Is there a way to know if a particular wired headset (Sony Ericsson or not) with media controls (single or multiple buttons) will work (or not) with my Xperia Ray ? (before buying and trying it, I mean !)
Ideally, I'm looking for a wired headset adapter with media controls (play/pause, previous/next track, volume... but I suppose a single button could be enough thanks to such android apps), and if possible with a microphone, that allows me to plug and use any headphones.
Would something like this work on my Xperia Ray ?
Is there such a Sony Ericsson device ?...

Just received the SE HPM-75/J headset I recently ordered on eBay.
It works perfectly with my Xperia Ray !
(with the delivered SE headphones and also with my old ones)
With the JAYS android app, I can control almost anything I want:
(they should just add quadruple and quintiple clicks, in order to control even more fonctions, and it would be perfect !)

There really isn't, unfortunately.
It is either (as you said) try-before-you-buy, or a bluetooth device.
We don't have a wired headset that meets your needs.

Thanks for your answer.
So it means that some headset adapters will/could work ?
Then if anybody has a successful experience with such a device working on an Xperia, please let me know !
By the way, just a technical question: as there's usually no additional contact on the jack, how do headset buttons work ?...

I hope you get some replies from other users!
As for your other question... I don't know. It must use what is already there

I have purchased SE MW600 Bluetooth earphones and they sounds excellent. However, track and album id doesn't show on headset receiver for some reason.
I also received a set of SE ribbon headphones with the phone anyway, which I've been told are really good (controls on the cord) although i've not used them yet.
any other makes/ types, i don't know...
hope this hepls..

What about this SE one ?
Seems it would work (the 'adapter' part), as I guess the single button should control everything thanks to an adequate app (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.kober.headsetbutton&hl=fr).
Too bad it's not sold separately (without the headphones) !
Also, here's another post from this forum with some interesting info about the compatibility issues (but still nothing specific about the "button" compatibility issues):

I'm wondering if a SE MH-500 or HPM-75J headset (also divided in 2 parts, so that you can use any headphones you want) would work with the Xperia Ray...

But this button will still be configurable through dedicated Android applications, won't it ?
