    I just got the Bose MIE2. Totally awesome sounding and the mic works with Droid X. Good sound quality from the mic too. (Tried Shure SE115m+ and Skullcandy 50/50 but the mics didn't work.)

    I have the MIE2i also. They worked fine for a while, but now the mic and middle button don't work and the volume + - buttons stop and start the mp3 player not to mention the mp3 player activating when I plug them in now. I plug my RocketFish joints in and the mic and buttons work fine. Oh! To add insult to injury, I plug the BOSE into my son's phone and they work fine. Any ideas on what's going on? I Think it's phone.

    I've already browsed newegg.com without any that had good reviews (main reason I will buy something is based off reviews, hence this thread).

    And two other things I suppose: I'm trying to stay in the $40-60 range AND these will be serving as my main mp3 playback.

    Thanks for any responses.
    Try the RocketFish (BestBuy brand) earbuds with mic. They work fine, I had these before I got the BOSE mie2i's which don't work any more.

    Although I wouldn't expect too high of quality when you try to pack everything into such a small frame.
    I recently purchased a pair of the Skullcandy 50/50s and the mic did not cooperate with my Droid X nor the buttons... I looked on the packaging and I don't know if this matters or not but they're made specifically for Iphones. I was just curious but what phone were you using the 50/50s with?

    What's the price range for the Bose MIE2? and can they be found at Best Buy or Newegg?

    I got mine at Radio Shack for $130 so it looks like Best Buy is the place to go right now for the Bose units. BTW, I feel they are worth every penny as far as sound quality goes.

    Fractal Friend: You have the Bose MIE2 and the mike works for you? I have the same ones, used to use them on my iphone. I've now bought a DroidX and the mike from the Bose MIE2 does not work. What's going on for me that isn't going on for you? I followed instructions elsewhere here on the board to set the sound for TTY VCO.

    I tried the Skull Candy 50/50's on my Droid and Droid 3 and the mic fails to work. Jack configuration on Motorola Droid's (1, 2, X, X2 and 3) not compatible.
