hi,
I was just on the Apple site to buy replacement earphones, but the "ordinary" ones have been replaced by a version with a remote and mic.
when did this happen and how can I get the previous version?
cheers

Looks like it's eBay for you. Perhaps the refurb store? They may sell old unused stock there too.

Have you looked on Amazon?

I somewhat wonder if they stopped selling them suddenly after stock went real low after going out of production. As the iPod features that allow for the use of the mic are not "brand new."

Try going to your local Apple store and finding them.

Probably not, unless you can find them at a store.

No. Once Apple discontinues something, no more. Unless its computers or iPods that are refurbished.

They both sound the same and cost the same so its really no big deal.

Couldn't you just buy some good headphones instead for the same price (or less)?

The pisser is they're still standard issue for the current Touch which certainly could use the mic. and remote. F'n Apple.:rolleyes:
