    I'm searching for in ear lightning headphones with microphone. The market at the moment is kinda limited. I'm sharing some headphones which I have found if anyone is interested and I would love to see some more recommendations.

    Jbl sport headphones

    These seem really nice (expected October 2016)

    No shipping date for those I think and only one color (red)

    And that's about it (not including some Chinese cheap headphones from amazon as they don't ship to Europe)

    Those look nice, hopefully RHA will come out with lightning in-ears soon.

    They didn't announced anything at IFA this year so I'm not very optimistic

    As an update, libratone started the preorder for their lightning headphones. They have an offer for their first 150 customers as well.

    3 months later and not much has changed in this space.

    What really troubles me is all the ones that are available have the remote down in the middle rather than the traditional up by the ear. This is probably because they're putting the DAC in the remote, making it larger and requiring the remote to be before the split.

    fwiw, tried the libratone ones. Comfortable to wear, ANC is decent (not bose level but good for city life), sound was pretty good but ended up returning them in favor of wireless. Once you ditch wires, its hard to use any sort of cable.
