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 ...

Did you update to Android Jelly Bean OS? Samsung Jelly Bean OS doesn't support this feature. Source.

I have a moto X also and I recently bought the QC20. Commands with main button did not work (neither did the micro btw) so I installed Klitch Control and still it did not work. Then, I looked around and changed the audio settings. I turned the audio effects off, and then it started working... (why? don't know) I uninstalled Klitch Control and it's still ...

I've found that it's an issue of Skype application. E.g. Google Hangouts gives good sound quality with and without bluetooth headset both. I've filed a bug report here: https://community.skype.com/t5/Android/Forced-low-quality-voice-with-bluetooth-headsets/td-p/4366926

I procured a second wired headset, and it works with the Maven. However, it does not work with the Galaxy S5. I got out my multimeter and tested each connection on each headset, and found that they are wired differently. The ZTE Maven and my new headset use the CTIA/AHJ standard, and the Galaxy S5 and my old headset use the OMTP standard. The difference ...

I faced a similar situation. Following steps worked for me. Some of the steps might be redudent. 1) restart your phone 2) reset network settings (Setting> back and restore ) 3) change the phone bluetooth name. (I assume this is the solution) 4) set the bluetooth device in pairing mode (long press the power key). And it worked for me. Probably, executing ...

After removing the pairing from the phone, the phone won't be able to see the headset in its normal mode any more. To connect to it again, you need to pair the phone with the headset again. To make the headset visible again, you need to put it into a special "pairing mode" which makes it visible to all devices for a short time. The way of doing this varies ...

I solved the problem. It turned out that Google Assistant prevented the button signal to be read by other apps. Turning off Google Assistant didn't help. I had to turn off a device in a list of devices used by Google Assistant.

Two of the comments made by @AndrewT have suggested to me the good solution: true mono audio shouldn't be a problem when played on stereo speaker (it will play the same waveform on both left & right channel) and the audio source is actually stereo, but the audio is only recorded on 1 channel As the youtube audio in question is not a mono but a stereo ...

Android has two standards OMTP and CTIA/AHJ, whether it is a headset only or a headset with built in mic. Details in answer Why external microphone doesnt work on some Androids (like LG G5) (this likely covers the issue you had with iPhone) OMTP is practically extinct and all headphones with or without mic are CTIA. This distinction is useful to know just ...

I had the same problem with Google Voice Access. I came across these instructions, which seem to be for Google Assistant. Executing them did not seem to affect the desired change in Voice Access, but I think they might work for you with Assistant. The configuration is performed in the main Google app. After opening it, I clicked "⋯ More", then &...

Solution: Factory reset. Finally, after doing all the necessary backups using different tools like adb, Helium(Carbon), Google, Super Backup, I did a factory reset(Soft Reset through the option under Settings > Backup & Restore > Factory Reset) and the speaker phone issue is solved.

I think the OP has already bought a converter and is enjoying the MH1, but in case someone else stumbles upon this, I have Xperia Z2 and an old MH1. I use a Sony Ericsson EC250 adapter. Everything on the MH1, including the mic and all four buttons are working fine. The converter is basically a CTIA to OMTP converter for old phones, but those converters work ...

Personally, I've found software solutions to this kind of thing to be more hassle than they're worth. Do you mind if your devices are physically close to each other? If not, I recommend a cheap hardware solution: 2 x 3.5mm Stereo Male / 3.5mm Stereo Female, 6 inch You could buy a 3.5mm extension cable to give yourself more flexibility if you need your ...

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 ...

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 ...
