I own a pair of Etymotic ER-4Ps as my regular everyday headphones and I love love love them. When I listen to music on my iPhone, I hate having to pull out my earphones to answer the phone. I've been reading about these earphones for a while. A favorite of many reviewers and sites like iLounge and CNET, the sound is supposed to be excellent, offering great sound wuality and noise isolation. Since they are based on my favorite ER-4Ps but with an added microphone that hangs right next to your mouth, I figured these would be the perfect solution. There is a little button on the microphone. It does a couple of different things. When you're listening to music... 1 click = music pauses 2 clicks = skip to next track 3 clicks = go back to previous track Nice and easy. I love how the earphones mute the music, pausing automatically, for an incoming call, picking up again when the call ends. Plus, who doesn't love that ruby color? (These also come in black if you don't love the ruby color!) These earphones are also compatible with other phone brands and other MP3 players.
Holy crapskates these are awesome! I love, love, LOVE in-ear earphones. Most earphones fall right out of my ear, thanks in large part to my unusually-prominent fossa triangularis. [ http://tr.im/fossa_triangularis ]. This company not only has kickass sound quality, but durable, full-featured earphones that rest where I need them to rest. The price on the manufacturer's website seems a bit daunting, admittedly, but my guess is that these marvels of modern technology can be found elsewhere for a bit of a bargain. ;)
