Using headphones while on the go is something that nearly all of us do, and with iPhones being used as portable media centres, you don’t want to have to unplug your headphones to take a call. The quality of portable headphones has gone up so much that you don’t have to sacrifice sound quality for the option of an in line microphone – Here is my pick of the best iPhone compatible earphones availablein our store.
The Audiofly AF33M delivers superb sound at a strong consumer value, the entry-level AF33M is an excellent multi-use in-ear earphone and offers best in class for value-conscious consumers that want a superior sound experience. Audiofly have come up with their own in line microphone placement, so instead of the mic and control being together they have separated them for ease of use and better voice transmission. When it comes to value for money, nothing beats these!
The Sennheiser OCX658i Clip-On Sports Earphones are the perfect choice for those of you that want a well built, great sounding sports earphone and in line microphone to be used with your iPhone.

The earphones are also sweat and water resistant so they will be able to handle all you’ve got to throw at them!
