  • Recommendation needed for iphone in-ear headphones w/ Mic.

    I'm looking for an in-ear headphone with Mic. for my iPhone. I have a $10 one I bought from Fry's but one of the buds is falling apart. Any recommendations for something below $50? I'm sure this one is nice, but it's $100 than I want to spend (since I don't primarily listen to music on the iPhone):

    Good Morning Nahn,

    I went through this a couple months ago. I tried Blose (very strange fit and sounded terrible), Apple IEM's (the dual armature model), and even tried the on-ear Beats by Dre.

    I ended up with Klipsch S4i.

    I was purchasing for sound quality primarily, but wanted the mic. The Apple's were a CLOSE second for me, only because of bass response. The Apple iem's are more comfortable, have better mids/highs, and have a less 'tangly' cord. Also for talking purposes, I like the mic on the Apple cord being up higher. The Klipsch's mic hangs too low, imo, down on your chest.

    At the time I bought mine I was doing a lot of work outside, and I listened to music all day and slightly preferred the sound on the S4's, but if I had to do it all over again I'd get the Apple iem's.

    They're $80 from Apple, but you can find them for less through amazon or ebay.

          Yep, those are the ones. They are a little light on bass compared to some, but are a great overall set especially considering price. Super comfortable.
