4 Apple Headphone Hacks to Make Using Your iPhone Easier

Friday, October 11, 2013 12:52:03 PM America/Los_Angeles

Sick of the same old boring white earbuds and want to upgrade to a cooler, louder pair of headphones? You may want to rethink that decision! Here are 4 awesome tricks you can do with your iPhone earbuds:

1. Control Incoming Calls

When you know it's one of those days where you'll constantly be on the phone, plug in your iPhone headphones to control your incoming calls. You can use your headphones to answer the call or ignore the call and send it to voicemail without having to touch your phone. 

To answer the call, just press the center button on the volume control bar connected to the cord on your earbuds. If you want to ignore the call, all you have to do is press and hold that center button for 2 seconds. If you receive a call while you're on the phone with someone else, you can switch calls by holding the center button for 3 seconds.

2. Control Your Music

If you're like me, you're using your iPhone to listen to music while driving, walking to class or lying in bed at night. What you might not know is that you can use your headphones to fast forward and rewind the song you're listening to without even touching your phone. 

To fast forward, press the center button on the volume control bar twice and hold. To rewind, simply triple press the center button quickly.

3. Control Siri

Siri can be your best friend or your worst enemy, depending on her response. I've found that using Siri while having your headphones plugged in makes the experience so much better. First, the closer proximity of the headphone mic allows Siri to understand your commands a whole lot easier than the built in mic on the iPhone. Also, you can use Siri without taking your phone out of your pocket, bag or backpack. 

To activate Siri from your headphones, all you have to do is press and hold the center button on the volume control bar for 2 seconds and you'll hear the familiar Siri pinging sound. This can be a lifesaver if you're behind the wheel and need a hands-free solution for using your iPhone.

4. Control Your Camera

Taking awesome photos can sometimes be challenging on the iPhone. Sometimes weird lighting or awkward angles can make it hard to hit the on-screen shutter button. Other times your fingers are wet or greasy from the meal you just put down. Luckily, you can snap photos quickly and easily with your headphones plugged in by hitting the volume up button (+) on the volume control bar. Now you can get to work on perfecting the art of the Selfie or snap photos of unsuspecting passengers on your commute to work.

These cool iPhone headphones tricks aren't limited only to your iOS device, you can also use them with your MacBook! And when you pair these hacks with one of our iPhone remotes like the iNav Elite, the possibilities are endless!

7 iOS Music Apps to Help You Discover New Music

Friday, September 27, 2013 2:39:03 PM America/Los_Angeles

Now that the Internet is easily accessible through our phones and tablets, the world of music is more wide open than ever. Assuming that you already have Spotify, Last.fm and Pandora, we want to highlight a few of the iOS music apps that we use to discover new songs and artists.

8tracks

On this free app, users can select two adjectives (for example, "chill" and "fun") and 8tracks will then show a list of user-generated playlists that match those terms.

Shazam

Have you ever heard a snippet of a song you liked, but then didn't catch the artist or title? It's infuriating to know that you won't be able to find out what the song was, since you have no means of looking it up. With Shazam, when you hear a song you like, you can have the app "listen" to the song and identify it. Even if you're in a noisy environment or only catch a small portion of the song, Shazaam can be surprisingly accurate. Once you've identified a song you like, Shazaam offers you the chance to buy it on iTunes.

SoundHound

SoundHound is similar to Shazam, but we've found that it can be better at recognizing humming and non-spoken vocals.

Lagu

This app is modeled after the default iOS music function, but has a better queuing system -- great for generating playlists for your next party -- and makes it easier to post updates with customized messages to Facebook or Twitter. Not bad for $1.99. 

Vevo

YouTube's channel for showing music videos now has its own app. Sure, you can use it to watch "Applause" more times than you are comfortable admitting, but Vevo also recommends new artists based on the videos you've watched and rated highly.

SoundCloud

SoundCloud is definitely the eclectic offering of this bunch. It's frequently used by aspiring artists and DJs, so it's an interesting place for unusual remixes or other tracks that, for better or for worse, will probably never make it onto Top 40 radio.

Songza

What helps Songza stand apart from the crowd is that you can tell it what kind of music you want to hear when. Tell it when you're at work and it can auto-select play pump-up music, and when you get home, it will transition to calmer, soothing songs.

At BuyiJet, we love music. That's why we started selling accessories to make listening to music on your iPod, iPad or iPhone easier and more enjoyable. Whether you want to dock your device to your home stereo or take your music listening hands-free, we've got something for you.
