    hey guys.. my right head phone ear piece stopped working tonight. I had them in my pocket and guess I smashed it at some point in the night.

    I do like them, in ear, good quality, controls. but they're expensive. I know theyve been out for awhile, anybody know a good place to buy them cheaper than retail?


    Thanks,


    Josh

    If you're talking about the standard Apple set, they are ear buds and not in-ear. Apple also do a set of actual in-ear and these are double more costly than the standard set. Just figured that may help when trying to source a third party replacement. =]

    you should post in the iphone accessories forum (or look around the other thousand threads like it).
    Don't get any cheap-o's off amazon/ebay etc, cause they'll be just that.

    Both the Apple in-ear headphones and the junk ones bundled with devices can be exchanged for free using support.apple.com. All you need is an Apple mobile device (iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone) that is still under warranty and Apple will send you a brand new pair! If you don't return the old ones in the box they provide, they will bill your credit card for the retail value.

    I had mine replaced through the phone warranty. you can do it online and they will send them to your house.
