This is what I use now cause that skull candy in line controller does suck. It is just like the beats inline controller works great.

inline 3.5 cord
The inline cord issue is totally frustrating. Skull Candy's cord is an embarrassment to the company. Terrible for their brand. Able Planet makes one too. I have had it before and it is not great, but I just a bought again - hoping it works better than skull candy:

|hikeswithdogs||Not sure about their helmets(they look cool buddy has one) but their Audio system is built by Plantronics which is FAR FAR superior to any of the junk from skull Candy or Red.|

|miles1717||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.|

|snowklinger||there are skullcandy ones made for giro, and a couple other brands made for smith, etc. they are all basically the exact same, they are all (for the most part) compatible across brands, I have a red helm, but went through 4 pairs of red speakers before just giving up and going with the skullcandies - which get horrible review from everyone (as a brand) but for helmet dropins they work, which is alot more than i can say for the redphones i tried.|

Found one, Shure makes high end headphones for musicians and audiophiles so you know they'll be no loss of quality and the mic will be good.
Shure Americas | Earphone Accessory Cables
Purchase here 49$(yea I know a little on the spendy side)
2 year warranty keep your receipt , I've personally had good luck with Shure products and they have great customer service
They make another model for "other" devices like maybe Android phones or generic MP3 players ect

Just posted this question on the front page of Backcountry.com's facebook page, maybe they have some ideas.
