    ) and the philips mic adapter, but I hate how the mic adapter increases the length of the cable( and I hate the little clip on the mic

    ), I end up with a super long cable ( the headphones cable wasnt even very long, its just that the philips adapter almost doubled the cable's length) whenever I have my mic plugged in

    , So I'm looking for some headphones that have a mic built in, I'd also prefer that they arn't in ear, and are cheap (10-30 USD)
    (sorry, i tried searching but pretty much everything came up with the philips adapter

    3rd party mic/earphones

    Just got a set of earphones with mic from Hong Kong for my 2nd gen.
    Mic does not work. Phones work for music.
    Nothing works for Truphone (why I wanted them)
    Tried "QuickVoice" to see if another app would record and it doesn't find a head set.
    Posted elsewhere on this site is a comment about a hardware lock with ver2.2

    I also got a video out cable that doesn't work either - some people have said apples cable has a chip in it.....).

    Opinion: go with Apple or take your Touch to the store and see if they work.

    Of course I used paypal and it was via ebay so I likely won't be out anything.

    Get the Phillips one for 10 bucks at Target. Works good. I got mine today. I can use Shazam and Palringo.

    Griffin TuneBuds mobile. I've read reviews online that said they have good sound, but they're a bit on the pricey side...

    I got them new on amazon for $22. For in ear earphones, that is not pricy. And they work really well.
