I've been using the iPhone headphones only because they come with, and for the mic/sound control. Now they're starting to go and I'm looking for a pair of similar earphones with mic/control to replace, as I didn't see the point in spending $40 on a pair of bad earbuds. The thing is, I have trouble keeping them in my ears, so I was trying to find something that goes around it. The first choice was Powerbeats by Dre as they have the style I need with a control&mic pod, but I understand the marketing hype. Also, reading reviews from various places, another issue with them were DOA's and poor assembly (parts breaking, control coming loose, and whatnot). I'm not sound engineer, or audiophile, nor is my budget too big, but I was looking for a pair of similar earbuds thats sound at least decent since there is no need for me to purchase studio quality earphones (if.. those exist?). In a nutshell: A pair of earphones with this style - with a control / mic thats compatible with the iPhone 4. Quality at LEAST better than the Apple ones that are now crapping out on me (the balance of the music is shifting to the left side).
