Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Button

Button:
"The button really sucks - there's no clear click, and it doesn't spring back, so when I'm trying to do a multi-click command, it sometimes registers only one of the clicks, which is frustrating."
_
"I then bought a fourth pair of ifrogz, a $20 upgrade version with a microphone and click button with 6mm drivers, and decidedly did not enjoy the sound from those."
_
"The mic was great, it had a button to pick up or hang off, however it seems to have broken after 2 months use, mic does work just the button that sucks."
_
"Mic works very wellButton typically works well(pauses or skips tracks for one or two clicks)wire stays untangledstyleCons:button sometimes unresponsive or interprets two clicks as me holding it downwire carries sound way too much."
_
"It would be nice if it had buttons to control the volume on the cord."
_
"Well placed mic and button."
_
"The bass in these is awesome..better than beats or the iphone5's microphone and button works great!"
_
"The microphone works well, and I like that there is a button for handling phone calls as well as music playback."
_
"They're very durable, they look nice, and they have a play pause button."

_
"good sound quality, but you get this big annoying noise if the cord rubs against your clothes or anything."
_
"Nice long cable."
_
"They do have a decent plug on the end of their cord, and the sound is not half bad, but that's about it."
_
"I listen to music and watch videos while lying in bed and that has caused me to spend a lot of money on good headphones over the years with the cable strain on the earbuds."
_
"It would be nice if it had buttons to control the volume on the cord."
