    Hi guys
    Made the move from the 3GS to the 4 a few weeks ago, and discovered that my SkullCandy FMJ with remote had broken functionality with the iPhone 4, after reading their forums and having no joy, not even a reply, from SkullCandy themselves. I accepted this and started the search for a new pair. With it being near Christmas I decided to wait to the Jan sales for purchase.

    My budget is around £70, i can probably stretch to a little more, want something with a microphone, and three button system for iPod controls. In terms of music taste, I listen to pretty much any kind of music, and i do mean anything. Also don't like bass that is too overpowering.

    The two I have narrowed to so far are:

    Sennheiser MM 70i
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-MM-Headset-Remote-Control/dp/B003WV39B6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1293970392&sr=8-1

    or

    V-Moda Remix Remote Nero
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/V-MODA-RRMT---NERO-Remix-Remote/dp/B0037KLP72/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1293970405&sr=1-1

    I have narrowed to these, however i am open to other suggestions and all opinions and suggestions will be considered.

    Thanks in advance.

    I just bought the Etymotic HF3's and love them! They are above what you are wanting to spend but they are worth the money. The sound they produce is amazing and the bass is not over powering at all. Give them a look and maybe they will make your short list.

    Good luck!

    Was looking at the etys but keep reading lots about how deep they have to go in the ear and am not keen on that...

    I wouldn't buy Vmoda again ever after going through about 6 pair with my first few iphones. At 100 bucks a set, the damn things kept breaking every 6 to 9 months.
