    now that fring is available for the ipod touch, i'm looking into getting headphones with a mic. of course there's the apple stereo earbuds w/ in line mic, but it's gotten lukewarm reviews at best.

    i could potentially just get a 2.5 to 3.5mm adapter for my plantronics headset and use that, but i'd probably only use that at home.

    i personally prefer the earbuds (not the in ear headphones - they're just not comfortable for me), so I'm wondering whether people have suggestions for a decent set of earbuds w/ an in-line mic.

    i'm looking for something $30-50 range.

    How could the new Apple stereo headphones with mic get lukewarm reviews when they haven't been released yet? I say wait until they are released before you jump to conclusions, the price for them is great at $29.00

    Sorry, my mistake. I was looking at the iphone stereo headsets, not the new ipod stereo headsets. Any word as to when they will be available?

    I'm using my headset that came with my Samsung Instinct the sound quality sucks so I only use them for Fring and I use my earbuds for music but when the apple in-ear headset comes out that will change.

    As far as I know, the iPod 3.5mm port is the same as the iPhone's. If you don't like apple's earbuds + mic, you can get one of those iphone jack -> 3.5mm adapters with a mic. Google "iphone 3.5mm adapter mic."
