no val mentioned a while back that their was a copyright issues with the 3 button and apple
vmoda will no longer be distributing 3 button cables, mines (3 button) just shorted out not too long ago, its still under warranty, vmoda shipped it out a little while ago. I dunno if the replacement is a 1 button to 3 button
so the only way to get it now is to buy either:
an old vmoda headphone on amazon etc (the lps, the m80s, etc)
buy it off someone that bought way back
otherwise its only a universal 1 button from now on
sad but true =( oh wellz imo apple tanking nowadays anyway (i'm an iphone 3gs user! YEA still hasn't broke, yeaa its either durable or i take care of it ) and samsung is ruling ( everywhere i see on campus are s3s,notes, s4s or some other android) theres still iphones left but they are no where near as popular as they once were
It wouldn't be a copyright issue as there are dozens of headphones out there with the 3-button remote. It is more of a licensing issue where Val likely decided the fee Apple was demanding would make the final cost of production prohibitive.
