Wondering if anybody has come across any good quality headphones with android compatible controls that would be suitable for sports use.
A have a set of monster beats headphones, which have a built in control system. Its designed primarily for iphones, but is (partly) compatible with my htc desire (can pause, fast forward and rewind, answer calls, and hang up, though volume up and down doesnt work).
I was looking for something similar for sports use - running and cycling mainly. Have gotten so used to having controls on the cable that I'm seriously resenting having to fish my phone out of my pocket to fast forward etc when cycling (where controls would be particularly useful) or running.
I have seen the Monster "Power Beats" which are designed for sports use, but are a bit step at €120 ish for a secondary pair of headphones.
I'm also wary that they are part "hook" earphone and part in ear. I know I'm not alone in this, but I can never get those in ear things to stay in my ear. I've read a few amazon reviews which say the Power Beats are good for staying in, but am nevertheless wary.
Would prefer a hook over ear type, rather than hook in ear!
Thanks in advance.
