    My iPod Touch 3rd Generation 32 GB, came with these awesome Apple headphones that has the Mic and Controls on them. Just about a few weeks ago the right ear bud went out, but the mic/controls still
    work. I looked around, turns out if i buy another pair it would be about $30, since it is the same one, I kinda don't want to buy it. Now my question is there any alternatives for these Headphones, that has Mic and Controls. I know that the Dr.Dre's have them but they are way to expensive. Sorry to have such a long post, I like to explain my story.

    Skullcandy FMJ has the clicker for music control. They are 30$ on amazon.

    I will put that in consideration, when i end up actually buying something. The only thing that the Skullcandy FMJ lacks is the volume controls.

    Yeah that is really the only limitation. The sound quality is really good though. A lot better than Apple headphones.

    The Apple Headphones have them (obviously):

    They are on the expensive side. Much more comfortable, and I find the sound quality to be fine (for me; granted I'm no audiophile).

    There are some considerably nice headphones with remote + volume controls + mic...

    But of course, these are kinda more expensive than $30... (Unless you want the $40 Sony in-ear ones... which aren't that bad.)
