcasts. I also like that the earbuds are hard, rather than soft with caps on the end.

    I've been trying to find a similar pair to work with my new Nexus 6, but have had little luck. It appears that the affordable options for what I'm looking for (rigid design, multi-button control, cost) are limited. I'm thinking about getting a pair of Amazon Premium headphones if only because they are cheap and have the possibility of control, but the reviews are extremely mixed as to whether or not they will actually work for what I'm interested in.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for earbuds that would work for me? I've also seen some information suggesting that apps could be used to supplement the functionality of some earbuds, which I'd consider if they looked like a decent match.

    Thanks for any advice!

    I use LG Tone Pro's (they're bluetooth) and absolutely love them!

    They have all the controls you mentioned as well as a button to answer/end calls. I got them when they were on sale for $50. Not sure of what your budget is but you might wanna check them out.

    For headphones, I use wired ones cause I hate worrying about batteries... These work great, including media controls. I'd assume the current versions work as well.
