I am a newbie in this area and would need your recommendation for a good pair of earphones. I had a blackberry before and bought a blackberry earphones with controls ($80). I now have an iPhone 4 and unfortunately the controls on the earphones do not work (just the stop/play button but not the volume). This time around, if possible, I would like to buy a decent pair of earphones that is compatible with other devices, not just the iPhone, so I can still use it later on.
I've read through some reviews and threads and have read that the Klipsch s4i is a good choice. However, the threads/reviews were dated in mid-2009. Is this still a good choice at this time or are there better ones out now? I also saw the Shure 115m+ in the store today and also considering that. Another brand that keeps on popping up is the Etymotic.
I know the price of the above mentioned products ranges from $100-180 and may have significant quality differences. So maybe if someone could steer me to the right choice.
Thanks a bunch.
