In-line remotes seriously decrease the lifespan of headphones. The ones that I have work fine but every now & then the sound cuts out of one ear, so I have to spin the volume control wheel a little bit to fix it.
Other than that they've worked very well for the past three years and I'm too cheap to replace them!
I may end up just cutting the remote off & re-soldering the strands back together. I just need a wire stripper & an iron...
