    Hello,

    I bought a few sennheiser mm50 ip back when I had my iphone 3g now with the 3gs i'm looking for something similar both price and quality but with volume up and down preferably. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I forget the model designation, but Shure came out with one that sounds quite good. I love their audio-only headphones. Very good sound but quite pricey as well.

    While Shure makes the Shure SE115i (or some variation to that) that is a solid iPhone ready earphone. I recommend the Shure MPA with any of the SE headphones, particularly the SE530 for the best sound.

    Is there something similar to the NuForce NE-7 or mm50ip but with volume up and down in the mic button?

    they have mic, good reviews.. but unfortunately no button up and down.. but it'll do I guess..

    I recommend the Bose® mobile in-ear headset. I own a pair and they are AMAZING. True Bose quality and a great microphone with the push button like the original iPhone headphones. If you like amazing sound, this is for you.

    Nuforce NE-7Ms have better sound quality of the Boses
    Bose is a earbud w/ extra long tip
    Nuforce is an actual In Ear so it provides superior sound isolation

    I am really lost what the difference is, the Bose is an in-ear design?

    While I may not be the largest fan (or the furthest thing from it) of the Bose In-Ears, it's still an IEM, not an earbud.

    The only non-Apple in-ear headset that supports volume control on the 3GS, that I am aware of anyway, is the Klipsch IMAGE S4i.

    I asked/mentioned this on the other Mic/iPhone thread, but I've now tried two different models (V-Moda Vibe II and the Klipsch s4i) and I was surprised that I could not hear my own voice when talking through the mic, which you can on the Apple headphones...very awkward not to be able to hear your own voice when talking.

    Is this common with the other headphones on the market? Is this a problem for anyone else? Any recommendation of mid-high level headphones where this isn't an issue?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    It's pretty common to hear your own voice and it's annoying.

    What you can do is use only one ear when talking though the mic. With that said I noticed the effect more when I was using sennheiser mm50 so it could vary slightly. I notice it less with the Nuforce 7 but maybe that's because I became used to it.
