    My apple earbuds are getting worse by the day, so I'm looking to replace them with. Third party product. I really like the apple ones, but ALL of mine have died after 6 months.

    Does anyone know of something that has a mic/volume control, and has the rubber things on the end.

    I can't find anything with the mic on them. Any ideas? Probably want to spend less than $70. The less the better.

    Am I the only one who goes through the apple ones like crazy?

    The less the better? In earphones most of time when you pay less, you get less quality. And I'm guessing here but I don't think you'll find any good earphones that will last longer than you're apple ones, while paying less then $70.

    Take a listen to the Scosche IDR655m. :)

    Y-chain type
    Silicone inner earbuds
    Volume control and mic
    Good overall sound with more emphasis on bass
    Light weight nylon braided cord
    Not sure about its price in USD (I got them for about 80SGD)

    These are seriously under-rated. The overall build quality is great. Even better than some of the very expensive ones I've seen. The sound quality surpasses many other pricier IEMs out there.

    You won't be disappointed. :)

    I have had my Monstercable Turbines for almost a year now, but somehow the cable always starts to break after a year or so, no matter how expensive they are.

    So now I'm looking at shure's that have detachable cables. I hope that that will solve my problems.
    Anyone knows another brand that also has detachable cables?
