How are people using 3rd party headphones with remote?
Sorry if this has been covered but I wasn't able to find any concrete answers via search...but what are people using for 3rd party headphones with the iPhone 4 with a remote?
I have some great headphones which sound much better than the included apple headphones. I'd love to replace my old school clip on shuffle with my iPhone, but I love how I can clip my shuffle to my jacket and have instant access to controls (volume, advance, rewind). I don't want to have to keep taking my iphone out of my pocket to have to adjust volume or change tracks, but I don't want to use the apple headphones.
So are there any accessories (apple or otherwise) which are essentially just a remote that I can plug my headphones into which controls the iPhone? I ordered something on amazon which looks like it would do it, but it is of poor quality and doesn't work too well. I got it from j & r - audio technica at-mp100.
It doesn't advance the songs consistently and when I click the button the volume rockets up and it doesn't pause like it's supposed to. So....it's no good. Any other suggestions? Or am I stuck with my old shuffle?
