    Default Good Wired Earbuds with mic?

    Hello all!

    I am a newly converted iPhone user, coming over from Android.

    I am enjoying using Siri and I would like to be able to interact with it while using my wired earbuds. I currently use SkullCandy Ink'd headphones. I like the sound quality but do not have experience with any of their mic'd earbuds.

    Looking for some suggestions, most important would be sound quality as they will be mostly used for music but also want one with a good mic that is usable. Thank you!

    I've been rocking these for the past 7-8 of months... fantastic sound, IMHO

    I have the regular beats by dre, a little cheaper than the tours but still pricey, but honestly they are the best headphones I have ever had. The mic is really good and all the controls are handy.

    I use the skull candy smoken ear buds. The music sounds great with them and i have used siri and talked on the phone a few times using the mic. people have told me they hear no difference in using the mic on the earbuds compaired to the phone mic. And they are not expensive.

    I have Beats by Dre wireless, they are great. The best wireless headphones I've found to date. But if you're looking for wired headphones Beats by Dre Studio are great, a bit pricey but worth it.

    Jeez, you guys spend some serious loot on these things. I bought a pair of Palm Pre mic'd earbuds off Amazon for about $6. They sound good, and the people on the other end say it sounds clear. It beats the Jawbone I was using that sounded muffled and low.

    Sennheiser i300 or MM30i or the new amperiors look sweet and are based on the HD 25 legendary pro monitoring, engineering and dj headphone

    Pure quality and understated style from a German precision engineering headphone specialist.

    Anyone who buys into Sennheiser never goes back best sound by far. Beats are fashion statements with average quality, high return rates and huge overpricing!

    Those who know sound go Sennheiser
