even though they say supported with ipod touch 2nd Gen - I bought for my 3rd gen device but it does state no voice control capability.

bought these In-store too! but found that online same price.
#2
Excellent price. I paid around £20 for these from Argos some months ago. They worked perfectly with my ipod touch and also with my iphone. Brilliant for using with Skype.

:thumbsup:
#3
Look Good to me
#4
+£3 delivery for those of us nowhere near a store
#5
That sounded rather negative.

Heat added, order placed, thanks OP!
#6
These can get so dirty!!

I wish they did them in black.
#7
Not supported by normal iPhone 3G?
#8
Nope - I can guarantee the volume control doesn't work with an iPhone 3G - although the microphone does.

I had a 32gb Ipod Touch briefly, and it's well handy having the volume control on the earphones.
#9
Good price, but that doesn't change that they're a terrible set of 'phones.
#10
Can confirm they work with iPhone 3gs and they will do voice over on the shuffle. In my opinion they sound pretty good but I can not get one of them to stay in my ear so have had to get some in ear ones.
#11
its extremely cheap on ebay.. the genuine ones!!
#12
why on earth would you buy these for £13.55 when you can get CX300's even though they dont have the inline mic. Im sure you can get a cheap chinese adaptor for your phone from ebay with a mic built in.
#13
Grrr i've spent the last 4 days looking at different earphones for my Iphone 3G - just can't decide! such a difference in price and every single pair has negative & positive reviews :(

Well let me tell you. It took me to buy CX300's to find out how bloody irritating and annoying these in-ear buds are. Also all I can hear in quiet parts is my own breathing. A personal choice of course and they aren't for me.
#15
These Apple headphones are awful sound quality, awful fit and break if you do so much as cough vigorously.

The only thing going for them is the remote and mic, but Apple are total b**tards for placing so many restrictions on third party manufacturers, which means you'll be hard pressed to find anything under £50 which is compatible in the same way.

I've forgone the mic and just use some Sennheisers.

Anyone know a good headphones / microphone combination for use with an iTouch as Apple in their infinite wisdom have made Bluetooth unusable
#17
What is the problem here..? I have a lovely Sony pair for music and will swap to this when I am phoning someone on Skype or Nimbuzz.

Agreed, I'm as big an Apple fan as they come, but their earphones are rubbish. I've lost count of the amount I've had through the years that have quickly degraded sound-quality wise, before physically falling to bits.
#26
Come on op, at least include the £3 delivery charge!
#27
Would the mic and volume control work if I connected these to my Nokia 5800?

I'm currently using standard iPod earphones with my phone and they fit my ears perfectly.

Can't stand the in-ear type ones.
#28
These also enable you to use Shazam with the iPod Touch.

"My bad" - that doesn't make any sense at all!
#30
the headphones aren't bad but they keep on falling!! used to have the original apple in ear earphone and they were really good but not as comfortable as the cx300 but they sound much better than the cx300..
#31
I'm currently testing out some Klipsch X1's (£17.99 on Amazon) First impressions seem good but still burning them in.

I must admit I personally like the bass on these Apple earphones but for love nor money will the left one stay in my ear. Put some black foam stuff on them (from an old pair) which helped but not an ideal solution!

I think that means it's not a good price.

The quality really isn't very good.

Lol foolish.

They can be collected in store and if you don't live near a store then add delivery. Simples.

P.S OP you forgot to add petrol/transport costs :whistling:
#35
What a bummer says out of stock now. Was hoping to buy a pair on Wednesday when i get paid.
#36
Try instore if you have one near, same price.
#37
Picked up a pair this afternoon from John Lewis in Edinburgh, where there is plenty of stock.

The ticketed price is £20-something, but scans as £13.55 at the checkout. Employee reckoned the reduction was due to a competitor price match.

Although the rear of the packaging states these are only compatible with the iPhone 3GS, they have limited operation with the iPhone 2G - they fit in the recessed headphone socket, the play/stop button works and also allows you to select the previous/next track. It appears the only issue is the in-line volume control.

These are also of much better build quality than the headphones that originally came with the phone and have much improved sound quality.

Have read about some issues with them breaking within a year... one year warranty with your John Lewis receipt.
#38
Thanks Rupes, mine are ordered and I was expecting them today, so hopefully tomorrow. Pleased to hear about the build quality/sound quality. I look forward to the improvement as I find the Apple earphones to be perfect for my ears from a comfort point of view, just need better quality.

Bought mine yesterday from JL Liverpool One. The girl I spoke to on the phone said they had 14 in stock but when i got there there was only one on display. Presumably the rest were in the back. The price ticket on the stand was showing the corect price of £13.55 though.

I will be taking them back though. I thought they would work with my Nokia 5800 phone but instead i get a terrible buzzing feedback sound through them. The phone seems to automatically recognise them as a TV outout rather than earphones.

I presumed they would work as I'd been using standard iPod earphones for a while (no mic or volume) and they've been working fine. My mate in work who's a bit techie said the fact the phone recognises them as a TV output is because the metal tip of the earphone jack has thin 3 white riings around it, as opposed to the 2 on the normal iPod earphones.

When I plug the normal iPod earphones into my phone it prompts the phone to give me a choice of either "Headphones, Lineout, TV-out cable or music stand" and displays a headphone icon when using them whereas with these I'm not prompted with a choice and the icon displayed is always the TV-out icon.
