Replacing my iPhone headset
New Picture 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!
