    Hi, this is my first post here.. I own a 3rd gen ipod touch 32gig. I must say the bundled headphones are absolute garbage, i really want to change them with something that will sound decent. However i can't seem to find any headphones that will still allow me to use the voice control feature that i find so useful. If you guys know any headphone that can use voice control apart from apple's earbuds and IEMs please reply to my post. Thanks

    If the case may be that any headphone with mic will do, will i be able to activate voice control by the headphones button or i'll be required to use
    the ipod's home button?

    Edit: an adapter with remote would also work

    Any cheaper alternatives? Spending another 100 bucks roght now is a bit over my budget. I would prefer something in the 50$ range. Thanks

    I second this. I ordered these almost a month ago and I've gotta say, they are superb quality. Compared to my previous headphones (Sennheiser CX-400), they are incredible. No regrets buying them.

    One thing for sure: make sure you use the right rubber plugs. They give you a choice of 4 pairs for most, if not all, ears. Pick the one that fits you best and provides the most comfort and noise isolation.

    Hello..
    I registered here to ask this same question-
    I also have a 3rd gen Ipod touch 32gig.
    I really like what I see with the NuForce NE-7M,
    however, on the manufacturer's site it says
    "Works with iPhone 2G/3G, iPod Touch, BlackBerry Storm;
    Works with iPhone 3GS without volume control on mic button."
    I know it says "Ipod Touch", but since these have been out since 2008, I was wondering about how they work with the Touch 3rd gen.
    My Ipod touch has the volume control on the mic button-not sure how the older ones are.
    With the remote, will I still have volume control and the "click once to pause, twice to skip" type functionality? Does voice control work?
    Thanks all..
