    I only listen to podcasts so HiFi quality isn't that important.

    I tend to roll them in a ball in my pocket so they don't last long, so I don't want to spend a lot on them. Even when I spent more for ear buds, I tend to destroy them, so I'm resigned to cheap and disposable ones.

    I do like having a mic in case I want to make a hands free wired call.

    I don't like the kind that get inserted into the ear.
    I do like the ear bug style that comes with iphones (they just rest in your ear).
    I don't like having to use foam wraps or anything detachable because they always fall off.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    If you're not looking for "great" quality why not use the earbuds that came with the phone?

    Cheap and good usually aren't synonymous but these guys are getting good marks all around : For only $6.06 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Enhanced Bass Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earphones | EarPhones

    NVM just realized you want a mic but regardless scope out Monoprice's stuff. People are really liking their stuff and finding it sounds really good for the money.

    I have them, lol! Very very good headsets for the price! Not too boomy but very crisp and clear. The housing is a tad big so they can be tricky to get a good fit in your ear. I bought these to compliment them....... Amazon.com: Sony EPEX10A/BLK Hybrid Replacement Earbuds (Black): Electronics. These are in-ear and don't have a mic though.

    Yeah you're right. I missed that in the original post. Of course, I can't personally comprehend why someone would want earbuds similar to iPhone buds. They're the worst I've ever heard. It amazes me how people can spend hundreds of dollars on a phone and then put $5 earbuds in their ears.

    Yup I do agree they sound a lot better than expected. I used this mod to make them fit better as well.
