I was one of those people that thought pay $100 for a pair of headphones was crazy. I went to the Apple store and I was ready to buy some cheapy chappy Sony headphones for $60. I asked the Apple guy if the came with the mic and fortunatly they did'nt. Because he told me that if I an willing to pay $60 for regular headphones I might as well add moee and get the Vmoda, so I did. I couldn't be happier. Just a word of advice for the people that were like me and don't really want to pay $100 for headphones, save your money and get them. Because you will not regret it!
