    I have to say, I'm loving these earpods that came with my dad's iPhone 5. Probably one of the only things I like about it. Since the Lumia 920 didn't come with earphones, I just borrowed my dad's since I'm unable to get the Nokia Purity In-Ear holiday offer. :| Is there any way to buy these type of earpods without the remote or do I have buy the iPod Touch 5G in order to obtain the remoteless and micless earpods? It's useless with non-Apple products obviously.
    Edit: I read that Apple didn't make one without the remote and mic. Seriously, Apple?

    Making them without the mic would be a negligible price savings to the customer (the whole assembly probably costs a dollar at most, if not less) and would require separate assembly lines and packaging, which would likely negate any savings from excluding the mic.
