    Just wondering what to do...

    I'm a Canadian with a hacked/unlocked iPhone. Phone is flawless in operation minus the quiet ringer and speaker phone.

    Problem is I have 1 ear bud that crackles at mid volume level.

    Will Apple replace my headphones next time I am in the US? or should I not waste my time and just buy some real quality ones?

    Just buy a new pair, they probably wont replace that, they'll file it under "your fault" (it probably is, but im not accusing as it may not be.)

    If I had to guess, 95% chance they'd say yes. I've had about 7 headphone replacements due to blown speakers, ripped/torn rims. broken button (iPhone), etc.

    Yes, there is a good chance they'd replace your earbuds.

    I have had a pair replaced that came with a Nano… so yes they probably will replace it.

    However, best to get something of better quality in any case.

    Cool! Thanks for the feedback. I'm sure its worth a try. Now I just need to get to a US Apple store...

    Who else makes earphones with a mic and button with the same functionality as the OEM ones?

    Shure makes an adapter — it's on the Apple Store. Also some
    V-MODA VIBE Duo are available

    V-moda make a very nice replacement in-ear phones, not noise cancelling but very good external noise supression.

    Though they're pretty expensive, and i don't think the button on the mike is big enough. They are very very good.

    Cheers. M.
