I'm having the same problem with the Skullcandy Single Shot in-line controller. The speakers are great, but the button can be hard to use with gloves on. Even worse, the controller stops working after an hour on the mountain. It works great when I test it at home, but as soon as the cold moisture hits it, it craps out. I'm looking at just replacing the controller with a simple cord, and then buying the Burton MixMaster gloves. It would mean no microphone, but that's fine with me. I'm more interested in having easy control of the music--I want to be able to turn it off quickly when needed. Just feels safer that way.
