    I've been waiting awhile for the new headphones to come out... It's kind of annoying having it be impossible to change tracks on your Touch without having to take it out of your pocket, unlock it and go from there.

    Anyone know when the new headphones are coming out? Or is there a nice alternative to this out right now anyway?

    I use Griffin SmartTalk, 1, 2 or 3 presses for Play\Pause, Next or Previous and the mic works for Skype or MSN voice calls and recording apps.

    The regular iPhone earphones will work fine for what you want. I tried them on a buddy's touch g2 yesterday. They won't do it on a Touch g1 though.

    that's too longer. if Apple said 'october', it should be the end of october at least. I just wait for new in-earphone with expectation. I hope that it will be released this week.

    Just get one of these (if you have Target in your area as these are only sold in B&M stores):

    Phillips iPhone Headphone/Microphone Adapter

    The button also works: 1 press is Pause, 2 is Next Track, 3 is Replay Track, so it's quite useful (on the iPod touch 2nd generation, of course, I don't think that functionality works on the 1st generation, maybe I'll find out if I get one this week).
