Headphones with controls
hi. i was needing some suggestions about headphones in-ear...(over ear as last resort), that had the controls attached (i.e. play, next and volume.) the only ones i see are only compatible for iPods. I have a cowon.
i wanted the wired headphones not blue-tooth.
i'm not to sure which one will work because some say made for iPod and others say -compatible with mp3 players such as iPods (Which i take as the same thing.
I was trying to stay under 100 dollars.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
I understand what you're asking for, but as far as I know it does not exist. The problem is that there is no universal standard for wired controls. Volume controls are no problem, but play and next... I think you will only find those on a Bluetooth set of headphones, where a standard exists, or of course on an Apple, which apparently has a wired standard. The Klipsch that Zingo mentioned says it works "on certain Apple products."

For example, my old Toshiba Gigabeat F40 has a controller that plugs into the headphone jack, then the headphones plug into the controller. But I doubt that controller would work with your Cowon or any other player. I could be wrong, of course, as I've never tried it.
However, a quick eBay search for "Cowon remote" turns up this result:
Along with several results for Cowon EM1 earphones with built-in mic and remote. So maybe one of these items will work for you.
