For past ~7 years i used Creative EP635 headphones. In that period I have managed lost or break few of them :)
Now I see that this model might finally get discontinued and I started to consider buying something else.
Here are things that I loved about ep635 and definately would like to see them in my new headphones:
* short cable - it was exactly almost the length of my torso :) (I'm a short guy) I could wear cellphone on my belt (or ipod shuffle few years ago) and there was never too much cable!
* a neck strap - I wear them in the morning under my shirt and forget about them until they are needed. Also I can just use one headphone, let other loose and they will not fall off
* good noise isolation - the middle size of 3 supplied earbuds fit me very well and in my opinion the isolation was very decent
* I'm no audiophile - the quality of sound used with ipod shuffle and later android cellphones seems fine to me.
The low price of this model also made it an expendable item of every day use - if it stopped working after a year or two i can buy another.
Recently since I use my headphones only with my android phone I decided that having a microphone and a 'take a call button' on the headphones i pretty comfortable.
So ideally I'm looking for headhones short cable, neck strap, good noise isolation, comparable audio quality, microphone and 'take a call button'.
So far I havent found a single model like that.
I started to consider leaving out the requirements of short cable and neck strap and perform 'recabling' or try to manually made a neck strap and adjust cable with some string.
Thx in advance for all comments and advices :)
