    Does anyone have a headset they love? I'm looking for a wired, stereo headset that can be used for phone as well as music. And preferably with some kind of headset controls - like volume and skip track?

    All I have is a ratty old iPhone headset. And the apple headset with controls wont work on my shift...

    I’m not an in-ear bud fan so I have HTC Stero Headset (Amazon for $8) and the Plantronics Backbeat 116, $20 from Best Buy ( Amazon has them too). Plantronics are cloth wrapped so they don’t tangle as much and the mic isn’t obnoxious. The response from play to pause on media and answer to hang up is good on both. Sound quality is solid for phone and media use. I use them daily for at least 2-4 hours. Husband tried to steal mine on several occasions so I just picked up another pair for him. Works good on his LG. The Plantronics ones don’t skip through tracks like the HTC ones I picked up. For a higher price point, Klipsch Image series are good but those are in-ear.
    Unfortunately, the shelf life of headphones in my custody is cut in half so I keep to the inexpensive and that makes the Government Funding department (aka husband) content. lol

    Beats by Dr. Dre with the built in mic. Those are my dream headphones...

    So guess what everyone.... I GOT BEATS WITH IN MIC ACTION!!!! WOOP WOOP

    the fiance bought them for me for valentines day, they are the Diddy Beats with mic and volume control built in. Best headphones ever! sound amazing, easy to use with my phone, and well worth the case even though i didn't buy them. $150 plus $20 for a 2 year warranty thru best buy which covers any damage done that means if i cut them with scissors they replace them. well worth it!!!
