MEDIA CONTROLLER

For Android Headphones

For anyone interested in creating their own adapter, the files for the PCB, enclosure, bootloader and firmware are now freely available for download at Hackaday.io

The Thumpware Media Controller for Android headphones is an adapter to allow your inline headphone buttons to control the media playback and audio settings of your PC. 

Use your inline headphone buttons to Pause, Play or Skip your music and videos on your computer.  

Or, turn your PC’s volume up, down or mute it with your earphone’s inline buttons, just as you would on your Android phone or tablet.  

The adapter connects between your headphones and your PC requiring only an additional free USB port.

The audio signals continue to be sent via the normal headphone port while the media and audio control signals are sent via the USB port. 
When connected via USB the device registers as a HID (Human Interface Device) and is compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux.
