Using the 'Keyboard' plug in System Settings it's possible to do this.

System Settings --> Keyboard --> Shortcuts --> Media gives options to change the shortcuts for playing/pausing and other media functions.

Just click the shortcut you want to change and press the desired key-combination.

  • @Ravan, assigned combination for Pause for instance doesn't work, but for Volume UP/Down and Previous/Next track it works though.

I don't know why but sadly "Shift + <" combination doesn't work, "Shift + >" does though. Actually "Ctrl + ," and "Ctrl + ." will fit perfectly for chosing previous and next track.
