    New to the forum ( posting wise!! ) I've been creeping a bit since I had my origional droid, then droid X, now the SGS3!! I love it. Now the headphones it comes with.. not so much. I think the sound quality is okay... but for me, I'd like to see something else.. any suggestions? I'm also fine with bluetooth headsets as well.

    I may be missing something but the stock s3 headphones aren't bad. Add poweramp as your music player and you'll see but I admit I haven't used the mic portion so I can't speak to that.

    Fantastic...
    The design rocks and I wear them 10 hours a day, 6 days a week !
    They actually seem to be better with my sgs3 than my Razr Maxx

    The best part about Zagg smartbuds it's their warranty

    Shure Se215(I'd personally lean towards a 425 or 535 red) with a mic cable, or (if you've got a bigger budget), any Westone IEM with removable cables with their EPIC MICS cable. Great sq for the price and if the cable ever dies outside-of-warranty, you can just get another cable. The cables are very robust and durable anyways.

    Westone has a 2 year warranty if purchased from an authorized retailer as well. Monster's turbine PRO line might also fit the bill here, since they have a lifetime warranty. If it breaks, just rma it for another one.

    Compatible Wired Headsets

    If you have a Galaxy S3 and you're using a wired headset (where the mic works for voice calls), can you let me know what they are?

    I'm trying to find a wired headset I can use to listen to music with and also handle phone calls. I don't really like bluetooth.

    I have these: Fix Bud - Black/Black w/Mic - Earphones/Earbuds - Headphones but the mic doesn't work with it.

    Are there any headphones/earbuds or whatever that sit in the ear like the iPhone? I must have awkwardly shaped ears because of all different size cushions that come with the the S3, none if them stay in my ear for more than 5 steps when I walk or 1.5 minutes while sitting or standing. I've looked all over and all the suggestions seem to be the ones you slam into your ear canal.

    I have tried a handful of Plantronics and Jabra wired headsets and the sound quality is super clear. However, everyone on the other end tells me I sound like I am outside with the wind blowing and they have a hard time hearing me. I'm on my third headset and still no luck finding a wired headset where people say they can hear me ok. My previous phone was a Droid X and I used to ask people about the sound and they couldn't tell if I was on a headset or not. I use my phone for many hours a day, and really prefer a wired headset and preferably one that has a boom toward my mouth to lessen the chance of picking up background noise. I tried a bluetooth JawBone headset on my droid X, but I just didn't like many things about it and really prefer a wired headset. Anyone have suggestions on what is causing the problem or what headsets with mics work well? Someone recommended a 3.5mm noise isolator for listening to audio in a car 3.5mm aux input jack to eliminate noise, and I am tempted to try that for my headset but since I'm only having mic issues I am not really confident it will work. Thanks
