    Default Headphones with controls

    Looking for a pair of earbuds with both volume controls AND controls letting me skip the track forward or backward. Earbuds should be good for jogging, working out and whatnot. If anyone has any other alternatives, I'd appreciate them.

    TIA.

    If you're jail broken, get Activator from the Cydia store and you can set it to skip/repeat tracks when holding the up/down volume buttons

    I am JB'd and I'm aware of this, but the stock iPhone earbuds hurt my ears and don't stay in well. Looking for something more comfortable with good sound quality that wraps around the ear.

    I use a pair like these and LOVE them. The Apple earbuds don't stay in my ears, and their in-ear set was ~$75. These were $20-25.

    The closest I get to either of those is mowing the lawnóbut they're great for that. They've never fallen out.

    I had similar problems with apples headphones... They HURT my tiny ears!!! I tried about a bazillion different sets, including the sonys massie posted about. They sound good, however, I wasn't able to get a good fit because of my tiny ears!!! They have drivers that are right before the "in ear" part that prevents
    Me from getting them good into my canal...
    I honestly recommend the apple in ear ones... Brand new they are 80 bucks, but it's apple quality and it'll fot real right into your ears... Great for noise isolation and also they stay in very well during all activity

    I would suggest a blue tooth headset. The pair I bought has controls on the side of one of the ear pieces. They are really light weight which makes them great for working out and running. The sound quality is great too.

    That's what I'm looking at now.
