Stay away from headphones designed for "iphones" as the fwd and back buttons don't work with the Incr S (or most HTC's). I remember trying a few and maybe the play/stop only worked on a few. Also, I was told that maybe HTC did something differently with some of the more recent phones including the Incr S vs the old Desire, adding to headphone control compatibly issues... I ended up with some Klipsh ProMedia In-Ear http://www.klipsch.com/promedia-in-ear-headset
which are essentially the S4 but with a single button and mic. It will stop and start music and handle calls. If you get the "headset button" app you can then set double click, triple click, etc... I've got mine set to fast fwd on double click and rwd on triple click.
Sound-wise, I thought that they sounded the best in that price range. There are lot of good phones at various price points and it all depends on your personal taste (and don't forget comfort...). Best to find a shop that allows you to demo them.
edit: one niggle I have with the Klipsh Promedia is that the button/mic piece sits just around my shirt collar (when I wear a dress shirt) and if I turn my head, sometimes it gets caught and tugs on my right ear phone. They also come with lots of tips to get a right fit. But I use comply foam tips as I always find foam tips the most comfortable and secure for my ears, and I like the sound slightly better with the foam tips (bass seems less boomy).
