I didn't need any special setting on my SGS3 either, but you can try the Media Button Router app if Neutron's setting doesn't work.

Oh, also be sure that Neutron is set to load at background (default). If you set to to quit completely every time, the stock music player will take over and create chaos from time to time.

On my HTC phone the media controls (Bluetooth or otherwise) just tend to respond to whichever media app last had focus, so if I pause the stock player and jump into Amazon's player and hit play they'll control that... Unless enough time has passed that it got kicked out of memory, then it reverts to the stock player by default.

I can't remember if Headset Button Control responds to Bluetooth track controls or if it's just for wired headsets, but it has a pretty useful diagnostic for button presses (and multiple presses etc.).

Thanks everyone. I needed to enable the following in Settings --> Headset/Line-Out/Controls --> Enable media buttons for playback control.

 

So far no need to enable the Neutron Music Player app to remain in background.

Wow!

 

Coming from the MW600, which has low power, and clips badly - the MW1 is a total revelation...

 

Not to mention, as discussed ad-nauseum that the MH1 earphones are surprisingly good, makes this a virtual steal!!

 

My one is running the original 'A' firmware - if I can find B, C, or D (no idea, but just theorising) knowing that E is borked currently, is there any one of those that I should try and find as a priority for the firmware?

 

Thanks :)

With what headphones and/or at what volume were the MW600 clipping for you?

The Sony Update Service software can also flash the firmware of the MW1. Last I checked, the version offered via SUS is version D.

 

Luckily for me, cos that is how I managed to revert back from the problematic version E.

 

BUT I do not know if the version on SUS is still version D. Let's hope so!

It is still D, as I did revert my MW1 back from E to D last night (*accidentally, as I was trying to check whether there is a new firmware or not). If you update via Play Store or Smart Connect app, then it will be E.

 

I actually has no problem with E firmware on my MW1 with Xperia TX, but do notice sluggishness with Galaxyy Tab 7+ with E but not D. Anyway, do update to D firmware if you have not done so, and you can find the SUS (Sony Update Service) tool here: http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/software/accessories/smart-wireless-headset-pro/

Hi ClieOS,

 

How's that Samsung HS3000 review going on? Any time frame you'll be publishing your mentioning review?

Here is a preview. Sorry, I can't really say a fixed time for sure.

 

Bass is a little roll-off but not too big of a problem. The EQ it has isn't really great. The stock IEM is crap. Beside those, the BT unit itself is quite good sounding. If you are on a budget and only want the BT unit itself, HS3000 is a pretty good choice, consider that it can be found on much cheaper price than MW1. However, don't get it from eBay as many are fake. Alternatively, the newer Sony SBH20 isn't too bad either.

Hi Impulse...

 

This is a weird one actually - using bluetooth it is pretty much any head / earphone that gets crippled when going over about 70% volume (now, being in the EU, I could have an EU crippled device which makes it naturally quiet, or - a faulty unit!?) - However - using the radio, there is no such distortion...

 

No idea why, however - with the MW1, I get no problems whatsoever - a much fuller sound...

 

Thanks to everyone for advising about SUS - updated to the 'D' firmware as advised...

 

Not exactly sure how the extra functions work on the Xperia, installed them all, but - that is a different discussion for a different forum ;o)

post #73 of 177
Hmm, I don't go much past 50% on my MW600 (with my V-moda M-80, even lower with IEM I think), but I guess that depends on source volume too... At least on my phone the Bluetooth volume remains adjustable independently of the MW600's own volume (phone's is always maxed since I also use BT in the car and found that to work best).

I don't think I've tried my MW600 with my old iPod touch or a PC yet; and I've yet to do a meaningful comparison between the MW600 and the phone's output (or my Clip Zip), I've been meaning to tho...

Just reverted my MW1 back to D from E. 

 

I don't know if there is a list of problems, but the radio seems to be slower and the seek didn't work.

 

The other problem was when you play from the SD card using the Random function. If you skipped about 10 tracks the MW1 would re-boot.

 

Now I'm back at D its operating better.

ClieOS,

 

Thanks for the preview. 

Did you happen to try HS3000 with Samsung very own Galaxy S3 and Note2 cellphone?

 

Below some of my own conclusion for Samsung HS3000.

 

Coupled HS3000 with Samsung Galaxy S3/Note2, the default Music Player provide are much better sounding than any 3rd party software under default Nomral EQ setting both on the cellphone and the bluetooth unit. With S3/Note2 and HS3000 combined, it's by far the most cleanness, livelier and better sounds separation MP3 playback I've heard so far, when side-by-side comparing to Motorola S705, Sony MW600 with the my TDK-200. I've remembered my old and gone i.Tech MC803 did not sound that good too. The much better sounding I've think most probably was because the S3/Note2 default Music Player was streaming the audio with aptX codec. Switching to any other 3rd party music players, they did not sounded as clean and livelier.
