    Really good headphones? If you want music quality, the first thing you need to do is dump the idea of using bluetooth.

    So are you drawn to the functionality of skipping tracks, etc or is sound quality more important? I don't recall my iPhone headphones having that functionality you are describing, but I never used them because they don't sound good at all.

    Check these out:
    Ultimate Ears | MetroFi 220vi Headset

    It doesn't look like they have inline music controls, but there is an inline mic. I've been using a pair of UE SuperFi 5's for a long time. They are the best I've ever heard!

    I saw some similar UE's at my local Best Buy, so look there, or for a good deal try Amazon.

    FWIW, I'd go with sound clarity over inline control functionality every time.

    I highly suggest you check out this forum out:
    Forums - Head-Fi.org Community

    We can all point you in a bunch of general directions, but it's all subjective. a) What type of headphone are you looking for? IEM, Earbuds, Cans, etc. and b) What are you looking to get from a set of phones? Do you want bass, treble, good soundstage, sound detail, warm sounding, insulation, etc.

    The general consensus is the Head-Direct RE0 ($79), Fischer Audio Eterna ($59), and Head-Direct RE2 ($39.99 with the E5 amp, alone they are really light on bass, but the amp kicks it up a ton) are the best bang for you buck (sub-$100). Here is a great list of reviews, ranging in price from sub $50 to $300.

    Multiple IEM Shootout v.3 - Head-Fi.org Community

    and the compressed list:
    In Ear Matters: The List

    And this thread pretty much sums up exactly what you are asking: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/499363/re0-or-anything-else

    EDIT: So the links don't want to work, and they add a stupid picture. First link goes to the smartbuds (click the picture that says "Listen Zagg Audio"), second goes to the giveaway, which you can find all the way in the lower right of the screen.

    I would highly recommend getting [​IMG]these buds. I got them a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. Great quality, never fall out, and you can pause, skip forward, skip back, and control volume with a slider. It even has a microphone so you can take calls with it, and the use that same button to answer and hang up.

    They are on the pricey side, but if you [​IMG]sign up for their iPad giveaway, which only takes a second, they will instantly send you a discount code, anywhere from 20-50 percent off.



    OK, to be honest, I've been using them with my iPod this whole time. I just tested them with my Evo. With the default music player, none of the controls work except the volume control. With Cubed, pause works, skip forward works, volume works, but skip back appears to just skip around for a few moments, and then pick a random song.

    With calls, it's an even sadder story. Ringtones will play through the headset, but you can't answer. But you can control volume and hang up. Maybe I'm pressing the wrong buttons (shoulda read the manual), but I've tried every combination of holding and clicking the button I could think of.

    So take from it what you please. I'll tell you one thing- they work great with my iPod!
