    Hello everyone!
    I'm looking for really good headphones with at least a mic for my android device. I would love it if the monster turbine was compatible with android, but alas, it's only for iphones. At the very least I would get the klipsch, but they are also only compatible with apple (I don't want to get the s4a, they're a year old and klipsch is already coming out with s5).

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    I use Skullcandy Mic'd (Ink'd w. a mic) and I love them.

    One button controls Answer/End, play, pause, next, back, no volume control though.

    You're asking for the "best" headphones with a mic?

    Get the Shure SE535s, and then get the mic headphone cables. It will set you back $400-500, but you're asking for the best :)

    hey, awesome suggestion! haha those ARE pretty pricy, but I'm looking at the se315's and the reviews on amazon are pretty reassuring. do you own any shure headphones? got anything to say about them?
    i've never heard of this brand before but they look pretty awesome, especially the fact that if the cable gets damaged i don't have to buy a new pair, i just get a new cable.
    thanks alot!

    I own both the earphones and the mic addon cable that I've linked to ;)

    They sound amazing, and Shure is a well known brand in the microphone and earphone space. The lower line models are quite good too, and I use the 215s for running.

    I bought it to listen to my iPod. It looks great. It can last a long time . The sound quality is good and you can play anything with it that has a jack, item as described. This headphone for iPhone 3G&3GS iPod Nano 4th Gen Touch 2nd & 3rd Gen Classic 120GB 3.5mm Jack MIPXMH01 is ideal. Very, very cheap, small and portable. I like it very much.

    I use a Samsung HS 3000 Bluetooth adapter that allows me to turn any headphones into a wireless headset. Gives you many more options because you're not limiting yourself to built in mics. Also has media transport buttons that work quite well under Android. I have 6 headsets ranging from Sennheiser to Pioneer to Shure, and they all sound great through this adapter.

    I grabbed a pair of Skullz with mic at TJ Maxx for 9.99.
    They sound great....and no distortion when fully cranked


    I know they aren't high end....but for the price, they are great for a spare

    Skullz are pretty solid. They aren't high end but my rooted devices with Beats installed make the skullz sound really good. I'm too cheap to shell out big bucks for earphones/headphones. The mic is good too and I'm pretty rough on them.

    i favor bose over any other brand when it comes to sound, can't vouch for these specifically, but bose has never steered me wrong.

    Sms by 50 are good. The street version is wired and the sync is wireless but also comes with a wire with in line mic.
    Great heat phone and can personally recommend (although I don't use the mic)

    HAving used some of the mid-lower end Shure's, I was very happy with my BOSE MIE2's... only a mic though, no controls, but worked fine with my androids + balckberry.

    +1 for Sennheiser. They're the same quality, if not higher quality, as Bose/Monster/Beats/SOUL without the price tag those brands bring.
