I know Monster <shudder> makes one. I saw it at the Apple store a few weeks ago, but I couldn't bring myself to purchase it. I think Shure made one a few years back.

If you want a whole-unit solution, the Etymotic HR-5s (I think that's the number) come with a mic built in.

IIRC, the Ety's were just well reviewed in the latest Stereophile mag. Dare I say, it but some of the newer Monsters have some decent reviews like the Copper ones, I think.

It's not that Monster makes bad products, it's how they market, and price their average to slightly above-average products.

The HF-2 is the model you're talking about. They have the built in microphone.

Hi,
On a side note I was looking for the best noise cancelling headphones to be used 95-100% with iphone or ipod. I would like to keep it under $200, but I would go up to around $300, if there was an amazing pair. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can research these closed cans to start and pick the one you like best. These all will isolate sound pretty well and there are a variety of different sound signatures. These headphones range from $70 - $200+ USD approx.

AKG K271 MKII
Audio Technica ATH-M50
Sony MDR 7506/V6
Shure SRH840
Beyerdynamic DT770 (32 ohm)

There are quite a few others too...
