I actually like the earbuds and I use them all the time to pause/play the iPod and to take calls. The "clicky thing" stopped working today. Do you think they are covered? Normally I wouldn't think the ear buds would be but since they integrated the button into them they are a much bigger part of the operation of the unit. Is it worth bringing up at an APple store? Thoughts?

Just bring it into a store, I doubt they would give you any trouble with a replacement earphone set

what are you guys talking bout clicky thing I can't find it
Are you serious? It is on the right earphone cord and has a little microphone hole in it. When you squeeze it it answers the phone or pauses the track and if you double click it , it skips the track.

Don't feel bad, for several days after I got the iPhone I never used the earbuds because I thought they were uncomfortable and ugly, I was just going to give them to my kids for spares. After reading these forums I learned there was a "clicky" thing and I now I use them all the time. Although they are still very uncomfortable for me there is nothing like being able to forward the music and take a call without touching the phone.
Can't wait for someone to make nice ones that will have this feature!

Rivet makes an affordable set of iPhone compatible headphones. V-Moda Vibe Duo headphones are a little more expensive, but they are iPhone compatible as well. I'm sure there are several more. Although I did not see any headphones here at the everything store, I am sure you can find others.

For those of you with issues having the iPhone headset fit your ears, I read in another thread to try and use a set of jabra mini gels....they fit on the headset great and a pack of 3 pair is 4 bucks. Worked for me, and it has a noise isolating effect.

Hope this helps others
