So I have been struggling with the iPhone headset for a while. On the one hand, I love the little controller that sits on the headset wire. It controls volume, play/pause, skips tracks and can answer calls, and has the microphone built in. However, the earbuds are very uncomfortable and keep on falling out of my ears. I have to continuously jam it into my ear canals. Very uncomfortable. Then I saw this video and it inspired me to break apart the iPhone earbuds and replace them with more comfortable ones. I searched around and found a pair of AKG K324P in-ear buds for $20. Perfect. After some soldering, I can now use my iPhone headset!
