    Can anyone recommend a cheap set of headphones or earbuds that work with iPads and iPhones?

    Thanks in advance.

    Motorola S305 headphones

    I didn't do an exhaustive search, but I found these and have been pretty satisfied with them. They connect painlessly, do both the iPod and iPhone functions, and were in the $32 range (used to be $99). They are fairly light and stay on my head even when I'm at the gym jogging or whatever. It is soooo nice not to have that damn cord anymore.

    My only two complaints:
    - My ears get a little sweaty with the foam pads if I run over a mile or two. This has caused me to want to consider some of the earbud-like options, although I am not sure they would fit as tightly.
    - The Play and Stop functions work, but the track forward/back functions do not. I have heard (in these forums I think) that this is an apple thing not a headset thing and that no 3rd party headsets work this way on Apple products. I can neither confirm nor refute that.

    Maybe not on Bluetooth headsets, but I have a pair of Beats Solos and the forward/back functions work just fine.
