Looking for Earbuds with mic that can be used on a pc
 
Hello was just wondering if you guys had any suggestions on any good earbuds with a mic? Also an on/off button or switch for the mic would be preferred. I have looked at some but they all seem ok, just want to know what opinions other people have before I buy something like this.

Also for price point I would say around $200 or less. Thanks!

MY feelings on headsets are to stay away from the multi driver 7.1 sets and just go with a good 2.1 set and use software surround if you want it. Almost every headset out now has either a mic on/off switch, OR the mic turns off when you lift it up. Also, comfort is as important as anything, so if you have the opportunity to try on a few different sets make sure you do it.

After getting a pair of PC360s and hd558s I am a huge fan of Sennheiser and I see that NCIX has PC333D's on for 199 right now. Steelseries 7h are also very decent and are on for 130.

I probably named the title incorrectly but i meant the ear phones that just go in your ear, they dont go over your head.

Buy a decent 4 pin iPod headset, use an adaptor with it.

I can't give a suggestion really but I can tell you to avoid the Ultimate Ears mic cables available for their headphones. Very poorly constructed. Have had to buy two sets of cables in about a year.
