I bought the first Nixon Wire 10 headphones when they cam out a few years back and loved them! Though the cloth covering the wire was a horrible distraction and the lack of mic with iPhone control was a disappointing annoyance that I didn't appreciate until I didn't have it.
These FIX all that! Although these are the 8mm divers the sound quality is just about equal to the wire 10, and the PU covering the wire eliminates the background noise (but not completely). The mic and controls are easy to find while on my bike commute to the clinic and most importantly my wife can hear me clearly on a phone call while I am speeding through the urban jungle.
