In-ear headsets for Android?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a great value for the money in-ear headset up to 100-150 USD at the price range and I your need help.

 

My preferences would be:

- operating with Android, preferably with 3 buttons

- the closed the better, I don't want to listen to the outside noise

- great sound for rock and metal, no too bass heavy thou

- LOW CABLE NOISE, I really hate the "bumps" and noise coming from the cable hitting/scrubbing against my clothing!

- bigger drivers, for better sound - I'm not so sure on this...

 

- noise cancellation would be nice, but it's not a must.

 

Currently I'm using Bagis by Urbanears (this one) and I'm not really happy with them. The sound is okay, but the cable noise is just awful. The colder outside is, the bigger the noise. Also, the things are kinda slipping out of my ears caused by the weight of the cable. I miss the volume up and down buttons, too.

 

I really would appreciate your help on this, cheers!

Fyi, Android doesn't support 3 button remotes, they only work with playback controls and not volume.

 

But yeah, I'd take a look at the Fidelio S1 and S2 :smile_phones:

See if you can find the Klipsch ProMedia In-Ear's.

It has a single button with mic on it, only playback controls (single click is play or pause, double click for song skip). Works on my Nexus phone.
The set themselves use similar drivers to the S4, so sound should be great for that price range. Cable noise isn't audible (from my experience)

thank you guys for the help, I will look into these options. 

 

I live in Budapest, Hungary and lot of shops have JBL J22/J33 and Jay's headsets. do you have any experience with these?

Jays do have a 3 button remote for android with their A Jays five but the microphonics (cable noise) is a lot as a result of the thick flat cables. I will still go for the Klipsch Promedia earphones, still prefer it over Jays. The fit is so much better compared to Jays which always seem to fall out my ears.

I disagree with that statment, the impedance used for the buttons are different, something like sony mh1c works nicely, but there's a huge price hike, I got mine at $30USD.

I'm slightly confused here, which statement are you disagreeing with?

The 3 button remote on the MH1c works perfectly on android phones

Which Nexus are you using? I am using a Nexus 5. I had Klipsch S4A-I, I enjoyed them but somehow lost them. Now, I am looking for earphones again. Are ProMedia In-Ear's better than S4A-II? (by the way klipsch website says promedia In-Ear's are discontinued) Thanks.

I used the Galaxy Nexus.
I've heard several times on head-fi that the ProMedia and the S4 use same if not similar drivers. The difference between them should be minimal, I think the remote is bigger on the S4A's but the differences should end there,

I can't believe no one has mentioned Etymotic. HF2 is designed for Android, Blackberry, and Windows. HF3 is designed for iPhone. HF2 have one button (function depends on app). HF3 has three buttons that function like standard iPhone earbuds (when connected to iPhone). Noise isolation is exceptional. Sound signature is neutral. I love the HF3 with my iPhone. I tried them with my Galaxy S4 and the center button is the only one that works with the music app (pause/play). Cheers... Brian
