Many people have this problem with Android. You can see it has been reported in Android's bug tracking system. The number of levels is controlled by a setting that's compiled into the Android system image. Use a different ROM It's possible that flashing a custom-rom could increase the number of levels, but I don't know which, if any, custom ROMs do this. ...

I use an Android specified Headset with 3-button for my Nexus. Works brilliant. Not only does it deliver 3-button action, but also very good sound and a really hard hitting bass. Anyone enjoying Rock or Electronica will not stop listening ;-) The headset is specifically made for Android's lower voltage spec from Google and will NOT work on an iphone (the ...

Unfortunately, Android and IOS specify different hardware specs for the remote feature. The way the clicks get registered by the devices are not compatible. Sad, but true. There are very few good solutions that I've found, but I have found a couple. So far, the best I've done is this combination: Samsung makes earbuds with a mic/remote specifically for ...

In Jellybean, when you hit the hardware volume keys, a slider pops up with a settings icon next to it. Tapping on this icon allows you to change the Media Volume: Click image to view larger version

That most likely depends on what phone and interface you have. On, say, a Galaxy S3 with the stock TouchWiz UI, when music is playing in the Samsung player or in Google Play Music, the volume control is enabled at the lock screen. On some other devices, it may not be possible. May I suggest editing your post to include which phone model you have?

That depends on your Android version and device, but based on what you said it seems like you should be able to. You can try Volume in Settings, or you can download Volume Control and control various different volume levels and settings. Several attempts to get this are posted here, but it doesn't seem like some devices have it.

I ended up using this app on my nexus 4 - supports up to 100 volume levels. Its not perfect but should suffice till they hopefully fix what seems like such a simple problem. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=opotech.finevolumev2 Discussed here- http://androidforums.com/android-lounge/490543-volume-control-in-android-os.html

You can use a headset controller app from the playstore (e.g. Jays or Philips Headset or HeadsetButton Controller) to use the "middle button" for that. Might take a few tries to find the correct app (if one doesn't work fine, try another -- I did the same and finally found one working perfectly, see my answer here). I'm not sure if they affect the other two ...

If you are wearing a headset when listening to your podcasts (which I assume), and those are wired and provide a physical button for play/pause, there might be an additional option using physical controls: The playstore offers a bunch of headset control apps -- some of them manufacturer specific, others explicitly manufacturer independent (in praxis, both ...

VLC supports such a feature. It is the official Android version of the world-famous VLC media player. You can change the volume of what you are listening with it while your phone screen is locked. It is available for free on the Google Play Store. VLC is still in Beta status however it is quite stable and it works well. It should be noted that VLC is only ...

In CM they have a hack (or implementation) so that you can change the volume over the lockscreen by pressing the volume up/down key. Also pressing it multiple times will seek/change the track. Now I had two cellphones Optimus one from LG (GB) and another mobistel clone (running ICS) and the CM rom worked for both of them. Firstly requesting, include the ...

When I switched over to Android I started looking for a three button headset compatible with my phone. I found that there are a couple of brands that do earphones for Android but you usually have to use an App to set the functions for button controls. I love good sound in my ears and probably use my earphones 2-5 hours per day. I have tested a couple, I ...
