recommendations please for phone/buds with built in mic

Post by idracca » Sat Feb 13, 2010 10:04 am

I read so much about various kinds/quality/costs, ability to work/not with Voice Band etc. I'd like not to play trial and error. Anyone have any good suggestions in any price range? Am using a first generation iTouch. Thanks.

Unfortunately, Voice Band will not work at all with a first generation iPod Touch. This is simply because it doesn't have a 4-pin headphone jack (4 pins are required to support headsets with microphones).

I don't like the Apple headphones that come with the iPod. They fit too loose and when I try to get more bass they seem to scrape my ear which doesn't feel good. I found a pair by Klipsch "Image S4i with 3-button apple control". The rubber earpiece is oval instead of round which fits much better. Good sound quality without distortion, I like to listen load. They have a pretty good flat sound that doesn't have boomy bass which after awhile gets tiresome.
They're not cheap, I paid $100 for them @ amazon.com but I feel it's well worth it.
Peace,
PT
