    Handy tip - headset controls need the phone to cooperate with the headset (duh), but the good news is that there are apps for that.

    Search headset control in the Play Store. ;)

    How do you find the reception with the Evo LTE? Do you run into similar situations as I mentioned above?

    The Jaybird Secure fit BT buds I picked up have been working nicely. Good fit and sound.

    I need some help deciding between the Plantronics Backbeat 903+ and the Motorola S10 HD's. Both are similarly priced, and i'd like to make the purchase of either online tomorrow at the latest. Anyone have any first-hand good/bad reviews of these?

    My main use of these will be gym use, mostly running on the treadmill, but some weightlifting as well. Sweat/waterproof is a must, I've lost close to 50lbs and that don't come by staying dry LOL I don't need any "phone" capabilities, it's all 100% music and flipping through tracks or volume control can be done just as easily on the phone as with the headphones, it's not a plus/minus for me. I'm wanting to stay around the $50 mark, as i'm no audiophile, i'm just tired of hitting the cord on my earbuds on the treadmill and sending my phone flying backwards at 7mph ;)

    I am happy with the S10HDs. But I have not tried the other ones you have listed. I have also not sweated on them yet. Plus for the S10HDs is you can get them at costco, so if you break or hate them, you can return them.

    I saw them at walmart, but they wanted $70. Ebay has them for $48.99 refurbed, $52 new, but I just placed the order on Woot for $30 refurbed. Good lookin' out! :)

    NP. I bought several sets last time for the family and just bought a couple more. At only $25 each and $5 shipping regardless of the number ordered they become disposable (especially since the battery can't be replaced).

    I noticed the Motorola's have pretty mediocre reviews.

    The LG Tone HBS-700's have good reviews in your prince range.

    I'd been eyeballing those for a couple weeks, but my main concerns with them were 1 - placement of the neck-piece. That's a pretty bad location for gathering sweat, it'd basically sit either on top of or under a sweat-soaked shirt the entire time. 2 - physical movement. Since that neck-piece basically just lays flat and helf down by gravity, it seems like it'd be either prone to bouncing as i ran, and/or would shift around alot when on the bench. I'm still curious to see how Motorola's design will work on the bench too.

    Ive been using the LG HBS700 for these and theyve been good so far.. at first I had a few Bluetooth connectivity issues but now they work pretty well... it adds a little more volume to the audio..

    I also use some wired Sony Piiq earbuds and those work GREAT with the Beats Audio feature.. I bought my buds for like 8 bucks..

    Does anyone have any suggestions on earbuds that you can use the volume control and track control on with the phone? I have seen that most of them that have this option only work on the stupid iphone. Do any work on ours that will not kill my pocket book? Need some new ones and would like to get some that those options work on. Was thinking about the Zagg ones but I think those only work on iphone as well. Thanks for any help. :eek:

    I've had my backbeat 903's since my palm pre days and I consider them one of my best purchases ever.

    They are so comfortable I sometimes forget I even have them on. Sound quality is nice for a multi-purpose unit (with built in bass booster for those who like that). The only issues I've ever had with the music controllers on htc phones were caused by an app conflict.

    I highly recommend them.

    ive had some Motorola HT820 bluetooth headphones for wireless and they havent failed me yet. I have had them since my ppc6700 days and they still sound better than any other bluetooth headphones. For some buds, I have been rocking urbeats which I like because of the bass(have always wanted headphones with bass to it)

    I'm looking for the best wireless headphone to pair and work perfectly with samsung galaxy s3, but not sure which ones works. If any works with S3... I've read articles saying that none of these good wireless headphones pair with the S3. Someone could tell me if there is any good wireless headphone that works with galaxy s3? If yes, what is the best option?

    Hello everyone, I received the S4a's for Christmas but I have noticed a problem when using the double and triple click.

    With the Klipsch App enabled or disabled when I perform a double or triple click the phone will call the most recent call. I have tried to remove the call option from the app but it still does the same thing.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? and if so how can I fix it?

    Nope are you clicking the buttons fast enough? Is the check for conflicting apps setting enabled?

    clear the cache app and reset everything and see if that helps.
