    What earbud or headphone do you use for:
    • Listening to music
    • Phone call, can accept incoming calls, adjust volume?

    I bought 10 different under $10 earbuds with mic & vol control from eBay and only one has satisfactory sound : XIAOMI its box says:
    • 12 Ohm
    • 93 dB
    • 3 mW
    • 20-20,000 Hz

    but I am not even sure if it is genuine XIAOMI or not but it really looks genuine

    Earbuds require less power to use for the phone itself. Headphones has better sound. It's your decision which is more important to you. Good earbuds are hard to find. It also depends on what kind of controls you'd like with the purchase.

    This was what I purchased. The Monster iSport Bluetooth sports earbuds

    PROS:
    5+hrs of listening time
    sweat resistant when working out
    BT, wireless so you can almost roam around your house
    built in wings, does not fall out

    CONS:
    No foam tips included. (Foam can form fit to your ear canal for better comfort and stays in better, seals out noise better. you can hear your heart beat)
    lacks bass
    need to recharge

    I'm using the LG Bluetooth headphones. I buy them at BestBuy and the current model I am using have retractable cords.
    So basically I tuck the headphones under the collar of my work shirt and when I need to listen I pull on the buds and the cord pulls out about 5 inches or so.
    When I pull them out of my ear I can retract them instead of letting them hang and get caught on things. Plus they are stealth when I retract them.

    The battery lasts 8+ hours.
    I was worried about the cord wearing out as I pull them out and retract them multiple times per day but I have been careful with them and so far so good.
    I realized that with the style where the buds hang by the cords I would get them hooked on things such as when I take my work backpack on and off, etc. So these might actually last longer for me.

    I use a Sennheiser CX-180 Street-II. The sound is surprisingly good for it's price point. It doesn't have a mic though, it's just for listening purposes.
