Lots of headphones have buttons integrated into the sides for convenience. The only problem is that you’ll be fumbling around trying to figure out which buttons are which for a while. If you want to bypass learning button placement, why not get headphones that have the same convenience, but are more streamlined?
The Finger Swipe Headphones work wirelessly through Bluetooth, and are controlled with a simple gesture. Swiping up or down controls volume, forward or back horizontal swipes will change the track. It works with your smartphone as it will halt music when a call is coming in, and has a built-in mic so you don’t have to take off the headset to answer a call. However, if you have non-Bluetooth devices, it has an auxiliary port and cable. This is a $150 buy that can fold up for easy storage. Its rechargeable battery will last for about 10 hours, and will plug in via USB.
