    I bought used V-Moda Crossfades and the headband is so misshapen that I don’t use them.

    [DIY] in-line cable remote recommendations?

    I've had cable failures on both my headphones and IEMs, and am thinking that beyond just fixing that, I'd like to try adding an inline cable remote — the kind of thing with three vol+/vol-/pause buttons that just fire a short/resistance across the mic line: I use both on the move a *lot*.
