Are there actually any decent IEMs (earphones) with working controls for the N5?

Tip us?

I'm looking for good In-Ear-Monitors, $50-$100 quality which have a working microphone, action button and volume up/down. I can't find a single pair. This is highly strange. For some reason all the decent earphones are made for iDevices...

I thought the iPhone plugs had become the defacto standards

a-JAYS Five have natively-functional headset controls on Android. Volume Up/Down, center Play/Pause and all that. Just make sure to select the version designed for Android.

The only catches are that they're pretty spendy for earbuds, and I think they're still only available direct from JAYS. In Sweden.

why not Nexus headphones? they are better than most of the headphones on the market, and the price is WOW.

I recently bought Jlab Epic.They have got to be the best ear buds ever.They easily beat my iPod 5 earphones in terms of everything.Check them on amazon.Highly recommended.

I personally have these http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-Image-...ds=klipsch+s4a

(that's my review at the top). Not perfect since it's the single button style but it works fine.
