Quality headset for 3gs

Posted:
in iPhone edited January 2014
Hey folks, I have been having a hard time finding any info regarding any aftermarket headsets(good quality) that work with all of the iPhone's features.



I can't put my finger on it now, but I remember reading that there was a little noticed change between the functionality of the headsets on the 3g & 3gs.



What I want are good headphones that can also answer phone calls, and do all the clickety things the apple headsets do(including now the hold for voice control feature).



Thanks in advance for all of your input.



::Edit:: - To clarify, I am asking about earphones/earbuds. (Not bluetooth) Something similar to this: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MA...mco=NzAzMDg3NA

    I use a Plantronics Voyager 855 with my 3G the call answer button works fine and the stereo now works.



    I'll pair it up to a 3GS and see if I can skip tracks like I used to with my Motorola V3XX

    With this headset I could pause and resume playback but couldn't find a way to skip tracks.

    Woops! I should clarify,



    I don't mean a bluetooth headset, I mean a set of earphones/earbuds with the features I mentioned. I'll edit the original post. Thanks for your reply.

    So after a little digging, I have found a bit more specifics about what I am asking.



    I am looking for a pair of earbuds that do the following:



    1) Support the volume control/remote functions that apples headset does.

    2) Also have the built in mic so that I can answer phone calls with them.

    3) Support the hold for voice command feature of the new 3GS



    Any suggestions?



    Is my only option the $80 Apple headset?
