I like Apple Earpods. I don't like in-canal earbuds. I just switched to Android, and earpods don't work well. What can I get?
I just switched to Android, and I love my iphone earpods. I like that they have inline controls, I like the sound well enough (I don't really care about sound quality), I like their durability, and I especially like that they're not a sealing, in-ear type. Sealing headphones make my ears itch and block out sound. I have big cans for when I want isolation, I need these for times when I need situational awareness, like when walking.
I found this
, which has similar requirements, but not similar enough.
The Wirecutter recommends this
for people who don't like sealed ears, but that has no mic, play, or volume control.
Earpods fit all my requirements, but the volume adjustment buttons just don't work on Android. Seems to be a hard limitation. I saw an instructable that indicated I could get in and solder on some resistors to make it work, but that's a last resort for me, I've barely ever done soldering.
Does anyone share these preferences and have a suggestion for a set I could get?
