Thread: Bluetooth Headphones Suited for BeyondPod?

    Bluetooth Headphones Suited for BeyondPod?

    I just discovered Bluetooth (4.0) speakers that have physical "pause," "rewind" and "fast-forward" button, which make listening to podcasts on BeyondPod a real pleasure. I've seen a few Bluetooth headphones that also have these buttons, but they are advertised as functioning to skip songs (so I'm not sure they'll activate BeyondPod's "rewind 20 seconds" function, as I'd like.)
    Just wondering if anyone could recommend a set of headphone (i.e., cups over both ears with band over your head) that works well with BeyondPod?
    Thanks in advance. Jon

    As far as the button functions are concerned, you can configure in BeyondPod (Player Settings) what you want each button to do.

    The Henson headphones are excellent and work well with BP. I bought them a few weeks ago and would recommend.

    Thanks. Do you find the control buttons easy to find while wearing?

    Reasonably easy, but they are a bit small. The two volume buttons are on the back, and play/pause & skip on the front, which helps, when I remember ☺

    I found these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A1M0GZGHL8F7T8
    which look interesting because of the touch pad control. (I may have below-average attention control or listen to overly-abstruse podcasts--but either way I find myself rewinding a lot and being able to swipe to rewind seems like could be a great feature.)

    They do look good, might consider them if I need to replace mine

    For the record, I received the Photive's with the touchpad and found them horribly uncomfortable.
    (I'm going to exchange for the U.S. version of ones your recommend--some reviewers have noted they're extremely comfortable.)

    Interesting. Mine are very comfortable, but they are 'on ear' rather than 'over', not sure if that's what you want?
