Default Cheap earphones with mic and music control?

Looking for some affordable earphones with a mic and the 3 buttons for music control and answering calls. Is there one out there?

ha, that is really cheap, any alternatives, the remote control looks like the normal one, which isn't very good.

Any experience with this?

Its only a switch. Its either works or its doesn't. Quality is not such a big issue.

That's true, but if the OP wants music controls on there, then I'm presuming they're talking about the sound quality of the headphones.

I think the way to go is to get your favourite headphones (I use Koss PortaPro) and an adapter, though I had to use Headset Button Controller to get this ipod-friendly one to work properly.

It's around 2.50 delivered, has a clip, microphone, remote, and volume slider. All work with the above app.

$3.85 - 3.5mm Stereo Audio Adapter with Microphone for iPhone 2G/3G/3GS (80CM-Length) - Audio Accessories & Earphones

Pretty sturdy little thing and seems much better than the Belkin adapter I had that barely lasted a month!
