    Dear TPU'ers,

    My wife asked me to find a headset for her Android 2.3 phone (standard 4pin 3.5mm).
    She's no audiophile, and has got only few requirements:

    - wired
    - stereo
    - has microphone (headset)
    - usable for sports (earhook type preferred)
    - has volume control/next track/call pickup button

    As far as I know, all (of them zillions) iPod/iPhone headsets are no-go (different pinout on 3.5mm).

    After I began my search I couldn't believe there's such scarcity of such products...
    The only thing I've found is Philips-SHS8105A-28.
    And it's only in US. (Available in UK via import for £35) WTH ?

    Does anyone know / can recommend any other good, non-audiophile headset for Android phone ?

    Cheers,

    Phonak ships their high end in-ears with ear hooks as well I do not know whether their entry level models come with them but they more than $100. Sennheiser makes quite a few models maybe have a look at their stuff. Otherwise you can buy a set of normal in-ears and purchase some standard hooks and put on those.

    I hope you find something nice!

    Cheers,
    Fred
