Can anyone suggest a decent pair of earphones for the lumia 920? Needs to have volume controls and microphone and be able to answer phone calls. Can't decide whether I want in ear or on ear headphones but ideally I want to spend less than £50 if possible. I had an iPhone before and always liked their headphones but the mic and volume controls don't seem to be compatible with the 920. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Klipsch Reference S4 or Klipsch Image S4 would be best bets for in-ear type. If you're okay with no controls, undoubtedly jump to Klipsch bandwagon.
For on ear I don't have any specific choice which have the controls, but Sony MDR-XB400 offers best bang for buck, and comes with thumping bass response. (Though you may need to adjust your EQ is you're an audiophile.)
I've been using these both. I'm an audiophile (without much money to go for high end). I've done much research before buying these, so be sure that both are a steal. Go for it!

One simple solution that I've been using. Buy a nokia AD-54 adapter. It comes cheap, and provides all controls you need (play, pause, stop, next song, prev song, volume, lock controls, answer, etc)

Oh no, it won't use mics on your iPhone headphones. Actually I guess if you plug iPhone headphones is AD-54 that would be incompatible, because AD-54 is made for general purpose headphones (3-point 3.5mm plugs, while iPhone has 4-point one).
AD-54 has inbuilt microphone. So just use a normal earphone, it'll convert it to a decent headset!

Sennheiser OvertheEar Headphones with swapcable system Black HD439 - Best Buy
these over the ear headphones sound REALLY good. i played with them yesterday at best buy. i currently use AKG's. they are made by an austria company and regarded as high quality. in ear buds agitate my ear and they dont block out the outside noise so you dont get to hear the song the way it was meant to.

I use the stock Samsung headphones that came with my focus. They are really nice for stock headphones. They sound pretty good and are comfortable to wear. If they ever break, I will be lost looking for a decent replacement.

I don't know if you would consider Bluetooth headset or not but I use my LG 730 headset all the time. It has everything your looking for without wires. It provides great sound is way loud and has built in EQ settings. Works with all phone functions including voice commands. It like this headset was made from WP

I might just make the ump to the Nokia Purity headphones. They're 99$ but I only hear positives from them and they are for sure compatible with 920.
It seems like a lot for headphones but I've always been satisfied with Monster headphones so I'm just waiting to go back home to order them since I've out of town.

I was literally in line to purchase the SC Titans but then I realized it did not have volume controls so I have to settle for the Purity.
Maybe I'm wrong though and yours have the mic/playback controls but if not they simply aren't an option for me.

I would recommend trying the Sony MH1C's. Don't be fooled by the $20 price tag. The sound produced from these earphones is unbelievable and comparable to the $100 earphones you can find out there. It has an in-line mic, volume controls and works great with my 920. It has a flat j cord which you have to get used to but for the price you honestly can't go wrong.

I've gone with the in-Ear Headphones by Monster WH-920 as suggested by treble3 as I can get them for £30 off of ebay. Lets just hope the seller is reputable! Thanks for everyones inputs. Seems like quite a job trying to find headphones with volume controls for the 920 =(

Even though you've ordered I'll throw in my recommendation. :)
I have the Creative WP-450's. It does all controls/voice control of the phone. calls sound pretty good on them and music does as well.. They are a bit over your price but the WP-350's are a highly recommended as well and offer the same controls. :)
