V-Moda makes some decent stuff. right now they are selling both in-ear monitors ($35) and over the ear closed headphones ($75) at Costco. both options have the mic and the push to talk button on the cord. for the money you will not find a better solution. both sound great. You are looking at well over $100 before you find a better solution.
