    I'm looking for a good/great wired headset, mostly for talking on phone, not so much listening to music.

    I got a package with VZW that had the PureGear stereo headsets, they have an inline mic but even though music is great through them, the sound quality on the other end of phone conversations leaves a lot to be desired. More than once I've had people complain and have to unplug them and hold phone to ear...

    I tried the Plantronics MX200 - the one with the rubber piece that goes under your ear... took it back, people complained more with it - they could always hear themselves echo back...

    So, back to square one...

    Really? You've had complaints about the sound quality on the PureBeats? I think they're awesome.

    The music is great, best i've heard. It's the phone call portion...

    And it says the button on the in line mic is answer/end/play/pause - I can't get it to pause and play when listening to music... Can you?

    Ok, does your button work to pause/play when you are listening to music?

    We must have a different one because mine doesn't have a volume feature on the mic.

    Just like the picture in the link shows, the mic has 3 buttons...volume up, play/pause, volume down.

    Now these are pure "gear" not pure beats. These are $49.99 separate from the bundle.

    Ok, what we have here is a failure to communicate. I don't have Beats... my headphones are Etymotic HF3s...

    I can. Maybe there's something wrong with yours. My button pauses/stops and forwards to the next song with a double click, just like it's supposed to.

    As a matter of fact, I used my Puregear to record an episode of Convertcast a few weeks back prior to buying a real microphone.

    (The only thing I didn't like about the was the funky little octagonal case they came with.)
