Bluetooth music remote for android phone

Hey guys,

I already got a Sena but I think I'm going to sell it and go back to ear buds. I got a great set of earbuds that works like ear plugs as well. I think I actually prefer that over the increased wind noise that makes the music hard to hear at high speeds. I also thought of connecting my ear buds to the Sena but that's an expensive music remote.

So basically, I want to get some sort of Bluetooth remote that interfaces with my android phone that with allow me to switch tracks and adjust volume. I already saw a few off amazon but wanted to check in first see if anybody has recommendations. Thanks!

I know of some headphones that have the controls built in, like the apple ones. If you went this route you would just need to make sure they're compatible with your phone. My apple headphones never worked on android, and nothing but the apple headphones ever worked on my iPhones. Not sure if there was something I didn't update or what.

As for a remote I can't help you there. I have no idea. Will any Bluetooth remote work, or does it have to be Android specific?

I often wear leathers with the cord going directly into my suit so it doesn't get caught in anything or the wind, so I cannot really fumble with anything on the wire.

I don't know how great cross compatibility is with those devices, they might be cross compatible, but figured I'd mention I have an android just in case.

I just route mine so the control box is between jacket/leathers and chin. It took some getting used to for finding it on the fly, but is quite easy now that I have a trick for it.

Never tried this, but seems like it might do what you're looking for. Might be able to use the steering wheel mounting option somehow to mount it to your bike as well.
