All I need is a mic and one button. It can work as pause/play, answer/end call and (with Poweramp) long-press to skip to the next track. I don't care about volume control, and the only other requirement is that they're the in-ear ones.

I'd really like to get away with spending around $30 or less.

In fact, the stock Samsung headphones from my old Vibrant were great and were what I had been using, but something happened to the right side bud and it died.

Auvio makes a decent pair for about 20 bucks but after a little while they capped out on me but a lot of headphones do that to me lately

as far as I can tell the volume control (3 button earbuds) don't work well with Android

Head-fi.org will give you plenty of info (I'm a member over there).

Anyways, I recommend my current buds. These offer phenomenal sound for the money. Denon AH-C560R. If you want a trial run some best buy stores in the USA stock them you can try them and return 'em.

Although if you think the Klipsch S4 are expensive then you may not want these...great sound stage and very good bass. It provides me a fix when I'm not using my "home system".

I definitely do not want to spend more than $30 on headphones I'll only be using at work. I move around a lot and the cord sometimes gets snagged on things.

In any case, I was cleaning my desk and found my old Jabra BT3030 A2DP "tag", and it still works. I'll just use that with my current headphones (they're crap, but they were really cheap crap - $10). Thanks all. Oh, and apologies to sicmadek for jacking his thread!

I think you'd probably like Skullcandy inkd with mic. You can get them online for $15 - $25. They have the one button like you want and sound decent. Definitely not audiophile good but for the money and features they work pretty well. I upgraded to the Titans but I don't think the sound is much better. I wanna try some of the higher end stuff but I should wait for my 3 pairs of skullcandy buds to die first. :)

They're well worth the money if you care about audio quality. Of course, everybody has different priorities, but once I started enjoying music on good gear, I had no regrets. Definitely try before you buy though, especially if you haven't progressed beyond Skullcandies or similar. The difference may not be worth spending the extra cash on.
