    do not get sony earbuds, internally the wiring is bad
    you should take a look at this thread for IEM (earbuds) as it will give you better insight

    Lucky for us S3 users samsung used their brain and now use the same pinout as htc/apple and every other manufacturer so you shouldnt have a problem

    Im an audiphile, used to have some sennheiser cx300s but they broke so i needed some good ones that could match them for the same price but had a mic.
    i got these
    MEElectronics M6P over-the-ear sports earphone with: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    they only have a answer/end call button however they can be used to start stop and forward music. with poweramp you can also set it to tap so you can double tap for forward and triple tap for backward

    I've heard that Klipsch Image S4i for android are your safest bet for best headphones within a reasonable price range. Klipsch have been around for awhile so im gonna give these a shot if I get new ones. A Klipsch app is in the play store as well. Supposedly it gives you "full control" over the headphone control buttons.

    Let me know if anyone tries them out!

    Wow.. just noticed u guys are talking about sennheisers... never would've thought they'd make android headphones.. They make the most epic cans of all-time HD-25. Have been using these for the past 10 years to DJ and they are still like new and cannot be beaten when it comes to sound clarity/quality and durability. True studio quality. I'd recommend sennheisers to anybody.

    Without a doubt you might want to consider these:

    Amazon.com: Creative WP-350 Pure Wireless Bluetooth Headphones with Invisible Mic: Electronics

    They support aptX over A2DP which is lossless. The S3 is one the first phones on the market that supports aptX. I've been using them for several weeks and they rival many Senheissers, Grados, and Sony studio monitor headphones over the years. I've owned headphones in the $1000+ range and these are extraordinary given the price. They are also have a decent mike and full bt controls for media.

    Nah mines not a warranty issue. Mines user damage. I still use them, just adjust the balance

    i must say, i dont have experience with wireless bluetooth headsets so i cant really make comment on this. So your take in this is very valid and shouldnt be ignored for that reason.

    I was comparing to wired as i prefer direct audo from DAC without any other changes or enhancements. having said that you have done your testing and found the cheaper one better than the next one up which is interesting.

    The whole point of aptX is that it's direct without any loss. Playing ripped CDS at 320Kbps with wired headphones, the S3 will use it's dacs and amps to drive the headphones directly. With aptX headphones, the intermediate PCM generated from decompressing mp3 is sent directly to the headphones and *its* dacs do the decoding. So with aptx headphones, your at the mercy of the quality of dacs, analog output section, physical drivers, and the tuned enclosure. The last two items being the equivalent of wired headphones.

    Without aptX over A2DP, your pretty much stuck with SBC (SubBand Codec). Even with a bitpool value of 53 which results in a bitstream of 389Kbps or so, it's compressed and lossy but still sounds decent. Unfortunately, the S3 uses a bitpool of 31 which results in unacceptable compression. My previous bt headphones Sony DR-BT50's sounded decent with my droidx but are awful with the S3.

    thats actually really interesting. so basically the creatives dacs, and enclosure are superior to its more expensive brother!!!

    I little on the weak side, but I have had mine for over a year and wrap them around a case with my iPod in my pocket, plus cut grass with them on. Best sounding buds for the money.

    BTW, the GS3 is the first phone that makes me not feel the need to lug my iPod 4 around as well. Same great sound quality. Just wish some of the great games that are not on Android- were.

    Good thing the iPod is small :)
