Best under $40 over the ear Earbuds w/ Microphone?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Can I get a recommendation for over the ear buds. I think I would feel uncomfortable getting in ear buds, I'm very particular about jamming stuff in my ear.

For a phone? If you're just looking for an earbud, the Apple Earpods are actually really good.

Darn, I ordered the Meelectronics M6P last week. I will add these to my wishlist should the M6p die prematurely. I'm guessing these don't have a microphone...that would have been a big plus

The M6's are good for the price. While the Koss KSC75 is an amazing value for the price, it is not an earbud, they are clip ons. They leak a lot of sound so if private listening is your thing, the KSC75 isn't for you.

I've not been able to find a lot of earbuds with mics that work with Android.

I know the Apple ones don't (at least they don't on my phone), but that's also due to their plug structure (TRP on Android vs TRRP on iPhone) I'm guessing.

The Klipsch Image S4a are one of the only ones I know of that are built for Android (other than the ones that come with some phones, like HTC phones), but they're double your price range.

Guessing this is directed at the OP, but on the off chance...

I have a Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (SGH-i727). The LTE variant of the T989.

Off the top of my head, Etymotic mc2 and hf2 too, but those are likewise well over budget, not to mention really really deep-insertion.

As for something with a microphone that doesn't go in the ear canal, I'm stumped.
