Anyone get em in yet?
Unfortunately, yes, and I will probably be returning them. The Woot! page was quite misleading about compatability. In fact, the volume control will not work for most Androids running Jelly Bean, including the GS3. The long-click required to start the volume control, instead starts up the Google Now app, and there's no way to turn this off. I found the following in the Klipsch official forum, from Klipsch Support:
"After firmware update 4.0.3 Google over ridded [sic] the long press function for volume to Google Play. We are currently working on our App but at this time do not have a solution. Sorry we could not be of more assistance and we will take care of this issue as soon as possible. Please let me know if you have any other questions."
It's not quite correct. It's Google Now (aka Google Search) that launches, not Google Play. And "over ridded" should be "overrode".
I'm very disappointed that Woot! didn't include this information. I'm considering whether or not to return them.
