    I am looking for some headphones with these qualities:

    Preferably ear bud but can deal with others
    Good for running
    They have a remote for volume control and switching songs
    40$ or less
    Mic is optional but preferred


    I also prefer not to get the apple ear buds with the mic and remote.

    You can get the Sony MDR-EX300's for $45 or so on Amazon.com...

    They are $80 originally... and AWESOME. I own a pair, and use them as my main headphones. They are excellent sounding, stylish, and comfortable. What more could you ask?

    They do not, however, have a remote or mic. That's the $99 model ($76 on Amazon...)

    And, headphone's can't switch songs. No headphone can. It's pointless to ask. AND, $40 headphone's won't last a long time... I own a pair of the EX300's and they have lasted well over the course of 8 months or so. They are amazing even still. What pair of $40 headphone's lasts at least 5 months?

    Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic
    The Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic have all the performance and comfort of the acclaimed Apple iPod Earphones plus convenient buttons that let you adjust volume, control music and video playback and even answer or end calls on your iPhone.

    That means play/pause. That's the center button. You can't skip tracks though unless you are on the iPod shuffle.

    How about you actually look at the site before you try to say anything else. Down below the top part is says and I quote.
    Like I said I own a pair... I have used these features!
