V-Moda to add mic control to Vibe Duo

I've made it pretty clear that I'm not exactly thrilled with iPhone's damned recessed headphone jack. Just because there's a reasonable explanation behind it (exposed ports break) doesn't mean that I have to like it.

I've made it pretty clear that I'm not exactly thrilled with iPhone's damned recessed headphone jack. Just because there's a reasonable explanation behind it (exposed ports break) doesn't mean that I have to like it. I'd still prefer a re-engineered headphone jack that sits flush (or what about a wider opening?) so that I can use earbuds that don't sound like I'm in a tunnel made of tin.

And while I'm at it, what's up with the white headphones, Apple? Its already been deftly pointed out that there's no white anywhere on iPhone (or the iPod touch for that matter). What's up with the ugly mismatched earbuds? Can we please get a black set bundled with iPhone and the touch? Most people past sixth grade would prefer black over white.

That said, I was pretty psyched to hear that my favorite iPhone buds (with mic) V-MODA's Vibe Duo are due for an upgrade – real soon now. Word is that V-MODA will launch VIBE Duo Control in mid-September, featuring a button built into the microphone for answering and ending calls, playing and pausing music, etc. Just like Apple's jive.
