    Is there any way to make my apple headphones (the standard iPhone 5 headphones) compatible with my OP3T?
    I know the pause/next button works, but the volume buttons don't.

    On rooted OP3T with xposed.

    Apple headphones does not work well with android phones. Most of the headphone brands have seperate versions of headphone for apple and android phones.

    Its entire Hardware limitations. Not to get too technical but I'll try clarifying.
    Normal 3.5mm Jack headphones uses TRRS configuration (Tip, Ring, Ring, Sleeve) or TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve - without mic).
    Forward, Backward, Play/Pause signals are sent to Ground and
    Volume Up/Down signals are sent to Mic Channel.

    While the entire universe has pinout for this TRRS as Left Audio, Right Audio, Mic and Ground, Apple has slightly different pinouts - Left Audio, Right Audio, Ground and Mic.

    Since last two pinouts are switched, Apple headsets don't fully work with other devices. And also the resistance sent by Apple's volume buttons will not interpreted by Android devices because they are patented by Apple. Simply because Apple wants their customers to use only their products for their precious devices. [e]1f601[/e]

    you cant let this work with your phone... they have different antenna line combination on the Headsetjack pinn... so it would never work for your phone

    it's not about the sound, it's about the control panel on your headphones. like the volume buttons.

    do you also feel like that jack is a bit small for earphone plug and it needs to be pushed considerably harder than normal to insert properly than other phones??
