    I run a lot. I use my Android for music but I HATE having to take out and look at the controls on the display every time I want to switch songs. I miss the ability to click the buttons on the iPod (and Zune :p) on the outside of my pocket as I run without having to look at the device each time. Very easy. Do you know of any solutions to this?

    Headphones with built in controls? My headphones break every 2-4 months because I use them so much so I don't want to spend a ton of money on them.

    I was also thinking maybe some kind of bluetooth remote (or something that connects inline along with the headphones in the audio jack/charging port? Idk) that I could hold as I run and easily change through the songs but again, I don't want to spend $50+ on this and that is the price range I've seen on these so far.

    Thanks for any help!
