Does anyone know if any 3 button earphones that wrap around the ear exist?

I have not had any luck finding any wired earphones that both have 3 buttons and wrap around the ear. I have never had any luck getting the normal earbud earphones to stay in my ear when running, so the around the ear feature is a must, but the best I have been able to find of those have only one button, making it hard to control both tracks and volume.

have you considered stereo bluetooth headsets?
i use the plantronics backbeat 903+ and it works perfectly.

I figure that the extra weight from the batteries along with the hassle of having to remember to charge the batteries would make bluetooth headphones more of a hassle than wired ones.

it's 34grams. if your ears can't handle 34grams combined, then you are waay too sensitive imo.
and it's got 7 hrs of continuous use. I'd say it's a minor inconvenience for not having to deal with wires pulling on your earphones all the time.

EDIT: For perspective.... 34 grams is something like 9 sugar cubes... and that's distributed across 2 ears. so... you're looking at 17 grams on each ears.
