in-line volume does not work with Android Phones
I bought the SHQ3017 to use with my Android phone while commuting and running. Unfortunately the in-line volume control does not work even after trying it with two diffferent Android phones (HTC annd Samsung). Because the spec only mentions iPhone compatibility I had checked with Philips support in advance and they assured me in writing that the inline controls would work with Android. Another issue I have with this headset is that they are uncomfortable to wear after about a half an hour. The headset appears to me to be over-engineered compared to the SH4800. I have used the SH4800 running and cycling in all types of weather and never had any problems with sweat or rain. The SH4800 also fits better and is more comfortable.
