    What are good headphones with a Mic & control button available out there? I am thinking of the Apple in-ears, even the iPhone headphones that came with the iPhone itself have trouble staying in my ears (I have awkward ears or something).

    I just received today my Sennheiser MM50 iP Earbuds. They have less bass than I am used to, but otherwise are quite a good headphone, and seem to fit well. I really like the cord design: it goes behind your neck, so it keeps it out of the way.

    I like the z buds from zagg, if you want decent sound with conveinient features I would go with those.

    I recommend trying the Apple In-Ear earphones, they're much better than the square-box ones the replaced.

    If not, maybe a canal earphone? These are great. And they've really gone down in price - they were CA$250 when I got them a year and a half ago, and now you can get them for like 1/3rd of that price from Amazon. Unfortunately they don't have a mic, but they really stick in my ears.

    Maybe they have canal earphones with mics?

    V-Moda make some really nice kit, I have always found that the audio quality is superb from their earphones. They do a model with Mic for the iPhone too.

    I was really thinking about the Apple in ear headphones, I hope they actually fit.

    They probably will; they're designed in a way so that they actually don't fall out of your ears whenever you move a muscle.

    I didn't knew what to order. At first I was looking for the new Apple In-ear set. But I found it strange they release something which is not fully compatible with one of apple's main product... the iPhone.
    Then I also thought about the fact that apple isn't known for it's great earphones. Sennheiser scores better on the quality part. They are specialised in head/earphones.
    So, the result is that I ordered my Sennheiser MM50 ip. Tomorrow they are supposed to be dispatched, in a couple of days I can expect them. Let's see how they really are...
