I have a specific question on headphones for the Epic, but I figured I'd make a general thread relating to them...
I want to get some in-ear earbuds like these because this type of earbud sounds great. But I also want an inline mic for answering calls, and maybe a Play/Pause button. For all of this, am I gonna have to go through the micro-usb port, or can this be done through the headphone jack? Anybody have any suggestions? (Edit: oh yeah, these look sick but there's so way in hell I wanna pay more than $20 or $30 for this)

Let me find a pair for about 30 bucks for you. I'm warning you though, for this price, you'll get crap for audio especially since you want something with an in-line mic.
Ok, first pair JBuds J3M Micro Atomic earphones. According to most reviews, sound is very good for the price range and this one comes with a mic. It's compatible with mobile phones as well (Duh!). However, you're going 10 bucks over your budget at 39.95.
Next pair, we have the Scosche. Comes with both play buttons and mic! Sound quality is incredible according to reviewers (although if I reviewed 'em, you'd have a different story), but build quality questionable. Also, this is an eBay/3rd party seller buy, or it'll be way out of your price range.
elago e5-25 bucks and great overall quality. Comes with mic too.
Finally, Klipsch Image s2m, your best shot. All your controls, 23.95, and what do you know? A review from an Android user! He said it works perfectly with his HTC Incredible.
All found on Amazon. Hope this helped you!

Great headphones make mp3s sound like crap though... you can actually tell how low def mp3 actually is.
J3Ms look really nice, but no music controls
Looked up Scosche's and this one has the music controls and all. Look sweet. Do we know if the music controls are only for iPods or if they work for Android phones, too?
But the Elagos and the Klipschs (try to pronounce that out loud) don't have music controls And those Klipschs look ridiculous, too.

I have had a couple of pairs of sennheiser, bose, and others an I highly recommend sticking with the epic phones. I am quite impressed and I consider myself very picky. The do have an inline mic. With the epic, it automatically switches to the built in mic if you plug in "normal" phones. I tried many and ended sticking with the originals. That's a first for pretty much any device I've ever owned.
