    Sorry if this is repost; searched and I couldn't find anything.

    Just bought a 4th gen / 64GB touch from Amazon. I'm looking for a set of earbuds (in ear w silicone sleeve) with a volume + skip track button on the cord that works with the new 4G touch. Don't want nor care about microphone.

    I listen to my ipod on long motorcycle rides, and with my classic I could just press the next track button through my jeans...used a $10 set of skullcandys sounded GREAT and blocked most of the road noise so I could actually hear the music. Obviously with the touch that won't work.

    Thank in advance! Can't wait for my new ipod...liked my classic well enough, but after playing with a buddies 3G touch I realized it was time to upgrade

    Thanks Luke...I would, but I really need the in-ear buds with the silicone shield. Otherwise the wind noise just overpowers the music :-/

    Isn't it pure dangerous listening to music while being on your motorcycle?

    I remember there being a Cydia app that allowed music controls through your jeans when it's on standby.

    This thread has just made my day! I've been fighting with remotes for my Touch for over a year, Belkin wireless just not cutting the mustard in cold weather. Brill. Thanks!!!

    I wonder if you can implement a mic on my Ultimate Ears Super fi 3's.

    I just set up the Activator settings to allow track skipping by holding the volume buttons on the iPod Touch. Works great.

    I got a pair of Sony headphones with volume/mic/"next track" button. Pretty nice. I think they were like 20 something dollars at a local Walgreens.

    The apple in-ear earbuds have silicon sleeves and work really well, I got mine for $60 but I think they are closer to $80 if you get them from apple.
