Motorola Droid :: Ear Headphones With Mic - Apple Headphones And Bose
Jun 11, 2010
Is there a pair of in the ear headphones with mic that's in between the apple headphones and bose ones? I've looked into the bose headphones, but that's alot of money to go into some wired headphones.. Does anyone have them, can you say they're worth getting for that cash? I use my phone alot for music, so good headphones are important.
I've read around that the Apple headphones with the microphone do not work with the X. But all the threads I've read that from are from a while ago. What I've learned is that apparently other headphones with mics will work but these will not pickup your voice through the mic, and the volume and click buttons will not work. My question to you is, did anybody get these headphones to work with the mic and buttons? How did you get it to work? It seems to me that it is a software issue because other headphones will work, so has anybody configured there phone in a way to make it happen?
I just bought the Hero, which I love but so far I am not loving that the mic on my apple headphones does not work. Anyone else run into this? The headphones work so I can hear music and such but the mic isn't picking up anything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I've been reading these forums for a while now, and some of these posts are the reason I got a Galaxy myself, imported from Germany
So far I totally love it, but there's this small issue that made me register and finally make a post here.
My previous phone was an Apple iPhone, but I dropped it so the screen broke, and I didn't bother with trying to fix it, so I decided to try something new. Now, what I loved about the iPhone was the headset/handsfree that came with it. It's the best I've tried so far, and that's why I really wanna use it instead of the crap one Samsung bundled with the Galaxy.
Now here's the problem: When I use the Apple headset with my Galaxy, the vocals on music doesn't play, unless I press and hold the answer/hang up/shuffle button on the handsfree. And because of this, it does ofcourse not work as a answer/hang up button. The bundled handsfree works as it should, with normal sound, and buttons.
I have no idea if this is a hardware 3.5mm issue, or a software issue, but all I know is the Apple headset works fine on my brother's HTC Hero, which makes me believe it's less likely to be a software issue.
I'm also reluctant of buying another handsfree, incase the Galaxy only works with the bundled one.
Oh, almost forgot, if it's of any use, I'm running the II5 firmware, updated through NPS.
Just got a SE Xperia X10 and I'm just trying the headphones. I have a pair of Apple Headphones with inline mic in them and whenever i connect it to the phone, the sound is distorted. However with standard Apple Headphones, they're fine. Is something wrong with my device or is it something else?
As soon as I got my Droid X, I have been looking for a pair of headphones that has a mic. However I was walking home the other day with my sony headphones that does not have a mic and called my dad. I was able to speak with him through the X's mic without taking out my headphones. So it was like having headphones with a mic without having it.
I checked out some old threads about this, but didn't find what I was looking for. I'm looking for the best pair of headphones (blue-tooth preferably) to use while running w/ my Droid or just at the gym with it.. I like to run w/ my phone, and have no problem with it in my pocket.
My boyfriend has a Motorola Droid and wants Bluetooth headphones. Does anyone have any recommendations on which would be good to get him? I don't know too much about this stuff and I want to get him a good gift.
I loaded my music onto my Droid recently. When I took it to the gym to work out I was disappointed with how little noise came out of the headphones. I am just using the stock headphones from my iPod. Would another brand give me more volume? And, if so what are some of the loudest you know of?
Loving my new Droid, but having a bit of a problem with the media playback. Once I get a track playing, and the screen is off, it is a major hassle when I want to simply pause for a second to talk to someone. I have to press button, swipe open, then press pause. The way I solved this on the iPod Touch was using the earbuds with the inline remote (even has a mic to use for calls in the iPhone). I am looking for a similar set up earbuds for the Droid, any suggestions?
Anyone else getting a crackling sound out of their headphones when media volume is 100%? If I turn it down one notch the crackling disappears. Headphones are not the issues as I have verified this on 3 different pair. Im gonna see if my wifes droid does the same thing but figured I would post up and see what others thought.
I have a problem on my droid where when I use headphones it crackles and is really annoying. I have a pair of Bose over the ear headphones that have no issue on any other source however on the droid the crackling make me want to throw it across the room. Although many would jump to hardware, the catch is that it is only on random songs and the same ones each time. So it does it randomly on pandora on the same songs every time and not on any in my library but the actual external speaker will crackle on random ones as well. Maybe it will be addressed in 2.1? I know about the one at max volume but this is very different.
Just got the phone today and i cant get enough of it. I am trying to check all the new stuff and am kinda stuck on the tuner. So my understanding is that you have to insert a headphone jack to listen to it and it won't work with the bluetooth headphones. If that's the case then it sucks as I really wanted to use my BT headphones.
Having trouble to get the headphones to work consistently with my DX. I've only gotten it to work once and I have no idea how I did it...When the headphones are plugged in I can hear the caller but they can't hear me, but once I unplug the headphones the normal mic input on the phone works correctly and the caller can hear me just fine. Are there settings that I need to adjust in order for the iphone headphones to work with DX?
