Cost Effective iPhone Ear Phones
« on: November 25, 2013, 05:26:24 PM »
I'm growing weary of paying $30 for the really good iphone ear phones with the mic.

The problem is I've bought the cheap ones and they just don't work as well.

Does anyone have any good suggestions?  You can buy something that looks exactly the same on amazon, but the reviews are horrible, as you'd expect since you can get 3 packs for < $4.

Does everyone just but the $30 apple version?

How often do you buy these?

I have ears that don't play well with the apple earbuds, but haven't found good substitutes.  But, after following the above link, these look promising.  Note how the cable is bendable into a custom earhook. Just what I need for work.  Mic too.
