    Hello there,

    Does anyone know of any decent earbud headphones with volume control that are avaliable for under £25?

    Thanks,

    Hi Phil

    Most manufacturers have stopped adding variable resistor in line volume controls as they effect sound quality negatively whilst costing more because of the extra component. This is why there are a lot less around, the Apple three button controller works differently and is only fully compatible with iPod, iPhone and iPad. These are normally a lot more than £25 because they have Apple licensed technology inside which adds even more to the final cost.

    I can only find these and similar, I would not expect these to be great:(

    Argos £8.95

    Have a look at this though -

    www.headphoneswithvolumecontrol.com


    This website seems to be American but if you are in the UK you could find the products from Amazon UK :)

    Hope that helps!