I'm having some totally inexplicable trouble with a pair of Sennheiser MM200 Bluetooth headphones I just picked up.When I first got them set up, they paired just fine with my Moto Droid (latest firmware, 2.0.1). I was able to listen to music great, talk on the phone, etc., for a few hours.Then for no reason they became disconnected. I checked the bluetooth status and it said they were "Paired but not connected". I tried connecting, but it would simply say "Could not connect".So, I unpaired them and started the headphones up on pairing mode again. Now, the Droid can't even detect them, at all.
This went on permanently. I restarted the Droid, pulled the battery, turned bluetooth on and off, paired it to another bluetooth device, I even reformatted the damn thing! STILL can't see my MM200 headset! What's worse is that my wife's BlackBerry Storm can see them and pair with them just fine! Every time.But to my Droid, they have become completely invisible.
I have a pair of Dr Dre Beats Solo headphones. Theses are equipped with a mic and inline controls for answering calls/pausing the music. The problem I have with my DX is that when I plug in the headphones, it will automatically dial the most recent # in my call log. Anyone else have this issue? Is there a setting somewhere and I just cant find it? Also the Mic inline does not work, it uses the phones mic from what I can tell.
I have had my Droid since release day, and I am still carrying an iPod Touch as well. My problem is that I keep getting problems with audio playback using headphones with an inline remote. For me, it is absolutely essential to be able to pause/play audio when out and about. People talk to me, I get up to the checkout stand, etc. And, the process of pulling the phone out, swiping it on, getting to the app and pressing pause just won't work. Headphones with inline remotes are the only thing that really work for me.
The problem is that the Droid can't seem to play nicely with these remotes. The volume controls never work at all, and sometimes the pause/play works, sometimes it acts like a skip to the next track. Sometimes it just freaks out and starts cycling through my various audio apps (Listen, Pandora, the stock music app) and then eventually freezes. Has anyone found a workable way to do what I want? I need to be able to pause and play audio while the phone is entirely stashed away.
This is kinda hard to explain but whenever I plug in headphones into my droid if they move a certain way it screws up and stops playing. It goes in and out too if I turn the jack while its plugged in. I tried several headphones that I know have no problem with them. Has anyone else had this problem? Also if you still don't get what im trying to say let me know.
I forced to 2.2 and now when I unplug my headphone jack from the phone pandora will keep playing. With 2.1 it would turn off and I like it that way. Is there any way to change this, is there a setting or is it the 2.2 software problem.
Well the problems started 3 weeks ago when i noticed whenever i move around the headphones inside the jack, the music stops or one of the ear buds stop working. so i thought it was the headphones since skullcandies don't last long. i got a new pair and listened again but it STILL HAPPENED . (btw, the phone is not rooted)
The Phone still plays media fine without the headphones, so i thought no big deal. NEW PROBLEMS started to occur. The phone would NOT PLAY Media files whatsoever. (games, music, notifications, APPS ) every time it happens i have to restart the phone.
So on my way to class the other day listening to the media player in the car was just fine, I plug it in to one of those little FM transmitter things and it bounces along under my e-brake handle just fine. But when I parked my car and plugged in my headphones things went bonkers. It started skipping tracks, fast forward, and rewinding tracks, and finally started calling people, I called a friend of mine 4 times. When it started doing it again tonight I did some investigating and discovered that it's recognizing my headPHONES as a headSET. I tried it with my roommate's headphones and it started as headphones but if I twisted the plug the little microphone would appear.So I guess this is a 2 part question.
1.) Can I turn off the microphone of a headset through the phone?
2.) Has anyone else encountered this problem and how did you fix it?
Haven't been around these parts in awhile, but news of the update brought me back. I have a question about an issue I've had since day 1, but always just kind of accepted. When I listen with headphones to podcasts, music, etc. I get weird signal noise. It's most noticeable when listening to podcasts/talk as there is lots of room to hear the noise on the line. It's like low little hums, "chirps," not totally sure how to describe it. Just not a clean, clear silence when there should be silence. I've used different headphones, definitely not anything there. I'm wondering if this is a known issue, a problem with some handsets, fixable, etc.?
Someone please tell me I'm an idiot and searching the wrong place for this setting but I have no music when headphones are connected but can take calls on wired headset so I know it works. . . I have sound when Bluetooth headphones are connected. When no headphones are connected music does not play thru speaker either.
I have only installed last.fm in the last week and have since uninstalled It..... yes my volume for ring and media are set all the way up. I'm muted somehow here. Any ideas?
I went to use my Eris as a music player for the first time. I plugged in my headphones and tested it out by playing a song. The song plays loud and clear through the headphones, but also plays loud and clear through the phone speaker/earpiece. I could not figure out why it would not just play through the headphones. (I have tried a pair of apple earbuds, as well as basic Sony ones).
When listening to music via the music player through headphones, any movement of the headphone input in the headphone jack causes tracks to FF it seems. i.e. If you spin the cord while in the jack, or even if you just push it in farther to see if it is fully seated tracks will FF. Not a showstopper, but I wanted to put this out there and see if anyone can reproduce this or is my phone just weird?
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I've tried 2 different earbuds and 1 casette to mp3 adapter and nothing has worked. It simply keeps playing with the regular speakers. Do I have to activate or allow these accessories somewhere on the phone? Anyone else have this problem?
