    Hey guys, I'm looking for some recommendations earbuds that hook around the ear AND have mic/volume control. I have a super old version of these Sony earbuds until the sound started going out in one ear. At the same time, I wish they had a mic/remote built in to use when I watch to change songs while exercising. Preferrably something that doesn't completely plug up the ears. Some earbuds fit so tightly that I can hear myself breathing in my head. Not a fun feeling when I'm exercising.

    I'm looking for something pretty durable, too. They don't have to be some "extreme outdoor sport alpha+ edition (waterproof up to 60m)" headphones, but definitely not something fragile. I've had my old Sonys for maybe 5-6 years, I've spent hours and hours in the gym wearing these earbuds (and lost 70 lbs!), and I've probably accidentally yanked them off dozens of times. Not too bad for earbuds I bought at Walgreens for $4. I hope to have some earbuds that last as long. Thanks for any help guys.

    Very cool! I'l definitely look into these. My ideal price is probably around $50. I'd also be interested in the types of earbuds that wrap around your ear (i.e., the cord goes over the top of the ear lobe and into your ear), but I don't want anything noise-cancelling/isolating. Thanks for your help!
