    I already fucked up 2 pairs of headsets. $30 a pair :frown: I do use them to work out and while I ride the motorcycle, so that might not help out too much. Are there any aftermarket iPhone headsets out there?

    You can, but you need to either trim them or get an adapter.

    Depends on the shape of the jack on your headphones, most will need to be trimmed or use an adaptor from what I hear.

    Yeah, there are several. I was in Fry's this past weekend and they had quite a few from which to choose. I'm sure you can look at modmyifone.com or similar to see what people are talking about.
