And when you have an iPhone you definitely want that microphone option. Trouble is they are usually at least $70.00 USD or more to get any kind of quality. The ifrogz EarPollution Luxe earbuds are surprisingly cheap at $25.00 USD, include the mic, come in several colors, and have good sound according to this review from MacObserver. The mic aspect wasn't quite as good, but if you are looking for some cheap earbuds that have passable mic performance, you might want to check out the review.</p>

Don't most of the higher priced ones also support the pause/play, or volume feature on the in-line hump? I understand the technology for that has to be licensed. Nothing here seems to imply this has anything other than the mic.
