    Hi all. I am looking for new headphones that also have a microphone so I can use them for calls as well as listening to music. I do not like the bulky hairband headphones and I prefer something small like clip over ear type ones. Unfortunately the usual earphones that come with mobiles do not stick inside my ears if there is no support as they fall out (annoying ear shape, I know!).

    And yes, one more thing - I want the headphones wire only to be as long that it can reach from my trouser pockets up to my ears for aesthetic reasons. I know I am asking for too much here

    So dear tech geeks, do you have any suggestions for me?

    Or may be I should consider getting Bluetooth headphones? The ones that hook over ears.
