The Frends The Coupe earbuds are a great product. The cloth wire insulation is more aesthetically pleasing than the rubber or plastic insulation on most earbuds. The buds themselves also have a chic look. The pause/play button on the wire is subtle and seems to work well with an iPod. I'm not sure, but I believe there is a built-in mic as well, which works magnificently when the earbuds are plugged into the computer for skype. I imagine the mic works work equally well for an iphone or other smart phone (which I do not have).
It's a simple product, for basic needs, but I would definitely recommend.
