The Scosche IDR650M in-ear headphones work perfectly with iPhone 4, including remote volume control. Since they were primarily marked for iPod use, with a “works with iPhone” mention on the packaging, I was a little nervous whether or not they’d function properly. After testing earlier today, I can confirm they do.
Currently only Safari & Google Chrome supports this functionality.
This plugin gets the same result in Firefox & Internet Explorer.

I bought this on iBooks while I was on the train a few weeks ago. With rave reviews and a USD $6.99 price I though it would be a safe way to experience online on the train book buying on the iPad and make the 2 hour trip seem a little shorter. It worked out pretty good on all occasions. The book buying was easy, USF $6.99 was an excellent price and it was the first actually good new fantasy book I read in a long, long time.
If your Google Maps aren’t showing, chances are you’ve fallen victim to the tick! In the most recent v2.x version of the Google Maps API, the function tick() is missing. Make you maps work again by inserting this snippet of code before you include Google Maps:
My daughter is developing an interest in music. She uses an second generation iPod shuffle. Of course I limited the maximum volume (you can do this in iTunes when the iPod is connected). The Apple earbuds don’t really fit her, so I went looking for some kid-friendly headphones. The iPod volume limiting made me think that this should be built into headphones instead of players. A quick Google search gave me the Griffin MyPhones, which do exactly that: they limit the maximum volume regardless of what the player does. My daughter will love the fact that she can decorate these herself, and she’ll be protected from overly loud volume settings. Also, they sound pretty good for headphones in this price range.
After being disappointed by the Apple in-ear headphones (no bass, I returned them to the store), I went looking for a set of in-ears that would give me better sound than the standard iPhone buds, and isolate outside noise. I saw good reviews for the Scosche in-ears on the USA Apple site, but there was no vendor for these in The Netherlands. A search on eBay gave me a seller in the UK that was offering the IDR650M for EUR 18 (including shipping), in a slightly damaged packaging. That looked like quite the steal! They arrived 3 days after I ordered them, the packaging looks just fine to me and the headphones are excellent. Plenty of bass, and way more detail than the headset that comes with the iPhone. Recommended, especially if you can get them this cheap!
