Using the Headphone button to answer calls and play music

Did you know that the headset included in the box has a button located at the microphone.

When listening to music:
press the button once to pause the music.
press it twice to advance to the next track.

When and incoming call comes in:
Press the button to answer the call.
After the call press the button to hang up and the Pre will continue playing the music where you left off.
Now you dont even need to miss a beat, when the Pre is out of sight, while listening to your music.

Wondering why the headphones have shiny circles on their sides? They are small magnets that will
allow you to keep them around your neck when you are not using them...

Hey thanks Levi, I knew about the button and answering calls but I don't recall seeing anything written about controlling music nor did I think about trying. Great tip.

Kudos from me.

P.S. to bad it was buried in the depths of the new forum until someone dragged it out!

I realized the button paused music while doing nautilus weights at the gym. Never knew it advanced the songs though!

When you have the magnets touching and are looking at the speakers, the one on the right is right channel so then the left is left. I use the head phones when I watch hulu on my laptop. Most comfortable ones I own.
