They retail for about $80, but can be found for less.

How do you like the Klipsch S4a now that you've had them? I didn't mind the stock ear tips, but after months of use they needed replacing. I purchased Comply Foam tips and they're a great upgrade; super comfortable, great noise isolation, and some cool colors.

Not bad at all if I had to complain It would be volume I'm used to loud but I'm fine it I know its bad to be loud and for this pair no need to be loud cuz this pair does a very good job of canceling out any background noise. You got a link for those buds. Thanks

Here's the link to the product page. I'd recommend buy the mixed size pack to see what works best for your ear canal size. I used all 3 sizes successfully, but like the medium size best.

I've seen this asked a lot & I think the solution is not just headphones.

Check out my review of the Nokia BH-214 (linked in my sig too):

No, it's a bluetooth adapter that uses headphones. ANY 3.5mm headphones. It works awesomely. I think they're coming out with an updated version too (read/heard it months ago, but didn't research). If they do, I'll gladly get one. This thing is awesome, plus I can use whatever headphones I want (in ear, over ear, etc. I use either my Sennheiser Over or Shure IEM).

EDIT:
This looks like the successor to the BH-214!

Like one of the commenters said: SHUT UP & TAKE MY MONEY! I don't think they realize how useful it is to use your own headphones (or the included ones) without ever having to access your phone.

I used it once as a remote (see my review for how wired/BT simultaneously means wired takes priority). I kept the BH-214 on me, but my phone was plugged into the stereo about 20' away. If a song came on I didn't care for, I hit next on the BH-214 & it would change. Worked ok as long as I was in range.

What I meant to say is Bluetooth is wireless technology but not like wifi and it transmits audio via Bluetooth to the phone. No price I'm not at home yet but I Google the price. If its cheap enough I would get . I would like to just buy the adapter and leave the earbuds alone

If you didn't use the headphones with it, it'd act like a BT Remote. You could change prev/next/play/pause/send/end calls/volume up/volume down. As for price, I just saw it for $74. Seems only one place is selling them in the US & that's Expansys.

But, why wouldn't you use the headphones?

In my case, I already had some NICE NICE Shure IEMs (In Ear Monitors, professional musician level) that sound great with it. Same with my Sennheiser HD640 & PC350.
