With microphone preferred.
Sound quality secondary to having tanglefree cord and lack of microphonics. Going to use for travel, gym, etc. Nothing worse than being woken awake by microphonics :)
Have anything for me?
Also even though sound quality is secondary, would still be helpful if you stated sound preferences/genres, as when you're within a certain budget (e.g. ~$100) most of the mic-capable stuff like the A161p or the HF2/3 can be worn over-ear and the cable is essentially microphonic-less (in this case you really get what you pay for - a rare occasion on H-F).
Also stating a budget would be helpful :P
The Westone epic cables on their IEM's are the best I have come across for non-tangle and non-microphonic. They only downside is: their IEM's isolate so much that bone conduction can be a problem if you walk around with them in. I use my Westone 3's when shopping for shoes to see how good a pair of shoes is for bone conduction.
^^ Are these the same X5 and DBA-02s that we're talking about here? As the cable noise, even when worn over-the-ears, behind the back, and cable cinch all the way up, was nigh unrelenting. An absolute nightmare whenever I came near velcro or zippers (but was not as severe as with the X5s in comparison). Even regular occlusion was above average on the DBA-02.
