    Does anyone know of any headphones that aren't noise cancelling? The headphones that came with the Note 2 are noise cancelling and therefore I can't use them.

    I'm looking for buds, similar to the ones that come with Apple iPhones that offer control over play/pause and volume that don't have noise cancellation.

    Reason I don't want noise cancellation is I use them at work, and I need to be able to hear people around me.

    I searched and found a couple threads on headphones, but all the recommendations I seen were either bluetooth or noise cancelling. It seems like a hard find now a days as most headhones, even the cheap ones are going toward noise cancelling.

    For now I'm using my old Apple iPhone earbuds, it's just I can't control the volume which is annoying.

    I go headphones with my note 2. Just earbud ones with rubber bits to put on the ear pieces.

    I use Bose IE2. Not cheap ($100) but well worth it.

    Here's one from Zagg. I have a pair I don't use too much, but they seem to work. The only thing noise canceling is the microphone.

    Appreciate all the suggestions. Will take the time to look into them all.

    Just off hand, those AfterShokz look pretty interesting. Never seen or heard anything like that. Really neat technology.

    Oh and ATT I believe is the only carrier in North America not to offer headphones with the Note 2. I'm not sure why, but all others have them, including the Canadian carriers. They are decent enough headphones for what they are, just not good if you want to hear your surroundings. :P

    Yes they are. In fact, I'm thinking about getting one too. LOL

    Here's more from their site if you wanna check it out.

    Verizon didn't provide them either.
