I really, really HATE the headphones that came with the Note II. They fall out of my ears within moments no matter what tips or whatever I try. The only solution I have been able to find is NOT using them. I am currently using my old Sony Fashion Ear buds and I like that shape, etc. because they stay in my ears. NEVER had a problem with them. I would even be willing to go sport clip-on but I CANNOT go back to the standard ear buds. Does anyone have any suggestions for volume-controlling headsets that are the flat version of the standard? The volume control is a must or no deal--I'll just keep using the fashion ear buds.
