Indeed. Your Apple release schedule insights and predictions will not have any impact one way or the other on my merriment. I guess your Gift Card idea is an option but I don't generally like gift cards - receiving or giving. Gift cards don't satisfy my need for instant gratification.

Well, there go the headphones off my Christmas wishlist - what a disappointment... I really wanted the volume control on the headphones...

As Apple states in its iPhone Safety Guide:

Driving and Riding Safely
Use of iPhone alone or with headphones (even if used only in one ear) while driving
a vehicle or riding a bicycle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas.


Certainly it would seem prudent for Apple not to even suggest that the new headsets be intended for use in the iPhone. In particular, the in-ear construction totally blocks external sounds, unlike the current ear phones. The liabilities could be onerous.

Obviously, one could claim that they would never drive with using the headphones in both ears. However, just walking out of your home with them on, you put yourself in jeopardy if you are deemed liable for causing an accident while wearing headsets.

Sounds scary doesn't it. However, even the "USA Track & Field", the national governing body for running, has banned the use of headphones and portable audio players like iPods at its official races, "basically (because of) an insurance issue.

Well honestly, this is a product not even made for the iPhone.
It's made for the iPod touch and the Nano.
Apple says it does not support the iPhone with this product.
What is the big surprise?
It will turn the touch into a Skype phone.
That is the big news.

Good for you. Too bad they won't work in your iPhone. Since they won't work in your iPhone I wonder where you'll plug them in? Don't answer that.
You're the one whining that they won't work in your iPhone and are pining that they should- and what do you call that?
Complaining about your constant whining is something I do not back away from.
I am not pessimistic - but you are delusional. Apple did not make these headphones for the iPhone- so sorry you can't comprehend that reality.

Thank you- try explaining that to solipsism.

Neither do I. I recently found a bunch of gift cards I haev never used for Apple, Old Navy and Banana Republic. I have no interest in putting them in my card/money clip or even verifying the amount.

Which post would that be? The one where I stated that the iPhone probably wasn't designed with the HW capabilities for the volume controls or the one the one where I stated that it will have in a future iPhone update? For someone that spends his days searching for something to complain about you'd think that you could tell a actual complaint, but i guess a liar is a liar.

PS: Now I remember why I blocked you.

they sure don't make them easy to find in the online Apple store. unbelievably hidden.

the deal breaker for me on these headphones is that they are one huge cable. I prefer the Sony design, where it is a shorter cable with an included extension. that makes it more versatile and usable with other devices such as an iPod shuffle clipped to a hat.

The real issue here is timing, for both the in-ear and standard earphones with controls.
I put off buying an iTouch, waiting for the new style. The prices for Black Friday were too good to pass up, and then Apple offered free shipping for orders placed on Cyber Monday. The release followed the next day!
Not only do I now have them on my Christmas list, I'll have to pay shipping to Apple or drive to Indianapolis to pick up a pair of 30-dollar earphones. No savings there.
Bah-humbug.

There is no logical reason why in-ear earphones should need multiple drivers. I would go so far as to say they ought to sound worse, given the lack of room for components to form a decent crossover.

Where did I ever mention that you were complaining??? You just whine and pine for these earphones to work in your iPhone and they won't- so you get mad- too bad.
Your loss.

It's not cool.

And what is it that you offer? I've been on thread discussing the headphones ( do they work with the shuffle? why the delay? , etc ,etc.) not whining about the lack of support for the iPhone -that is all.
Again -what have you offered????
Offer something or don't post.

What bugs me is the fact that I cannot use in ear headphones and head sets that are decent quality for listening are $200-300.00. What ever happened to decent external headsets that are cheaper that would actually work on the iPod?

I have a tube in my left eardrum and cannot have anything that totally blocks airflow into the ear channel, So I put one ear bud in but the other has to remain outside the ear. this is a total waste for me and it seems that Apple could, or would make something that would work outside the ear.

This problem is also the same for children that tubes in their ears. There should be nothing that blocks the ear channel until the tubes came out. My problem is the fact that the tube in my left ear tube is permanent so I am stuck using my home stereo or Car stereo.

I figured they'd sound good for $79. I'm not going to get an iPhone until the next refresh and likely that model will have full support.

I love in-ear headphones. I'll likely never spend a lot of money on over the ears.

FYI most non-apple devices use "mic" and "ground" swapped order.
